Nick44 Why did they ever stop making Saffron? Superb looking motor. Feb 15th, 2008
PeakUnder Lovely looking motor. Picky I know, pity about rubbish on road in bridge picture, and that reflection(?) on n/s rear panel. However, I repeat, there are few golds on cars that I like, but this is brill. Would be nice to see more pics in the future. Regards, J. May 11th, 2007
STE-MAL Thank you kevdj.
I'm not surprised they have never been used. That would be because they're crap!
Thank you anyway!
