Hi Neil,

Nice looking 996TT. I used to have one of those, sold it to Porkie actually. Get yourself an Exige, then get a Caterham, it seems it's where we all end up.

Haha thanks Sean

I remember when the S1 exiges first came out there was someone local that had one and mind thinking it looked more like a race car than a road car , since then one has been on my need to own list .

In the same way when i first seen a escort cosworth on the road they really stood out , then after getting the doors blown off my subaru by Kev Sharps old beast I had to have one.

The last one was the slowest, highest miles and cheapest after I had taken all the carbon bits off. But it was only due me around 9k at the end and the same car would be worth 20+ now.

Lovely set of cars. Dabbled with a 3 Door many years ago, same thoughts on current values but you can't foresee where it will go and we all have had a reason for selling at the time. :)
