It's tough to be fussy when there's only 3 known such cars in existence, but I don't think the exaggerated rear end works well with the narrow body. The wide body versions however... :drool:


That has been the debate since the car arrived, the wider body looks better however this is the only narrow body car.

Easier decision on what to do with this car....

What does this mean? Break it for parts? :sad:

Why not make it a wide body, (and paint it white like Steve suggested)?


It’s a Martini being restored

Paint it black, convert to RHD, retrim in black and white pasha, drop 300bhp mittelmotor engine in, add electric Aircon... Perfection (for me at least).
