Does anyone know the whereabouts of this car? A previous owner would like to know, contact me if you can help.

Yes, but what are the chances eh?  I can hardly wait to see what Chris Heraldhabitat has to say about it and whether his local enquirer still wants to know about his old car seven years after asking the question.

This sort of stuff is is where the internet and social media comes into its own (rather than finding out whether Kim Kardashian has had her bum implants re-stuffed this month) because how else could you possibly find out something so obscure?  

Has anyone PM'd Chris?  Shall I?

I did, about a minute after posting the reply above.  No reply yet from Chris though.

I'm not sure Chris uses this forum so much any more - reasonably active on facebook though, so I'll send him a message on that.

I've just heard back from Chris on facebook, and if I understood his message correctly, it was actually him looking for the car, as one way or another he had the cars original handbook and purchase receipt. In the in between years he's found the car / owner at Stoneleigh and gave them the paperwork.

Hi Guys, I'm back, I have no idea why this request was made, it's too far back, I answer all Club Triumph emails and with all the spam that comes in I get between 70 and 100 emails a day. This means major deletes, this isn't the car that was at Stoneleigh though.
Sorry I can't be more helpful
Best Regards
Chris
