    I don't think it was used much from checking its mot history, could be many reasons why he's selling it. He was extremely happy when he bought it and complimentary on its condition though. Didn't say anything about gaps etc, not like someone who knows nothing about 1980s car production on the Facebook page. I lost it a bit there but won't do that again as I'm not commenting any more on it on that page
    Yes, as you say we don't know why he's put it up for sale, people's circumstances do change. I saw the failbook post, it looked to me as though somebody had changed an indicator bulb & not engaged the bottom lug on the lamp unit correctly, something I'm sure we've all done once or twice. The other things he mentioned looked to be parallax errors due to using a relatively wide angle lens to take photos in a confined space. Very easy for people that don't have a car of their own & have never rebuilt one to pick holes in other peoples on there, especially if they were asleep in their school physics lessons

          Yeah I'm surprised it only reached that. I assume its the cat C on it. Either way he lost quite a bit on it in the two years on his ownership. He didn't use it much at all but it's on its way to another owner who may or may not join the club or Facebook page.

          • I'm assuming the seller accepted this amount as it differs from the original post. That's without fees

                If we could have seen into the future back then, some of us would have made pots of cash out of our old cars (the ones I'm thinking of weren't all in particularly good nick, but included a 50 mk 2 escort van, one or two 500-1000 suffix A Range Rovers and a mint 400 Marina van..) how times change!
