Quite a bit of history on that one in the register, its an 1800, been through a few colours, last time it was spotted it was green and in Crewe.

Just an update on Firenza WVX 381L. The vehicle is kept in a compound in an area that is totally off limits to the public. However, a mate of mine who works nearby managed to sneak over and grab a couple of photos. Enjoy. :D

I thought I recognised that plate, I saw it when green in Crewe. I seem to recall the seller at the time said it had opening rear quarter glass. Nice to see it's still there, though, it's years since I saw it.

If it had opening rear quarter lights it doesn't appear to have anymore unfortunately.
