Hi thanks, in the process of getting a rapier soon, standard rapier is what I wanted not holbay or alpine, just the standard version as I've been waiting for 30 yrs to fulfil that wish, now have the time etc to do a restoration. still can't believe that my dads jag mk2 weighs 1000kg more than a rapier? we need a more active forum don't you think?

What kind of Rapier are you looking for, a Series Rapier or a Fastback one?

Regards,

Peter

Hi, hopefully got a fastback coming this week so will see if it turns up, and what needs doing, my father prefers the series type as that what he rallied in the 60's. Tony

Yes, welcome to the forum Tony. It isn't that active, but we're a small band of enthusiasts
I am not on Facebook, but there is a club presence there that is more active. I am not a Facebook person, so check on here reasonably regularly.
Of course it will be great to have you as an actual club member as well
Do provide some pics and details of your Fastback when you get one. I see a few up for sale, but they are still pretty rare!
All the best. G.

Hi, will be joining soon, as I posted in the cars for sale section, my rapier did arrive, but had looked at a few repainted cars and was shocked at the lack of care when somebody fitted the doors and wings, just about every rapier had mis-aligned body panels, sorry no thanks! not at £3-5Gs, so went for the most original for the lowest price. tony

Welcome Tony. I'm with Glen and won't/don't subscribe to Facebook, but found a few members on here giving useful and helpful information. Much has helped me with my experiences with series Rapiers.
