What a beauty!

How Do Guys, :D Blimey was just about to start me kadett and just do enough to get an MOT on her and get rid, but seen this beauty and now having second thoughts :roll:

Ebay Link

Just wondered how many of you guys run your Kadetts as main form of transport? I would like to but not sure? Mardy or what :lol: :lol:

This was at Billing - nice, but not as nice as the other two that were there! (IMHO). Can't believe the price!

Fran, I used to run my old coupe as everyday transport - with tarmac suspension, quick rack, no trim, Corbeau GT8s, cage, the lot!

Using the new one at the mo to shake it down but won't use it all the time.

£4.9K my bottom! ...and for a bleedin' replica :roll:

I can't help but think that as the seller knows their own reserve then they can push the bidding up to just below & hope someone's conned into casting the bid that breaks the reserve.

Perhaps I'm just cynical?
Anyone have a 6R4 for sale? Unfortunately I've only got £1K spare but I could throw in a few eggs to sweeten the deal!

Well all the top bidders are in Derby/Derbyshire, as is the seller, just a coincedence maybe? :)

Guess what - it's reared it's expensive head again:

clicky link

I like the sellers quote: Relisted . did not quite make Reserve!

What he should have added after that was: despite my best efforts to bid-up the item :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
