I’ve just a bought a new Rangie, so my ever-ready previous one is available. It’s a 2005 4.2lt V8 Vogue Supercharge - the top of the range Rangie of its day. Maximum spec, so upgraded seats, leather, hi-fi, etc. Easily the best and most reliable RR on its time, with none of the issues associated...
Ah..but this was bought from Dodi Fayed’s barn. Last person to sit in it? Princess Di.
Anyway, all being well it’ll eventually look very pretty in my own barn. Then, eventually, someone else can unearth it and start the cycle all over again.
And I quote...”it will be cheaper to buy a brand new V12 Ferrari than restore this one.”
But where’s the fun in that?
So, we’re now three years in and about to embark on the re-paint. I’ll post some pictures over the coming weeks. By Christmas, it’ll be looking more than fabulous. Hopefully.
Imagine the list I got on a 40 year old Ferrari that hadn’t seen the light of day, let alone a service, for the last 30 of those. I should have bought shares in Viking Office Supplies before printing it!
