Especially with "plug holes full of dirt" WTF?

Either this guy hasn't spotted something simple like kitchen roll bunging the holes or that engine if FUBAR.

Probably the reason it's off road. Not to mention potential rust. Moneypit.com.

Definitely needs inspection, though I suspect it's just going to going round with "timewasters" not turning up...

It obviously needs looking at first but I'm not sure I understand who your rat is amongst the five bidders....

£1000 is going to look cheap in a few years time for a 16v.

It started at a grand, to be fair. Could just have been someone who was very keen and didn't want it to get sold outside of eBay, so got a bid down early. I'm a snipe-bidder on eBay everytime, but if something rare comes up and I definitely want it, I'll pop one on straight away. If nobody bids and the chap gets emails offering to buy it now, he's likely to pull it.

True, I am just getting increasingly cynical as I get older :-#

Iv bought this car you talk about, after wanting one for many years I came across this one. Picked it up today and mega impressed with it. 100% complete, interior immaculate, 3 owners from new, last owner being a citroen dealership which has owned since 1999.
Bodywork is in fantastic condition for it's age and how long it's been laid Up, very little rust. Engine oil is clean as a whistle and engine turns over freely. Gonna get amongst it in the morning and try to get it running. Will post up the results over the next few days. Once running I plan to do a full nut and bolt restore on it, wanted one for that long , going to take my time and have it concourse by time it's finished

Little update, spent a day on the engine today, cleaned plug holes out, turned over a few times by hand, realised starter was stuck. starter motor off, freed, lubed and back on, fuel pump replaced, as was siezed. fresh fuel, plugs refitted.
Little bit messing on and she fired, ran for a few seconds and cut out. Plugs out, gave them a good clean, back in and she's running like a dream, suspension going up and down, although slightly sticky, probably will improve with use. power steering and brakes working. Even managed to have a little drive round the industrial estate. Overall pretty impressed with a barn find that's been laid up for 14 years. Gonna give it a full service and proper run up next week before the strip down.
