I think you're mixing me up with Nick H mate, he had the Vortz, think he sold it too ;)

For the record, Nick H is better looking but as far as I know doesn't own a purple car... :lol:

That's another of those typical examples of the '......no, it's not for sale as I'm going to restore it in the Summer.....' They probably couldn't even mow the garden in the Summer

So..not scrapped, dumped or wrecked, but this was a neglected NOS Leyland Clubman shell I had, and sold via the forum :D a few years ago..........I think it ended up as a russet brown GT ?

Absolute sacrilege Dave! I would love to own a genuine ‘S’ and to see them going to waste is frustrating!
