My old fb
« on: December 18, 2017, 09:56:38 PM »
I sold it some years ago as a bare shell
Can't remember who to but I saw a picture of it later back on wheels in a garage next to a fd (black I think)
Reg mark was B900FGM
Where is it now.
Cheers in advance.

Nothing at the moment.
Tbh if I could get my old red fb back I would be happy.
It would need a lot spent on it but it's more of a sentimental thing really. But I also won't pay over the odds for it.
Currently have still got a civic which is pretty quick in the 1600 class but it's for sale.
If I can't get a fb it will be rx8 for rallying

"Codge" occasionally pops in here and has a register of all known FB's in the UK. I've dropped him an email to see if he can help with locating your old car  :)

Cheers. :sign0098:
I think the DVLA show it as untaxed. That could mean anything

Run an mot history check onit...shows how long since an mot was on the car...would give some indication as current status.

Did a DVLA check on it and it showed as being untaxed and no mot
When I sold it, it was a bare shell. Not even any suspension in it and we had to lift it onto the trailer
As I said last time I saw it was back as a rolling chassis and was being built up as a street racer or something like that. So it may never have made it that far or it went circuit meaning no mot required
Be  a shame if it's gone. Had a blast in that car

Codge has responded to say he was advised that the car was scrapped in 2011, after being used on and off for racing.

Bugger, bad new...  :(
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
