There is a Visa Cabriolet in trouble in Edinburgh and I would like to see it saved.
Can somebody please get it off the street and store it off road while a long term owner is found. If a new owner cannot be found in a reasonable time I will come to Edinburgh and collect it.
With great sadness, we must now part with ore red '85 cabriolet, as we are unable to get it through an MOT due to severe rust. We have had so much fun over the years, and this is breaking our hearts.
Anyway, it failed the MOT on front wheel bearings, brake pipes and extensively rusty sills. The MOT garage wouldn't do the welding, and neither would 2 others. So it has to go.
Mechanically, it is fine. It has always been reliable, and was last driven about half an hour ago. We also have (brand new and unused) a starter, alternator and clutch cable. It has four original alloy road wheels, and a steel spare. The 4.50x13 tyres are good. It is a bit tatty, including the hood, and has a dent on the front passenger door, but there is actually no outward sign of rust. You have to get under it to see that.
It is sitting in the street in Edinburgh, still taxed and insured, but with no MOT it is now not legal and needs to go as soon as possible
If anyone can use it, or is feeling like a brave restoration, please come and get it. If you want to give us something for it, that is fine, but its condition means it has little value
I can't believe that we have gone from using it (literally) every day to this in such a short time, Boooooo hoooo
Anyway, I am not sure how to post contact details here. I presume that phone numbers and email addresses are not permitted, but I will monitor this forum for replies. It is not advertised anywhere else
