Veering off topic a bit but it's Fabs related - Pete, is there any mention of a Maserati Sebring in the ledger you jammily managed to purloin...?

Here's Eppy with a Sebring, looks like it could be outside his Chapel Street, Belgravia pad...

There is a Maserati Sebring mentioned as Stock no. 25 but it’s crossed out. This was late Nov early Dec 64 with reg no. 105MYK.

I can't Nidge but definately a Morris Cooper S in the book and unusually was bought already 'Radfordised' and signified in the book with a big letter R next to it, so was registered the day Brydor bought it. Other cars were usually bought standard and sent to Radford for couple of months, some without saying who bought them.

Great pic of the Mazzer, not seen one before and yes its in the book but as already mentioned different reg. no other details and crossed out but without saying it was cancelled, so who knows?? Epstein certainly bought a few bazzin motors!

Just found these pics of my old Radford car, this is how I bought it, you can see the holes for the mouldings under the windows the extra holes in the bulkhead and the bashed in dash panel for the extra switches / clocks

Quick question gents - what's the name of the colour of Mike Nesmith's Raddie, is it 'Sable'...?
