Out of interest, where have you seen it for sale?

When I was looking for mine, I actually went out to a dealer near to Cambrai in France to look at it. Great car but the dealer had failed to mention that it had a Spyder chassis which was not for me! I ended up with an early plus 2.

Soon after it appeared at a well documented dealer in Kent advertised at a massive premium!

Interestingly, at that time there were about 3 or 4 reasonably good JPS cars on the market. Hardly ever seen one come up since.

That looks ripe for re-repatriation!

I guess only Serge would know if it his old car. I wonder if he ever looks in here.

Interestingly, I worked quite hard to try to find out who had previously owned and restored it before the dealer got hold of it and couldn't find him anywhere. Funny it should crop up now.
