XK150 for sale. It was inevitable I suppose.

It seems that David now wants another project and he has indicated that he may sell.
So if you wish to own an XK150 that is better than new, then please get in touch.
Obviously, it's location cannot be divuldged, other than the 'North of England', but if you would like to pop an email to me via the address shown below I will pass it on.

A Message from the webmaster

Everyone may think it's David's blog, but it isn't.
We are a group of friends interested in classic cars, bikes and beer.
I run this for David, his skills lay elsewhere.
I wish I could match his engineering skills!!!
Last Friday, over the usual beers, David mentioned that the upholstery is due back and then it is only a matter of days before the car is complete.
A big argument then ensued as to what the car is worth.
When compared to what is out there, with no documentation, I reckon that David's is as close to a Brand New car as you can get.
I reckon £100,000+
Another XK owner said less.
What do the blog followers think? Please send suggestions to me at the address shown below.THIS IS ONLY A BIT OF FUN. THE CAR IS NOT FOR SALE.(Yet!!!)
