I'll get some piccys this weekend, and upload them to one of my domains this weekend (or tomorrow). In the meantime, this is the Ebay auction listing where I bought it. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=018&item=280034054917 I couldn't be happier with how she looks, feels and drives. > I've wanted one since I saw a white growling thing back in 1985 Sounds like you've just described my car. She's a big (compared to the fiesta I've just scrapped) white thing which makes me think of a Star Wars Imperial Stormtrooper Car. > reckoned it was far cooler than the Porsche Carrera I'd lusted after > until that point.

It needs a litle tiny bit of TLC, but hey, that's half the fun of buying old cars. The bodywork is solid, and not a sign of rust anywhere except the inside bottom of the doors (easily treatable) and on the flap covering the petrol cap (even easier treated). The radio doesn't work as it needs a new aerial, but the CD player works great. A new aerial isn't going to cost much. Oh and the fabric on the ceiling sags a little, but I can fix that with half an hour and a can of spray mount. And best of all was the price. In my opinion, a steal at only 171
