    So... quick update, looks good for a used car, from my untrained eye everything seemed to be correct and original, paint had a few imperfections etc and could do with a bit of attention stone chips etc... Aaron from Greypaul is going to give it a ďFerrari 190Ē inspection and a cosmetic appraisal next Thursday... fingers crossed itís a green light then weíre good to go...

    Excellent

    Do remember its a 32 year old car, so it will have blemishes!!

    Don't be too excited and try and get some sleep between now and next Thursday

    Hope all goes well with your purchase. As a previous owner I bought a 1990 in 2003 with 3600 miles on the clock. Owned it for 7 years and put 15000 on the clock. Bought for 35k I sold it in 2010 for 34k shortly after the prices rocketed. ☹️ First thing to do is get a new set of boots as the old ones will have gone hard, had to get a matching set from America (Tirerack) as I couldn’t find any in the UK so that’s something to think about.
    Looked after by Geoff at Schiltech where it had regular services and cam belt changes and had no problems otherwise. Stuck in traffic your left leg will kill you as the clutch is a bitch. ��

    I Spoke to Geoff about that, his opinion was itís never shown any sign of weakness so why change something that isnít broken. I have asked the guys at Greypaul to give me an opinion on it when they do their inspection.
    Lets see what tomorrow brings...
