Re: Speedys 1975 se5a

Well youve all been busy while Ive been in Gloucester :lol: VOSA will inspect the car, but there is no recompense to myself, all they will do is give the MOT tester a warning. :roll: Ebay it would seem arent covering car sales, and cash sales arent top of their priority either - Im awaiting a respon...

Re: Speedys 1975 se5a

Ebay wont play ball at the minute. Seller has just responded thus - I have checked my description and it is perfectly accurate.
