I'm not trying to be 'that guy', but a 250 GTO (or MX250, in this case) is a curvaceous fifties car. A Mustang is a boxy sixties car. I'm not sure that Eleanor-inspired styling will work at all. Happy to be proved wrong, though!

306 Craig

Are you referring to the paint job on the Eleanore?
Gunmetal w/black stripe. Would look good on an MX250.

Gunmetal grey with a blood red interior is my favourite colour combo.
I have a SL 350 and I tried to get the gunmetal grey with a berry red interior but this colour combination just sells straight away second hand and seems to attract a premium price. I had to settle for boring silver but managed to get the berry red interior, makes such a difference to the normal boring grey.

Gunmetal grey with a blood red interior is my favourite colour combo - that would definitely work!!!!!

Houston we have ignition!!!!!

The guy has just come back to me and confirmed it is mine - he has assured me he isn't going to talk to anyone else - the ad should be coming off Gumtree soon.

Right, I need to get a transport company sorted now, anyone got any pointers?

I mentioned this in another thread, if you want to try a colour scheme you can do worse than use the garage in a game like Gran Tourismo. Lots of cars available and if you know how you can add stripes, stickers and all sorts.

A good pointer but unfortunately I haven't got access to GT. Sold my Xbox a few years ago.

I'll ask one of my kids to have a go and see if I can do a screen shot.

Good luck with the build. There's a few company's who advertise in the Classic car section of ebay, I actually thought abut hiring a flat bed truck to pick one of my cars up, couple of companies who hire them out, just do a google search.

He is working away from home at the moment so communication is scarce to say the least! He has promised me it is mine , but as we all know until the V5 is in your hand nothing is certain. Got some good quotes for getting it lifted from Portsmouth to Belfast - 400 to 500 quid which I thought was pretty good.

As soon as money has changed hands and the car is here I will be happy!

Fair play, hope you hear back soon.
