Bainbridge 7 being sold as roller

Postby Gollum » Thu Apr 27, 2017 9:40 am

Some monkey is pulling apart a piece of NZ '7' history! This is one of the Bainbridge cars, possibly the only one still left, previously owned by forum member 'Binzy1'.

It would still be a very nice car (in some ways a better car!) but what a shame if it ends up with a 3SGE or similar.

I found out about a guy chopping up one of the de Joux GTs yesterday so I'm a bit sensitive about NZ motoring heritage today!

Talking of cutting stuff up, here's an E type:

I realise one less E type hasn't the same effect as one less De Joux, but yea, why??

Ye Gads! That looks like an E-Type after Gerry Anderson has had it modified for Lady Penelope.


They've given the de Joux a roof-chop for a laugh....

That is a great shame, having owned a 4AGE Fraser for a few years now, I have often thought how cool it would be to own that car.....
