If you happen to spot my white RS500 on the Tickford stand, pop by and say hello ;-)

Already seen a 1071 restoration car here btw.

Had a chance to look at the green 1071 today - looks pretty genuine to me, and accepting 66 type doors have been fitted, wrong bonnet and partial deseaming, it seems to have all the correct features.

Not sure where I have seen it advertised before, but definitely have?

Thanks, it was the last prototype by Tickford so was sent straight to Germany Norman - as the Parts Validation Service Vehicle for the touring car championship. It was reimported in the early 90s, so it was given this age related plate - as it had never been registered on the road. Nice to know where it was first registered - thanks ;-)

Nice to meet Trevor today ;-)

Good to meet you too Andy. What a lovely car you have with a wonderful history. Nice touch with the Kernow sticker in the window. :)
