Sorry no. I've never been able to afford older stuff!!! plus I was born in 1980!

Well I was born in '82 and my 1978 Renault 14 & my 1980 Fiat Ritmo were under £500 for the pair (not that they came together) with the Ritmo costing about 3/4 of the total. :wink:

Was the first Crown Will Holman's then?

Yes, It was the one they featured in the Mag and all went to the Retromobile show in. I went up and met them in Peterborough and came away £400 lighter but with a big smile on my face. Got all keen and took it to that years Japenese Auto Extravaganza!!

That's a pretty interesting fate, how did that come about? I know they're big into importing US models (they have a USDM scene importing pickup trucks and LHD Hondas and the like), but never heard of them doing "UKDM".

Mash, ave you got any pics of your current cars? I adore 1000's!

Here you go :D

The 1000 is currently the only roadworthy one in the UK and one of only about 4 survivors I think so it's fitting that it was the first one imported too.
