It doesn't matter in the slightest to me you are right, however it wouldn't be much of a thread if no one commented on this sort of thing. The point being there are some much more original looking and tidy 1275GTs on ebay at the moment for about £5k less.

But why should it matter to you, commenting on an overpriced car on a thread that was made for commenting on overpriced cars, on a forum about  generally underpriced cars. 🤣

My least favourite ad of 2021 and it's a "meer" £4k. This feels like it was written by estate agents.

Let's start with dealership ad bingo:

Very Hard To Find In this Condition

Un-molested

Supplied By Wayside Vw St Albans To Doctor Jeremy Luke In April 2004 

Built When Cars Did What They Said On The Tin !!!

This Car Is Not Concourse, Nor A Garage Queen

I was just thinking the same.

The whole ‘Dr owned’ thing is a load of bollocks anyway. 

Highly stressful job, long hours…they’d be forgiven for missing services, washing the car etc. What makes Drs any more of a safe bet?

Yeh, a Dr lives two doors away from me, nice bloke, but no common sense at all haha

They came in blue too.

The add says this is a rare colour. Here is maybe the same one. The image below was taken in South Wales. The advert says the car is located in SW too.

 

Vauxhall Nova Antibes E877UAT

@Remspoor I think that you are correct, its the same car

The blue was a vivid shade the same as this Cavalier:

Cavalier Antibes D240EBK

There is car salesman on YT High-peaks  (or som et like hat) from somewhere near the Peak District who would seem to have adverts like this. I have not watched him for some time I do remember him but his waffling about his stock this would be right up his ally.

I might have to bookmark West Border Cars for future monitoring.

Clearly a bunch of chancers, and very, very fond of capitalisation.

Here's another corker; a seventeen year-old Beetle Convertible (1.6) that was apparently previously owned by a beige lady.

Customer testimonial about West Border Cars, that they definitely* didn't write themselves:

"I bought a car from this dealership yesterday and I have nothing else to say except that they were professional. I visited 6 other dealerships before viewing a car here and they did everything to make me feel at ease and Have confidence with them. I had a lovely gentleman called Rob, and nothing was too much trouble for him. I’m in love with my new car and the service they provided was exceptional! I highly recommend them and if you’re looking for a genuine place to buy your next car, then you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again for such excellent and piece of mind service. Tanya"

Or save even more by not buying a wob covered MR2 for 40 grand. It has been reduced, they were asking 70k!

"YOU WILL NOT FIND ANOTHER VAUXHALL FRONTERA THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS"

For all or sakes I fucking hope not. £10k

 

May be an image of outdoors

The company I was working for until August bought a genuine 1980s HMWVV to do a project for the US military for £13k, do I'm not sure why you'd pay £10k for that piece of crap.

I dread to think how much they've paid out for it in total. 😲

In 30 odd years Ive worked with maybe two doctors who have actually looked after their cars and been enthusiasts, all the rest treat them like domestic appliances. Nurses are nearly as bad. I myself treat my own car like shit. I do look after the wifes, but that cost a metric shitload more than mine, which is a tool to get me from A to B frequently via various HMP and drug & alcohol service car parks.
