sorry but that should be in the "bargin" section at that price £2.5k tops, I've seen some better Cortinas go for less than the estates price

Fair play to 'TEH DOKTOR', he knows what he's doing and it pays off. And we have confirmation that the cars are as good as they look (which figures, all it'd take was one feedback saying "Loads of filler and the wheel fell off" and he'd be ruined). He just sells the finest cars to people with probably a little more cash than you or I. I am also a bit puzzled by the sunshine though. Maybe he makes so much cash on each sale, he can afford to ship every car to the south of france for a photoshoot?

Hey I aint slagging her doktor of in the slightest, fair play that he gets folk to pay that money and he obviously preps them very well, and I dont doubt he is a nice bloke, I was just refering to the actual price.......

WTF is 'german look'? Listening to the fuggin skorpions while combing your mullet?.

Don't get me wrong, I am not slagging off the Doctor, but I wondered about the price. If some are happy to pay it, good lick to him though. Maybe he could pass on the Ids of the underbidders :wink:

Fair play to him I say. A lot of effort must go into sourcing and prepping the cars and there are obviously enough people willing to pay a decent premium for a first rate car. I would imagine he's making a reasonable return out of doing it and theres probably not that many of us wouldn't do the same if we could.

Yup, I imagine he's had a few wasted journeys to see a "mint" car only to discover that it's anything but. Presentation is everything, and he seems very good at that. Cars well prepped, good photography and good descriptions. Not rocket science, but very well executed, and it seems he's reaping the rewards. Can't blame someone for making a profit!

I sold my Austin 2200 to him, which was pretty much mint apart from a dented bonnet, and top of wing, he repaired the damage, detailed the engine bay, and put it on ebay for about £1500 more than I got for it from him. Considering he also had to MOT and register it in UK [ex Jersey car] I thought that was pretty reasonable

If you think about it, aside from having to lay out for professional bodywork repairs and buying parts I reckon A LOT of graft goes into getting those cars prepped, easily a week and let's face it an average weekly wage has got to be around £6-700 so not a huge profit, I would be better off selling late, low mileage cars really. He highlights good cars and brings them to a standard that serious enthusiasts are prepared to buy at a premium and more than likely get kept that way, which has got to be good for us tat lovers!

Sounds like a fair profit, which I don't mind. What I object to is being ripped off, or other people being ripped off, buyers and sellers. An honest profit is what it's all about, nobody is a charity these days.

Yeah, I reckon he's retired or semi-retired, or works from home or something. Fair play to him. He puts in a lot of effort, got to assume that he's unearthing these things from deceased estate sales, local rags and the like. Probably got a tame bodyman on side, but that ain't going to be cheap - you'll always pay top whack for good paint.I don't think he's involved in shill bidding - there's always going to be folk out there who have the money for "the best" of a particular model and he does do a very detailed writeup and excellent photos, so I am pretty convinced his motors are genuine and aren't full of wag.

I know that 610 SSS well. It belonged to a mate of mine until recently. He sold on and I'll wager that the reason it's back up for sale is the guy he sold it to pulled the front wings off and discovered some major nasties behind them.To be fair, it's as good as you'll get if you want one of these as there simply aren't any available any more.

I'd certainly 'tap' that 1.7 Ibeefa, looks in good condition and I'd imagine 1700cc + wafer-thin tin is fairly nippy.However, it would be instantly forgotten if I had that R/C Rancho. I'd sell all my testicles for that, even the ones I keep for best.

I'm sure this same bloke has come up on here before, with an Ital and some sort of 80's Lancia. I recognise the SPASTIC CAPITALS and the need to use DIFFERENTCOLOURSFOR EVERYOTHERWORD On booth I remember he was threatening to race or crush them. And both examples being so rusty they were best suited for making washing machines anyway.
