    I picked this photo off the web a few days ago, looks like February 8th this year at Torremolinos

    So far I'm unable to identify which car it is, despite the distinctive grille badge

    There appears to be a recent MOC sticker on the windshield, so which members car is it ?

    Thanks in anticipation of ANY answer !

    I have seen that car before about 5 years ago i think.

    Spanish number plates of that style are not age related, but are simply sequential.
    i have some approximate dates I will look up later.
    MOC member since 05/97
    1984 Marlin Roadster SWB.
    1800TC, Unleaded ported head, stage 2 cam. Ford Type 9 gearbox, Dolomite Sprint rear axle fitted with MGF disc brakes.
    Three core radiator, Renault Clio vented front discs.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    I do like a Roadster with wires, for me it finishes the look.

    I agree with you entirely but its got to be the real thing, in my opinion, as these appear to be. Started to look for them once when I had a Roadster but didn't persevere.

    Well that goes pretty close to the top of list of the most stupid things I've seen on cars. For its ability as a bumper they may as well have just fixed a real set of cow horns to the bonnet; it will probably give just as much protection.

    I know who owns the car. It is a long time club member and friend Derek Kennington ex Hopas near Tamworth. He had a Blue and silver Berly and a classic caravan in the early years. In fact he came to Stoneleigh last year and camped. (not with the roadster) Many of you will remember him.

    OK Wiggy, you want cow horns ?

    I'm currently in touch with Dave Hitchings and he is sorting out some old MOC stuff for me

    These screen grabs are from the video he has of the MOC stand at the Town & Country show
    at Stoneleigh in August 1996. The show's theme was TV Soaps, and the MOC picked Dallas !

    In time I hope to be able to upload plenty of his MOC history onto the website
