Despite how nice that might be, Thats seems a lot of money for an S4 Stromberg car, well it does to me
If i was in the market for a 40k Elan i would buy this in a heart beat

I believe that Sprint is Paul Lister's. He posts on here time to time as "Verve", I've bought many spares from him over the years & his cars are nothing but amazing! :shock:

I've just checked the ad :
I wonder what purpose is supposed to serve the numerous approximations (if not outright deceiving blurbs) that this sale pitch is stuffed with... deterring real enthusiasts from looking into it so that only gullible newbies would venture to visit such a used car salesman?

Spot on !

The advertising speil is woefully short of what I would consider essential detail allied to which the car was advertised, shown as sold, and subsequently recently reappeared for sale with the same dealer all within the last 2 months.

The Sprint looks very good, especially the historic details such as the wheel colour which highlights a knowledgable seller. Personally, a downside is the sunroof which is very unusual.
