If Dolomites were as valuable as Escorts, I for one, wouldn't be able to afford even a project to restore!
I was going to say the same thing, I wouldn't have three 1300's and two Dolomites (two of the 1300s are usable) if they were £20k each. I also wouldn't be restoring an 1850 and the owner would have his second 1850 if the were that expensive.
I like the fact that the last seven or 8 I've bought have been £FREE-250 and I have been able to save them when no one else wanted them, then some complain because I got them cheap and want money when I've rebuilt the !. ok so they aren't cheap to restore, take a lot of time and some parts especially good quality are difficult to get but they will live on.
