    Or rather restoring a 1977 Capri Mk2 1600 GL in Green. Restored 1987 Toyota MR2 Mk1. '04 Toyota Corolla & '13 Rav4 Invincible
    Wow, what a mess but still being bid on. Plenty of parts still look restorable and all the trims appear to be there be I'm not sure how you'd get it out of there. In boxes maybe.

    MX5 daily, Mk3 Capri (project yet again)
    Bumpers, grill and MAYBE some interior parts but I still don't think it's worth £230. But like you said Bod not too sure how anyone will move it

    bumpers could cost that alone! mind you they are rusting badly too. as you say trims should be ok and rear lenses, what are grills going for these days?

    I do like the colour they did the Mk2's in some nice greens (sorry car below.

    Engine, gearbox, struts, axle? Surely that's worth £230? :)

    Exactly. It's debateable if it can be moved in one piece, and as for parts? Well, I wouldn't fancy having to pay for the privalage of trying actually move it and remove what are not special in the way of mechanicals in the hope of getting my money back/make a profit.

    This should be a reverse bid, where people are bidding down what the owner would have to pay them to take it away! If it was mine, I'd just want shot of it.

    I bet the 6 bids so far are the owners, they are probably trying to get a bidding frenzy going! :DeadHorse:
