It would make an excellent daily driver with some TLC. And yes it has to be a daily driver. Given the time space and facilities I would definatley keep it, and have it as part of the "museum". Not some mouldy old showroom, but somewhere where I had a full collection of working cars that had to earn their keep. >The right person will come along Carl, I'm sure of that. The price at just >over 2K is not at all bad for a C900 convertible already with leather and >bodykit, but do be aware that they shift of eBay for less.

TBH, it could do with new front skins for the seat backs, or a panel replacing, at least on the drivers side. I did consider maybe a part ex, but the problem with trade is they want some cash. Other enthusiasts are willing sometimes for a straight swap. I that means they take on the work, but if they are a welder or sprayer who wants a 900 and is bored with their 9k or GM900, such things happen. >Shame - perhaps later, when you have the facilities to deal with "the >dream", it'll be worthwhile.
