Wow, good news. I suspect you're going to get compliments and questions everywhere you go in it.

I’m competing at Prescott on 25th May - hope you can bring it along if you still have it, I’m sure the BOC would love to see it there on La Vita Rossa day!

Well done with the MOT. Although we never doubted it

Whilst the car is now mot'd, I have a handful of jobs to complete. Most of it is cosmetic, finishing touches. I need to fit the headlight covers, the additional bonnet catches, I fitted them to the boot already and what ever else comes to mind. I've remade a new grill, that can go on. I want to get a few miles on the car this week locally before going over to Bromyard on Sunday.

Breakfast Club gathering. Well attended when the weather is good. Get there early, people starting drifting away by midday . See Mick's link above.

Looks like the organisers of the Bromyard Speed Festival want me to attend now. They've sent me emails requesting my presence ! My wife says my head could explode at any moment !

Also had a number of calls regarding my for sale ad, one of which seems to be quite serious, so it might go quicker than I thought.

Lucky – I bought this month’s Octane and your car does look great in the advert.

Also, given the prices of some of the other cars for sale, you seem to have priced it well.

I’d certainly be interested to hear which magazine advert generated the most interest.

While I hope the sale goes well, I do hope you will be able to get a few ‘on the road’ photos before it goes.

Good luck, Paul.

The car is also listed in Classic & Sports Car magazine. In fact it's in twice as they have mentioned it in their classifieds " car of the month ".

I've also got an online ad running with carandclassic.co.uk with extra photos and a full description.

Weather permitting I'll be out and about with the car so I want to get some photos and video.

Carried on with a few detailing jobs today. The headlight covers are now fitted along with the grill. I ordered a new voltage regulator as the fuel gauge and petrol gauge were a bit inconsistent so that will solve that problem. The boot and bonnet catches are now fitted. I've given the underside of the bonnet a coat of satin black which looks much better.

The car looks great,

I am sure being alloy it will get a lot of interest, I did find this one for sale, not a lot of info about it in the advert but it has a 12 cyl engine fitted.

No mention on weather or not the body is glass or alloy but the wheels look spot on along with the bonnet hump. seats really do let it down but easily rectified.

Reasonable price as well.

Does look very nice. I don't know if the price is right, they also have a Maserati 350S replica with a similar theme but that is priced at nearly 250,000 Euro's.

Something isn't right with the floor height, the seats and the fact the bottom of the steering wheel is nearly touching the seat ! Look at where the floor is and the bottom of the steering wheel, maybe only 6 or 7 inches !

Looks like you'd need to be less than 4ft tall to be able to get your feet on the pedals too

The sun was out here so I managed to get some miles on the car. All good and no issues to worry about. Probably did about 40 miles and it certainly turns some heads going through town !

Bromyard Speed Festival tomorrow, I'm looking forward to that one.
