    Agreed, bloomin’ lovely isn’t it?! We’ve been talking about those on another forum, after someone snapped a shot of this one in London:

    Virtually extinct here in the UK, only ones I can recall seeing in the metal were both in scrapyards.

    Cheers guys and thanks Spottedlaurel for the pics they will go straight in my collection.

    My names Ryan, and I'm from Christchurch New Zealand. I've been hooked on J-tin coupes since I was about ten years old.
    My Dad had a RT95 corona coupe which we spent countless weekends polishing (maybe it was just a ploy to get me to help, hmmmm.) and allways said I could have it when I got my licence. Untill some asshole stole it from the local mall carpark :evil: and twas never seen from again, probably
    sold for parts, was quite rare.

    So this car just came up cheap so I nabbed it, I'm also in negotiations on buying a GTO, will have pics of it next Saturday when I pick it up if all goes well....

    Ok the sale and pick up went well, got it cheaper than expected due to it not running, which took us about ten minutes to figure out it had a blocked fuel filter, after that was removed she ran great, much to the owners dismay, he probably was out of pocket on this one :lol: .

    Heres a quick few picks while Im out of the garage for five minutes, more to come....
