Doors? You actually had doors -on the vehicle- when you bought it?
Having been seduced into buying a disassembled E-type with no floors,
trunk or sills, not to mention working doors, I am duly impressed :-)
Of course everyone knows you get the best deals when you're willing to
walk away. I talked the PO of my TR8 down $1k by waiting a week after
looking at it. I will grant that it was a *very* difficult week.
I still can't believe he sold it.
