Noticed that JD have fitted raised letter type numberplates on each car .. can i ask is this feature now an essential to have on all restored cars?
If this can be proven .. I will rip off my "stick on,s" & fit Raise Letter Number Plates and increase my cars value?

Also that 970S at the Silverstone Auction last weekend did not sell .. but you can still buy it @ £47K.

Quite the opposite, if they know it hasn't got its original shell they won't buy it.

That has been for sale for over a year at around the same price as the 'Buy It Now'. The top money cars seem to be either pretty much bog standard or FIA race spec.

I'd be scared to ask for a price. They do look good but probably too good to use so just investor cars I think.

Whoa, the two Minis shown are exceptional. Is there a link to the 13 already sold - I can't seem to find one?

We had a decent look at the grey 970 last week during the auction, and while my eyes may have been a bit hazed from all the bubbly they were plying us with, the alcohol could disguise how bad the doors and bootlid fitted.
Some of the gaps round the doors were big enough to put your hand in, and I don't mean the un-restored look where the bottom of the door can bow out, I mean the doors just didn't fit the apertures.

Nice looking cars though :)
