  • Does #248 still exist?

    Met up with an ex-Turbo owner yesterday. He had #248 (G575 EDY) from when it was 12 months old until about 4 years ago. Had many fond memories and did a lot of touring in it, as well as musical kit shifting for his son! He showed me pics of the car when the family visited the Isle of Mull! So just wondering if the car is still around or whether it has seen better days and been scrapped?

      Thanks Mal, the chap thought he had seen it a while ago and it was blue, so that would confirm that point. Wonder if the SORN indicates its in for a rebuild or reached its end of life.

            Hi Pete

            I know this was years ago now but do you have any point of contact with this person who you met up with?
