  1. I've enquired about the one on eBay Cressa, I've asked the vendor to confirm the colour, as it looks sherry pearl in the photos.
  2. Thanks for the heads up Dox.
  3. To be honest it was always going to be a long shot if my old car was still out there, but at least I found out what happened to it and one of the previous owners sent me some photos of it, so at least I have them. I appreciate the advice Matt. It's just a case of seeing what comes up for sale, but I'm in for the long wait. I'll keep you posted and I'll keep an eye on here to see if any come up for sale. Thanks again.
  4. He didn't. I reluctantly joined Facebook earlier (against my principles, but needs must) and joined the Corrado forums. I put the message out about L33VWS and previously owning the car and he messaged me back saying that someone had been in touch, which was you and said to give him my number and he'll gladly speak to me about what happened to it. I can't thank you enough.
  5. He's just messaged me Wilko and asked for my mobile number, which I've sent him. He said he'll tell me what happened to it. I'll keep you posted.
  6. Got to be Blackberry (Bramble) and looked after. Mileage not too important as like all, they all have a bit of mileage on them now. I'd happily pay good money for a decent one that doesn't need much doing to it, just a bit of TLC. I'd prefer black interior, but beggars can't be choosers. If one comes up that is mechanically sound, but needs a respray then I'd be interested. I've been so close to buying a few recently, but the colour was wrong. I even put a deposit down on N164CWG about four years ago and agreed a price at nine grand. I had to pull out as I hadn't got the space at the time. it went for over seventeen grand (plus fees) at the Historics auction in 2021. I could have kicked myself. Thanks Cressa.
  7. Agreed Cressa. I'm on the look out!
  8. I lived in hope Wilko, but deep down I knew this would be the outcome. I can't thank you enough and thanks to Dox and Matt too. The good thing for me is finding out what happened to it as I didn't have a clue - the power of the internet. I thought it would have disappeared years before it did, so I'm pleased it had more use by the previous owners. If I could ask one thing Wilko? Could you ask Greg if he has anything left, like a door handle or something? Just so I can put it on my office wall? I've just told my wife the story of trying to find L33VWS again, we were courting in it, she shed a tear!
  9. I really appreciate it Wilko. I can't thank you enough.
  10. MJM Thompson are (or were) based in Keswick. I think the owner Mr. MJM Thompson died in 2016 and I can't find any trading figures, so I guess the company has now ceased trading.
  11. Hi Wilko, Thanks for sending over. Are you in contact with him or know someone who is? I've been in touch with the previous owner who sold it Greg and he sent me some photos and that's a big difference from how the car looks in 2012 compared to 2013. Looking at the online history, it passed it's last MOT in 2012 before it went on Sorn in 2013. My guess is he was in the middle of doing some work, or restoration - which seems unlikely as it's been 10 years on Sorn, or selling the parts off it, which seems more likely.
  12. Thanks for the advice Matt. And yes sentiment can play a big part, but if I do eventually come across it again and can do a deal to buy it, if it was that bad I would walk away. I joined Facebook today specifically to ask the CCGB and other Corrado forums if they know the current owner of the vehicle. If nothing turns up (which is looking likely) I'll keep my eyes out for a nice Blackberry VR6 that comes on the market in the future.
  13. That's very kind of you Dox as I'm not on Facebook. Cheers!
  14. I've emailed CCGB and awaiting their reply. Thanks for the heads up.
  15. Cheers for the info Dox. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
