  1. Interesting sales strategy, based on a $900 price increase in 7 days, in another month it will cost an additional $3,857. If it takes a year to sell the price could be $60,928. Better get in quick.😃
  2. Might be a test, if you offer market he might give it to you, if you nickel and dime him you might end up paying market anyway. I know what I would do.
  3. Fascinating thread. I know nothing about these Studebakers, however I notice compering the Indy Pace Car roadster photo with this car that the front fenders on this car appear to have a different shape and shallower crown than the cars in the other photos. They don't follow the tyres the same or come down as low at the front. Anyone agree?
  4. Thanks Dodgebrother. If the purchase goes through I will ship by covered transport to Vancouver. Then by 20’ container to Sydney.
  5. Thanks for the help everyone, much appreciated. Craig, thanks. I’m aware of the asbestos issues, I believe I can deal with them. Cheers John.
  6. Hi everyone, I live in Australia. I’ve previously imported cars from the US, four from Long Beach and one from Savannah GA, all for my own use. I’m interested in a car located in Quebec, the owner knows nothing about shipping and, to be fair, probably doesn’t care. My question is should I attempt to ship it from Canada or bring it into the States and ship from, say, New York? Can anyone assist? Many thanks, John.
  7. My pick, pity there were only four and the Le Mans coupe. Failing that one of the “production” Berlinettas or Spiders would suffice...
  8. We have a three owner April 1990 RHD Mariner Blue MX5 with 34,000 miles. Immaculate, with all books and history.
  9. Nice car and a nicer grille than the US version IMHO😁
  10. I run Evans in my old cars, have done for years. Most of the peripheral benefits of using it have been covered here. My understanding is that its not the water boiling that damages an engine its the steam pockets this creates at much higher temperatures than 212F, as coolant is lost. The much higher boiling point of Evans avoids this issue. I had a real world experience of this with my XK120 Jaguar. As we know, cooling in these is marginal. I had Evans in it and got stuck in traffic before I fitted an auxiliary electric fan (that became a mission in itself because the genny couldn’t cope). XK120s have a dual temp/oil pressure gauge. It got so hot the temp wound into the oil pressure quadrant, but it didn’t boil, so no coolant was lost and the engine didn’t stop and no damage. This was enough to convince me. John
  11. I agree, and surely you’d take the rocker molds off and paint under them? They’re a classic rust trap.
