I have been informed that this is a MK1 not a MK1.5 :goodluck:

I know this car !!!, used to belong to ( if I recall correctly) a guy called Steve Smith, who lived in Enderby , Leicester!...one of 'our' group back in 1987/88, infact I very nearly purchased it in early '89...back then it was a very tidy car!. Good luck with it !.
Cheers Tony. :goodluck:

Try them again, should be working now :)

Interesting to know, you wouldn't happen to have any old photos would you?

Thanks Mike
