Just sold mine earlier this year, prices definitely on the up for good ones. It was my third and probably last Tomcat

Did you advertise on here? If you did I must have missed that! I think I'm going to be looking for a needle in a haystack. I have my heart set on a FDH, after reading about them. Never owned a convertible and I've always liked Targa tops!

I guess I might be in for a long wait. Might have to sell a car to pay for it as well as I have no idea how much I should be looking at for a nice FDH.

No, the guy I bought the car off 6 years previously wanted the car back and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Mine wasn’t a turbo and it made little difference to the selling price, a good coupe is worth decent money regardless of what engine it has. I almost bought an FDH before I got mine but it wasn’t in too good a condition, certainly not as advertised.

I've recently bought a mint vvc coupe, really pleased with it . Shame it's not a turbo but hey ho . Doing a few little mods to get it to around 160bhp unfortunately not the 200 of the turbo but it still goes well

The best and most reliable of the lot. I loved my old VVC.
My turbo, however has been very problematic over the years. Yet, I still have it fourteen years on.
