Thanks for the kind comments guys - it certainly attracts attention on the road and when stopped !

One other thing the shopping trip did prove was that it can cope with speed bumps ok - I was worried about the rear under the engine where it’s so low on the coilovers but seemed fine taking it steady and slow over the bumps.

A belated Merry Christmas to everyone and an early Happy New Year.

Managed to get the car out today for the first time in a couple of weeks. Great fun and managed to get a couple of different location pics.







Had to get a couple of provisions from the shops on route and must have spent about 10 mins in the car park when I got back to the car talking to the onlookers and photo takers - I need to do better at factoring the attention it gets into my route planning!

On one of my recent trips out when I was parked up someone mentioned there was one of the original 1986 Rally Spec cars up for sale for over 500,000.

Found this on YouTube last night showing the same car ....

Not sure if I had that kind of money I would actually spend it on a real RS200 - reckon I’ve spent less than a 50th of that price getting mine to where it is today - nowhere near the same performance but puts a smile on my face :-)
