    I notice he doesnt mention why it doesnt run.
    estimated cost to make it right - thousands or alternatively just tow to the scrap yard.
    Maybe we are all being too harsh.

    Just kind of says Chav doesn't it. What even makes him think that is going to be a nice car. As far as modded cars go that will be a right dog even when it is finished.

    That ask seller a question idea is genius. :D

    I suppose the only way that car looks good is with your eyes closed.

    It's a crying shame that he chose such a modern classic to do it to.

    Im going to send him an email. Ill take it off his hands if he pays me £10000 does that sound resonable? Then we can have a 'thrash a piece of junk round a track avforums day'
