Re: SP250

Bit of a strange place to sell an SP, don't you think? Easy to sell anonymously and no buyer protection.

Re: Whats an original number worth

What is it with numbers in this country? Most counties don't have a system that is open to such exploitation.

Re: Just bought.......

And could you find a Daimler V8 engine that somebody would part with? They aren't commonly found for sale and if they are, they'll be knackered.
A nice GM V8 and box maybe?

If only I could amend them titles!

[Admin: You can edit your own and if it's the first post all future posts will use the corrected title, but not the past ones, which I shall leave else it will make two posts nonsense. :D]

Collection of past issues "The Driving Member" plus 2 books

I'm certain that newer members would love reading these, they have a charm all of their own. From an ex-member....... I will be moving home in 2 weeks and found a box full of past issues in the attic which may be of interest to members. There are 164 magazines dating from April 1982 until April 1997...
