And yet another story from the dark side of the moon. Even the most knowledgable get burned sometimes. Sportscar Market magazine had been advertising a classic car rally for quite some time. It was to run a 17 day leg from Hong Kong to Beijing. 50 cars, 20 motorcycles, five-star hotels....all for a mere $17,000. Sportscar Market had traded advertisement for the use of two cars in the rally, but as they got closer to the date things seemed to come apart.

They went to China, very few cars there for the rally, rally organizer claimed much but was delivering little. No cars for the people from Sportscar Market. Everyone was taken for a ride. So, even if you are in the field it can happen. You must check, re-check and re-check
