Someone has said that I am a nefarious VW Split Screen Van trader :O)

Don't disrupt threads on the main boards - get it all out of your system here. Think of it as 'playtime'.

...yet another who can vouch for Miles, having bought from him previously (and sadly ran out of money at the wrong time when he was selling an HWE rack for a good price). Pretty sure I've sold to him too.

I remember the original thread with the usual shiney bus for sale...every cliche under the sun, no cliche left unturned....and a bucket load of petulance...

However,I did have sneaking admiration for one point (which was unfortunately nothing *whatsoever* to do with Miles....)

...I *can* think of two or three sellers on here who are more or less professional traders, pretend not to be, and maintain a presence(or multiple presences) on here precisely just so they can appear bona fide...and are as cynical and untrustworthy as they come (however much banter or 'mateyness' in the scene they appear to have). And they use the so-say good will and 'clubbiness' of this place entirely for the wrong reasons....to appear legit and make money, often out of people that don'tknow any better. You know the sort...all the mates chiming in with 'this bus is a steal...so cool...don;t let this one go...how could it not sell' etc etc.

So yes, that bit was justified. But sadly, it was as far from Miles as you can get and just unfortunate really. If you're going to
target someone, or go scatter-gun tastic, at least get the right person/people...

Ron, you have PM :)

I've been a very naughty Miles, and not been in touch.
