    Re: Stratos at Auction

    I was chatting to Rob Whitehouse in Hoznayo. He said he had had two original cars in the past. This obviously being one of them. Despite owning an 037 these days he said he still hankered after another Stratos and would even consider a replica which I thought was very even minded for someone who had experienced the real thing. And maybe an acknowledgement of how far replicas have come on in the past thirty years?

    70,000,000 JPY = 490,707.96GBP an indication of how far prices have come in the last 30 years, and why the value of our cars maybe greater than we think?

    That, Griff, is precisely the point I've been trying to make in my Rant posts - that, and the fact that others, as John says above, are now considering "replicas" instead of a genuine car. Doesn't mean all replicas are equal, as they're all built to individual specs, but they're all valuable motors now. And to think I sold my Allora for 6K back in '92...boo-hoo, etc.

    As it happens, I'm hoping to make an announcement sometime soon over the whole "recognition of replicas" thing which could well move us even further into acceptance by the mainstream, so keep an eye out for that!

    What's Enigmatic mean?
    Sounds like an automatic transmission where you're never sure what gear you're going to get.

    Enigmatic = when you are all bunged up, they give you a pill in hospital, and then it all comes out, at least that's what I've been telling Norm

    You won't be needing one of those, then, will ya, Griff? :-P

    John, for my own sanity, I'm assuming you're being deliberately obtuse...if you ask what "obtuse" means, my assumption's waaaay out
