Alex, would say this effort is worth to make a video !

 

a video with the video-guys Bibs had promoted within here not long ago ..the ones with this 'baby blue' S1 Exige and the cool *HD-quality camera work*  ..know what I mean ?

 

Or at least some more 'dynamic' -shoots ..with the car rack thing  ..all the details on your car would look good in this situation.  Just look out there in the web for the black V8'96 Esprit, with JPS decals on. (German registration, the car from Kai-Uwe A.)    ..done with the same technology behind

 

 

I could also talk with the *Format67.net* -guys   ..as I'm often around with JDM-cars and know several of the cars in those videos
