second photo was the first time it went to the track in christ knows how many years featuring rover v8 power.
i kind of liked it in silver but the new paint blows it into the 21st century.....

Another 2 old shots. I can't place a date on these, other than the fact that they are both certainly between 1977 and 1979. The negatives have suffered a bit over the years, so the pictures do look a bit scratched!
