Pete bought his Roadster in July last year. It has a heritage shell but no history apart from a V5 from 1987. Writing to this previous owner brought no reply. If you know of it please get in touch.

Martyn bought this car about six months ago. He has an interesting story about its restoration but has little history. It’s on the Register and I have tried contacting the listed previous owner but no luck so far. If you know of it please get in touch.
