    Bloody hell Kev.

    I took one look at all those wires and the BMW engine and got flashbacks to my first BMW powered AK. Absolute frigging nightmare.

    I now need to go and find my safe place......

    Cheers,

    Yes and no. I’m nearly the same height. The dome in the roof wasn’t an issue, the fact that the door forms part of the roof and as I shut the door it was at eyeball height was the problem. At least it allowed me to cross another already unobtainable dream off my bucket list.

    David, a dropped floorpan in a Southern GT chassis would enable someone of your height to sit quite comfortably in a GT40. Once in, they are surprisingly comfortable and roomy (ok, that’s a bit of a stretch) a removable steering wheel and being comfortable with stepping on the seat make ingress and egress more acceptable (although never elegant). My all time favourite cars (I’ve had at least 12 GT40 replicas over the years)

    You snooze you lose, it was the lack of a spare garage to build it in that really made me hesitate, wasn't too fazed by the amount of work, it would have been a long term project

    12! Crikey Simon, I now assume you are either a lottery winner or very good at striking a frugal deal (They're a bucket list car of mine, but I'll need to lose oooooh about 10st to get in one, I reckon!)

    No doubt about it the buyer has got themselves a bargain.
    Had I not downsized last year it would be mine now.

    If it had been a MK1 replica, I would be in a lot of trouble with the wife right now. At that price, for a registered car, I'd definitely take a beating with the rolling pin!
    DAX Cobra. May contain nuts. Always read the label.

    How much do you think a Q plate would devalue it by?
