To upload photos you need to use a hosting site. Photobucket is junk now so use Flickr.

Liking the sound of your 340 already.

I quite fancy a 3 door white 340 with an F7R conversion, debadged and no side mouldings.

Over here under the southern sun it is way lonelier still.
Ok, they restued less here but then there were a lót less sold.
From what I got from trafic is that there are only 2 variomatics with valid periodic inspection in the whole of Spain.

Only a few dozen 340s still registered but not 20 on the road.
The 360 is the same.
Because they were never raced/drifted over here, there are still 360 3-doors among those. Even one 343 4 speed red block and it is for sale. Has been for 3 years now.
