Interestingly I just ran a DVLA info check on the reg number on that 130, and it shows the vehicle as unlicensed, not been licensed since march 1st 1994, and without an export marker, suggesting it's still in the UK.....but of course the DVLA could be wrong.

Interesting, huh? I guess I'll have to run down next week and see that 130. I would love a 130. I will let you know what I find.

Number is likely a cell phone assigned to Boca Raton.

Florida shop? Bet Customs and Homeland Security will show up wherever and help themselves to more vehicles.

They have a US agent who is a "non practicing atty" named Steve White, noy sure what to read into that oyjer than it means he's not a member of the BAR for some reason. The ad is misleading but that should be no suprise.

Charles Mogford owner of Berkshire has a history in Florida as I learned from Arjuns post a while back.

The phone number is a cell phone and rings to Charles Mogford in the UK.
Makes for some interesting reading to say the least.

Here is a classic BLR thread.

Note the connection between the eBay ad and BLR90

BLR90 is Kieron Sumner who is not an owner, he handles sales.

Sadly, South Florida is a good place for assclowns like these guys and their "non practicing atty,"you can't swing a dead cat down here with out hitting some D-bag like this. Ugh. I wonder what will happen if I ask to see their "shop"?

These guys don't have a shop down here, pretty obvious hey...

I do however www.eastcoastdefender.com and I only advertise my vehicles for sale once they are tagged and titled in the USA. Not like these others who try to trick people into buying vehicles that are still abroad.

Just sayin!
