I've was clearing out some old LR mags last week and noticed GB001's plaque on the front cover of one of them. I quickly flicked through the pages and found a two page article inside on GB001!

For those who have not seen it, here's a copy:

Cool, has the personal plate been on GB 001 since new then ?

Flashing through my mind :

a 50th as original 1998

as restored by Simon 2012

could you tell the difference ..?

Hi Peter,

I don't know if the plate's been on from new. The article was written a couple of months after registration so probably on from new. I'm sure James will know Wink

It's nice to see it's still going. Doesn't look too bad apart from the powder coat on the front bumper.
