Why would anyone want to trade you a 9k Anni (or even worse an Aero) in "very good nick" for this car that is such a rolling heap that you can't stand to keep it? I have to tell you... the one thing that makes me shy away from buying any car is body rust. I can fix just about anything mechanical myself, but bringing an older car to the body shop that has *any* amount of rust is losing proposition. -- -Fred W
