two GTE SE6A'S for sale * easy project*

Hi Steve, Shiply quote to transport from Redruth to Worksop £370-£400. Not bad when you consider the 700 mile round trip but a bit rich for my low budget. Good luck with sale... Stu

local information/help needed

Hi, does anyone in the Redruth, Cornwall area know anything about a brown 6a being offered for sale on carandclassic.co.uk reg APG350T? My biggest problem is that it is 333 miles away from me. Perhaps someone local might be able to assist me in this purchase.

If you need even more encouragement, watch the gorgeous Ellie Harrison doing it on Countryfile (BBC iplayer from Monday)

I must admit I have taken this info from a similar thread on 'mx5 forum' pages.

If anybody needs convincing that this route is scenic, try looking at the "evo car of the year 2015" film on youtube (sorry, I can't do fancy things like links etc).

I wonder how long it will take for someone to suggest a 'Reliant le-jog or jog-le'? I can already sense people thinking about it, as I write.
