You went for a tank from another car in Tamworth Ian and saw this one.
Last seen it was up near me, for sale in Snaith, (Goole Area).
I thought it was that car Dave but couldn't find an old post or pic with the reg on it.... it's Stu's old car from Tamworth that had heavy corrosion in the roof...... strangely enough I was talking about this car today at a car show with Dean from DFTR Automotive and about the rot in it's roof panel then a few hours later it pops up for sale.
Here's the post about it last time it was for sale...

No, didn't know it was up for sale again.
It was in Tamworth (Ian you saw it there), then it went to York at the end of 2010

Good spot that man..... W(p
Yes, this car was restored by a guy named Stu in Tamworth around 2010... Cliff and myself got to know him quite well. He liked his classic cars and did a good job of detailing them ( his Ferrari 328 was stunning) but Stu told me that he was disappointed with how this RX7 turned out. He had it fully resprayed and the paint finish was flawless.... unfortunately the prep in respect of rust treatment wasn't as good and a few months after the car was sprayed, some huge blisters came up under the paint on the roof by the rear sunroof drains.... it was a shame because it otherwise looked excellent. It was another case however of a shiny new paint job hiding deeper problems and a good as the car looked, who knows where the next rust bubble would pop up next.
This was all back in 2010 however so maybe a subsequent keeper has had the issues dealt with.

Warehouse clear out, this has been stored inside a dry heated garage since 2010. The time has come to sell it. Needs a bit of TLC but with limited work could be on the road again. Open to sensible offers. £3500 Ono

Notice the wheels?
It's an S2 car for sure but the rear axle is S3.... rdg

Never seen it before Dibs.
Looks like a good / interesting resto project but I would say it needs a coat of look-see before forking out that sort of cash.

Cheers mate

Who ever buys it needs to chk why it has series 3 rear axle or they will always have odd wheels.
