Tracking down my old VL TURBO

Hi Guys and Girls ,

I used to be a member on here many years ago when you
still saw VL's driven around everyday.

I sold my VL Turbo in 2009 and miss that car so much.

Purchased in 2001 I spent countless hours ,blood sweat snd
tears doing it up over a 7 year period finishing with a tune by
the one and only Bresciani himself.

I sold the car not long after and the last I ever saw of
It was a listing on carpoint a year later with the poor car
sitting in a paddock in the Adelaide Hills somewhere being re-sold.

Wondering if anyone can help if they know if it has been
looked aftef or stripped (hopefully not)

Thanks in advance for any info.I have pics from start to finish with
everything done to the car as proof.

Here are some pics....

Thanks for the reply mate appreciate it.��

I know it's probably not the best thing coming on
a forum after I have been off it for about 9 years
and expecting to track down my old car.

Thanks to all that viewed the page.

I'll try the VIC page...

I don't think I've seen it either.
I have seen a couple advertised over the years that are similar (no rear windscreen sticker).
