Looking for a cheapish classic to pootle around in, so been keeping an eye on eBay.

An MGB GT for sale in Sunderland 10 mins walk from the office £2,000[^]. So I saunter over. The place is closed, so I phone him, he says he thinks he's sold it.

A couple of hours later, he's phoned back. He has sold it, to a classic car dealership who know what they are buying. They're advertising it for £500 more[^]. Worse, he puts me through to the new buyers who want to sell it to me.

Third time it's happened in the last month, arrange to take a look and the car has gone.
