an ebay vehicle... thoughts/help

can anyone suggest and approach to getting this vehicle inspected?
i've heard some pretty bad things about simmonites so i want a second opinion about the vehicle.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-ROVER...ht_1440wt_1180

i would like to have this vehicle inspected by a mechanic or a trusted contact. does anyone know of anyone in the north of england that could do this for me. i'm willing to pay them for their time. simmonites is 39 miles outside of manchester....

also any opinions or thoughts on this vehicle? thanks

Just FYI, there's really no way someone could give you a useful opinion on that truck from those photos. Photos from 10-20 feet while it's raining says nothing.

If you've heard bad things about Simmonites, do you think your experience will be better?

Jesus...save yourself $5k + import shipping costs and deal with this (albeit RHD) beauty:

I'm sure someone on the list from Denver could look at it. Use the $7-9k you saved to do LHD convert if you feel the need.
