    Thanks Steve.
    Loved driving it home. Only hit the 4K rev limiter twice but otherwise the car was fine all the way home. Few minor issues as we discussed but nothing to condemn the car or your description of it. Glad to justify my user name again.

Arch's need sorting out as they are out of shape a full paint job is required as laquar is peeling and all the above and more issues.... It's as full restoration.

    This guy is another Gary.... Don't be a Gary.

    I think the seller needs to go specsavers if he thinks his car is a show car

    long and short of it is the car was wrongly advertised and celery is not as the car in the pictures or description on the sale advert.

    Sorry 1200 pound drop from 5200 to 4000.
    Anyway, looks like I'm keeping this so a moot point.

    Ok fair enough.
    Car is no longer for sale. Sorry to waste everybody's time.
    I freely admit I'm not bodywork expert but I thought it was worth the ?1.5k drop I took to ?4k.

    I think I need to take my words back.

    I don't normally do this or like to discredit anyone but you need to change them old photos and add updated photos of the car and the effected areas and be totally honest with the description, it's definitely not a show car as you are claiming and be brutally honest admit it's time for Saj to go through a restoration.

    Not fair having people drive miles from all over the UK to view a car that's being falsely and incorrectly advertised.

    Thanks guys.
    I'll be very sad to see Saj go, but it's really not fair the car just sitting there and being driven for an hour once or twice a week due to working from home for the foreseeable.

    Took the ad down on Car & Classic due to phone ringing off the hook.
    Car is still for sale though, but have a viewer from the forum due to see it on 14th November and will not sell it before that viewing.
