Just passed on the info to the chap who sold it to the owner - he's very surprised as the owner loved that coop...
Ricky forgive my memory, was it you who had the sprinty with the black roof?
No, that wasn’t me...I had a pretty standard red one, the only thing I did to it was to replace the black fabric seats with red leather seats from a similar one (would have been mainly spotted down Easter Road/Leith way). Was not in the best nick when I eventually parted company with it...the guy I did sell it to hoped to return it to its former glory...but not sure if he managed to.
I live on a sleepy street, and low and behold a lovely lady approached me concerning my Coupe she clocked in my garage while working on the daily hack. What transpires is that there is another Red Coupe on my street, barely a few houses away tucked up in a nice garage built for the Coupe. What lies within is a beautiful 2.0 16v NA with immaculate red original paint with low miles. The owner is not a member, but will be hopefully soon. What are the chances of two coupes living in the same street these days..?

Chances are almost nil you would think - you could hold your own mini-meets without turning a wheel!
It would be great to see some pics...
Did not take any pics, thought it would be too upfront. The owner uses the same specialist as I do in Greenock. He has had it for over 10 years. Recall it being a N plate. Interior was black leather. It’s being recommissioned at present, though not much to do from what I can see.
