Mk1 number two, and car number (right at the moment) 8.

For now it's getting tucked away for a rainy day. The eventual plan is to tidy it up, then put the R-Sport rims and R-Sport / Oettinger front spoiler on it, and leave it more or less as-is.

1979 343 DL Manual. 11k miles from new. The nosecone is toast, but apart from that it's very, very tidy for a car which is near as dammit 30 years old.

cheers

Good man!
Well found.

Sure it'll look the propper part when you get round to fiddling it up.

Hmmm, if I sell Fake, and buy Foggies 343, and louvre, and 343 stickers...

Anyone want to buy Fake :lol:

I would be seriously tempted to put that louvre on my turbo if it was for sale, but I'm not sure a mk3 would work with it.

Electric mirrors are a possibility...and the nose cone is appealling. I'm guessing Shimon wants it for his Dad's yellow car. I have several nose cones, but a good silver one would be excellent for this new , and I could sell Shimon another...

I think I already have everything else on that list that I'm likely to want.

Surely Fake is your rally car, Chris? Slightly scruffy, and doesn't matter tooooo much if it gets bent...? This thing is a bit nice for rallying. I doubt it's going anywhere in a huge rush...

cheers
