    Welcome to the site Ian.
  4. Midlands to wales

    It was mentioned that Rob was sorting english end, no idea of his surname or if hes on here? Might be a bit cheeky but what about messaging ross to see if it ever went any further than just an offer of taking over? At the end bit when they announced stepping back there wasnt any takers for the welsh end. I dont know if aled is on here, think he is, no idea of his name though? , message him too? If he isnt i think hes part of the north wales classic ford snowdonia tour? Failing that too, would imagine ross would have a way of contacting him?

  7. Hello

    Hello all, Ian here. I have been browsing your site for some time now, in fact since I saw a car sticker whilst watching wheeler dealers, and thought it's about time I joined. It's a fantastic site with a great bunch of members who all seem to know everything there is to know about OSF's. My first car was bought for me by my Dad who didn't want me to ride the motorbike I had, it was a 'bogey' green mk2 escort 1.1 popular plus. It lasted 7 days before I wrote it and a lada off! What was quite amusing, only looking back not at the time, was I didn't know who's car it was as it was parked up. I went to the police station to report it later that day and had to wait behind a couple reporting an accident. I was rather embarrassed to listen to them describing my accident! I had to interrupt to tell them it was me!! Anyway, that then led to another 3 mk2's. My last one ended up with a 1660 xflow engine which I took to santa pod recording a 1/4 mile time of 16.555. I still have the slip at home and the engine but no mk2. I passed my driving test in 93 at 18 so mk1 and 2's where easy and cheap to come by, if i only knew then. . . . Hitting the nostalgia route I am actively looking for a resto project at the moment so I will keep you posted when I find one. I will also find a picture of my mk2 on the strip at santa pod racing my friend in an Opel Manta, who I beat. Thanks for reading, if you got through it all!

  23. V5 and VIN SALES

    There is a fraud squad at the dvla, but no info on how to contact. with not having a reg shown though it's not as you can ring the dvla a say this +++++++ documents are for sale, also not having the sellers or purchasers info might prove tricky. Could always steer them in the direction of these adverts.
  24. V5 and VIN SALES

    In Australia we have similar issues with vehicle identity problems. Appears the Australian Federal Court simply defends the seller and says "buyer beware", and indirectly says it is all too hard. So now precedence has been set for all future court cases. Article below is copied and pasted from webpage: Ford Falcon GTHO turns out to be a fake The sale of a classic car which turned out to be a fake has left a man $110,000 out of pocket and facing legal bills for failed court appeals. Caveat emptor - buyer beware - should be the first principle of anyone buying a second hand car. But a classic car mix up in regional Victoria that's left a man $110,000 out of pocket and facing legal bills for failed court appeals seems to have shot that timeless warning full of holes. Glen Sell from Wodonga in regional Victoria had no reason to doubt the vehicle he had owned for 30 years was an original Ford 1970 XW GTHO Falcon - one of the rarest and most valuable vintage Fords on the market. The car had a letter from Ford confirming its identity, which had been based on its Vehicle Identification Number. An inspection by a Melbourne-based car expert as part of Mr Sell's divorce proceedings found the car to be genuine and he listed the vehicle for sale on Gumtree in August of 2013. And when Lyle Walker travelled to Wodonga to inspect the vehicle later that month, it was in such good nick that he looked it over for about 30 minutes before agreeing to buy the car for $135,000. This is where the story gets tricky... While Mr Walker had checked over the documents from Ford and examined the Vehicle Identification Number plates, he did not ask to see a report from the car expert who found it to be a genuine GTHO. Instead, he planned to get a friend to come down to Wodonga to view it, but never did, and when he finally took possession of the vehicle after making payments for 12 months, he got an inspection with plans to restore it. The person who conducted the inspection on the vehicle immediately found about 20 things that were not right with the car. The 'Ford 1970 XW GTHO Falcon' was found to instead be a Ford Falcon model worth only $25,000, and Mr Walker immediately sought a refund, which the seller declined. He took legal action a bid to recoup his losses, but Federal Court judge Robert Brom last week dismissed Mr Walker's second bid to recover the $110,000 lost in the deal. "It apparently was not in doubt that both parties were innocent victims of a fraud perpetrated by someone on Mr Sell when he bought the car some 30 years ago from a Mr Paul Ward," he said. "It is not possible to say who was responsible for that fraud." A key question in the hearings was whether the car was sold based on the description or by Mr Walker's inspection of the car. The court heard the seller had only given his belief the car was genuine, but had based that on the expertise of others. A judge had earlier found Mr Walker had also relied on his own inspection of the car before deciding to purchase it and hadn't relied on anything said or written by Mr Sell. Mr Walker has also been left with a bill of $14,162 for Mr Sell's legal costs.
