    I saw the remains of 37455 sitting in weeds behind a house in Mechanicsville, Virginia on 23 November 2003. There was nothing left of it except a bit of inner chassis sheet metal and the VIN plate on the firewall. Yes, the original engine was 29K/RU/H12116, but the engine was no longer with the car. The BJ8 Registry has a record of one owner in Florida in the mid-1980s, but contact information was no longer valid and I was unable to determine how the car got to Virginia and deteriorated to such a state. I understand that whatever remains there were ended up in England, but the car that left the factory with the chassis number 37455 no longer exists.

    Correction: the only thing left on the firewall was the body number plate, which BMIHT determines belonged to HBJ8L/37455.
