That's an old ad for the rally car. It was down to $7k last time I asked, and Alex K was handling the sale.
Could be? I have just heard the price of stuff in in dream land!
My take: Virginia took some well-intentioned but somewhat optimistic advice on the value of stuff. When the rally car failed to sell, she asked a bit more widely, and got some more realistic advice on the rally stuff.
Whether this has flowed over to the rest of the stuff, I don't know.
Did all of this stuff sell or is some of it still around?
still there nothing sold so far as of last wednesday
Does anyone know if the 145 is still available? And who the best contact is?
A family member is after a good 145.
It was not on the list, do you want a 145s? I know someone selling one
Yeah I'd love to find out the details, any chance you can PM or msg me more info?
Does anyone know the price for the 240?
