Looking at this one. It's almost the same as my old one I had in the early nineties.

No i havent seen it, im realistic though, if i buy a cheap car, i dont haggle, as i know if it came to it, i would break it to make my money back, have spares and profit.
Have you looked over it then?

Loads of pics and a chat with seller. I've bought a couple of cars unseen and know you have to be able to write the cash off. Never haggle once bought tho. If it was closer I'd have looked it over. Just looks the car I'm after with it been so close to the one I had.

Yeah. I thought £200 or just over at max. Especially with £200 to transport it.
If anyone sees or hears of a mk1 project in Yorkshire let me know!
