Legs seem to be working well enough, thanks injection into the spine! Less lardy now too.

 

Anyone got one that they fancy swapping for a now happy again Rover 75? Sadly it is the only form of currency that I have.

 

Anyone?

 

Looks like a roffle is under way at £6 per per ticket.

Pop the Raver up for sale - I reckon you're more likely to snag an MG with cash than a 75 (No offence - I love them).  Also, it widens the net a bit.

Well it was £160 last week!

Seriously though a quick squiz at the bay will help give an approx value. Looks like most around your ones age seem to be between £300 needing work to £800 for a nice one. There are exceptions of course, including a manual v6 in Primrose which the guy wants over £3k for.

If a roffle would £6 per ticket be OTT?

Ha. If anyone had bought it for £160, I’d have publicly shamed them for taking advantage. Glad you got it fixed up. Good luck man.

I think £6 per ticket Roffle would be extremely good value. And like Bornite I would have shamed anyone who got the car at the "possible hgf price"

Is it worth seeing what WBAC would offer first? Might be the same end amount but without the hassle of chasing us lot for payment!
