Although we don't see much of eric and luke, I believe the other moderators do an absolutely fantastic job of keeping the fo...

Market values - 3 more data points

Good news for present owners, but not such good news for impoverished pensioners hoping to get back on board. The real benefit is that Reliant ownership gives a better return on savings than banks!

SE5a hiding in eBay collection

This chap is one of the forums' favourites. Last year he had 5 GTEs for sale, and anybody that tried to ask him a question got both barrels in reply. He did have one car which was advertised for many weeks after the others had been sold, which just disappeared. I, too, saw the Scimitar in the backgr...

London T-Charge

Hi Loxford, I am now concerned about ULEZ. Producing millions of new vehicles and encouraging their sales is massively energy and resource hungry.

two GTE SE6A'S for sale * easy project*

Hi Steve, Shiply quote to transport from Redruth to Worksop £370-£400. Not bad when you consider the 700 mile round trip but a bit rich for my low budget. Good luck with sale... Stu

local information/help needed

Hi, does anyone in the Redruth, Cornwall area know anything about a brown 6a being offered for sale on carandclassic.co.uk reg APG350T? My biggest problem is that it is 333 miles away from me. Perhaps someone local might be able to assist me in this purchase.
