  1. Mine went in exactly the same way a month ago - also on Collecting Cars. Also after 10 years of ownership. She now resides in Malta! Brilliant car but the time was right for a change. Like Jay Man, I also have a newer 911, so still count myself to be a very lucky chap!!!
  2. For sale as no longer required: Genuine Porsche 6-pin DME relay. Never removed from packaging - £50 + p&p. Front amber indicator lenses. No chips or cracks. Great condition. £15 + p&p for the pair. Amber side repeaters, including bulbs. Just off my car and in good working order. Backside could do with a clean. £10 + p&p for the pair.
  3. I, too, have a Ferrari itch to scratch. It’s a very normal problem...
  4. I’m with RB on this. My only regrets from selling will be because I loved my IB and certainly not from a financial perspective. My overall thought is how lucky I was to have 11 fantastic years of motoring - many never have the chance.
  5. Yes - my car! It is going to Malta. Very sad to be selling. I have a 997 which is amazing, and just couldn’t justify my IB. Also have MGC and TR4, so just too much stuff. Really straight car which needs a few things doing - not unusual - they all do. Will probably regret for ever - we’ll see. Collecting Cars is a superb platform for selling, but it’s quite nerve wracking. Sat at £25k until the last 3 minutes and it then went bananas.
  6. I can help on the MG front. Based in Gloucestershire.
  7. 2 years ago, I went on a track weekend in Nantes in convoy with a great friend who had terminal cancer. I was in the IB, he was in his 997 which I now own. We departed Nantes for Calais at 5am on a Sunday and gave it big beans the whole way. 2 months later, cancer got the better of him. On the very morning of his death, his widow and I both received 5 fines each - exactly the same cameras and exactly the same speeds. It was VERY expensive but one of the best runs I’ve ever had. At his funeral, his sister went through the alphabet to paint picture of him. ‘S’ was ‘Speeding with Sam’. I am wierdly fond of French speeding tickets...
  8. Michelin Alpins. 195/65 R15. Dated week 9, 2012. Barely used, with loads of tread. Grubby, but would clean up well. Collection from either S Derbyshire or near Cheltenham. £100.
  9. Nothing special - we have a couple of old Bantams which are fun for charging around on.
  10. Thanks for that link Mondrian. Busybee - see For Sale section the blasting cabinet that I have for sale. I also have a Sealey Parts Washer for sale, but haven’t listed it yet. Sam Haha - we were posting at the same time.
  11. NJP - I think I want to keep 1 x cylinder mower and that’ll be the Suffolk Punch. Have just seen a nice reconditioned one one eBay for £400 - quite expensive! But many thanks for your interest. Sam
