  9. My time is of no consequence, just thought my cars. maybe little interest to Americans buyers , but thanks for your prompt will post just in case other Europeans are following forum like me . You reference to warm beer , usually called real ale or bitter over here , never been my tipple , since a teenager liked buds, Miller or corona cold out the fridge , not sure who to thank , probably US troops brought lager here , mind you strong marketing here for fosters Aussie lager . Good stuff to.
  10. Returning to Uk from Cyprus , planning 2 to 3 years hence live in Victorian town house ( victorians rarely had cars so no garage , created parking in front of house ,but not ideal for classic cars , already have two cars in Uk , will Sell one . Therefore , Although I love them all can only accommodate one so will be put up for sale in due course 1960 Mga fully restored Lhd 1958 Austin Healey 100/6 BN4 fully restored RHD and last but not least sadly 1953 Buick special convertible (Ruby) fully restored Lhd
  11. Having 3 cars that originate from US , and circumstances dictate that I need to sell two or all due to loss of storage space in two years time I wonder if it’s worth advertising on this forum , would be willing to ship cars back , but couple of potential issues make me think probably a waste of time , issues such as import tax and reluctance of buying abroad due to trust issues and inspection
  12. Some good information and suggestions , going to change my payment terms on ad thanks guys
  13. Car is a 1960, 1600 California car , but I brought to Cyprus to restore , completed now, if you want more info just pm me .would ship back
  14. Although he is offering to send via pay pal , he could have done that as my email was listed in ad , but wants me to send request for money from PayPal ,must be some reason for the request . Just realised that will give him my name ,he already has email address and telephone number , think he may be collecting information for identity theft
  15. Having just advertised my Mga for sale I received scam emails in the first day , so I although I received the usual , scam want to buy emails , saying I’ll send you money if you send me your details etc,. I also received the one shown below , this is a new angle to me so thought I’d post to warn others. I’m not sure how it works , welcome suggestions . Just add I didn’t respond.
  16. Had a friend who was on a Royal Navy escort destroyer to Artic convoys to archangel during WW2 told me they had to careful relieving oneself on deck , ice formed immediately and had to wipe with tissue otherwise could get icicle or frostbite on your tinkle. 😁
