The real pisser is that round these parts there were several old ex works shells being driven around as family cars. Most found their way to good homes eventually. But one that I have mentioned a few times, lived in a garage in St Amand Drive, off Caldecot Road. Was there for seemingly years and years, slowly getting covered in old boxes, gardening tools and old furniture. Dad and mum were nice people, dad worked at MG and purchased the old shell and most of the guts. The dopey son was a wave short of a shipwreck - one of those what we call 'eyes are bigger than their bellies' who really didn't have a clue. He should have made do with an 850! Once he'd left home....., a couple of years later mum and dad downsized and remains of car went to the scrappies at Drayton........

Learned fairly recently that another bloke I know who lives on The Green at Steventon got the front brakes and some suspension bits from it not realising that it was a works shell. The only good bit was that another pal got his near new 998 brakes whe he put the S brakes on his Cooper.

Its bronze yellow. Ive been trying to trace the history of the GT and this photo is a good find. Definitely mine- all the little bits add up- Sunroof, aerial hole in the same place, number plate mounting drilled holes in same place, same broken indicator lens, same over-spray....Shame the number plates were not hanging up on the wall of the garage as that's the important bit that's missing. The photo was taken in Fareham in around 2014. Dont know who posted the picture onto fliker unfortunatly
