Interesting history there! It's strange though that the red ZT, with NAC stickers on the bonnet and the larger door mirrors, should be on a T registration..?

Judging by the awfull state of OVP, the other cars dumped in their yard will probably be mouldy inside, elecs prob all badly corroded, ECU's flooded, tyres flat and unusable etc etc, I am surprised they don't simply sell them off to anyone who wants one and is willing and able to trailor them away at scrap value. ..

As the cars are being totally neglected and clearly neither being used or wanted. I really don't understand the reason for the owners reluctance to part with them.

One would have thought they would be glad to get rid.. --..

T907 ABD was originally 2.0 V6 R75 Connie in wedgewood blue IIRC. It was converted to be one of the development MG ZT 190's in April/May 2001 (when I first started at MGR). The car had a 190 engine and gearbox, fibreglass MG front bumper, 18" wheels and the original big rear spoiler. It was our emissions car for the ZT and lurking somewhere I will have some pictures of it on my drive!!

Once we'd finished with it, it became one of the fire vehicles on site.
