Car of the Month April 2012

  Submitted by Greg Narey

I have owned this little exxy since 1983 (car is 1980) and it has covered 54,000 miles. I am the second owner and the car was originally silver. The car was originally my wife's and when my son was born in 1985 I decided as a present I would get it painted in her favourite colour, red.

This month’s car belongs to Mark Slade and features many modifications.

Originally this car was a two-tone VS but was re-sprayed around 15 years ago in Ferrari red.  Externally, this car features 1300 bumpers, a Ferrari style front grill and 15” split-rim alloys.  The car is lowered and has a fully adjustable Leda coilovers.  Aiding the chassis are box section steel bars to strengthen the sills.

Car of the Month February 2012

Submitted by Terry Gaskin

This is my fifth X1/9! Currently I have three X1/9's one being restored, one for spares and this one for using on the road. I spotted this one last year on Classic Cars for Sale. It had been used only in the summer months and dry stored over the winter period. I didn't view it I just took a chance and bought it which is not the advisable thing to do with cars. Fortunately it was a good choice.

I thought it was about time I submitted a car to the club site - I've owned X1/9's on and off for the last 25 years - 9 in total although I've owned this one twice! A '78 X1/9 1300 Serie Speciale (not registered until '79).
