Many thanks Ann and please pass my thanks to Neil.

Can you see if he has pictures of the RX-3's engine bay as I am sure Japi along with others would like to see them. :sign0098:
All the best Clive

Yes, I always like Neil´s photos too. And once again,  :sign0098:

And YES, I would like to see more pics from that stunning RX-3, and its engine bay. 12A turbo? Damn...  :love4:

Do you have more photos from that grey RX3 nosed FD and that badass blueish FD?

Sorry for the delay but here they are: https://goo.gl/photos/BPZRzBSgjxQisLw48
