Hi Everyone

I have just purchased this Dolomite Sprint and although it has come with a fair amount of history, I just wondered if anyone knew the car previously?
The previous owner, Peter Johnson, has unfortunately passed away and the car has been in storage for the last 12 years.
The registration number is TLE 831W and I have attached some photos.

Thanks in advance
Tony

Stored very well if that's what it came out looking like! Dolomites do look nice in blue it has to be said.

We're sad to hear of the news about Peter, he was a very active member back in the day. We remember the car very well and we are delighted that it has found a new home. Enjoy :D

Did not Know Peter but when I bought the car there where some photos and a phone number so I rang the number and spoke to his wife [who told me he had passed away] she was pleased to hear that I had bought the car ,and asked if I would send her a photo of the car so I will as soon as I can she also said he cherished the car ,be nice to find a bit more about the car.
