It was fun while it lasted, truly gorgeous styling, more than enough of a handful for me. A number of embarrassing slow speed stacks and a major crash in the wet that left me with a permanently injured shoulder. Up and down the Hume highway to visit Melbourne, then one night in 1998 stolen from outside a friend’s house. Years later I still wonder what became of it.
