My neighbour had one in white, with the kit painted too, looked really nice. Always fancied one, just never happened.... :-(

Looking at getting one in the next month or so, I'm prepared to lay down £2,500 , however if I sell my car ( fiesta 1.25 ST Rep ) I'll have a lot more to play with , I see it as investment / rolling project having it restored, but ideally I need one with 70-90k so I can get a few years out of it , maybe slowly build up a replacement engine & box over 2 years whilst I own it

Most famous would have been this one featured in Performance Ford.

Does anyone know of an xr2 F340 TPG Tasman blue? I sold it a few years back and I'm trying to track it down.
