Wow, if only modern traffic jams were like those of the 80's/90's I'd be happy to sit in them rather than look at all the modern borning stuff.

That's an absolute gem of a car, keep it that way! I remember even their day they were hard to come by.

I had one exactly the same as that. Brings back some memories E66 CTO was the registration. Just had a quick check on the gov website and it looks like it’s scrapped or in someone’s garage.

I am a fan of these. Can recall seeing the same one regularly around 15 years ago, from what I can remember it had some kind of subtle chrome exhaust and thought it sounded nice at the time.

My dad had those sliders in a Nissan Cherry Jubilee back in the late 80s. Ciaran, being a Fermanagh man myself, it’s lovely to see an old Fermanagh car in such good hands. I remember Bertie Fisher buying two white 309 gtis, one for his wife, and one for his brother as a wedding present.

Keep the updates coming.
