Ouch!

I suspect it is possible that those offering such detailed views of Mr

Blimey, I thought I was argumentative but I've never scrapped over what I

If I were more technically minded I would do the "quotes thing" but the way
it arrives on my email means there is no obvious way to do it.

On the book front perhaps you are lucky enough to...

The retailer decides the actual price of the book, the publisher

The retailer buys the book at retail minus a...

Bristol: The Inside Story

Just a thought, as an author myself I know I can sell my own book direct
to the public, as Christopher is a BOC member is it worth seeing whether he
wants to sell direct?

Hi Richard,

I'd think it pretty unlikely that there are two Swiss registered USAs, so yes, I agree, I think this may well be the same car. I have contacted the owner to find out more...

Another 412 USA!

Hi Andrew,

I would be pretty certain that this is one of the missing "USA" 412s. The brochure for the USA shows two LHD USAs, neither of which appear to be either this car or Peter's so that makes...
