I wonder how far out of alignment it got shoved. I mean, in most of the pics it just looks like the front panel is bent, even the NS wing looks savable in this one:

Mind you, I don't have any experience of damaged repairables so I might be deceiving myself

It sounds like you chaps have talked yourself into buying it!! Are you mad??? Especially Mr Bo11ox!!!You are indeed a brave man, worthy of some kind of medal, perhaps the "Autoshite Gold award for gallantry in the face of Morris :shock: adversity"?!

Dont worry, i'm not buying that, I reckon stashing that in my works car park would be a classic case of 'biting the hand that feeds you'I'd love to have a crack at it, but space is the problem.

Oh. My. God.If ever there was an award for being "shite since birth" this is it.Who would do a thing like that? The original (standard) coloured ones are quite cute (if you squint/are mad), but why paint it pink and black? FFS!

We had one of those in the early 80s. VFG199L. It is still the only one I've seen with a honeycomb grille and the older FIAT logo. Am I right in thinking the FIAT 128 was the first car to feature the now standard layout of a transverse engine with end-on gearbox?

Esta looks in marginally better condition than Nigel's last rescue - very similar conversion and colour combo?

Anyone up there able to give it a once over for me?

I could probably go and have a gander over the weekend if it helps. Problem is that with a number plate like that it's going to attract a lot of attention from the plate rapists... :roll:

Dont click if you have just recently eaten!http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1989-NISSAN-ESCAR ... 0199524448

I remember about 15 years ago watching a designer on TV talking about what in her eyes was the greatest car in the world. The design was perfect in every respect and was exactly as a car should be, as she went round the vehicle pointing every brilliant feature from seat design to the headlights. As you can guess the vehicle was an S-Cargo, which, she wowed, sounded just like 'snail' in french and; it even looked like a snail yet it was still a car; and it was obviously a homage to the tin snail/2CV which was genius apparently....During this babbling on, my Dad just said 'She obviously cannot drive'.She ended this gushing praise with the statement that although she was the owner of this S-Cargo, she couldn't drive it as she didn't have a licence :roll::lol:

Should be alright because it has to have an MOT to transfer the plate. Doubt that'll pass with just a bit of T-Cut and some new brake fluid.

Problem is that a lot of these number plate dealers are also MoT testers. So if they need it to pass it'll pass. Then they keep it just long enough to transfer the plate off and then they crush it before VOSA can come poking around.
