Hi Guys... yes YBP 5G is alive and well living in sunny (for now) Lancashire and yes he came to me with the name of Genghis. Pic from 2017 International attached.

How do club cars get there name ?

Robin named 'him' Ghengis.

The car was a serious nutter- it just wouldn't take no for an answer, off the clock on Mulsane straight- wonderful memory.
A car with a very great history & massive personality, their aint too many like 'him'!

Hello Rocky :P
The MK3 on the right used to belong to a chap called Peter Adams.. he had alot of property,.. I was a sub-contractor for him doing alot of works in his property's when I was 20years old and had my 1st Interceptor, I used to turn up to the Jobs in it!! :lol: .. he also had the "one off" Jensen Esperando.. which basically was a re-bodied CV8... Not sure what has happened to him now but it was so long ago and he was getting on a bit.. I guess he may have passed nowImage
Here is an article about t if you are interested>>
