Hi all,
New to the forum but not new to Holbay's. Many years ago myself and a mate built a Lotus 7 replica out of a combination of Humber Sceptre and Holbay Hunter.....quite the little beast.
So back to today and I am finally able to take a serious look for the ultimate car, a Rapier H120.
Got the money burning a hole in my pocket so want to make sure it goes to the right place. Actually just missed a car today, was on the phone to the seller as the new buyer drove away :(
So over to you guys, what's out there folks?

No, thanks for the thought but Bristol is just too far away. Will keep going, there's got to be one out there for me despite the fact that the household is now +1 mini clubman estate.....
First time I've driven a mini since my driving lessons today and within seconds bought back all the reasons I can't stand the silly little things. Still she enjoys it????

I presume no luck with Bernard, Jon?

Hi Ian,
Yes indeed I have. Lovely and great to see another returned to the road but to rich for me and if I'm honest, £10k and then I have to start spending money on it??
If money was no object I'd buy it tomorrow but unfortunately not :(

Need a divorce lawyer?

Best greetings from the Isle of Arran in Scotland.

Oh dear that's not good. You need to find some bad mini reviews quick and convince her it's a bad idea!

Ha was it a rather bright green one from Twickenham? Hope it's as good as it looked in the ad, mind you if you decide it's not for you you know where I am.
