Needs to be cheap, that green 2004 car. Not only as it needs heaps of work (paintwork, leather work, major service work, anti-rust treatment, sticky button repairs, etc), but because even after all that you’ll be left with a car with very little service history and therefore always a depressed value. What a shame.

Even after all that work it would only be worth maybe £10k in the trade, so what’s it worth now at auction as a blind punt purchase, with no warranty or comeback? Given that the work will cost maybe £5-£10k depending on how far you go, the answer to the above is surely not-a-lot. Looks like the vendor is getting out of it at the right time and in the right way, as they’re bound to get more than it’s true value.

Agree completely, looked at it, good colour and good interior colour but then mention of clutch, brakes, no service for for 6 years, wheels, paint etc. will add up to a very big initial bill £8-10k seems very optimistic!

Black Granturismo in Worcester, think it was a facelift or Strad, couldn’t tell you the reg as the front number plate had fallen off.

White QPV passing the old loco roundhouse in Wellingborough this morning, looking very elegant and sounded fantastic. Thought I saw the back end of a Biturbo 222 as well near Radlett, but on closer inspection is was a bloody Volvo!

Lovely black QPV coming out of Salisbury to Coombe Bissett at lunchtime, anyone on here? I didn’t get the reg and was in a knackered Freelander so no waving!

J14 M4/A338. I followed a very loud 4200 (MA51 FUN), which I assume was running Larinis? Anyone here? I was in the SL top down so had the full orchestra.

Not a Maserati but a pretty rare spot.....Bugatti EB110 coming up the slip road into Chepstow around 1300 today. I belongs to a chap who has a a very big collection of cars in Chepstow. Still one **** of a car in the flesh.

So t who spots today....Again not a Maserati....

took Liz’s car in to get two rear tyres and this chap was having some on his car...I say tyres more like a slither of liquorice.

Then heard this very loud exhaust coming out of the petrol station in Chepstow.....Yellow 911 being driven by Chris Harris....He had clearly bought a Greggs as he was stuffing it into his mouth.83277
