I wouldn`t mind if I could understand even a quarter of what he said. Nice list of motorways that is hasn`t `disappointed him on`. I wonder if there`s any that it DID though?
To his credit there`s a few useful looking spares which are probably worth more than the car alone. Hard to judge how it will go but I don`t see him making much (if anything) over the starting price as it wants work and cannot be moved.
It`ll also be a `mare to get onto a low loader or recovery truck with the suspension stuck down so unless someone collects who knows what they`re doing there`s more potential problems there.
Still, the sunroof deflector could be auctioned on here and would probably raise silly money!

Strangest advert ive ever seen!! It reads as though he must be foreign, rather than stupid. He seems to have chosen the strangest words. Its quite entertaining I have to admit. Be worth the bid just to meet the bloke lol.

He`d be more than welcome to post it to me. The letterbox won`t be his biggest problem though, that`ll be Mrs Cavmad and her legendary rolling pin :lol:

Having re-read the listing I reckon that`s actually not a bad buy really. In the hands of the right buyer it`s potentially a nice car. Describing it as a `sh*tt*r` is a bit off, it`s a cheap, saveable car with some useful and sought after spares to go with it.
I reckon in about ten years (or less) time the likes of the new door and rear panel will be worth a good few bob to an enthusiast. Good luck to him, if I didn`t have some many forms of transport knocking about (got two more tonight :roll: ) and no money I`d have a go at it.
