Another TVR has snuck in....looks like a it has come in via this dealer....however 4.3L Griffs were not made in 1999, just 500's...they made them from 92-94.....so this is not a 1999 car. The wheels and dash and lights are all consistent with with a pre-cat early car....nice colour, check the chassis out before you buy.

Nearly finished MX5 V8 would be a fun toy.

Looks like it's been squeezed in quite nicely - you have to wonder what the handling would be like at the limit, but gotta be some fun to play with.

You've been keeping busy on PH Ben... making any special plans for your 10,000th?

That is lovely. I wouldn't be allowed an Escort with paint that nice though as it would have a bad case of gravelrash after the first week.

What is it about this car that it is forever on trademe.
http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/lamborgh...

Does it get sold or is it a bad 'un? Not that I'm interested!

Maybe it's because the auctions are quite short and the car is not selling before the auction closes?

Although it appears to have sold 3 times.
However it is has always been re-listed by the same seller in the past year. (kiwifun365-Ron of Manukau)

Photos appear to have been taken at The Parade, Bucklands Beach.

As I thought, on the market for a year nearly - seems to be going round the block a few times. What's wrong with it? The seller doesn't want to sell but has to be seen trying??

I suspect the solds are "friendlies" helping bump up the price, if it sells , then it is only a small sucess fee?? I think at the end of the day the price wanted is not meeting the price being offered.....

It's been in $1 reserve auctions before and sold for $120k or so but every time the sale has "fallen through" ... Which means the seller hasn't got the price he was after. He's a faker and a cock of the highest order.

Yeah - first S1 I have seen for sale for a while
Good to see it listed close to $30000
Makes my "investment" sound better that the $26000 cars last listed
Will be interested to see how long it takes to sell

There have been a couple change hands recently non-advertised. This looks like a good tidy standard car (aside from the headlight covers)... it's even on the original PZeros!

If it's in good nick underneath, it'll be a good buy. I'd dearly like my father to buy this, but I don't think he's in the market right now.

Any advice on this car? http://www.turners.co.nz/Vehicles/Pages/Car.aspx?R...
Looks too good to be true, even cheaper than UK prices.
