 :) Probably dreamers but there are folks who have a romantic notion of regaining their youth who don't know any different. Actually I think I know about the romantic notion but fortunatly I do know different.(I think)
Take care

 :)Hi
I just looked this guy up.

Apparently he's been an Ebay member since 2012 but his history lists no sold items.

I bought an old M20 in 2015 from another guy doing equally stupid advert prices also from Birmingham and also Egyptian imports.

So it could well be a scam or he is simply overpricing everything. I guess it will take someone living near Brum to take a look. Sorry I'm too far away.

The guy I bought from whilst based in Brum actually stored at a lock-up near Warwick.

But it sounds suspiciously like "brothers in arms"

You should have been a detective mike! (although maybe you are/were!)

I think ebay is getting worse for stuff like this.

cheers
