    Thanks again Jeff, that's all I seem to be saying. You have given great advice and help over my 3 years of ownership and really appreciate this. Will continue to use and enjoy the car for as long as possible.
    again, no disrespect to Maestro384, but ,just from a personal interest, but would love to know the 505 number of his latest acquisition and see some pics. Would really like to know it's history..
    But, none the less, when I advertised the car, didn't realise what nastiness it was gonna unleash.
    that was not my intention.
    sorry Keith for going on again,

    Maybe an opportunity missed but it's your car so if you don't want to sell it now that's up to you. Enjoy the shows and driving it.

    Thanks Jeff.
    Was never in a great hurry to sell the MG but thought i would put in onto the Club Site first, just to see what sort of interest it attracted, as members are, afterall, enthusiasts. Was hoping to give our members the opportunity to buy what is now, a pristine car, especially after what i have spent on it in the last 6 months. I will never get back what i have spent on the car, even at the price asked, but if someone did by this car (would have been open to reasonable offers) they would have not had to touch body or mechanics for at least the next 5 years or so.. I have no wish to offend your mate Keith or Maestro384, but i know what i saw at my mates body/mechanical restoration, and i feel their comments were totaly unjustified, after all, i have had the car 3 years, and a lot can happen in 3 years.
    It is due to your mate Keith, and Maestro384,s comments that i decided to withdraw the car. I really dont now want to advertise it elsewhere as dont want a load of time wasters on my case.
    As Keith slagged me off for going on, then, sorry Keith, your reply was not a one line answer.
    As you may know, i am not in the best of health, so will continue to use the car for as long as possible, and ultimately, the car will go to my nephew, who has vowed never to sell it.
    So, Maestro Turbo #384 w2ill never be up for sale again. Sorry folks, an opportunity missed

    Mmm don't understand why you won't sell it now due to various posts, put it on car and classic then you can put pictures up etc as never seen one yet. Keith is a mate of mine who got a dictionary you can swallow for Xmas and is exercising it's power with bigger words than I would use lol.

    Thanks Jeff, agree. this transaction has got totally out of control
    There was no need for the comments, or pics, by Maestro384. Well out of order, and not in keeping with the Club.All i wanted to do was sell a car that some members might be interested in.
    I have recently spent a kings ransom on getting this car back together. The guy who does my body repairs is a personal friend and been sorting my cars for 20 years, so i have complete faith in his diagnosis.
    Would not have spent the amount of money i have recently, on the car, just for the fun of it. I saw the state of the previuos repairs.
    I really dont want to get into Facebook type slagging off, so have decided to keep the car, and all i can say is that some potential buyer has missed an absolute bargain. NEVER gonna appear for sale again, couldnt stand the insults from Maestro384 again..
    This car will now win many prizes this coming year, Covid allowing. :-)

    Right people form your own opinion I bought 384 after it had been stood outside for 15 years and as you can see this is all the holes I found
    I also replaced the rear arches with genuine rover replacement panels with the rover hologram still on them and fitted a ultra rare full rear panel
    zoom into the photos and see before and after I replaced the panel and look for filler and as you can see there isn’t any
    I put 2 brand new wings on the car and 4 used rust free doors on then it went to the paint shop we’re the car was finished
    the gentleman bought the car off of me and drove it 200 miles home in the rain then about a month later made contact with me moaning about the carb playing up and that he was going to break the car for parts
    so that’s the type of person who is now complain about a car that he won’t put photos of on the site

    Filled a skip with pudding? Just a bit melodramatic don't you think , I remember the car being done 3 years ago a possible fine skim yes but, pudding?? na don't think so.. For someone wanting to or not wanting to sell their car you don't half go on, zzz zzz oh and maestro 384 has just bought a black turbo for 3250 and it's in good condition I have seen that as well. So. sell the 384 or not but please stop going on about how rubbish in your opinion the restoration was, as without any pictures of how it looks now means nothing. I'm sure it's just wonderful and I really hope you sell it soon and move on...

    Next too nothing, would love to know it's model number and some pics.
    although when I got this car, it looked amazing but in the 3 years I have owned it, discovered what a shoddy restoration was done previously, my body specialist could have filled a skip with the amount of pudding shoved into the car.
    this has all been removed and a professional restoration now done.
    even at 14 I will never get back what I have had to spend, but it does seem like all anyone wants to do is criticise
    never mind

    Thanks Jeff, really appreciate your help.
    I am not desperate to sell the car, which is why I initially put it on the club site, with details of contact if someone genuinely interested. If someone replied would gladly send them details and invite them along for a viewing. As I said, if the car doesn't sell then will leave it to my nephew.
    I am just so disappointed with some of the remarks I have got about the car potential sale.
    thanks again Jeff, you have given me amazing advice in the last 3 years and I am eternally grateful.
    I mean no disrespect to any of our members but seriously suspect that Member Maestro384 is the previous owner of my car. If I am wrong, then sincerely apologise
    I would like to know where he got such an immaculate example of a Turbo for

    the reason it needed so much work was due to the poor quality of the supposed repairs by the previous owner. When my expert started digging, it was a mess, but not anymore.
    I have had what seems like a genuine enquiry about the car, but if it doesn't sell, then I will be withdrawing it, after all, I am not selling it because it is falling apart, or that I need the money.
    It will continue next year to be the star of many shows.
    ? I am trying to help to get your car out there as the forum isn't what it used to be, thats good to know you may have a buyer and hope it goes well. I'm sure once the prospective owner sees and drives it'll sell. They are going up in value, its a good price and glad that the forum worked on this occasion
