Off topic question for my BC buds

Post by zephyrgary » Mon Mar 05, 2018 9:00 pm

Does anyone in BC know anything about this particular car? Maybe seen it at a show or something? The owner's English is not so good so there was a bit of a communication barrier. It seems like a nice car for the money. Thanks in advance,
Gary

I don't know the car or owner but I keep looking at it on Craigslist, it does present well doesn't it.

I tried to communicate but the owner was reluctant to do so and my Chinese is not up to the task.

Photos look good ( I finally got him to do one of the engine bay after a few emails) and if anyone is SERIOUS about this car I can have a look for you as it is close to where I live.

If you are into that style of old Brit car here is another B.C. car for sale that was brought to my attention. It might interest you??

I saw that this morning. It looks to be a very nice car but it is not on my car bucket list. A Westminster is, although I almost bought an XJ6 this week. Still waiting to re furb my MK3 Zodiac, but I got sidelined when my Morris Minor caught fire a month after a bare metal repaint. Why do we do this again...?

PM'd you.

Will return to the scene of the crime Saturday all being equal. I could do it after 6pm but I want to see it in the daylight.

The why? Wish I knew - I bought a Vtec Mini a month or so ago and haven't driven it yet and am now looking for a completely rust free Austin America/MG1100/1300 so I can Vtec that and not drive it.

Why?

Wish I knew - then I might stop.

As I say to my wife, at least I don't play golf.

Exactly, why do we do it.

Driveway at the moment has 67 Mk2 GT that I just got running tonight, 64 Mk1 Estate, My 70 Mk2 GT is now sitting in storage and my 69 Mk2 Estate project has been put back in storage as work had stopped on it.

I tell my wife, at least you know where to find me, out in the Garage working on Cortinas or polishing the GT350 Shelby

Last simmer when I had 6 cars the wife said, whenever we come home it looks likes there's a party going on.
