Thanks Morris. Without knowing the rarity, a Coventry green V6 was my dream car back in the day when I was too poor to afford the insurance, let alone the car.
Before buying it, I went to see quite a few examples that to be honest, were sheds. And the wrong colour sheds at that.
I nearly wet myself one evening when I spotted the auto trader ad, freshly listed. Was viewing the car 12 hours later and put a deposit straight down, no negotiation other than a full tank.
Not used the car much as has been stored in a lockup 35 miles from me - however I'm just about to start renting a suitably splendid stone built double garage 1 mile away to keep her in.
Have had front wishbones changed, new radiator and hoses. Next job is to get the complete refurbed/red powdercoated rear suspension fitted (all powerflexed/lemforder bushes) new shocks & springs.
Car has done 78k, has recent cam belt/water pump, q2 and GTA clutch/flywheel. She's sat in my yard at the moment and is serving solely to encourage me to smoke more cigarettes, just so I can ogle her....
