I've only ever seen one one the road. It passed me while we were driving on a dual carriageway, but it didn't sound anywhere near as good as a Capri sounds!

Yes, I believe they are made up from parts of all kinds aren't they. Allegro door handles and suchlike. There is still apparently a large supply of available parts from the stocks they had left over from back in the day.

Well Paul, being parked there so early suggests it was parked overnight and as it had gone about the same time I seen it out driving other day the evidence points to being used daily. How cool is that
There was actually some Car Detaiing adverts in the rear side window so maybe the owner works in the car trade too. I must investigate this more as could be a useful contact...and I want a ride in his DMC-12
