Recommended Posts

According to the DVLA F729 hasn't been taxed since May 96, and lji isn't coming up at all. This may be because the plate was transferred to a different car.

Gary - I can confirm the Evo kitted Coupe is safe and sound - it's partly restored at the moment and still with the same guy you sold it to.

You should come to the pub meet the owner attends regularly.
