A few from just before i added the white EMPI style stripes over the roof.
Parked at the inlaws next to the Nissan Bluebird they gave me. Not sure if it was a punishment.

A few piccies of my old 1303S. Looks like it was a nice red colour originally.
The look on my dads face says how impressed he was with my 100 purchase.

I think my old 1303S was in better condition than my current bug is. Atleast it wasn't bodged and covered in patches.

Quite a difference a change of colour makes.
