with the front down it reminds me a bit of the metalflake blue one that was in Street Machine (I think) in the early 80s.
Very cool.

I expect some of the more mature members will remind us exactly who owned that one and when.

Hi Vince
Yeh it was but not ready for the road by about a week but we took it anyway just to check it out lol.. Love the consul to,my dad had one. Also when i was a kid, there used to be a lemon and white one parked on a drive beside the Hendon way north London. It was jacked up with mags and red diff n light. That was part of the cause of my madness now i guess, be great to know who owned it or if its still about..

could it be this one ???

Well done for the speed but im afraid not. Mine was running around for some time but i never see it anywhere befor then? I was a regulare to chelsea cruise etc and anything on paper but never came across it anywhere. the guy i got it from said his uncle done the welding etc so im guessing he drove it when he rememberd he had it, one of those type. H e did'nt know much about it and it had loads wrong with it so i took it off the road within weeks. From that point life took over, wives, kids houses etc. i finnished the car a few times in different guises but never ran it due to devorce or redundancy, oh and another kid lol. I put my home n kids befor my hobby but i never sold it, just shelved it lol..
