The lady offered the car for free which was very kind of her, it too had just a few days MOT left and the rear arm bearings were stuffed along with lots of other stuff, however the point I'm making is, at that time (bit like today) scrap is worthless and it would have cost her decent money to get the car towed away. probably the 103 miles to Inverness.
Don't forget the full free tank of diesel too ;-)

Wrong car, that was the Auto from Heathrow, and it wasn't free! I paid £200 for it :lol:

Would like to thank Nigel for offering the car. I have recieved this car and its well worth saving. I used shipley to get quotes and got it recovered down to selby for less than the train fayre to inverness and diesel to drive it back. So if anyone else needs a car moving id recommend them!
Im sure i will be bugging all with daft questions! Was a bit nail bitey without seeing the car first, Nigel didnt want it scrapped and he was completely honest with how it was described. Oh and hes a very polite and friendly chap for those thinking otherwise!
It shouldnt be scrapped. Far too good for that. The car was exactly how it was describes and what i was looking for.

Thanks again Nigel and i will keep all posted. Already finding bits and pieces to get her back on the road. The only rider being ive to put a new front end and respray the mrs' '90 mini mayfair first

Very glad the car has found a good home. We await updates...

And thanks to Nigel for offering the car up.
(Ken was well out of order - because, as Nige said, he put adequate contact details on the OP. Must've been having a bad day in Wakefield, eh?) ;)
