    Lawyers are paid worriers. So we try to anticipate what might go wrong, not just what is most likely to go wrong. So I might substitute: "all reasonable offers will be considered." Or some such, to...

    Sounds like a perfect match (and excellent price!) for someone ordering a roller Caterham or Birkin. The dry sump and Mazda 6 sp are perfect matches for Caterhams. Does the 11.3:1 compression ratio...

    I love that the seller of the "steam roller" V-8 special explains the sale by saying: "downsizing parents." The less we know about that the better:).

    With only 700 miles in 5 years, it doesn't look to have been on the road much. Nice car, decent BIN price, assuming it was well constructed. Hillbank didn't have the best reputation.
