Just spoken to PO, Cath`s BIL.

He`s speechless too.
He sold it to a guy at the MOT station who made an offer on it when he took it for testing, so the car was sold in the impression that it would be MOT`ed and back on the road.
The guy even bought your hardtop? Phil.

WOODEN HEAD MORE LIKE.
I`m furious about this.
The car was a good runner and fit for a proper MOT and being kept on the road.
IF the dick had asked me I would have bent over backwards to buy it.
Words fail me.
Why has he chopped it up??. :dh
He won`t get his £1800 back selling it in parts.
WILL EVERYONE ON THIS FORUM BACK ME UP AND DON`T BUY ANY PARTS FROM THIS IDIOT ?? :w

But apart from the Unique bodywork what are folk going to get???
All the parts for Small Sports are out there without deleting a rare car from the world.
The ONLY thing that this car COULD have helped with would have been the Window frames, but they were already gone when Mick bought it.
My old seats from VVV went into it as I fitted different ones to VVV.
The engine is a Bluebird, so not original.
I will be finding out where this bloke is and paying a visit :twisted: :evil:
Against my better thoughts I have joined facebook and will be cancelling my account ASAP, what a load of ( I will edit my words to save the mod`s a job ).
Why do folk spend time and effort on this piece of *****.
Any way, I have found out the IDIOT is not in Keighley, but Leeds.

Who knows why eh. It's a shame, but no point getting pent up about it.

The way it's been cut up doesn't seem to follow any logic and I wonder if it's a spiteful two fingers up over something.

Can't recall whom it was I sold the hardtop to buy they were talking keenly about getting the car ready for paint and asking my opinions on keeping its current colour and what it might be worth. I was offered the car at that point for a price I deemed too high and hence made mention of it on Facebook so that others were aware of it.

Yes they had Geraint,
The seats in VVV when I bought it were a melody of Passenger seats and were well past their best.
I took them out to sort the rotten rubber bases and faulty catches and bought a few other sets to patch them up, I then found the better bucket seats as in VVV locally.
Mick who bought WGF needed better seats for the MOT, so made up a "Better" set out of VVV seats and the the others I had bought.
I`m left with the remnants of Two rebuilds of cars to get them on the road.
Now i`m clearing out the sheds I have what are left of these seats going for FREE collection, the covers are dead, but the frames may yield parts??.

Phil I was offered the car for £1800 by an Andrew Pages delivery driver who called at my place looking for another company.
He said he would pop back and give me the details, but my eviction has taken over my life ATM. :cry:
