MY mistake gentlemen, there was a car called Bond years ago, it had a motorbike type engine and a dynastart and a kick start. These were small handmade cars in the UK. Volvo marine diesels had a dynastart I believe?

You are forgiven but don't let it happen more than another million or o times  its easy to get things mixed up and the older I get the easier it is.

Now that it is winding down I will post what happened when I tried to get in on this at the start. I contacted the contact in England and we talked back and forth and I decided to get in so I asked about payment  and was told I could do it one of several   ways I know some one who lives there so had them set it up to meet the man sent them the money to pay him and inspect the unit they went to  the  address no one there after a few tries to find him they gave up we decided it was a scam they sent my money back looking back was for the best. It cost me to transfer the money but a lot less than if I had just sent the money like he wonted. I thought maybe  my people had just missed making contact. Thomas
