Default Tr6

i used to rebuilt these in the 80,s 90,s as a hobby
they were quite rotten back then
i even used to paint them myself (cellulose back then)
i used to buy them for 500
and sell in that condtion for 2500 - 3000
if only i had saved them all

you have a beautifull looking TR6 there and id love another especially like that one

enjoy

Ok ok I admit it - it was me lol
I always fancied a final edition S8 and as a lot of you know this particular one is a lovely example and couldn't have been looked after by a better owner than David. She's now tucked up next to V8 GUD and may well get bestowed the S8 GUD number plate shortly! Just a personal note to thank David for being the perfect gent to deal with and putting up with the vagueries of the weather until my delivery driver could collect it today!

Ian/IT's clue was a bit of giveaway, I think (if you didn't know already...)
