Notes: It has some 80's multi-spoke alloys on it, made by MSW. Probably date from around 1988. It should have the Cookie Cutter alloys on it.

Was given a personalised plate, JRH 789, in October 1984 until November 1985 when it was given it's present registration A51 OVR, when it was residing in Stockport.
Fate: A51 OVR was first registered as A571 GLR and first sold in Isleworth, London, in October 1983.

I have recently acquired this car, my first ever sports car.

It's had a hard life, I am the 24th owner!!!!!!

It has had two or three different alarm systems on it in it's life, it has none now.

I wrote off to the DVLA enquiring about the previous 23 owners and I was able to trace it's history right back to the 80's. It had spent most of it's time up in the North of England (Yorkshire, Lancashire, Nottinghamshire) and had a few owners in East Anglia before I bought it.

I am hoping that someone will see this car on here and be able to tell me something about it! I'm sure it's got a few tales to tell!

OVR is currently undergoing minor restoration - the small matter of a rusty sill and wheelarch!
