Always loved the styling of these. This doesn't seem too bad value in the grand scheme of things.  Go on Skizzer!

I like the colour scheme and the styling has grown on me over the years.

The decimal point is in very much the wrong place for me price-wise though.

They look much better in real life than photos. The interiors are probably the best there is. Traditional without being fusty - beautiful.

The Camargue has definitely improved with age. I always thought the'd look great if they didn't have that stupid R-R grille, but the same can be said for virtually every R-R built since about 1930. Paolo Martin was a genius, and the fact that a car of such immense heft looks even a little bit lithe and sporty is a testament to his skills. The federal bumpers don't do it any justice, either. If they'd been launched in 1971 or something I bet they'd look loads better. They have to be in a 1970s bathroom suite colour to really look their best, too.

Proper money though, innit, for something that's always gonna be a bit disappointing. I'd rather have a 130 coupe for a third of the price

Remortgage the house?

(and then hope your employers don't "do an Aon"...)

@PhilA so this would be a better idea than a 1500? - he has an 11 plate for 8800

he mentions sales tax and fees - how much might that be extra?

 

Tax and fees depend where it's going. That's not uncommon to see up around there because if it goes to DE then the taxes are low, NJ there'll be other nonsense. Export? No clue.

 

Note that one is also a longer wheelbase and by UK standards is getting towards being difficult to use (the turning circle on them is terrible). You could always look for a long bed crew cab for complete insanity.

 

Note that the HD variants do have completely different underpinnings, the 2500 is the same as mine but with heavier springs and stiffer tires. 

LT1 also makes a 1980's Mercedes with no options checked look plush and feature-filled. That one there? Work truck.

Would you also need a C1 license? 

I can imagine that the gross weight of these trucks are going to be easily in excess of 3,500kg that a B licence would cover...

They’ve both got the wrong engine and the wrong gearbox and are fucked in the same places though.

And the price is silly.

Dammit though, I’ve typed all this out now so I’m posting it anyway.

Looks ok in the pics but the description uses worrying words like ‘saveable’ that are inconsistant with the highly ambitious £5k asking.

Also

boot lid has a flute installed

It’s go oboe or go home for me, I’m afraid.

You just know that some mindless stoner is going to cover all that genuine, honest shitness with fake rust and swastikas and cardboard suitcases and shit until you want to punch them in the throat.

Is it wrong to think that obtaining a crashed 5.7 V8 Monaro and somehow putting the engine in a Monza, would be sublime?

I want to like Marcoses and I even got chatting to Chris Marsh on a train once, but Christ’s wounds this is hideous.

that mk1 golf - brilliant!  i would love to get that road legal and drive with it as-is - apart from the plastic wheeltrim its perfect!

Also just noticed it's a very rare "GX" run out model - shame someone in the 80's has added a plastic sunroof but it kind of suits the car....

Just noticed it's just along the road from me in edinburgh and currently only at £160.....must not bid,must not bid,must not bid!!
