Down from 25K.

Purchase price was 4K and change, a while back now.

I like the mileage, and I might even keep the exterior, but I'd have to put the interior back to standard I'm afraid - it would have to be useable as an every day car for me to live with it. Which sort of defeats the point of that particular car I suppose. And I wouldn't pay 18K either...

It is quite historic really though - most of the land speed records achieved by it and its twin still stand today. Maybe they'll never get beaten now, as we all transition gently to ultra-sensible electric cars over the next few decades...
