Hi.
20 years ago I built a Carrera GT replica from my 924 lux. It was UK registered as DWL324V. I sold it in circa 2005 to a guy who took it to Ireland. Several years ago I spotted it in a for sale add - not eBay or autotrader.
Anyway, it was white with black centre original Fuchs alloys. Red Carrera GT graphics on the front wing and rear. Black anti stone chip stickers on the front of the rear arches.
The interior was from a genuine Carrera Gt with red pinstripe that I bought from Ricky Caesar who at that time was a CGt register secretary I think - £600 he charged me for it! It had a flat bottom Nardi steering wheel.
I had also removed and spaced out the windscreen so it was flush with the frame just like a cgt. The bonnet scoop was also correctly moulded and set into the bonnet. Although I rebuilt it, the engine remained the original 2 litre non turbo.

Now, does anyone have any information or pictures of my old car? I don’t want to buy it- I’m just reminiscing and wondered what happened to it.
If anyone can help please share on here or via pm.
Thanks

A quick check on the DVLA shows it as un-taxed & tested since shortly after it last sold, so its sitting unloved or scrapped most likely

Sorry

Yes but it went to Ireland and was reregistered over there when I sold it. It could still be about. After all it was a show car in immaculate condition..
