    You just gotta let them know you're not the average mega rich punter and you expect to pay reasonable labour rates.

    The last owner of my car got bent over backwards because he didn't know any better and for him, negotiating means you're a povo.

    Some of the past invoices I've seen for my car will truly make your eyes water.

    That's weird. Why'd they bother starting it?

    That was fantastic, thanks for posting. The overhead view was amazing, and I'd never noticed the two small NACA ducts forward of the front wheels.

    As for the misfire, I suspect a 512S engine lugging around at 3,000 rpm might have something to do with it.

    Yeah, but the plugs are fouled, and after that run, even more so. I was waiting for the car to warm up so he could at least get it up on the cam, even if not even close to the redline - rich car collectors are such pu55ies.

    Yeah I get that but you'd get my two before the price upgraded one.

    If I was that desperate for a 308 and had no chance of getting a factory RHD, the. yes, I’d get the L/R conversion first.
    But to be honest, you’d be much better off with a factory RHD Mondial or a 308 like you had.

    I think if someone had to stretch to afford those, they would find the cost of upkeep... problematic

    I don't particularly like either as well, but forced to make a choice between the two I'd probably go with the original LHD. At least it's original and not butchered up. Interior looks nicer than the converted car as well.

    Getting expensive these old girls eh?

    A very well sorted 360 could be a good "investment" at the right price right now. If I were a speculator (which I'm not), that's where I'd be putting my money.
