Thought some folks might be interested, so I'd post up a thread.

















1993 British Racing Green Fastback 820 Vitesse.

Bought this 15th October 2011 from a good friend, who I know I can trust, who's fully as OCD about a car's condition as I am, with the added point that he can bring himself to polish a whole 800 by hand!

180PS Vitesse.

Bought at 91k, Good service history and in very good condition overall, as well as being polished half to death!

Since then I've sorted out the doorcards;







The sagging bumpers;







The cracked/inkrun suffering numberplates;




(yes, that's a staircase, we've recently had to have a new set put in, as we found that there's been precious little holding that set up for 150 years... :-|)

See, that seems like rather a lot of effort, for a hypothetical reward, to me.

:p

Also, I just tried to reply to your PM, but it's giving me an error, something about one of us having selected not to receive them. Either way, thanks for the tip off, looked into it a minute ago but the site seems to be down, so I'll try again later.
