    My new purchase

    Recently bought this for the tiny sum of £100




    No mot, broken aerial, smashed rear offside quaterlight, one boot strut (rusty) No brakes, wet inside from rain. Rust bubbles on the rear arches and a few scratches here and there.

    There was also a few bits missing here and there like sill plates and a few pipes from the engine but getting there slowly. Only got the brakes to sort and the window to put in, then off for mot.

    Second one of these I've had and makes a nice weekend car.

    Not alot of these about now and its a late model, one of the last off the line. Most things are cosmetic and have been sorted already so just depends on the outcome of the MOT. The plate is worth quite a few quid so if needs be it can be sold to recoupe the cost of any major work.

    Looks a tidy profit. Has this one got four wheel steering? Can't imagine what that would be like.
