Thanks Mike, I have nothing on this since 1989 so that's a useful addition of info .
Also no photo - any chance of scanning one of the mags ?

Well spotted John, but it was on the previous page of this thread :D
This is EUJ 150C, last seen in Norfolk in 1988 so another one coming out of the woodwork.
The list is up to date but I haven't had time to reduce the file to post it ...

Do we know anything about this?

Scanned from a book about personalised numberplates... the details of which I have stupidly mislaid :oops: . Will endeavour to find it if of interest.

Reading through the list of coupes I notice that ......

Chassis 519, PNP 607E, Golden Sands, V6 is down as residing in Devon. ( it is the coupe that appears on the Top Gear programme with Tiff Needel)

I sold the car, perhaps 15 years ago?, to a guy living in Norfolk. Last time I looked it up ( 3 years ago?) it was undergoing a body off restoration and there were pictures online. Last MOT , Dec 2017 and appears on a sorn now.

Sorry, a bit behind here.

LYX 173D is on the list 2013 ''exported?'', no photo so thanks for that. Was it exported ?

YRF 822C is listed as ''for sale '15-'18'' John Baldwin, Kettering. Photos from 2011-12 show the car in good condition ...

PNP 607E no recent news so that is a useful update .

RUA 1 YES! any info would be useful as it is unknown, as is CH Seward .
