Got me another one ...

Postby Mikefido » Sat Sep 07, 2019 6:31 pm

Some rust problems ... but nothing approaching what my Gold was like when I got it!
A few dings and dents to sort.

Trouble is .. which one do I come to meetings in now?
This one has a much sweeter engine .. but then again it's only done half the mileage!

Glad this has surfaced on here, I was reading about its addition to the register earlier today, very smart indeed :D :D

It looks to be in very good condition in the pictures. It is the same colour as my car, the '40 suits Diamond blue. What's the rare feature the car has? - I admit I can't spot it! Nice car though.

I was in the process of replying to your comment on my Register thread until you deleted it. It’s the colour on that Spec which is the rarity.

I didn't want to have the same question in two threads and actually intended to delete the question in this thread, then deleted the wrong one. What is unusual about the specification? - it just looks to be a standard 93MY 3.2S?

Thanks for the interest!

I do like the colour, blues seem to suit the 40 (although this is a very 'silvery' blue).

Just insured it today, so I can now tax it ... and use it (but i'd like to get the rusty rear pillar sorted before i let the wife into the secret!!!
