Anyone seen my old 75 3300 V6
Hi all, just seen a wicked red 75 track day car on ebay and its kicked my backside in to gear to do something about mine. A few years back my car went into Alfatech Luton and as a result of whatever went on there in the end - i never saw it again.
I have owned the car since 1994 and used Rob several times over the years for suspension work, parts, etc so no problem there. About four years ago the original motor seized and knowing there was a 3300 engine at Alfatech the deal was done. Car went off and the work started, some problems arose (no need to go into them) when eventually the motor fired up and it never got any further. My car had been there about 18 months and i bumped into a friend who used to work there years ago, he explained the sorry tale of a break in/vandalism etc and asked me if my car was still over there. This had happened about 3 months previous so i started to try and find out what had happened. Phone lines were dead so a quick visit found the alfatech building was now a van breakers or something. A bit of detective work and eventually a phone was answered and told that my car had not been damaged (unlike some of the others) but the keys had gone missing. My car had supposedly been impounded and it was in the hands of an insurance company who would be in touch - no contact was ever received, phone numbers disappeared etc etc and to be honest i was busy with work moving to a new workshop and that was that.
The car was well known around the Aylesbury area in its day - Red 1989,facelift 3.0 V6 Veloce, 17 inch 5 spoke wheels, lowered suspension (v low), factory sunroof and cloth trim. Last time i saw it (approx 3 years ago) the 3300 engine was fitted,big bore full stainless exhaust fitted but rear box was in the boot as the rear skirt needed modifying to suit. The car was up and running but had an oil leak from the oil pressure sender and needed stripping down again to sort it out.
Please note - this is not a thread about having a go at Alfatech or what i could or should have done about it at the time,it just sort of struck me - i wonder if anyones seen it or knows of its whereabouts. The 75 is currently sorn and i have all the relevant paperwork,registration etc in my possession. I would appreciate a PM with any information or to confirm the reg no. as i would obviously like to have the car back - if anythings left of it.
Thanks in advance - Best Regards
