Hi Mark and, welcome to the site.

The best places to keep an eye one of the top of my head are:

This site - OTR cars for sale section (OTR Cars for sale (http://www.cobraclub.com/forum/otr-cars-sale/))
carandclassics.co.uk (AC Classic Cars for Sale, AC Classic Cars Wanted. New/Used, UK (http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/cat/3/6/))
sovereign car sales (Sovereign Car Sales: AC Cobras for sale (http://www.sovereigncarsales.co.uk/Cobras.aspx))
Total head turners (Total Headturners | Cars for sale listing (http://www.totalheadturners.com/carsforsale.php?type=Kit))
Pistonhead classified (Used Kit Cars cars for sale with PistonHeads (http://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/kit-cars))

probably the worst time to buy now as prices go up when the nice weather comes out, best time from a price points tends to be winter period.

A few things to look for are V5 registration correct, nothing saying ford, or jaguar etc.
worth seeing if a local forumite is available to go with you to few anything you fancy - I did the same when we got ours, and i've not yet forgiven him - lol :D, i've been hooked ever since

Good luck, and don't forget to post on here if you see something and need to ask some questions.

That's odd, wonder why it popped up in my new threads ?!

For £17k; almost new Sumo, or few year old AK I'd guess

Hi Mark - did you find a car? I have mine up for sale and have just posted in the general board as I'm having trouble selling it, mainly due to location as I'm in Glasgow and most buyers are unwilling to travel. I've reduced the price of the car and it might be in your budget - car is immaculate and good to go!
