lucky escape or sadly missed?

Postby Mac » Fri 20 May, 2011 12:26 am

nearly bought this on eBay the other day.

Prevaricating over my bid, it was bought at the asking price.

sad I haven't got it, but glad Ive not got the work of restoration.

Think we'd be better with something that doesn't need welding and panels >?:PLO

Unless you really fancy the project, it would end up being cheaper to buy one in good condition in most cases.
Unless I'm very much mistaken...
Oh, I am very much mistaken!

Well, we have a seven seater so with this we have 9 seats, so that's practical isn't it? ;)

Besides Anj came up with the idea of renting it out for weddings and such. Seems you can charge about £150 a day for something like a midget/Sprite
