    Wouldn't kick it out of the garage on a wet Saturday night....

    Lots of interesting stuff about it here:

    It's a real shame the car was changed from it's original colour specs after being sold in 2012, especially having just had a full bare-metal paint job and replacement of the interior coverings merely a year earlier. If I were a cynic I'd say someone bought it to 'flip' and cash-in..... :-/

    Agreed, it's far more interesting as original
