If this does reach it's reserve that would be nice. But if it doesn't I shall keep it and take it to Bromley Pagent

Oh, he's not that bad, at least he doesn't threaten to take it round the oval if it doesn't make the reserve :wink:

"Stored in a heated garage" must be as much of a cliché as "never smoked in"... :roll: :roll: I must be the only car owner in Western Europe not to have a nice heated garage like every other fugger flogging a shitter on the bay.

Can't see much wrong with it to be honest!Sounds like most of the question are being asked by cretins though - I truly hope the guy asking has it won any concours awards is joking.

NOTE: Slightly unusual phrasing of English AND car was taken straight to a heated garage...then to a LOCKUPI don't know how your prices go on cars like that , but to me it seems OK if the car is perfect.The questions were a bit cretinous :o

Yep, some of the questions were a bit daft, but as my mother used to say "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all".The mad old bat.

What's "maticulasly maintained" - he's been lozzing silicone sealant everywhere to keep the leaks out?I reckon some of the questions were a bit OTT but the guy seems to model himself on "Mr Angry" from the Steve Wright Afternoon Show (late 80's Radio 1 period).I'd take a car that's been kept in a draughty garage with a dehumidifier over one in a heated garage every time.

Probably just means that his gas boiler is in the garage - or there's a light bulb in there or something.

Good price for a good car, the era of mega cheap 70s BL products really is coming to an end. Had that been a TC you could have added another grand to that price easy.

The bloke seems quite fair to me, I quite like his attitude. Although he's obviously aiming for the same amount of wedge as good R20s/30s are going for at the moment! Is this the way all old cars are going to go whether they were traditionally sought after or not?

I would think a good, low mileage, original example of more or less any car will go for a decent amount irrespective of what it is.The more popular and sporting derivatives will go for big money (if you had a mint 3k miles RS Escort you could easily retire and buy an island at the moment) but yeh, the era of dirt cheap BL stuff is definately coming to a close.

He didn't reply top my question regarding ground clearance - I wanted to make a rockery out of it.The guy is clearly a wanker who thinks he has something special. No mate, you have a fine example of a car that was shit 30 years ago. It's still a badly made, dog slow understeering turd that rides like a bullock dray.
