lol , yeah a little bit more but Robs not far off . The spares add a lot value to the car + the software to run it , just think of the replacement cost of gearbox if you didn’t have a spare .
Also being original is valuable, there are lots of ex show cars running V8 DFVs or wrong V10s .

That's really interesting, thanks for sharing. Must be an event even before a lap takes place. Although I'd love a couple of laps :D

I did actually make two versions of a table with those alloys, one lit underneath and one is my nuts and bolts trolley dolly in the garage :thumbup:

How about a demo run at lunchtime on easter Monday?

I’m sure it could be arranged if your Dad is game :cool:

That would be great but sadly not possible at the moment , if the 98 is not sold hopefully it will be going with his M189 to Imola for the Minardi weekend http://minardiday.it/
Great weekend last year .

Seen some of the endplates resold on eBay recently, looks like you got a really good buy ;-)
