Post by th1360 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:03 pm

Just spotted this on eBay:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1997-ROVER-8 ... 3257460837

12 months MOT
55,000 miles

Seller notes: “Full MOT, mint interior with no dashlift, perfect electrics, needs some TLC to bring back to previous show winning standards, sad sale after 7 happy years.”

Classified Ad price: £1,695

A very nice looking example, really nice. Good job I don’t hanker after coops!

This is Gaz's car on display at the NEC in November 2013. It looked stunning back then.

It ended the other day Rick because "the item has been lost or broken" or "is no longer available for sale" - can't remember which but i'd guess it's sold unless Gaz can tell us different?
Cheers,

I would think hes sold it as it was listing price no reserve offered and still had time to run.

Hopefully he got a good price for it.

It was up for £1695 when i saw it Steve - about half what it's worth IMHO and probably worth more but he seemed to want a quick sale.

Yeah got full money (almost), thought I was selling to an enthusiast who begged me to keep it for him, turned up with trade plates, didn't know a thing about 800's, think a trader spotted an opportunity to flip or had a buyer, still, his money as good s anyone else, will turn up again on the 800 scene hopefully with an enthusiast, look forward to seeing it again at some point, had a great seven years.

Stag next when circumstances allow ;)

It wasn't a bloke from Gt Yarmouth was it Gaz?

Surprised you "negotiated" on the price though!

I just hope it wasn't some wise-guy buying it to use as the deposit on a new Euroblob as part of a scrappage scheme trade-in. If they really are an enthusiast, maybe we'll see it at Peterborough in August. Are you coming for that Gaz?
Cheers,
Dave
