Spotted on Brighton seafront - following on from the L to B run on Sunday.
Black 50th - GB355 - very nice looking car. Hovered for a while but didn't catch the owner.

Thats Sam and David,

Met them a few times at various shows, they got it a couple of years ago.

One of the other black 50th i hear is in Yorkshire looking very sad condition.

Didn't know they produced anything other than Atlantis Blue! What else - apart from black then?

Hi,

There are only 3 black ones. The story is some computer busniess man bought 3 50th and sprayed them black. They are a matt black, they just spayed over everythings, chequer plate, side steps.... the lot.

Hello James. Thanks. Yes, just looked at one of your pics and saw everything painted! Still mean to take you up on that offer of seeing yours! I was in Newbury again today (by the stupidly-marked roundabout) and will be again on Thursday pm - again, by that roundabout! Will you be at work?

There is a story behind the 'computer man' and the three black 50th's that was told to me at Gaydon this year by a man who was in the know.
All very odd and ended with a wrecked car and no body. The 50th's were sold off after the estate was wound up. The 50th's being used on the estate as security vehicles.
