    Have to agree with your ebay comment, a winning bid does not always mean a sale. Good luck with the sale.

    Really does look tidy, and keeps popin up everytime I look. If I remember the first go on e-bay didn't make reserve and I even bid on it the last time when it sold on the buy it now.
    Saw it on pistonheads and now here and it looks better every time. I'm 6' and trying to work out how I can loose some height!
    All the best with the sale this time.
