What, up for sale?! :shock:

Surely that's exactly the right colour for a postman, and plenty of room in the back for mailbags? :lol:

It seems a real shame to sell it now before you get the chance the drive it.

But if I were you, I'd dedicate a couple of weekends to getting the majority of the car screwed back together. You'll get twice as much for it!

Unfortunately abandoned projects sell for peanuts, but complete cars can make twice as much. Go even further and get it an MOT and you could be looking north of £4K. Cars with nice paintwork sell easily...........

....I understand what your saying Corky, but times against me now, im happy to let it go as im happier to start my new job, its on Evilbay now!

Someone will certainly get a project that's worth finishing. Good luck with the sale.

Well the Scimitar has been sold £1060, the guy who bought it has plans to make it 4 wheel drive and to throw a Cosworth engine in it, he plans to keep it stock looking so sounds like itll be a cool SE5a when finished, he said he will take him a few years what with work and other projects.
