No worries Steve, it's obviously been either a well cared for car or it has a bad history of breaking down, hence the low mileage! I'd go for well cared for! :wink:

Knowing most reds are "fugitive" colours the paint could have been to "freshen up" a faded car, regardless of all our speculation, it's still a good looking car and from the year would appear to be on the changeover so would have one of those immobilisers you know who was always on about.

Someone could buy it and spend a little on it to fewttle it and have a very nice show car worth a good bit more than was paid. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
