meh, somewhat... rare and valuable car, in what I assume is a rare color. I'd fix it too! As with anything, it depends on what it could be bought for. $$$

Its a famous car in the UK being used as a press car and appearing on a number of tv reviews

Car would cost a fortune to repair (and the hidden damage is severe)

The breakers selling have a rep for ridiculous pricing (they want over $34,000 for it)

Thanks for the link to Mintys page where the owner posted photos of the suspension ripped off the car. Now it's a different repair. I thought breakers said it runs and drives. May be they welded the suspension up. I would buy at low $20's now. That's not cool.

Thanks for the Links. See what happens when you're not on Rennlist. It's taking me a while to catch up.
