Just like Nigel I had a Fizzy then an x7. Can't remember the No. plates though.
X7 went like stink and stuck to the road like chewing gum.
Restoring a 400/4 at the moment.Always wanted one since I saw one being driven into the living room at a party!!

Hi Fogdevil. I once owned an X7 but it was a pile of rust. It was to be my project and I was going to restore it. I soon realised I lacked both the skills and the money to do anything with it and it ended up in a skip. Shame really.

I envy those of you who have the patience to slowly, carefully and skilfully work through the restoration process. If it takes more than a day I tend to lose interest!
