The old stickers and distressed dashboard are very clever :-)

The sales patter "original ones are worth 3M" and similar really annoy me though - am I alone on this, or do others feel the same? You wouldn't find Seiko selling a watch saying "a Rolex would cost 5K" (or at least I haven;t seen it.
Reminds me of few years back I asked a trader at Stoneleigh what price his kit was. I nearly fell over when he said

Reminds me of few years back I asked a trader at Stoneleigh what price his kit was. I nearly fell over when he said 85k, but I managed to mutter "no..... I didn't meant a built car, I meant a kit I could build for myself. He re-iterated the KIT price was 85k, stating that a real one would be 2M or whatever daft sum.
It strikes me as a feeble way to sell a product - If he'd said "our chassis is built to a tolerance of +-2mm total, and all the GRP is heatproof resin (or whatever) that, to me would be better justification for pricing level. As a close inspection revealed his welding didn't appear any better (or worse) than many of the other cars on display at a fraction of his price, and material content was similar, I could only draw one conclusion. Nice car though

I got there in the end.! For whatever reason a GBPound symbol sends the software into a tizzy. My apologies for the duplicate notes - I'll try to delete them. ETA - I can't seem to do that either . Bangs head against wall...

An original might be worth x amount but the buyer of a replica will only pay what it is worth to them and no amount of chat will make them pay more ( in most cases ! ) I didn't have much luck selling through Historics, but it depends entirely on who is bidding on the day. The replica scene remains very buoyant and the credibility of well built, accurate examples is only gaining momentum.
