yeah me too, my dad was a northern dj and he too was a scooter boy in his youth, lambretta's and vespa's!!

He used to go to the Wigan Casino and the Hasienda and the Torch.......... He collected the 45rpm records for bloody years, when he died there was in excess of £17K worth amazing what some of them were worth, one of them was valued at £900

Where do you go to them, local ones or to "nighters"?

The largest collection of lambrettas in the world is in weston super mare, he has a museum and shop here and i know him quite well so if you want to come down for a look and maybe pick your stuff up from Cyco at the same time let me know

He must do quite well from it cus he owns a 355 Ferrari but unfortunatly he did this 2 weeks ago:o

Looks MR2 like but it is LHD. Seats don't look very ferrari either. The MR2 based replicas go for about 15k so he's not as loaded as he wants everyone to think!

Why on earth would you build a MR2 based replica, using a LHD Toyota?

I reckon It's real

Just looked at a few pics on google, rear quarter window and some other details on the MR2 kits are different to original, I still reckon this is real.

Also, rear wings are metal, surely thay'd be glass if it were a fake.

This is a bit of the side skirt of a red 355 I saw in a hedge many years ago. After they took it away myself and several others took some of the bits that were left as soveniers. That was when the 355 was new and was a bit tasty!!!

Yeh, it does look real (dimensions on the kit look a bit screwy) & Jonny's right; why would you build a replica on a LHD MR2?

It was the 'glass bumper that threw me, but I stand corrected.
