I found mine on PistonHeads and from the initial advert and description I realised it was probably a good one, on speaking on the phone to the owner that became even more obvious.
I fancied one having heard GeffyB cane his round Brooklands Track and having the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end and within 2 weeks had bought one and it has been 100%; previous owner had shelled out £2.5K at Autolusso, Q2, GTA clutch and flywheel, belts etc year before.
I don't tend to fanny around umming and rrring if I feel the car and owner are legit I buy; I did not test drive or look at any seriously beforehand. The pitfalls to me are those prospective purchasers that have to have the Cup or have to have the right colour, interior combination etc they seem at times to end up with a car that requires mechanical and body work, paint and great expense, luckily mine was Vela blue and had a tan interior. If you think the owner is full of bull or the car is a nail....walk.
