So it was too easy......... almost immediately - SD1 is correct.
I looked at an LTD 2 weeks ago and it was a true heap in every sense of the word - although the windows were closed when I viewed it, they obviously hadn't been when it was laid up in the nearby hedge!!!
Daimler V8 slipped through my fingers a couple of years back, ex's dad had one, had just paid over 10K!!! for total engine and box overhaul..... drove like a dream. He wanted shot (wife actually, a REAL dragon) and asked €5000 - Yup - you read that right - €5K...... I screamed yes over the phone and arranged to go get it that weekend (they are in Germany but it was a UK export). Wife decided that was too long and promptly sold it to another guy who came to look at it for €3500!!!!! I literally cried when I got there and it was gone, then got told the price she'd let it go for....... never ever forgave her for that (bitch).
I'm hoping to get this one for a bag o sand........ or less if I can wangle it. Linky to the ad below........ guy sounds fairly decent and went through a load of things already before I even asked to view.
