    Overall it's rather a lot of media interest, probably the unusual subject has piqued their interest.

    The Gardai have appealed for people, particularly in the elderly community, to get in contact if they believe they were deceived or ripped off in the sale of a vintage or classic car.
    That implies that the Gardai found more cars than were the initial subject of their investigation, maybe much more.
    May be worth raising this with any older classic car owners you know, the more complaints the more likely the offenders do real time.

    Some lad called me earlier in the year offering me 10 grand for my 924. After a bit of questioning it became clear he didn't really know much about the car, the model, or even seem to care.

    Was obviously some sort of scam... wonder if that's the kind of thing they were doing to elderly owners of classics.

    A few more ratings for Peter Casey when he hits the airwaves.
