Ok, quick update, have spoken to Max and he is very happy that the full cars are going to good homes
he is quite insistent that aside from the Tercel, which is monumentally rotten, he would really like updates on progress on the rest of the cars - as that is his passion and business, and as a sign of good faith that they aren't being fragged as a quick buck making exercise - I assured him that is not what we Shiters are about - so please feel free to give him updates or maybe just post on here - I may even get him to join our merry band, he would love it I'm sure, aside from the modernz
He also added he would like cash monies for some of the parts, notably the engines and gearboxes not attached to the vehicles already mentioned, such as the Volvo, due to the fact he runs a 240 anyway, and that possibly applies to anything you may spot in his workshop we haven't mentioned you take a fancy to - after all, everything has a price does it not?
Max's business is the restoration of mainly Mini's, so he doesn't usually sell Mini parts, and welcomes supplies of them, but any other marques basically are fair game to purchase off him, aside from the stuff he's giving away.
I realise this is muddying the waters somewhat, but please bear in mind he has a business to run and knows what he has been invested in the various cars and parts over the years and is a little gutted
He has mentioned he has a Metro diesel engine available to purchase, and some similar Pug diesel engines possibly for sale - forgot to mention prices will be very competitive - more details as they become available, it honestly is an exciting place full of hidden shite everywhere
Anyway, all the cars offered up so far are claimed awaiting collection, there is a possibility there are a couple more if agreements are broken, which happens
I am unfortunately busy this afternoon as my Daughter has just been made redundant, so I'm ferrying her around to the Pub with her equally unemployed-now colleagues, to discuss her payout terms and drink booze, so please don't think I'm ignoring anyone
