Beware sending a BACS payment to QRG

Really sorry to hear this - unfortunately it's been going on for years - it used to be called the Friday afternoon scam and I remember a friend of a friend losing something like £200k on a house purchase.

I’d probably buy this 6a from Daryl and spend a bit on the interior?

2ads for sale cars

Around 14 Scimitars for sale on eBay that I can see?

The most expensive two are both at dealers - this rebuilt 6a (would it have originally had an 8 track in 1977?) at £10.5k and this 5a auto at £8k with wrinkly dash and reflectors on the rear vents - oh, and no V5 :roll:

MOT exemption

MOT exemption isn’t “DVLA rules”, it’s a change in the law which I reckon trumps the insurance company.

They can say “unroadworthy = no insurance” but I really can’t see them saying “no MOT on an exempt vehicle = no insurance”?

I wonder if it is the oil pump, or the crank seal?

Manny took some pictures of his (here).

'pinned' topics gone / missing

We’re still discussing the best way forward but it seemed like time to do something - not sure the wiki is user-friendly enough, whether it should all be member only, or splitting the FAQ section into models?
