Cracking video review that. His presenting is getting better for sure and some interesting snippets like the side door badges.

Good to see #012 is back on the road. Surprised no-one else has mentioned that steering wheel yet ... the standard vavona wood against the olive makes me twitch! :lol:

Far as I know, only 3 of the 4 original UK RHD's have been seen in recent times. #013 was apparently in Jersey many moons ago but not heard of it recently.

Then there's also #024 (RHD ALPINA Green) Jap Import which sold last year and also #035 (LHD Black Sapphire) which are also in the UK.

Ha, the steering wheel made me twitch too but I was trying to block it out :)

Borrowing a pic from Dave's V8S, it needs a wheel like this as I bet it's impossible to find one in Olive wood.

Just in case anyone is in need of a specific bit of trim in the right colour, this company can re-veneer it: http://www.silvercrest-woodtrim.co.uk/w ... tions.html

I was looking for a TPMS piece of trim to match my wood and they quoted £150 to re-veneer it so not impossible.

Ah, my old B10. Wish I still had it!

Naz is doing a good job looking after the expensive jobs it seems

:D :shock:

I randomly bumped into one of the other v8s tourings with barney at classic heroes a couple of years back. Can't remember what the story was, but it was tucked in a distant corner, outside, looking a bit sad...

I'd guess it was #020 (the Pine Green one) or at a push #035 (the Black LHD one) as they've both appeared in Classic Heroes social media feeds in the past. Seems unlikely it would be #013 (the other Messing one) as no-one seems to've heard of that in years.
