Thanks for the welcomes, I still have the V5 at home so will check the previous 2 owners (3 in total) when I get home from offshore tomorrow.
The reg ends CYD if that helps identify it. Any information on the car would be very much appreciated. I bought it from a couple of guys in Glasgow who deal in top end classics, they bought it recently at auction not realising it had a couple of paint and running issues so just moved it on at a bit of a loss . It has been left outside and the paint had faded, someone has buffed through to the primer on the sunroof and tailgate and the rest of the paintwork felt very rough, there are rust bubbles starting along the front edge of the bonnet and a few marks on the bumpers. The car was also running rough. Apart from that the car seems pretty much immaculate. When I got it home I checked for the rough running and it was a perished vacuum pipe on to the carb, sorted that and it is running sweet now. 2 polishes (3 on the bonnet) and the paintwork has come back fantastic and is more than presentable now. A new pair of new old stock rear spax shocks fitted as well to stop the bouncy rear. I am delighted with the car.
