Whisper has a point. Is he the same guy who trys to sell you a engine. But he has no time for you to collect and he will send it free of charge to wherever you want.

Can't remember his name. Anyone?

No, he said you can collect, but we have palleted some. He is charging an additional charge of 45.

He just seems very, very genuine. Too genuine to be fake...
