I never thought this day would happen. I was gutted the first time round when Steve had to sell it back in early 2012. If only it had come up for sale at the end of the year I would have snapped it up after getting made redundant from work. It eventually went to a fellow TC member in the USA until this year when it was appearing on the TC trades for sale and eBay. I was mulling over it for days and speaking to Steve on the best way to get it back. Luckily fate would have it and I won the item on eBay although the £175 Import bill was a punch in the stomach, but at least its back in the UK. Can you believe I never saw it in the flesh but the shell paint work and detailing is something else. Only gripe was salt had got in the wheel covers and bolts but remembered I had another set of Steve's stunning 315/915 painted wheels to put on.

Chuffed is a understatement we got it back

There she is on home soil (and as normal for Barry, nearly falling in the pond). I hope you have a dust free cabinet for it

It was listed for $2000 Buy it Now. I made a offer of $1000 which was accepted by accident but the seller honoured it

Good to see it again. Glad to see it still looks as good as when it was finished. I prefer the new wheels to the ones that were originally on it (not that my opinion counts for very much!)

Didn't even know it went west! Good to see it's been looked after, an iconic scorcher which is a credit to Steves handiwork.

Thanks for the comments. It has most of the TC legends parts fitted and everytime I look at it there is something new that I missed. I'm certainly up for a good rag around Snetterton John lol
