Thanks for the great information, I wonder were the Andretti car is now? it still shows up as being in the families possesion on the register site by Micheal said "they used to have one" we will probably never know, maybe in a private collection? Anyway I am going to continue to try and aquire UK #2 and will let you all know how I get on, if its too much of a resto job for me I will pass it on to someone who can do it justice.
Its a sad site to see it like this for sure, especialy as everything points to it being in good cosmetic condition when it was dumped, it probably suffered a mechanical issue and just never got repaired, my geuss is that its been there 10 years and the DVLA site says last taxed in 1996 so that stacks up.
I tell you what though, if I do get it, it will be a bugger to move after being sat for 10 years!
