Yes it was. Probably been in Auckland now for about 13 years or so.

I remember seeing it around town the first few days after he bought it.  Should remember who the owner was but the memory is greying out ;)

May have been a local solicitor?

I do however remember thinking how tame it sounded compared to my 1985 urq, but no surprise in that

Having been driving the WR now for a week I feel it has a bit more character than the RR and sounds much better!

Listed on TM with a $135,000 asking price on it!

I see it's gone from Trademe. Anyone know if it sold?
