Jan. 6, 1990: A teenage boy (me) goes to the Los Angeles Auto Show, gawks at a Vector on display, and takes a picture of it.
1992: Some guy invents the internet.
Oct. 30, 2010: I post the 1990 picture on this blog.
Nov. 1, 2010: J, a German Vector fanatic, tells me that there is a yellow Vector near me. He puts me in touch with the owner.
Today: I visit that yellow Vector.
I heard the Vector before I saw it. The low V8 rumble does not sound like anything I've heard before. The scissor door opens and Tony, the proud owner, jumps out and greets me.
Jump to 1:50 to see the electo-luminescent display in action.
Tony tells me that a few Vectors' screens have completely gone kaput. His screen, for the most part, works just fine.
This example has around 7,000 miles. Tony believes this and another W8 in Japan get driven the most by their owners.
first result is a post from another Vector owner looking for a replacement to put in his car.
Does that answer your question, Alan?
Thanks again, Tony, for sharing your beautiful and rare machine!
