    Good bit of detective work there mate.
    I can understand reluctance to answer emails, as serious buyers will call if the message goes unanswered. Selling unusual stuff online without bothering to give any details (especially about the V5's) is an interesting strategy though.

    Having said all that, and assuming there are V5's, if I was looking for a car and had the space I would have a punt on this, if you could sell-on the bits you don't want you could end up with a very cheap car with an intact windscreen if you are lucky.
    Hmmm a lot of ifs in that sentence.

    Shame that Mrs B has ruled it out for you :-)

    They've got 2 Mk1 bonnets (with nostrils) which I'm constantly on the lookout for. Question is, should I have a punt to get a couple of Mk1 bonnets and then sell off the rest, but risk a divorce? ... Difficult one, but 5 days left to reach a decision!!

    If you do make a bid, put me down for a couple of 'Side Pockets' :-)

    If I was in the UK, and had time to make two trips up North I would have a punt, stick them in storage and figure the rest out later. Maybe its lucky I'm not

    The story seems to be at odds with what Phill was told ... but if that chassis is good and (ideally both) the Novas have V5's then they look like good projects.

    I did try to persuade Mrs Bluenova to let me bid, but she's having none of it and told me the divorce lawyer's phone number's on speed dial!!

    I finally got a reply to my ebay query .... same as Phill was told ... "they're my Dad's and here's his mobile number"

    I'm surprised the Novas still don't have any bids (with 1 day to go). Still don't know if they have V5's which is a big consideration re their value.

    It'll be interesting to see whether or not there's a flurry of activity later tomorrow .... ?

    I would say probably not how many people have the space or want 2 cars? I bet if they had listed them separately for £1500 with more info they would both have bids on. A few years back I bought 2 almost new garage doors for £50 individually they where going for more but again how many people want 2.

    I agree with you Dirk, I would have put them up separately.

    Anyway, someone placed a bit about an hour ago for the asking price. I hope it's genuine. Will be interesting to see if there's a scramble towards the end (about 5 past 10 tonight)
