Hi there,

i am just wondering if its worth selling or scrapping..
is the engine of any use for other projects or hobbies. as its a bit of a beast and goes well for its age.

its due its mot in a couple of weeks and the exhaust has just fallen apart.
the backbox and mid section is going to cost me 200 ish upwards.
if i could replace these parts cheaper and get it through the MOT i would consider keeping it for another year..

it sailed through its last MOT, number plate bulb on its 17th year... pretty dam impressive ...

I've got a similar one to you. Great cars to own. 200 is nothing to keep it on the road for another year. I know a mechanic up your way if you need an MOT.
