Anybody with a proper GB can smile
Inc me ...
Not quite sure why ownership of a GB specifically makes you smug, but as long as it works for you......
The guy selling the one you refer to really hasn't a clue, quotes from his advert "one of 10 cars sent to Japan....all Japanese market were white.....very very few are in the UK......" etc.
You'd think a dealer tying to ask top money for one would at least have done his research and know that Japan market had around 400 models in Red, White and Blue.
He might get away with saying there are few in the UK in that kind of original condition as most GB cars have suffered significant corrosion compared to the Japan ones, but with the number that have been brought back there are probably more 50ths in the UK now than the rest of the world put together so certainly not the very very few he claims...
No matter how good it is though that looks like strong money
