(Hols = 1400 miles in the 800, including Ireland and France - for long and complicated reasons - without even having to lift the bonnet)

MAJOR love for the 800 from one French guy in Brittany (before the result was declared...) even though it was looking pretty well travelled by then!

Buyers just pulled out.
Sadly she's been convinced that a non runner with a big repair bill is still worth silly money.

it will just end up being scrapped in the end, my mate tried to buy a car and had the same problem, in the end the car just got scrapped, my mate had offered 4 times the scrap value, but the owner made his point i suppose, and he didn't even know my mate that well, so who really lost out in the end.

also I've noticed something creeping up on 800 ownership, something that has crept up on a lot of cars in recent years, the disease known as Facebook fever.

800s have notched up in value over the last year, not greatly but a bit, and I've noticed that a lot of people buy 800s as they are a cheap way onto a forum or Facebook page, and not before long they are back up for sale when the pictures have been posted and the chitty chat as run dry and their off to buy a fcuked subaru impreza and and a matching rally jacket and posts about a 500hp rebuild and trackday adventures and bullshit bbq's and pub meets. blah blah blah

Yea, prices seem to be firming for good cars for sure.
In fact there's very few for sale at all at the moment.
That said, there still practically worthless if they need work.
TBO I offered more than I felt the car was worth given the vendors situation so I think you're right, that cars for the scrappys.

I don't need the car as much as she needs to sell it, so no I didn't bother. I know there's a few spares with it but TBO it's all just replicating stuff I already have and when you can still buy a whole car for less than £100 with all the parts in a nice tidy collection they were actually a liability to me as storage could be a problem due to another project in strip down ATM (boy don't cars take up a lot of room in bits :shock: )
