Nightfire Si in Hedge End

Post by Captain Sensible » Tue May 17, 2016 7:31 pm

I passed a mint Nightfire Red Si, with a giffer spec AA badge in Hedge End, near Southampton today. I wasn't in my 800 at the time, I was driving an Irizar coach :D

Anyone on here?

Not me Sam - but then it wouldn't be seeing as i'm nearly 200 miles away! :lol: Could have been an old gimmer (Hampshire word for giffer) that has owned it from new and bought it as his retirement present.

Got my first ever 800, a 1986 D reg 820Si from Hedge End many moons ago, flew through its first MoT with me and by the following year the front subframe was rotten as a month old curry. Even secondhand subframes were £300+++ and like hens teeth to find, new ones were similar but even harder to find!

What's with the coach driving then Sam? :shock:
Cheers,
Dave

round that neck of the woods it could easily end up in water as well - Howards Way was filmed in and around Hedge End if you remember that from the 80s ish?
