Starman, that's a particularly attractive looking car, with an unusual colour scheme. Unless I am mistaken, it is identical in colour to a 6.9 owned by CraigS., a car that Michel actively pursued at the time but got outbid by Craig. It's good to see you stay in touch, and if there is any aspect you're not certain of, just let me know. I know you also have a Gold 6.9 that I had an involvement with many years ago. Good luck with whatever you're doing. Regards Styria
