@Sparky I see you had to move your Daytona out the way. That Esprit is lovely 

 

Was your  first job putting the 2no back stripes on?

That's not gonna happen this year.  And the last time it did, video hadn't been invented.

So I'm left with the fascinating conundrum of a very shiny engine, with loads of its ancillary bits in boxes, that's apparently been rebuilt but never turned over.  So many ways to approach this...

Look on the positive side - at least it’s almost in one piece. The S4s didn’t have engine, box, fuels tanks or oil coolers in place

That would be easier.  This one could lull you into a false sense of security.  Think I'll send in a camera first.

Then tell him it's ferked and shift it to Dan with a huge drink.  😁

All will be revealed in 2019.

Meanwhile, I can confirm that the mysterious box on the roof stereo is...

Just back from holiday and got an email from Andy Graham with the Certificate of Provenance for the car. It is the 2nd of 4 UK Monaco White cars with Brown full leather and roof stereo (FYEO spec) across all model years. 6 RHD cars were white with brown leather (half or full). It is the 28th UK Turbo and the 7th non Essex production car produced. Now I just need to finally see it in the flesh
