Hi

Thanks for the advice and offers of help everyone, I think a Gogo is quite a good idea as well, there is one localy that I have been trying to buy on and off for a couple of years, so I may go and push a bit harder on that one.

I am glad you got the Willam going, it certainly looked like it needed a bit of work, but at least with the older metal cars ther is something solid to work back to when you make up the patches,

Anybody with a surplus car going, let me know.

Jean

John, If you want a Goggo get in touch with Maurice Rogers of the Goggo section of our Register he should get to hear of one looking for a new home.  Jean

Hi jean

Have been to look at a Gogo today, just waiting to see if the owner is ready to sell.

All the best

Hi John
         Is the one you are looking at complete and running - preferably with an mot - I'v always bought my collection of Goggo's running or at the very least complete. There are a lot of cars out there which need major work doing on them - I live in London and have a lot of experience of these cars, rebuilt 2 of them and at the momont rebilding my dart which has cost me to date almost £6000 that's  getting all of the parts I need before the rebuild starts. If you like I could look at your car ( if its not complete and running) and advise you what it would cost.
     I had a gent ring me up las week and he said he needed a new body for his car because his was rusty - I gave him Uwe address in Germany and said that he could get parts but not a complete body!!! - I just wondered whethes you had looked at his car.
   There are cars available in Germany with a TUV (MOT) but be prepared to pay for them - My goggo coupe shown at the last open day is one of those - and it cost me with the transport about £4,500. I hired a van for the weekend to get it home - it was on the outskirts of Hamburg.
  Just to give you an idea of the care available

Hi

The Goggos do sound quite good, as at least you can get some parts from Germany, new or S/H.

I love the Dart, is yours going to have any wet weather gear?

I've got an original dart - this car looks like a copy to me produced by Andy Carter - it has the wrong engine, seats , back lights, wrong moulding round the side - Mine will be as original as possible, bearing in mind that there are only 70 left in the world.

 I was under the impression that they only made 20 ?  oohhps, just realised I was reading about the Buckle 2.5 not the Dart!

Iteresting how many different quotes you can find

All 4 of th these Australian sites say 700 made, they may have lifted the info from each other, but it's more likely Mike just missed a 0
