Once a ball starts rolling... I had heard rumours about a Cox GTM in Belgium for years but it was only months ago that I actually found it (this one). Then I heard there was supposedly another and found that, too only this week. It's not a Cox GTM but a Heerey GTM though, and joins the sole and still unregistered Euro GTM Coupe (this one) in the hands of Benjamin Massy.
Benjamin purchased the Heerey as a project car some 20 years ago but never came round to do it. It's complete but is unregistered and has no identification either. Oddly, the nose section on this car has been modified with only the front of it hinging forward. Benjamin showed me around in his workshop - a real Aladin's cave for A-series performance stuff. He is not too eager to sell anything, but may be tempted to do so if the offer is right. Drop me a line if you want to do so.
I had another arrangement before going home again, and when things got late I decided to ring up my friend Joost van Diën, who's based on the Dutch-Belgian border and who'd messaged me days earlier to tell that his Mk1 Mini Marcos had finally been road-registered in The Netherlands. We raised our glasses to that! The orange baby is going to be a real stunner and I hope to do a full report on the major troubles Joost went through to get it registered soon. Have a great weekend for now!
