Yesterday was a fun day; these two Ace's were in the same place at the same time, for the first time, and then we drove in convoy, which caused some double-takes and turned some heads:

   The weather was chilly but dry, showers holding off until just before getting home.

Which Motor Show was that? I have the Detroit 94 Motor Show car, but doubt that's the one you're referring to. It's LHD and rarely used, so make me an offer jbottini haha

   No,
   
   The 99 Birmingham Motor Show. The LHD Ace was repainted "Diamond Blue" as a possible tie in with DeBeers Diamonds......a marketing ploy that didn't happen. The car was to be sent to the US for us to use a demo and dealer recruitment tool.
