They look slabby and dumpy, plus the boot opening is useless - it's a pointless saloon for people too backwards to buy a hatchback. Definite future shite.

Cheers for that, I quite fancy one mainly becasue the boot's bigger than the hatchback's - if the hatchback was as long as the saloon, I'd prefer that.

Sorry I didn't mean it like that, I quite like saloons when they look like a saloon. I think the 306 Sedan for example is a great thing - but the Cordoba looks like it should have a hatchback, and its silly boot opening proves that.

Ugly?! It's got a big red strip that goes all the way along the back, how can it be ugly? Honestly.

It wasnt meant in a derogatory manner! Anyway the red strip had nothing to do with my statement, it's not the actual back end I find ugly, just bulbousness of the last 1/3 which is more apparent from that angle. Siimilar to what Milford's going on about, but I like the 3 door Cordobas.

and google images confirms you to be correct. Interestingly Pietro Frua, who did that roller, was a big influence on Giovanni Michelotti. I really want that Roller now.

£3.5k sounds a bit steep, especially as the roof is looking very tatty round the edges.

This is pretty shite. Bashed up. Non-intercooled six pot smoke belching lorry engine mated to a slushbox, plus it's a saloon. I'd love it, but I don't think I'd be happy paying more than the opening bid.

Hey I know this car - it's one of three 740/760s that live round my way. I used to see it parked every day outside a house in Old Woking very close to where I live. One of those cars where I had thoughts of being a "good samaritan shiter" and sourcing a front wing from an autojumble and leaving it outside their door in a cardboard box. It was obviously in regular use, but recently I saw a "for sale sign" on it, then it vanished and was replaced with something else. So the guy who bought it has stuck it straight on ebay.... :roll:

That'll be a sorry old thing to drive - those gearboxes won't suit that engine I'm sure. 50-70 time will be measured in years.

BTW, did you see that Fuego GTS auto made £2.5k? Wow.

Edit: Somebody on the XJ40 forum has expressed interest in this for the wheels - I hope he buys it - if so, a report (hopefully with a sound recording) will be posted.

If he bought it for the wheels then I reckon someone with an old Land Rover might take the engine off his hands.

You know, the idea of it is quite appealing to me. It's not like you want to go fast in a ropey old Jag anyway. I'm sure the Nissan TD would benefit from some wee tweaks to the turbo, fuel pump and intercooler to make it a bit nippier.

£3.5k sounds a bit steep, especially as the roof is looking very tatty round the edges.

Their prices are often steep as as far as I am aware it's essentially a 'collection' of cars - I think the owner just puts a high-ish price on most things and if he gets it fair enough, but he doesnt need it per-se.

Another tatty-but-nonetheless-quite-cool old commercial. If this was a 7.5-tonner I'd be all over it. Alas it's bigger than that and I don't have an HGV license.
