I am the new owner of Cup 138. I did note all the above issues but got it at a price that I can face tackling the issues! Unfortunately the previous owner did not appear to have been an enthusiast and there are a number of things to put right. I will take it one step at a time. Got some poly bushes for the rear. Going to fit new thermostat, spark plugs and going into garage tomorrow for diagnostics cos I think lambda playing up. Once running a it should I shall then have a go at bodywork - although not too bad really. I had a lovely fiat coupe but sold it recently and then bought rx8 -Bored with that - no noise,juicy and too refined!! Rest assured number 138 is in good hands.
