Apologies in advance for my crap photo skills.

Hard to believe but I bought this sight unseen on ebay almost 5 years ago. After many many small jobs and a respray at time money allowed it is finally on the road.

Had my first proper drive over the weekend, great fun. Handles very very nicely and goes well enough - isn't so good on stopping mind!

Very beautiful car! Love the pinstripe interior. I wish we had more of it over in the US. a lot of ours is plan, something the red and blue Plaid. rarely, see Pinstripes.

Just not as cool as the Pinstripe, the red and Plaid is cool. but for us to restore the material is very costly, and many people just destroyed the poor 924 over, I went to look as a few over the year that were for sale, and they were hammered. one even had a slung rod and a hole out the oil pan.
