    Just picked this up tonight, Runs perfect but failed it's MOT on a few things the most major a cracked front subframe !!!

    Only paid £250 though so I thought i'm sure I could break it for more.

    Here's a quick pic

    Bargain @ £250, nail a £20 used subframe on there and get it legal. Has to be worth £800 ish then if you want a profit out of her

    Looks like it needs some springs fitted too, bumpstops arent supposed to hold the car up!

    Had a quick look today and it's not as bad as I thought.

    I'ts not actually the subframe, thats fine :)

    It's the alloy plates that go over the rear mountings.


    Just need to track some down now and replace them,

    Did you buy that off a lad called sparky? Sure he used to own it, he always had the unhappy face sticker on his cars as well.
