Re: Daimler DB18 Barker Special Sports

If it's too good to be true, it probably is.

Anyway, I don't think it's always a good idea for a young man to drive an old car without instruction and a potential buyer should always look at the car.

A seller should never be rushed or bounced into a sale.

Laurence said "Not really Steve, It isn't that clear where the "A" to "B" spec cars are divided. There were "B" spec cars going out in the Autumn of 1960 whereas the company 'officially' released in the Spring of 1961.

Re: Footman James Restoration Show 2nd &3rd Nov

Good idea, Alan. I would like to be there, but perhaps not all the time as my back gets very tired and painful.

Some people might like a rally, perhaps up Cheddar Gorge.
Make sure it's a dry, warm day in summer. :D
