I hope someone HAS bought it. Last I heard about, it the owner was threatening to break it for spares, because he kept getting Ebay timewasters and the car wasn't selling :scared

For sale AGAIN?

This car has had more owners than I’ve had hot dinners. Why is it such a hot potato?!

Perhaps it's suffering from sticking valves due to running on non detergent fuel? Mine was took a few thousand miles on BP/Shell/Esso fuel injection cleaner before the power came back, plus a sticky hydraulic tappet that was possibly cured with regular changes of synthetic oil. :rolleyes

Must just be cursed like Christine.

Curse gets lifted only if you manage to sell for more than £500.
