Just a little heads up, I have decided to sell this as I just haven't the time to give it the attention it deserves, therefore it's gone up for sale on Ebay,

If you know of anyone looking for an early Marcos restoration project could you let them know.

Thanks,
Neil.

Has the wife finally grown tired of the 'water feature' in the garden?

That could be part of it

There is also a Nissan Micra powered Clubman Estate that needs a bit of time and money thrown at it.

Tom won? What'd you do for shipping, Tom?

Unrelated, I'm going to be up in the Seattle area the weekend after July 4th...not sure what my schedule is, but any interest in grabbing a drink or lunch if the schedule allows? Tentative plan is to stay in portland on the 4th night, and meeting up with friends in Seattle Friday late afternoon. Should be in Sea all weekend, then driving back to CA the following week.

Hey Brian,
No, not me.  I just couldn't justify the shipping cost.  Smart money (ha!) dictates looking for a running car for RO/RO.  That and I may have located another project down your way..not a MM, but A series powered.

Ah, fair enough. As a side thing, when I checked with Phoenix, a "RO/RO" doesn't need to be "running". It just needs to be a rolling chassis, and have working steering and a handbrake. If I were doing mine again, I probably would have at least quoted paying the garage to get it to that point versus crating.

Unfortunately, US Customs does not like you to be shipping parts packed inside a Ro/Ro anymore.  Years ago there was no problem with the practice, but now they are real picky about what is inside a Ro/Ro car.

The Marcos was collected this morning and is now on it's way back to the UK.

I told the new owner about the Club/Forum and hopefully he will join here soon. The plans are to build it into a 66 replica historic racer
