A warning to use all - especially the youngsters

Why do people do bank transfers before seeing the vehicle I have bought and sold a couple of classic cars in the past and on both cases have only done bank transfers once I have seen the vehicle and paperwork and am satisfied.

Scammers

Hi just like to inform members the scammers are back with the Red sabre and the Purple SE5a so I wouldn't bid unless you want to loose your money.

They are all over Ebay they come onto the Lotus Excel site and are also on the TVR site and most of all on the Chevrolet Corvette site.

Spare Parts For Sale

I just thought some of you would want some of these bits rather than throw them away, knowing how hard it is to find parts for these cars. But it seem that some of the people that think they own this forum, and think that they have the god dame right to abuse some on here that it is OK. That was why...

GTE Owners Workshop Manual

Thanks AJL I got a quote to paint mine 6-7K and 5K+ if I strip it and rebuild it, when asked why so much was told that it would take about 60 hours to prep and 3 bays to paint at £70 per hour + materials, and in a heated booth all that time to stop damp getting in to it.

GTE Owners Workshop Manual

My view the reason parts are so cheap are because the cars are so cheap and that is because they all need a paint job which will cost you 6-7K by a body shop if you can find one, as the body is all in one, where as most other classic cars are made up of separate panels and can be done by a diyer at ...

Spare Parts For Sale

Yes the parts might be sold out and obsolete but the pictures remain the same which would help someone find the correct part and lets face it the catalogue is 35 years old and obsolete and so are the cars.

But for £5 I wouldn't even bother to parcel it up let alone go to the trouble to post it.
