Hi Rick;
Being American he probably didn't understand the RULES, in English, for new contributors.

At first I thought that the $45,000 asking price was a joke! or maybe this was for 10 Ford Pops?

It is only for 1 car, however the seller has made some improvements that justify the price.

    He has re-trimmed the interior with some surplus material from a late Austin Allegro, giving this car a more modern 1980's feel.
    The non standard wheels may look tasteless, but I bet they improve performance.
    I notice a clever trick with the wiring: keep the old wiring but cover it in some flexible ducting from Screwfix, this will ensure that any small fires caused by the original wiring failing will be contained....for a while...
    The 4" chrome exhaust tail pipe will help ensure that every one of this vehicles 30hp will do its job.
    He has fitted a new horn, and confirms that it works!...now that's a testament to the quality of a no expense spared restoration


I can see now where I've been going wrong with my own restorations.

Dave,

I assume that you have to subscribe to photobucket to see the images.

(Sigh) can I make it any clearer?

In the new-joiners email I even specifically refer to the modest advert t&cs. If it's on ebay, everyone who wants to see it will do anyway.

Delete & block again.

We could do with a ''report post'' button perhaps?
