Yuck Timing

Talk about cr*p timing for a listing. Don't know whether anyone is bidding one this.

In another day or so when the Team Thailand Landcrab is sold assuming no last minute problem and my other windfall happens (workshop/garage and lots of Triumphs will be finished off!) I would be in there bidding, but money on either not due for a week!

For the benefit of others lets hope whoever wins is not going to sell the badges for stupid money!

Quite agree with you Lee - for that quantity at £3 each but I would have outbid this if my cash had come through and sold them off at cost plus out of pocket expenses. The problem is when they are sold off singly will the price of each rocket or will they be priced reasonably?

Well Lee, when I first saw them on here last week, I thought that's more badges than there are cars to put them on !

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4657

Good value @ £3 each though.

But if you needed one for a Mk1 PI where else are they available .......?

Also there would probably be people without a Mk1 PI interested in buying an odd one at some time out of interest so recovering your outlay would not be impossible.

I have several of these 2500 bumper centre foils if anyone is interested - I can't see me getting a Mk1 PI at the moment even if a decent one did surface (although you never know what lies in the future!). I have more than my fair share of cars at the moment........
