    Any pics of the interior? Did it come from the US like that or did you do the engine install?
    Seems a shame to sell it. What does it drive like?

    It is indeed. But that is my lowest offer to Z club members.
    IF... it goes on ebay it'll be more £ because of ebay numpties and time wasters.

    Damn that looks good. If I hadn't just put a deposit down on mine I'd be very interested.
    Do you mind me asking what wheels (make/model/size/offset) and tyres sizes you have fitted?

    It's very nice, although that gear stick gaiter must take £10 grand off?

    Thanks, if it's not too much trouble next time you're with the car would you mind checking the wheels for an ET number stamp please?

    Thanks for reply looking at a couple at moment. Didn't rely consider the ls conversion must be very rare in UK. Do you know the weight difference over the straight 6.
