    My local garage threatened to excomunicate me if I got a PT. Aparently they are a bitch to work on and the spares are very expensive. The cario does look unfinished.

    Re: Project roadster on eBay.

    No engine pictures. Not properly registered could be a big problem. It does look like a barn find maybe a relative's old car. I wonder if the seller is reading this?

    Oh, I know that feeling, maybe we made someone think it was a good idea and they drove down and bought it. With a bit of luck we will hear from them soon. Now we wait for the next dreamboat. Dave
