RD400c RUF 258R
« on: January 23, 2019, 10:49:49 PM »
I randomly checked the DVLA database for my first RD 400 that in owned from 1st registration in Sussex and was pleasantly surprised to find that ‘she’ has survived the last 40 odd years and is currently taxed (June 2019). Do any members on here recognise the reg and know where abouts in the country she might be? I have photos from the day I picked her up from the dealer. Thanks in advance for any info.
