    love it, price is not steep for what you get - a handbuilt almost unique ( were there as many as three?) sportscar with a superb finish. What else could you get for that money (apart from another Marlin Lol - Marlins are just too cheap!).

    I have the full set of body panels available (proffesionally painted) if anyone wants to change their roadster.

    I think its the cowling style that puts me off this, obviously trying to emulate an old Giulietta nose but somehow not quite getting it right. Looks nicely detailed though.

    I generally don't like the restyling YKC did but this is rather nice, I'd remove the stickers, why do people love to sticker up their cars in excess for no reason, Cinzano stickers?

    I'd pay 8k for it tops.
