He didn't hillclimb it because he was afraid of other cars hitting it? Clearly never seen a hillclimb then!

" MUSEUM QUALITY " ?? ie, an old decrepit relic ? - shame - looks like a decent car - but
registered as a Ginetta ?? Mond boggles at what some people think they can get away with.

The insurance company would love a claim on that. Instant get out.

Goodbye and thank you for the premiums, you're on your own.

You can definitely see the G26 inspiration in the car, but unfortunately only on the V5

It actually looks like a neat installation of the V8 and a well put together car. It would not take a lot to get it through the IVA. If it could be had for £5K - £6K then IVA'd it would be worth it.

Asked the seller a few simple but awkward questions about this 'conversion', like how did this change from live axle to independent and got this reply after the listing had ended. Almost pissed myself laughing

Your response is typical of one class. I'll get to it shortly.
When Henry decided to behead his wives, was that illegal?
Which brings the question, what makwes something legal?
There are 3 types of people. Peasants, royalty and asswipers.
The asswipers are the most insidious as they don't have a spine. If they did they would be the new royalty. So they conive and manipulate their way through life and are the first to put a knife in someones back.
I feel like you fit into this category because of your self-righteous nature. A sign of an inferiority complex.
What is also interesting is you appear to know more about the car than I do. You have no idea about the history but jumped to conclusions. For example you have implied that this car have two wheels. These are called motorcycles. You can look that up and whilst you are at it, look up any legislation that backs your impertinent argument. You obviously have never been involved in competition or you would know, winners study the rules and use them to their advantage.
You might also want to look at Ford GT 40's as there are more than one running around with the same chassis number.
Please avoid my listings if you ever see them, grow a spine and take your foot out of your mouth.

Think hes smoking something

Interesting as I clicked on the sellers history and a year ago he sold a Ginetta G26 Chassis with no running gear etc, he auctioned it with no reserve and it sold for £1. The buyer left negative feed back saying the seller 'arranged a awkward collection time and then pulled out on the day'.

Doesn't take a genius to put it together. He had a road registered G26 that had been stripped of parts, couldn't sell it. He slapped the registration on the Viento and Wahey!

Thats what i think has happened
Read through the response I received above and you really have to wonder if he has some mental problems. Its so weird and doesn't relate to the questions i asked.
Perhaps he sent it to me by mistake as it refers to things I didn't mention
Not sure what the references to Henry 8th, motorcycles and motorsport are about.
Is it time for my medication nurse?

He isnít wrong about more than one car having the same vin number though, I know of 2 Luegoís with matching vin numbers. Is there a way of letting DVLA know of dodgy cars these days?
