1982 baby names

Special Offer for a quick sale on behalf of a friend.

The well-known Tamworth Tangerine which is a limited edition Californian.

Resprayed (yesterday) in an acceptable colour (unfortunately the passenger, who loves sitting in it, also got lightly sprayed).

The reason for selling is that sadly the under coat of orange is starting to show through and the owner wants to buy a properly yellow buggy and sell this cheaply to someone who can do a better spray job.

Engine capable of reaching IBW 2019….and back to the UK.

Awards: Noisiest in show at Ragley Hall Classic Cars 2018. Sale includes a framed signed photograph of the owner receiving the award.

Surf board not included.

£5,000 but open to offers as must be sold by noon 1st April.
Hugh

Withdrawn due to time wasters.

May re-spray it orange to appeal again to hoi polloi.

Its no laughing matter Dave.

The outbreak of orange buggys in our community has become like an embarrassing rash that risks becoming an epidemic because there was not swift enough 'medical' intervention...

I can only spray so many yellow, so fast.

A few more people willing to spray some blue, black, red or even green would help.

Gordon send them via Herefordshire on their home run as I have a few cans of yellow spray left.

There is yellow flake. 



But it is 3x as expensive as the normal stuff :o

Strangely no-ones ordered in that colour.

There was someone interested in a Canary Yellow buggy earlier on in the year, but they've disappeared.

It may be my iPad screen but that yellow seems to have green contamination.

You were determined to get the words GREEN and CONTAMINATION in the same sentence there weren`t you  ::)

‘Shimmer’ is not the word. Dave has it right with ‘contamination’.

If you really want a green buggy - it takes all sorts - then best be honest and just have 100% green mess in the paint. If I ordered a yellow buggy I’d feel mightily conned to find anything but pure lovely yellow as the ingredient pigments or metal flakes.

I am delighted the Moderators on here have demonstrated their open mindedness by letting this post exist!
