Dammit I guess I'm to late to secure this. Someone will have beaten me to it, what a bargain, what engineering, something so exclusive and special its almost imaginary. What a lucky lucky guy.

Great contrast of two cars made at the same time. One made in a shed by craftsmen whilst in recievership, one in a factory of blokes also heading for recievership.

Re: Fuel prices

Well over NZ $2 a litre.
