Is that a Mk1 in the background? There also seems to be a Beetle in one of the sheds.

I though that, but after closer inspection it looks to me to be an early S2 with the non smoked lamps, but that said im not sure.

Oh dear,that didnt do very well! Sold on 1st bid at £300.Just when it looked like prices were starting to rise?Is it because its a 16 petrol?
I think the other car in the background is an earlier Mk2 judging by the bumper.

Blimey, someone seems to have got a good 'un there for not much. A very nice example - good colour and good spec. Wonder if the new owner will make an appearance here.

If a very tidy,taxed and well tested car of this quality can only raise £300 it really makes me concerned that many people just wont bother with general repairs to keep them going and just squash them?

Well the sale in my opinion wasn't very well planned, 24 hour only listing, starting bid at £300 and not THAT many pictures, it could have done better if advertised properly, someone got a bargain though, but alas its true the 1.6 petrol cars don't find many friends unless they are mint and low miles.
