KR has it right. I got the car running earlier this year, around March/April I think. I then had a very stubborn issue with a spongy brake pedal that drove me up the wall, but it got fixed eventually. It ran well enough, I had high hopes for good lap times.

.....and then I sold it. Part of a larger wheel and deal between me and my main trading partner. If all goes to plan, he should debut the car at the Ford&Friends racing on 7 October this year. It no longer has my old engine in, but rather a "new" one I put together from our collective leftovers. It actually runs very well, especially considering what went into it. He is not running it with Fines though, but rather Classics Pre-90, so it can now also get more modifications if he wants to.
Okay, thanks for the update, would be nice to see her in action again.
