Hi All
Finally decided to let my 90 go, no time to give it the attention it deserves.
Many of you on here know my 90 and have seen it at events and shows, it may not be to everybody's taste with masses of modifications and upgrades, but it still has the subtle appearance of a 50th anniversary - a proper wolf in sheep's clothing
I have ownedGB209 since 2005 and it still makes me smile, it is a thrill to drive, a fantastic beast, it needs to be driven not sit under covers in the shed.
It was modifies in 2002 by the previous owner and had a 6-page feature article in LRO Nov 2002 called BLOWN AWAY
It had a replacement 4.6 engine fitted by RPI in 2008 which has only done 11k. this replaced the original upgraded engine which had become porous. It has an Eaton 190 supercharger on a modifies inlet manifold and aquamist water injection, headman 4 branch manifolds, a bespoke s/s exhaust with fast flow cats. It has been chipped by Mark Adams and develops 300bhp and will do 0-60 in 6 seconds. It has slotted and drilled discs, lowered suspension, loads of other interesting bits as follows
powder coated rocker covers, magnacor leads, webasto pre-heater, 255x60 Pirelli Scorpions on 17" Predictors, ARB rear diff locker, chrome A bar with spots, sump guard, NAS lenses with clear indicators, rear working lights, momo steering wheel, Croytec s/s gauge surrounds, screen vents, heater controls, schillmen leather seats, central locking, aircon, electric windows, CD multi changer, forward facing seats.
Its not in perfect condition it does have some signs of wear and tear with 130k on the clock but for it's 20 years it has faired well
I will be looking for offers around 30,000

All the best Steve

Wow, just WOW.
If I could I most certainly would.

Sensible price too (imho) compared with some of the silly dealer prices for standard 50ths

Hi guys

I know I will regret letting it go but life has moved on, it needs to be looked after and I just don't have the time anymore its only done 500 miles in three years and I struggle to keep it safe with all the work I've got on where we are now.
I still have my old 110 v8 partly restored my 130 which I use every day for work and my vogue 50 which I guess still give me a link with you all.
Hope I will keep in touch.

Steve

That's sad Steve

He's a one off, spent many a sunny afternoon in Brighton with you and yours

For those in the know - it will be snapped up, let's hope to an equally caring owner

Steve

Good memories of 50th outings with your motor at Brighton, Billing and the even the 'fogged off so it never happened' Santa Pod.

It's a cracking vehicle - I hope she goes to a good deserving home.

Hi Greg we did have some good outing over the years, Santa pod was a bit of a disappointment the first time.
We did get back I think the year after, amazing thrill to thrash down the strip. Just under 14 seconds. Got some pic somewhere I'll put them up if I can find them.
I do remember a very wet L2b as well.
