  1. The Facebook group is great for getting immediate answers to a request for spares etc, for technical advice like you are giving you cant beat the forum.
  2. Manta i200 at auction

    Well Danny was right, its back up for sale at £5750 in Buckingham not far from Ian Virco. Sold for £5300 inc buyers premium at recent auction. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C962120
  3. I just think that a starting bid of £3500 is unrealistic, sometimes when you see a car sell with one bid its because the seller gets a mate to bid on it to get the auction going. I know this car well & its a good car but realistically in its present condition if it was put on with a low starting bid it could make around £2K Still a healthy profit for the present owner
  4. Now relisted https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/vauxhall-cavalier-mk1-sportshatch-64-000-miles-history-motd-gorgeous-rs-2000-era/183057471075?_trkparms=pageci%3Ae16693c8-0b2d-11e8-b852-74dbd1806b18|parentrq%3A6acc55e31610ab6b36a11d16fffdf972|iid%3A1&_trksid=p2481888.c100651.m4497

    We couldn't make Powderham last year due to the date clashing with the new VBOA show venue at Market Harborough but luckily they dont this year. Nice A by the way.

    Hi Stuart Welcome back to the club. I'm the rep for the West Country & South Wales & live in Bristol & James Sene is the rep for the South West & lives near Newton Abbott. There are some members that live around the Exeter area & we plan on having a club stand at the annual Powderham Castle show near Exeter over the weekend of 7th & 8th July this year. If you are interested in joining us then let me know. Can you get some pics up of your car ?
  9. Yep my old car i sold many moons ago in 2011. It has been resprayed since but is a good car that was neglected after i sold it but has had some money chucked at it recently. Badges were removed by previous owner whilst it was prepped for respray but never put back on. I sold it for £950 in January 2011, the only thing wrong with it then was a small amount of grot in one arch & around the fuel filler cap plus it needed a respray due to paint fade. Sold for £1252 in March 2017 Looking at the present advert it looks like it only needs a small amount of work to get it back to show standard, e.g. repaint the rostyles .

  11. Manta i200 at auction

    That was strong money for the Cavalier but it did look in very original good condition. Expect to see it up for sale at a dealer soon.

    Hi Danny Welcome, where are you based?
  13. Full Restoration D91 MOP

    Awesome build just like your Droop Snoot Firenza Jason. I knew you'd listened when i said original was best but repairing the sunroof back to factory spec now that's going the extra mile See you soon
  14. Hello Everyone

    Hi Steve welcome back Looks like your old Cavalier is currently on a SORN & the last MOT ran out in April 2009. MOT history shows that the cars mileage at the start of its last MOT in April 2008 was 21,626 still a very low figure. So the car appears to still exist somewhere, hopefully in dry storage.
  15. 87D GT/E Exclusive Coupe £20K

    That's a nice collection of Mantas you have Gerry. £20K is top money but your car is what the market currently likes e.g. original & unmodified plus low mileage. It ticks other boxes as well being an Exclusive Coupe. As others have said a car is worth what someone is willing to pay but as you are not desperate to sell it then you can afford to wait for the right buyer to come along.
