A wealthy investor said to me last week “selling is weekness “. However he’s got money, I’ve not!
So do we listen to him?
Maybe I should buy your project?

Life consists of making choices :roll:
BUT if you don't need the pounds from
your Sprint, leave it alone for those 3 years.

Sell me the moke and buy his Tricket Sprint. (I'm skint, otherwise it'd be a grand plan!)

:D

But in answer to the original question, If you have a Tricket modified shell and it's a FINANCIAL decision, I'd say keep it if you can, as longer term it's going to carry a premium over many other minis, but....... it's only a car, and if other priorities in life need the funds, sell it to build something that gives you the returns to buy another one down the line.

We all have hard decisions to make in life sometimes, but unless you really, really need to raise as much money as you can. Selling a 1/2 finished Trickett Sprint is probably a poor financial decision.

As a 1/2 (or less) finished project, it's value is comparative low, certainly when compared to a completed car, even allowing for the costs of completing it. Add to this, the fact that a genuine Tricket Sprint will always command a certain premium because of what it is & without putting too finer point on it, Nev is 80 now & he ain't going to be doing them for ever.

The decision is of course yours to make, but maybe you ask questions like that on a forum to get told what you really want to hear ;)

Cheers all

Some very fine points made here , and mark yours is probably the most justified case in me keeping it for now.

Thanks to you all for your comments
