I don't know if he was the original owner but Philip Williams of Bairnsdale (100 miles the other side of Melbourne) sold the car to a Morwell car dealer (K.W. Motors) in March 1981 for $9000 with a slightly noisy third gear. In May of that year, Donald Till of Strathalbyn SA paid the dealer $10,000 for it. "Strath" is a fair way South of Adelaide and is actually where our Macclesfield stage in the Classic Adelaide finishes. It was Don who I bought the car from. It wasn't long before the front spoiler had to go. It and spoon drains just didn't see eye to eye.
When the other car came up I wasn't able to sell B8/43 straight away so we had two coupes for a while which put a bit of a strain on finances and relationships but we're a resilient bunch. Eventually John Arcus, in WA bought it. I have a feeling John lives in Indonesia now. Anyway, John had a big prang in it and that was that. Greg Wigger, who has another Nagari coupe bought the wreck. That was ages ago. I have heard that nothing further has happened but I have also heard that Greg intends to rebuild both Nagaris as a retirement project, one day when he retires obviously.
