Any pictures Citroen7? Can't find any proper ones from Richards threads.

IIRC from the 2007 ICCCR photo's there were three light blue GT's, one of them is now mine, one looks to be Balbadazza's so who's is the third? If this one can be found then 8 of the 12 left (according to howmanyleft.com) are accounted for on here! That's really cool.

According to howmanyleft.com there are 12 left registered, as you say Tim 5 were OTR in Q3 last year and 7 sorned.

So here are 7 accounted for out of 12 (including Richards digit which I believe is registered as a GT and his GT he sold to someone in Scotland), that's quite impressive!

These DVLA figures could be very misleading, I was just looking at one type and looking at the decrease year by year, and thinking, "who would be scrapping these cars, as they get older and collectable ?"...

Then I realised, they are giving figures for those "licensed" or "SORNed".
I still have at least two old cars which are neither licensed nor sorned, because, after 10 years, they stop asking you to sorn them, but they are still on the DVLA register.
I have the V5s for them.

I agree, ebay sellers always quote 'how many left' and the like to 'big up' rarity.. I'd say for the likes of models that register 5-10 examples left there must be 3 to 5 times that amount hidden away. I think people underestimate the swarming size of populations - and their old cars!

Oops,

Told you in my first post we were not sure. No markers on the back, and much messed with before we took her on. 5 years between manufacture and first registration?
