Twenty five thousand euros and it isn't even complete?  What are these people drinking?

I posted a piccy of this ages ago, took a few more today. It's been there since about 1990 and apart from the caress of nature has remained intact.

Having lived in Portugal he/she has probably been on the Medronho which is distilled in the mountains from a berry that as far as I know only grows there. It has a slightly hallucinatory effect and having imbibed some I can attest to it.

With 3 days left, this could easily double or triple in price.  Or, given the time of year, it could equally stagnate.  Either way, I don't have the cash, so it doesn't matter, but oh, what a saddening thing to look at inside.  And even outside, come to that.  I don't want a camper.  I especially don't want a coachbuilt.  I expressly don't want a stripped-out, leaky coachbuilt.  Naturally my soft heart leaps into action, shouting "SAVE IT!!!!!"at maximum volume.

Not going to happen.

It has an MOT, so what are you waiting for? :-)

 

Good bits:
  • Drives (been standing for 6 months)
  • Very low mileage, 75550
  • MOT valid Until March 2018
  • Been converted to take LPG
  • Bursting with character
  • Chassis showed very little sign of rusting (considering age) two years ago when I replaced the rear half of the floor, but I stripped it back to bare metal and painted it with Hammerrite stone chip paint while I had good access

Get thee away from me, temptress!

 

I can't spend the money; it's at the wrong end of the country; it's blatantly a money pit equal to my recent Rover 213; I've got nowhere to put it.  I'd be found in a ditch, in pieces.....

It's only Croydon - not quite southern Cornwall! The MOT history looks pretty good on it and it's stripped out inside, so easy enough to see where the leaks are...

 

You'd have an instant Shitefest campervan there, all ready to go...

 

Not that I'd want any fellow-owner of a Cadillac to be found in a ditch, in pieces or otherwise! :-)

Croydon is still 300 miles from me!

 

If I had cash to spend, and a building I could put it in while I sorted out the corners.... but I haven't, and I haven't, and it's still 300 miles away.  This is not the van I'm looking for... (/Obi-Wan)
