    are you saying those pics are from the ownership period of "(1997-199? as the date stamps on the photos would say otherwise?

    Chased up the owners through the old receipts etc. that came with the car. The first 6 owners kept a very good history of repair work carried out on the car, also have another previous owner who is also hopefully sending some pictures.
