    I'll go and have a good poke around and may try and watch it go up for sale, I'll be at the meeting for the weekend. It looks like a very honest car that would make a great drivers car.

    All being well my car will be part of the parade around the circuit on Saturday morning as well EXTRA:D

    Whilst you are there have a look at the AC 2-4-6. I love that car even though it's a hybrid (Jag engine). That car will be subject to an MoT under the new scheme - perhaps the reason for the sale. http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/24874/lot/102/?category=list&length=10&page=11

    I'll keep an eye out for it, sounds like quite an interesting take on something more vintage. I quite like the idea, it must pull like a train. The old AC workshop is also just down the road from me as well, I didn't realize it was there for years until a Christmas walk one day.

    I presume it will suddenly require an MOT due to the engine, gearbox and steering swap which will be classed as significant changes?

    Yes because the changes were done in the last 30 years. The original engine was 70 bhp, this one is about 210!

    Interesting, so playing devils advocate how would they prove the alterations weren't made over 30 years ago? Surely just relying on peoples honesty...

    I'm sure it will be a riot with that much power and those tyre sizes though! :driving:

    I think they are suggesting looking at V5 alteration dates?

    It's a minefield

    Ah yes that would make a lot of sense and be pretty fool proof.

    As ever.

    Has anyone seen, or have any knowledge of this car?
     
  12. Rob Gaskin

    Which car white or blue. I don't have any idea of either but they both look good cars from the pics and descriptions.

    Was the blue one I was meaning, I've no chance of making it down in time for the white one.
    Pity, it does look good.

    Should be under the hammer now. Anyone there? Our friend was going to look but they were charging to get into the auction so he didn’t bother. :(

    Yeh the Datsun didn't sell but the AC which had an estimate of 12-14k I think (and why I was attracted to it) sold for £40k.

    Saw a very dodgy 240Z there, complete with old man's cap in the boot!!

    And a really cool device connected to an Escort on a bitterly cold day.

    Yeh a good device. That Escort looks like a Mk1 Capri to me.

    LOL, yep, you're probably right there Rob ;)

    I had a frozen face / brain today even with 6 layers and a ski hat on - so I can't be completely sure I remember correctly ;)

    So was that reserve not met or not enough interest in the room..?
