New member looking for old car

Postby Santaclaus » Sun Aug 11, 2013 11:02 pm

Hi, I have recently been thinking of getting another mx5, it has been 10 years since my last one.
So anyway I have now joined this forum and hopefully the right car will come along.
Ideally though what I would really like is to find my old car, it was a brg mk1 with tan seats and soft top. It had a pukka roll cage and full stainless exhaust with at least a 3" pipe. I think the reg was L786LNA or close, and it was an eunos vspec. I sold it to a couple in the car park of morrisons in Kilmarnock.

Cheers, Paul

L786LNA does not exist according to the DVLA.
Perhaps the MOT station you used still has a record of the reg number.
As it happens, I'm an L/ LNA too.
But not for sale!

Could that mean it has been scrapped? I might be wrong about the 786 part but defo L...LNA. Looks a lot like yours with the chrome wheels and mirrors, very nice!!

Sounds like the wrong number.

Bump for any more info about any L***LNA cars, BRG with a proper roll cage. Still can't find any pics so I am just holding out for an amazing piece of luck. I know I will know it when I see it.

Cheers

Sorry to bump this again but I am still on the lookout for my car. Wish I could provide better details and a picture but it was a long time ago.

Hi, still looking for this car if anyone has any info?
I would also consider buying one similar if anyone is selling or knows of one.
Just drop me a line.

The car with that number is not on the insurance database nor do the DVLA have any information on it re MOT or Tax.

My BRG (LNA 483L) might have bits on it from scrap. :(
