If we are both right and reading a article in a classic car magazine a few years ago about why cars in the 70s ,80s have gone up over the years , they talked about the last air-cooled Porsche what was 1997 a 911 of topping over the 100k mark if the trend in classic cars carry on , as I only know this as my friend has one and we did laugh back then saying who would pay that but there are not many left and they are now worth over £100 k , also the jenson intercepter going for then 6-10k then and some are hitting over the 100k mark now . As we all know a ford sierra made over 100k at the silverstone aution this year ,So the question is how much will these cars be worth in 10 years time .
Should have a poll for all of us , so in 10 years time we can see who was right . Also I will still be working on that engine bay to get it up to Nicks standard .

So looking on https://www.howmanyleft.co.uk/?page=1&q=Ford+capri and taking in account some on sorn or in a garage . There are only about 2500 capris left in the uk as a guess . So in ten years times there may be less cars left what will only put the price of these cars up in price .

So back to the mats there are only 2500 customer who would be interested in them , I know I may have upset the gent who has the posting for the mats but when a member put the really brand new grey drivers seat on e bay this year we all went how much did that go for ( £900 if I remember )

I have so much security on my car Iam thinking I might need some more to be safe ( o c d kicking in )

Hello again.

Well, plenty of "watchers" but no takers and I'm not the type of guy to sit on something for months....So they will appear again this evening at 19:11 hrs under item number 253155133674. They have a 99p start, a Buy It Now £100 cheaper than my original listing and no reserve. I will not bolster the bids or remove them early, this auction will sell them and I have set it up so that 10% or the proceeds go directly to Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Well, get after them then - good luck and all the best! :ebay:
I used to have a natty little signature here but it's gone now on account of Photobucket being a shower of shit. True story.

Hi,'
I think that an Ebay auction with a low start price is the best way to acheive a high selling price. Once the buyers latch on to it, there will be a bidding frenzy for these mats. In fact, there appears to be a bid on them already...... :whistle:

Good on 280 for donating a portion of the sale price to a very worthwhile cause.

Getting back to the original posting- the set of rubber mats I ordered from Mark Dawson 2 days ago just arrived and are now in the car. :)

As others have said Im mighty impressed. I hadn't expected a lot for £ 20 frankly but these have exceeded expectations ; heavy rubber mats with a woven back + they look good. Mark can be reached on 07707570414.

A great recommendation on this thread. Think I will treat myself to a set of these mats.

I think that you will be pleased with them Nick. Good quality and really quick delivery. Very nice bloke too.

He has hundreds of templates stored, and at the prices he charges it's cheaper to get the actual bespoke sized mats for a car than those universal ones. And two options - carpet and rubber. Both look great but I've always preferred rubber mats in cars.
