This East Yorkshire colour scheme introduces a special page for all your requirements for assistance, information, or anything else that our readers may be able to provide. Buy, sell, ask, offer, request - anything you like in connection with our Classic Buses theme.

Email your ad to me here. It's all free. Adverts normally stay up for about 3-4 months, unless the advertiser asks to remove it sooner.

In order to avoid folk getting spam from having their email addresses published on this page, I add a space after the '@' symbol. So becomes john@ You will have to remove the space yourself before emailing the advertiser. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it will hopefully save folk getting their addresses picked up by nasty robots, and their mailboxes filled with adverts for strange things.....

*************  !!!!!! BEWARE !!!!!! *************


1. Beware of scam emails offering to send you a cheque for more than the amount you asked for. The buyer then asks for a refund of the excess, and you subsequently discover that the original cheque has bounced.

2. History has proved that ALL inquiries from Nigeria regarding items advertised on this webpage are scams! Ignore them all.

3. Be wary of bad English, second names that look like first names, and "" email addresses.

4. Finally, do not reveal your bank account details over the Internet to people you do not know.

THERE ARE LOTS OF IDIOT SCAMMERS AROUND. Here's the latest list. Please let me know if you get any more.
LOOK OUT - IT'S A (largely Nigerian) JUNGLE OUT THERE ! (By the way, the fact that I'm publishing their email addresses means that they will be picked up by the nasty mining robots and sent lots of spam. Perhaps they'll spam each other!)
