The Price is SHITE!

The typical MG Maestro owner would have been a die hard Austin Rover ‘Enthusiast’. Wouldn’t have been the bearded sort, they’d hate anything post 1981. Wouldn’t have been Mr Average either, the Maestro was considered old hat and unfashionable even when in production. Would have one though.

It all depends if his mates are on line to help the bidding and one of them doesn't make the winning bid.

My guess is that it will be removed from sale before the listing ends, as either some mug will turn up and offer the reserve to take it away now, or there's a mistake in the description and the seller decides to go for a fixed price listing instead.

(£3.066.53)

I guess we have a winner then.... Sort of. 

Now I've had a word with Katy Perry but she's not available for a bit so here we go, its Les building a sandcastle with Dustin Gee.

Did they ever do the Festival Fringe? I can't think of another sensible reason why they'd have a scottish flag on their sand castle.

I reckon £2100.00 and a squashed, slightly melty Mars Bar.  Under the seat will be £1.65 in loose change, so £2,098.35

Boom_Daughter who is experienced* in the motor trade (and is 11 years old) says £1335 and no melty confectionery

Phwoar! Thats a result. Katy was busy again but Les sorted me out with a signed photo this time which I'm pretty pleased with

Anyway, continuing the 1980s theme we have developing, I'd like to put this slice of Gallic Greenery forward

6 and a bit days to run, got bids already and appears to have no reserve - which I'm taking to mean its utterly fucked and the seller just wants rid. Its got that look of 'just at the point where everything becomes terminally rusty all at once' and you end up sellig your house, a kidney and a lung to keep it running, because doing so saves* you £55 a year on MOTs (from next year).

Over to you guys - wHaTs uR beSt PRiCE m8?

I think it's better* than @Stanky says. It's a project for sure but it has Some Things that Work, which is more than most other 1981 CXs.

It's also a late Phase 1 chrome bumper so the Citroen paedos will be foaming at the gash. Not me though, I like the Phase 2 plastic bumper Grace Jones weirdness.

Good description too, perhaps even honest, who knows? 

I'll go for £2612.33 even without MoT.

It does look like good, but there are some crusty edges. Interior looks good and clean.

 

And it’s a CX, so if it’s got visible crusty edges it will have no battery tray box section, possibly no fuel filler surround inside the flap and if it’s really bad rotted out rear window channels and if sunroof, we’ll, let’s not mention the drains. Nearly forgot, it’s a Pallas, so possibly (probably?) no sills under the chrome cover plates 🤣
