No worries Tim. Just after a ball park figure so can maybe plan a road trip. Also where abouts is it? I appreciate you wouldn't want to tell me exactly. But a roughish idea would be great. Thanks again lee

Some COULD be saved, but its getting at them... the red RD hatch I had the interioer out of had a no rust in the shell, and only 72000 mile son the clock, yet its been sat there for over 10 years slowly sinking into the mud and being covered in layers of bird poo! Theres also a 40000 mile 14RE with a bust headgasket (TU powered) which is mint, and when I first saw it was looking well, its slowly going mouldy and being filled with crap and turning pink!

Are you talking about the pictures that Paul posted up on facebook linked from his post here in december 2013 ?

I particularly like the Black estate: G331 PRM, was it a Hearse at some time, or built as one !! ?
It looks good condition !!
