    Providing its solid underneath etc. then you cant go far wrong. Bear in mind that some metal merchants are giving upto £200 per car depepnding on where you are. Buy it, retro coolness.

    Can't go wrong for 250 quid mate.as above if it all went tits up i'm sure it wouldn't be hard to get most your money back. Why would you only keep for a couple of months? Is this gonna be your main car or a project?

    yeah i'd say go for it mate! Often wish i could run another cheap car alongside my coupe for the very same reasons. Even if it lasts you 6 months then blows up its still cheap motoring...... and fun !
