Ah but did they never, ever officially import not even a few LHD cars into the UK ?

I've already started a post on the cakk that I've seen imported......got shot down in flames and you were in the Spitfire so choose your 'side'.

Probably not too far off Sean from what I think the reserve "should" be however i think BAT will hit me up for $15-17K reserve.

He who dares wins Rodders ( or Michael ) a saying we all know and love this side of the pond, unless you are an afficianado for classic British comedy series may mean nothing, but you get the drift.

I will bid it to $ 20k so you have a safety net

If BaT want a $15k reserve Mike, I'd tell them where to go ... that's daft. We'd all give you that NOW. And Chris a lot more. So START at $20k ... otherwise what's the point. From the little I've seen (in detail) of the car and bearing in mind others that have gone through on BaT of similar spec I'd say late 20s ... so I'd want a reserve of mid 20s ... otherwise there's people over in Europe who would snap that up for decent money I'm sure.

Even in brown.

Only you know what it cost you and what it's costing to get ready for sale so only you're privy to the figures ... and know how much you need to make.

My sentiment as well regarding reserve however I have heard that the reserve they set is fairly low for those that are selling.

As for pricing, I think your numbers are spot on and what I had in mind. Guess we'll see how it all plays out in the end.

Been busy working on this 65K original mile car for the last week or so.

Sorted the non-working electric fuel pump after replacing 2 of the fuel pump relays on the passenger side kick panel

Installed the stub axles and installed new brakes including master.

Engine detail the last few days and the o'l lady got her first bath since 1998.

On to the interior this week and install of a serviced rad after I fetch it from the rad shop.

More pics next week.
