Someone just posted this in another thread

Chrome side trim really changes the look of the car also the chrome trim on the screen edge

Prompted by a post by RayHutch on the Formosa forum, I've just looked this car up.

It went for over £5,000 more than the top guide price, £17,545!

https://www.historics.co.uk/buying/a...lia-speedster/

Which supports Mister Towed's theory about selling these cars where people are looking at the prices for 'real' ones.

Cheers, Paul.

When you factor in the hours it takes to build a car like this then the buyer is getting a bargain. Whilst you don't think about it when building your project because you are building the car for yourself, you still end up with a valuable product when its finished.

I am the lad who bought it. Yes, $15.5k plus buyer’s premium and logistics to Hong Kong. Not to mention the first registration tax if I register it on the road. Likely to use the clsssic car moving permit and/or trade license plate initially but as someone over here reckons the time and passion to build this kitcar is way more valuable than the legal tender I contributed. I have no experience in the engine of this car so if anyone knows this car please enlighten me with whatever info is available. Thanks in advance and apologize for my Chinguish as English is my second language

Onlinesys Welcome to the forum.

Most of the Sammio/ Miglia/ Formosa style cars sold go to Europe so it's nice to hear one of them making it all the way to Hong Kong.

Why not start a new thread and tell us all about your experiences with your new toy!!

Hi micky1lo, not sure if my one is the only one in HK though. The car should be now on the ship and ETA 20/4. I will start a thread once it is arrived. As I am a rookie on kitchen, I will be having a lot of questions and queries in this forum. Stay tuned

Onlinesys – Welcome to the forum.

There are not many Miglias on the road in the UK, so I am sure you will have a veryunique car in Hong Kong.

I don’t know anything about your car, but there are other Miglia builds listed in this thread.

http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/foru...ead.php?t=4782

Unfortunately, this thread needs a bit of an update and there are problems with some of the photos.

Good luck, Paul.

PS
Don’t worry about your English, as I wouldn’t even know where to start with Chinese.

Forum over here ? can I have a link to that please?

Tribute aren't advertising the Miglia . I think Chris has reservations about mould quality and just doesn't have the time to deal with it due to current workload ...but please don't take that as gospel ...

Finally arrived in HK. Drove from container warehouse back to hime but coolant temperature was always at the maximum. A bit panic so drive directly to the garage. Mechanic suspected the sensor cable of coolant is faulty as everything seems ok. Speedometer not working neither. Driver’s seat is non-adjustable. Need a cushion as my legs are not long enough for a comfortable position. Everything else seems fine and the triple Weber and exhausts sound great

Onlinesys - Nice car! and i'm glad to hear it arrived safely!

It's good to know that there are other Miglia's out there, even if they are the other side of the world

The niggles you mentioned sound really minor, so i imagine that you'll be out-n-about and enjoying the car in no time and we look forward to some different location shots!

Just took it out for 2 days morning drive as we are approaching the summer heat wave at 35 degree c in the day time. All well except the sticky brake lights, non moving odo and speedometer.
Triple Weber and 2500TC engine and exhausts sound fabulous
