Yeah, that makes sense! I just didn't see it coming after the amount of effort and time you've put into it.

Glad to hear you're getting good interest in it. What sort of 911 are you after?

I can see the reasoning to separate yourself from it but would you not be tempted to at least keep it for a while to get some enjoyment out of it?

Beautiful creation though, I'm sure there is plenty of interest in it. Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

Thanks folks, i'll not be giving it away! if it doesn't add up its going no where!

Bigger garage being built soon, so it could be put into the back of the garage until I build some more enthusiasm :grinning:

But now, my time needs to be spent with the family :grinning:

Can't believe you would sell it after all that work. But I guess if you didn't totally all in love with driving it then its no harm if its for the right money.

My problem is that I get too attached, after driving my S30 with the RB in it I knew I couldn't sell it, plus I couldn see it being worth it after all the work and obsessive planning put into it.

Surely you've put more than a 911's worth into it by now?

Needs must and all that, if you don't want it any more then pass it on. Always did wonder if you could realistically run both this and the Midget as race cars, but you could keep this as a fun car if you wanted to.

Right time to sell, just a matter of finding the right buyer. Maybe put it up on one of the car auction sites?

Understand why but sad to see it up for sale after the amount of time and effort you've put into it. Easily one of the best builds on the forum.
Hopefully you get to enjoy it for a bit before it sells.

Good to see I'm not the only one having issues getting the tax class updated. I've been in the post office 3 times with my V5 trying to get it changed to historic. Each time they scan it and it errors on them.
Phoned the DVLA last night and they say all looks fine to them and can't see any reason that it shouldn't have gone through.
They told me to fill in the new tax class on the tax book as 'Historic', sign it and send it off with the insurance certificate and V112.

The only thing I can think of that might be making it fail is it has been without MOT for 2 years but the way it is worded it appears it requires either a valid mot OR V112.
Sent it all off today so the wait has started.

Just to update on this for anyone in the same boat. New V5C arrived in the post today with the taxation class updated to historic and a full years tax. Result!
