Talking Facebook to the rescue. Again!

I've been tracking Spitfires on Ebay thinking that I'd be spending a small fortune buying a complete car, then having all the time and trouble of breaking it and selling the unwanted bits.

This morning I thought I'd have a look in the 'Small Chassis Triumphs' FB group (without much hope) just in case there was one advertised. What popped up was a comprehensively refurbished chassis with a V5 but minus wheels and engine that the owner had decided to break as he hadn't been able to sell as a unit.

A contact message from me elicited a prompt 'phone reply and after verifying exactly what was for sale we agreed 700 including delivery tomorrow!

Serendipity indeed!

Regards, Mick
