Thomas, you are doing the right thing: by saving the white one and selling the others to fund the rescue of the white one. This way all Ciphers will be rescued. Now we have (almost) two more drivable Ciphers. Who could imagine that a year ago!

Nope, just the red one and the white one. The green one is staying at home

I think the red Cipher is going to a really good home. It will take some major TLC to get it back on the road but I think it will be done! :-) So I'm happy about that... Can you believe the Red Cipher was about to be crushed at a scrapyard 15 years ago. I think it was Erik who found it and I bought it as I needed a windscreen for my Green Cipher... When the car was in my barn a roof tile fell down during a storm. 1000 of things it could have landed on but it landed on... Thought I would keep it for parts but that is a waste. It isn't that bad, think body is way better then both the white and green Ciphers before rebuild started on those. Mechanicaly the red Cipher is a mess...

Will be good to see it saved, I'd love to take it on, but better someone with the immediate funds and time (or at least storage!) has it I think.

There is a possibility another Cipher will be at Curbs also, and I shall be bringing Peter Birds paperwork up, and I don't see why it can't be displayed with David Poole's stuff for the weekend before it goes back with Simon, the Cipher registrar.
