    Default wanted spotted in Sydney: matra djet

    There is supposed to be a metallic blue Matra Djet somewhere in Sydney (or there was). If anyone ever sees it would they be good enough to note and pass on its registration number as I'd like to be in touch with the owner. Cheers! Peter

    I don't think the rego will be much use to you, unless you're the registered owner.

    I assume that was the blue one; I bought that and seek contact with any other oz owner (I am in conversation with Frans in NZ - with his Jet 6)

    cheers! Peter

    It has its merits - it was 37,700 km from new (1966 Djet V) when bought by me - owing to long periods of storage by one owner. Then it was refurbished by the next two owners (including a new 1.4 modded with a 40 mm Dellorto sidedraft). So far I've put 3k on it (twisty Tassie "C" roads mainly) making me its most intense user/guardian so far.

    I'd love to track down the Qld one in particular as it sounded a bit derelict & I'd relish having a spare.

    cheers! Peter

    Do you have any Q'ld Renault contacts Peter? I'll be there in ten days for a bit of work and will see at least one of them and can ask around. They may well not have followed this post.

    Cheers
