:shock: Looks more like it's been dredged up from an underwater barn, nice paint all considered though, he says, desperately looking for the positives!

Whilst looking at that one, ebay suggested a Sprint at £8,500 in a rather Inca looking shade for an early car where the advertiser says they have found one that is as new at £17,000 which seems quite a lot of exciting amounts of money, is it a club members?

Won't that be an issue though if going for MOT exempt? :wink:

It's not MOT or VED exempt yet! Lets face it, this is just an overpriced parts car! Annoyingly close to me though!
