I don't think I've seen that colour before. I really like it.

Same colour as my Dads vario

Looks like it's stolen recovered.

What a waste.

Pity it's a B for breaker, I can't buy it as I'm not a breaker.....or may be that's just as well :lol:

If I could, I'd start a 300 scrap yard :P , although Copart's prices are too steep. Even if no-one else bid on it that will still cost £270 with all the add on costs, on a car worth only £100 in scrap. Obviously parts could sell for more but work has to be put in to get them off. And add to that the cost of time and diesel to get to Wolverhampton and back.

Always let me know if anyone sees a good one on Copart as I'm now a member, especially if you see one at Sandtoft, near me. If you want one to do up I can get it and deliver it on a trailor.

Hi all.
Can't see it costing three grand to fix and £600 is way too much for a scrapper
so unfortunatly it will probably end up in the crusher sm2
Cheers Mark.

£600 was the pre write off value, didn't see how much it went for if it sold at all.
