I had an Austin Healey Sprite( wish I still had it) which Bob was selling on my behalf, and I remember seeing this car in his garage workshop. He also had a Jaguar with an aluminum body, and a McClaren (I think it was?) racing car.

Didn't know Bob Vincent owned a GT40, though I am aware of him owning the aluminium Jaguar, which wouldve been the E-Type lightweight. The man mustn't have been short of a few bob, I wonder how local garage owners can afford the likes of a GT40 and lightweight E-Type these days with the prices they fetch? there won't be many I bet.

I wonder where that car is now?. I've heard Noel Edmonds owns a GT40.

Bob Vincent was the only person to buy my Jaguar car from me. I part exchanged it for a Vauxhall Victor. He showed me round that GT40 and looking at the engine, All the nuts were drilled through and wired. Trevor Jones bought an EType from Bob and it had a personal reg of RV7. Bob wanted the reg back of course!
