OK, rochdaleGT, my German is OK, and none of these references appear to be from people who have bought the car. Furthermore, they date from 2013, 2013 and 2015.

A lot of the comments are from someone called Micha...who will be very familiar to long-standing members of this forum - he liked to make a fool of himself. Comparing the style of English makes me wonder....could you be one and the same?

Hey, Rochdale, you're my kind of guy, yeah!

Clicked on your links and it was sooo good to see the German Triumph fans picking up on the Sammio Spyder and really getting the zeitgeist (I know your English ain't that good so that kinda translates as 'vibe') to the point where they've even linked to a youtube clip of my pals Phil Jacklin and Barry May's cars - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upO-OOPe91s

And, hey, they both still have their cars and both absolutely love them, despite them being built in a shed! In England! By a Britisher called Phil! Scheisse!

Rochdale, I've just seen your Sportster over on the Marlin front suspension thread and it's a nice car.

There are a few things that aren't to my taste - I don't think the acid green over blue colour scheme works too well and I've never liked black wheels - but those are matters of personal taste.

What I'm struggling to understand, though, is how someone who owns a prototype roadster knocked together in a shed from an assortment of Ford, Rover and laying about the workshop parts, and clearly is justifiably proud of their car, can constantly and monotonously blather on about how bad other people's cars are.

Lucky is spot on with his observation above - that video epitomises the hobby, decent people enjoying their eccentric cars to the full, and if someone wants to pay quite a lot of money to join in the fun (which you seem to have done by buying rather than building your Marlin, btw) then that's their business.

Rochdale's car looks like a good example and will no doubt drive and handle very well with that powerful and light weight V8.

I'm not going to be drawn into the value vs costs vs quality. Its all very subjective and at the end of the day its between the buyer and seller, enthusiast to enthusiast. You pays your money and takes your choice.
