Ant 15 ?

Post by BlueRover » Wed Aug 19, 2015 6:56 pm

I pass this house on my way to and from work. In the drive there are three 800 Mk2 fastbacks, at least 2 have excellent private plates, the third wasn't there tonight for me to check it.
I just want to know if the owner is a member on here. If I don't get to know on here I'm going to pop down on Saturday to have a looksee. One is a really unusual yellow colour so I am quite intrigued. They all look well cared for, are always clean and the two in the drive tonight are kitted out with Sterling alloys.
Not to give away the actual location I will say it's west of Manchester.

Well, I travel from Bolton every day but not via Wigan, closer to Manchester, a lot closer.

Close enough. I am hoping the owner is a member on here so I don't have to give a precise location as I don't want a lot of people bothering him ( or her) except me of course :roll:

Lucky guess! :lol: :lol: :lol: Only place i know in the Manchester area except Eccles and that's the wrong direction unless you want a Dead Fly Pie! Oh yeah - and Macclesfield but that's not even close really.

All of it is about a 4 hour drive for me on a (very) good run so i certainly won't be bothering anyone with a neon yellow 800 or whatever it is!
Cheers,
Dave

Saw a Neon yellow, de-seamed, de-handled, blacked out, slammed, weed-eatin, 3-spoke alloyed, underlit Montego once...
... which was nice.

That is my intention. It's a proper (albeit subdued) yellow too. And I have now seen the third one tonight and it's red. So from left to right it's white, red and yellow and they're all Sterlings and from 25m look to be in first class fettle.

I met a chap at POL this year (Lee) who worked for a bus garage owner in the north west (Manchester area) who restored old classic buses and had a bit of a thing for 800's.

The chap worked for this garage owner and was employed in painting the coachwork and he explained that the owner allowed him and his work colleague to bring the car down for a day out. It was an early mk 2 vitesse fastback in black, K plate if memory serves. He explained that this chap owned about 20 different 800's and sometimes had his guys paint a car in a colour he wanted if he found one in the right condition and trim level.

This may be him?
