    I have heard more negative than positive feedback regarding Ross Campbell over the years. Lack of response to phone calls or emails, issues with people getting ripped off etc. However some people have had a good deal from him. I know him but have never dealt with him personally. Suggest you tread carefully when dealing with him.
    And don’t tell me you have sold your MX5 Roger?

    Off subject. A friend of mine has just landed one of the rare MK2 coupes. They only ever made 147 and they are as rare as hens teeth! (And increasing in value at a great rate!)

    Would love see the car

    Growler Re ; And donít tell me you have sold your MX5 Roger. NO...
    Car is in Auckland and I now live in the Bay of Plenty, but have a family garage I leave it in here in the big smoke where I am at the moment, so off for a warrant, in fact had a short drive today with a WoF that expired a week or so ago.

    I found another photo of it today, looking a bit tired !!

    I had dealings with him, and while it wasn't glowingly positive, it wasn't negative either. He's a hard dealer, (that was my experience) but his advice was gold. Like all specialists, they do have you in a bit of a tight place as they hold most of the cards. Definitely communications were an issue. to be fair, it was when he was moving from Hamilton to the Bay of Empty.

    Rhys re ; " or is Taupo in the BOP? " : depends on your knowledge of Geography .. only about 2 hours from here so Yes !!
    Agree sad about Baypark as Californians are about Riverside, and we think Speedway at Western Springs Auckland is going too !! B*gg#r .. as they say at Toy*t# ..

    The Speedway at Western Springs has made it to the mainstream media here in the UK with almost all comment being along the lines of "How stupid is that, been there for years, what has happened to Heritage issues in NZ?". May as well tear down the Auckland Museum for housing development.

    Rhys, totally agree, over 20 or so years ago they " The Council " were going to bow to pressure from the new NIMBY's who had just moved into the area, to close Western Springs instead there were noise and number of events and time curfew imposed.
    As you well know at Western Springs you have cars and bikes racing and Lions Roaring - close down the Zoo, and what about the Duck Quacks - bad state of affairs - not forgetting those Rattly Old Trams at Motat, in the day I know.
    Hope they those NIMBY's enjoy the concerts !! ROCK ON ..

    There is a closed Facebook group called NZ MX5's. There are about 4,000 members and you can buy a lot of second hand parts through there.

    MX5's at Caffeine and Classics

    There will be at least two of them - my note on Austin Healey's thread !

    Kevin will have a silver one and as he said " bugger the weather "

    Agree Kevin and the good news the BRG MX5 and Rays BRG MGF will be too !! and yes Bugger the weather I got the warrant, so no sneaking down the road, just got the car back this afternoon.
    Will be good to meet, and the same with Ray, have tried several times to catch ERC, at C and C 3 times , and Chelsea Hillclimb, usually I was leaving just as he was arriving. Cheers Guys..

    MX5 - Fiat 124 and Abarth 124

    Same floor-pan suspension and structure - different engine and body style - has style.
    Saw an Abarth one the other day, this is a photo from Mark Pascoe in the UK of one at a Car Show at Watford recently.
    I like it would swap my scruffy 1991 limited edition [ V - Special in Mazdaspeak ] for one .. probably dreaming !!
    Found, as in hidden not lost, the Genuine Floor-mats for my car the other - hadn't been seen for many years, now to find the Tonneau Cover and the Wind-blocker - been in a Vinyl Bag that a Mate made me 18 or so years ago they must be somewhere !!
