No. Unfortunately not.
I had bought a 1.8 16v new in 93 and when I decided to get a Williams, I couldn’t get hold of a new Mk1 so bought a 2. My girlfriend at the time also had a Williams 2 and then her dad bought her a Williams 3. She was only about 21 at the time!

16v was a lovely car too. My dad had a metallic burgundy one on a 94 M plate. Never got to drive it sadly as I was 17 at the time. First hot hatch was a new Saxo VTS which before they became a bit shall we say chav were great little machines. I had one of the first in the country and bought it from AFG Wimbledon when I worked in the City. Was perfect living and parking in London but great when grazing back to see folks in the Midlands at the weekend!

Great car.. I tried to track mine down about 10 years ago but gave up..
My partner’s Up Gti is probably the best car I've bought since for putting a smile on your face.
I was tempted by a 205 Mi16 I saw come up just before this Corona mess cropped up...

Mira really nice and my new boxster gts4.0 is specced in the colour
It’s nice in the flesh. Below are a few picture from the demonstrators I had whilst they were fixing my other car

At least it’s not Agate Grey! Not that I dislike grey but just about every Boxster I see is grey.
Think you'd change your mind on the Agate Grey on the 992. I felt like you and agree on the Boxster there's a lot of greys and I agonized before I placed my order. Agate on the 992 C4S really shows the lines. I'm certainly very happy with it...

Wasn't that in your garage without an engine last time we looked? Or have I got my threads mixed up?
Owned 3 over a period of time, but finally opted for Ford power (but not in a Ford car)
Correct. Just waiting for new master cylinders to arrive and then going to strip the diff to stop it clonking. Then a new clutch release bearing in the Midget. Never ending with old cars but with the present situation I'm getting things done. One day I might get round to doing the Innocenti.
