laughed when I saw this 'what to pay' section:

so what do you think, personally I am not sure what to think about the model getting more exposure, on one hand, I think the car needs an hour of glory, but on the other, I am worried that it will lose its 'hidden gem' status (in my mind at least)

Will buy it, scan it, add to collection. Probably tear the whole article apart like I do with most!

Really should do an owners club what to look for!

I knew they were undervalued, but it must be the first car I have ever known that decreases in value the better the condition
although to put a different spin, the car can now be put in the same bracket as all those barn-find Astons and Ferraris, that seem to sell for more covered in dust than in prime condition :lol: (although I do prefer an unrestored car)
