Very happy with my new (since June) purchase , the LAST V8S alive !!
It took some time to get a V5C but I finally managed with the great help of Longers and my friend Tom (in UK)

The story behind it is a bit sad. Some years ago it was asked on PH to search for a car in Holland which belonged to his friend who died to young. I found the car for him but in the end it was not economical for him to bring the car back to UK. So last June I called the Dutch keeper to ask if it was still for sale. He said yes and I went viewing it. Although it looked a bit rough I could not resist..

The car has been standing outside for +/- 10 years and is a bit rusty in some places. Chassis seems in good condition. My plan is to get it running again and recondition it as much as possible. Will take my time ;-)

Congratulation Han! Will you have it ready for Spa? biggrin You might want to see if that number plate is still allocated to the vehicle in the UK. It might be worth a good few quid thumbup

Well done Han, looks like plenty of work to do but it will be worth it.

How did you persuade Anita to let you have a V8?
