My favorite colour is Coppertone Red as I love its contrast with the chrome trim. Ironically there's one in that colour in the members cars for sale pages. It needs work for its MOT but if I was looking for a 75 I would have been very interested in buying it, having the necessary repairs done and putting it back on the road.

Welcome to the world of 75/ZT ownership, probably the most expensive fiver you will ever spend lol

Loads of great advice and help available here but most importantly drive it and enjoy it

Yes Simondi, lots of useful advice; one snippet I picked up was to keep the fuel tank at least 25% full in order to protect the pump.

Commiserations on being stuck with this lot for the the rest of your life as now you have a 75 there is no escape, it gets into your blood and stays there. Beautiful car btw, well done
