Is the multistory near an airport?

I'm sure you have checked but registered as SORN -and no MOT since February.

So big brother won't let it travel too far on the streets if the owner tries to drive it away.

Regards

MM

Thanks guys...

@MM no it's at Ocean Terminal (a shopping centre) in Leith, Edinburgh.

A Porsche owner came to speak to us about it yesterday at one of our big vehicle shows - she had noticed it parked up there over time gathering dust. She had very thoughtfully taken the pic then sought our coupe group out to pick our brains...



Thanks again, Photobucket...

I wrote to the old owners of mine. I found the original receipt of sale in the handbook with the first owners details on, and an old sorn declaration in the paperwork which had the 2nd owners details on. I included a picture of the car along with what I was trying to achieve (provenance along with the 'story' of the car) Both replied and it filled in a few gaps in the history.

won't the clock be ticking on the car park owners having it towed away?

6 months sounds like a long time...unless its a member of staff's?

I think that Auto sportivo sold it last year to someone in Scotland. It was on my “to look at” list.

It was one of Antz, he remembers selling it to a chap in Scotland who loved it.
He is texting him now to find out what is going on with it

Update:

A reccy yesterday proved fruitful - thanks to some help from the original lead who works in the offices opposite we found the sprinty (which does look tidy under the dust and whose bonnet has been, er, cleaned).

An hour later after chatting with a couple of uniformed gentlemen we had traced the owner (not his exact location) and learned that he was fine - just not in Edinburgh laugh

The reason the sprinty hasn't attracted security is that it's a "free" car park - not a public highway and too expensive/risky to tow away!

Anyway, a relief the owner is apparently well.

Nice bit of detective work Edinburgh- and as ever your commitment to protect Coupe's shines through!

Hopefully if the owner can't rescue his car there is an opportunity here for someone who can to have it.

Regards

MM

I have a feeling he'll be back - he appears to have 3 weeks' worth of Festival Fringe shows booked in August!

I heard today he's fine and his sprinty will be moved next week smile
