I know it was only a quick gidday when I meet you, good to hear from you again. Would be good to catch up sometime and chew the fat. You have a very special car, outstanding colour and condition and being first on the road in NZ. In 2003 I remember one of the last for sale at McMillans. It was blk/blk had $180k on it if I remember correctly.
I had been looking for a car in NZ for sometime but nothing had shown up until I had got into my application. I had spoken to an owner of a 1999 car on Trademe but he was pretty unhelpful so I pressed on with the app.
As you can see from my previous post I have a car in mind.

Got my car back today, it's great to be driving a v8 again time to go Ford and Holden hunting.. Mental note to self, do not again try and drive 480bhp manual car with lightened internals whilst wearing flip-flops!!

Height adjustable suspension required low volume vehicle compliance other than that and new brakes everything else was fine. It definitely needs some better brake pads though, will speak to race brakes when I get some cash.

Spent most of today making excuses to drive about the place, people are driving slower here than in the uk and I'm sure there are way more police driving around. The car is still an animal although it's harder to go mentalist with it, the top of 2nd is already way over the limit - not so much fun in the urban jungle when over 4k is where it's all happening. Even so I don't think I will be pulling the cams any time soon!

Nick, get up early Sat morning and go out West and up SH16, breakfast at Welsford. You know it would do the car some good.
