    That's very promising after such a short period of time.

    Good luck to you my friend, I hope you get the money you're asking!

    Some cars have gone crazy over the past couple of years and not just the usual Ferraris and Lambos.

    I sold my JPS Esprit last month for 2.5 times what I bought it for 3 years ago.

    My 22b has only 24k miles on it and the last one sold was a 150k kilometer example for £85k plus 30% import duties. Not selling her but that is many multiples what I paid for her!

    I bought my Elise 11 years ago for £10k, over that time I've spent about £50k on it, and today it's worth £20k.

    I'm not sure I've got the hang of this.

    Could have been worse Dan...could have been worth 5k instead of 20k. Big difference between getting it right & wrong though I agree.

    I'm guessing most of your costs have been direct running costs so fuel/consumables rather than repairs?
