    Willid, I saw your car at the show today looks very nice, my missus spotted you had a Vospers sticker in the back window, so it's a Plymouth car then.

    You've got her well trained .

    Yes it was registered in Plymouth and it's first owner was the managing director of Vospers Motors (apparently all the Vopsers family cars had 77 in their number plates for some reason).

    I got Vospers to send me the sticker but they had no further info about the car other than that both the MD and the sales director remembered it.

    Well I grew up in Plymouth, I do remember seeing a Twincam once in Plymouth it was in a carpark, all I remember about it is that it was white with a rollcage in it, just seemed different to all the mexicos around in them days.

    Within about 6 months it had been modified to rally spec, seats, wheels etc, and also a black bonnet which it seems you had to have back then.

    Looks like it had a rear cage at this stage


    This work was carried out by Vopsers for a guy called Robin Ould who I think was a yacht broker.



    This is one of the earliest pictures I have of the car. Wouldn't it be mad if you'd seen my car all those years ago.

    Nice!! are you bringing the Mex to RSOC National Day Vinny? agree with the wheels comment - it looks well with the steels & chrome caps, didn't think I liked Tawny before but looking at those pics it does look great in that colour, especially with the black stripes.
