PP (no not Peter Penguin) I received a message through EBay, saying that the Sprinted Dolly darn Sarthend way,had been a problem with the highest bidder(a shiller?who knows)and if I'm stil interested to put in my highest bid-well as often, i didnt really think it out, before a few impulse bids.

when I bought another Mondeo 3 years back, getting two Fords onto the drive, as we have a garage full of toot, and also have a one hour parking restriction, so when that first one sold it was quite a relief, and a nicer result than having to scrap her(the Cortina before at least went into the gladitorial Essex Arena, as i had sold that to a stock car bloke nye on 10 years beforehand).

Also I bought yet another motorbike today,the seller delivered it in his van for free. That took my mind off  tomorrows angiogram, so trying that out between rain showers, was a good stress reliever too.

The Dolly done up like a Sprint was a nice thought.

The reality sometimes is you dont always find the experience the same the second time around-A second MG bore that one out once for me, also the worry of maybe having to fix a car roadside again is not high priority these days either.

Are you still looking at that red 1850?

The last time I looked for it - Tuesday - it wasn't listed. I assume it had sold... for £250.

I've seen a few Dollies recently advertised as Sprints and yet they haven't. That annoys me because some may be taken in by the initial description and don't fully question the seller.

Anyway, hope the tests go well tomorrow.

Cheers, pp

Oooo, lucky cat. Hope you win the auction.

Due to unforseen circumstances in the penguin household e.g. the oven imploding last week, I've had to put the search on hold for a week or so. Such is life. Hope to be back on track early next week, if the new oven turns up on time.

Keep us posted on the GT6.
