    Brought a new car.....sort of

    Well, I didn't expect to win it but for the money it's gotta be worth keeping for our rather short summer and stored for winter in a friends warehouse?. It needs a few things doing such as a service and fix the coolant leak, maybe a new antenna and get the leather seats repaired but I could run it without doing anything if I wanted but have a soft spot for these and always wanted one. I would like a single din cd radio (concert) for it if anyone has got one please pm me. If you know the car I'd love to hear from you

    These still look quite upto date to me for some reason, a better looking machine than some new open top cars you can buy today in my opinion. Everyone needs to own an open top car at some point in their life, I'd happily roll in that Carl!

    Very nice indeed keep it as an investment, im sure prices on these will be going up in a few years especially if you sort out the niggles.

    Tracey mum has an 80 coupe, don't see many on the road until we drive around in it, then you see quite a few, and they all wave. The 80 is still a fantastic looking car and an ageless design.

    Car serviced but still needs a few items to get it where I want it. So have brought a donor car as it has got loads of bits I can use to bring mine up to spec and it arrives tomorrow.
