" I guess GRX 309D driven by the late Graham Hill has slipped by you. If you have seen this car in person, as I have, or view any images on either the web or issue March 2005 of MiniWorld magazine you will clearly see the red tipped needle. There is a chance I suppose the car is not 100% acurate

I am loving the last sentence ! :lol: There's 100% chance that's not GRX 309D ! :lol: One thing I do like about the ex works Mini scene is it's not short on laughs.

Anyone see the comment in the MCR mag about 407ARX being for sale after its recent Top Gear 'restoration'? Recreation more like, even the vendor will tell you that it's a plate nailed to a shell and a load of parts collected over many years. £100k anyone?

There's a bit of a who-ha about that car on the Pistonheads forum.

Looks like the pointer found a home or perhaps it was a works part after all.

This is getting silly, but at least the bag is included.

That speedo is one of the most unpleasant, unoriginal, ugly abortions I have ever seen in my life!

Or maybe its out of the new WRC rally car :lol:

I used to collect stuff like this, but now I only buy the parts as the packaging is usually too expensive :lol:
