It's Glyn Jones' former Samuri tribute car again. Not a mention anywhere in the ad about that, just its dubious presence on the Samuri register. More of that horrible Goertz regurgitated marketing twaddle though. It's f##king tiring seeing that crap trotted out by these bloody car dealers over and over again. Just like the brain-dead journos at the major classic mags.
You can tell I'm tired. Tolerance for bulls##t = 0.
Coming down in price,
Its quite handy that they've managed to get all the things we hate and wrong all in one place. Also saying it needs bodywork........
So has it been authenticated by Spike or not?
For £25 I can get you authenticated and added to the list!
GDS must be a bit tired by now.
Number 41 of the 90 Super Samuri builds
So where are the other 13x ?
"..........could easily be used as a competitive historic track car which you could drive to the circuit , race, then drive back home in it...." just like every Sam - sounds like a quote straight out of the book.
This. Although not really where the car itself is concerned. For the uninitiated again - Glyn Jones restored and used to own CAB139N, the ex-Kevin Irons Sam that Spike refuses to recognise as such. After he sold it, he missed it so much he decided to build himself a car that was stylistically a tribute to the Samuris, and thus the car being discussed was born. Glyn never claimed it was anything other than a tribute. Why the #### it is on the register is indeed a big question without a satisfactory answer...
Spike wouldn't have volunteered to 'authorise' it....one owner must have !
And for anyone wishing to own CAB139N just ask me
You offering a 'club-members' price Rob ?
I'll need to renew my membership then.....
Thats not correct.
It's a ludicrous story and, like much of the register, made up and not always what it pretends to be.
So, in your view, how did it end up on the register ?
