Just turn up and pay to either sell or buy.

As a buyer you just turn up, pay a small admission fee and that's it. I have never had a stall there so I font know how much they charge to sell.
I try to get there as early as possible.

Just found the website.. looks like Iíll need to leave Home about 4am to make the opening time, at least the roads should be quiet that time...

If there is any interest I could bring the W2, still looking for another engine to replace it.

As buyers we tend to aim for nineish and there are often sellers still rolling in, so not everyone gets there at the crack of dawn.

PS, you don't want basket case Douglas do you Phill? Probably a bit chunky.

That's the plan - doesn't always work though!

Or maybe a bit later now you've fitted the new carb?

I like being on the road early so itís no bother, itís the only way to get round the M25..

Can you send me a pic of the Douglas please?

Phill.
