My mechanic in Sussex has one, they are a pretty special car in my eyes.

Worth a good amount of money now too, looked on ebay at a few over here, just cant afford to buy one LOL.
Past 16v's: 89 Ph1 Black, 90 Ph2 Grey, 89 Ph2 Black, 91 Ph2 Grey, 91 Ph2 Black.

Now. 94 Datsun Silvia S14 rice rocket, 85 Peugeot 505 Turbo, 77 Ford Capri.

Jay, yeah he's stating at hendra! towed the caravan down with it!! when we went out for a spin saw a load of Hotrod's who all waved lol! and a 60's 2stroke Saab!

Jezzie, they fetch Silly money over there!! have a great following and many dont suffer the rust issues from here!
i'd alsways liked them but never been in one! such a cracking bit of design!!

a french family were walking past the house just after they got here, stopped and had pictures taken by the car, geoff popped out for a chat, and found out they were french (i guessed from how they were dressed lol!!), said they never see them in france, yet come to cornwall on holiday and see one parked up in the small village they are camping in!!

Say hello to Geoff for me, last time I saw him he was driving away from my house in the Cx estate after delivering the Bx to me :P

Timmo, surprisingly you never had a ride in one before, its very comfy, speed humps are had for breakfast by the DS's suspension.
