  1. Back in the day, my best mate’s brother was bought one of these brand new for his 21st birthday. Phone call from his Dad, your present is on the drive. I just remember him (and us as 16 year olds) tearing around Wilmslow in the UK where we lived in it, one of us stuffed in the back despite it having no seats, yet to him and his Dad it was ‘just another 911 that was cheaper than the rest’ (his old man had a 930 at the time). Think he lasted less than a year with it. If only we’d realised at the time what it represented.
  2. Yeah saw the announcement as it was posted, properly pissed off about that as it’s been a fantastic event for the last couple of times I’ve been over. Without the Victoria Park area I can see the whole rally event being a flop as well, where the hell will they park all the cars up safely?
  3. John Orchard (polorot) is your man for local knowledge, we did a fantastic run around that area last Sunday. Perfect roads for our cars that’s for sure.
  4. Perfectly understated sleeper, nothing shouty until you give it the beans. The best kind of car imo. It’ll be awesome round town 👍😎
  5. The look and stance of it’s stunning Tom. Worth the very long wait?
  6. I’m in, back from the UK so I’ll see you Satdee 👍
  7. You would be surprised at what really good ones are changing hands for offmarket, but I agree it’s not worth what he’ll have spent. Bear in mind a decent spec Sherwood or Millington engine will be £35k+, really good Millington is £50k complete, we have a full Gp4 kit for a Mk2 that was about $7k just for the fabrications and it’s not hard to see where the money goes. Buying a fully built Mk1 or Mk2 Gp4 car is waaay cheaper than building one....
  8. Knowing how much it cost a friend of mine to build his Mk1 rally RS1600 and the level of engineering details in this car, I can’t see much change from £250-300k. Possibly more.
  9. Genius, thanks. I couldn’t find anything but was convinced I’d registered, now I know I had 😁
  10. Yeah the Targa roof seals are damned expensive 😕
  11. Pretty sure I saw that GT3 earlier today near Brighton, nice looking car
