Thanks  Christine.   Glad you ended up with good experiences. 
My difficulty is this has come at a rather busy time and has been 
rushed through the next car's arrival [from someone who's care 
and attention I know of, and at an unarguable price ;-)].   I 
have nowhere to keep the old car, so turned to the net as a fast 
and easy try, but have found ebay a bit complex - my simple mind 

Just added a pic and can give it till tomorrow morning, but have 
already arranged for plan B...

Meanwhile I learn from one 'buyer' that his engineer would come 
from Manchester - which sounds a very expesnive option when the 
RAC or AA can do it for about the price of the fare alone!    And 
he has still not given me where he lives!   He's asked for 
details of how to send the money that he'd like me to have before 
the inspection...   A variation on the letter David got.
