1992 1.7 TZD Hurricane Spotted F/S on C&C - Only 2 Owners !

Post by RxBX »

As title listing J889 UOG spotted for sale on Car & Classic, only 2 family owners from new with 111k miles !

Needs some TLC but @ £550 O.N.O. I'm sure this will not be around for too long if the body/metal structure is okay/reasonable in the usual WEAK-SPOTS !

Sandre GO for it (Before it ends up @ Newark) :lol:

As I was even in two minds to view and hopefully buy it (And not to bother posting the spot) but 'No room at the Inn' unfortunately :(

If I could get over there before next weekend to look at it (I can't) I would seriously consider it - and if it's not been snapped up by Thu/Fri next week will very likely consider it again ...

NEXT weekend will be Tooooooooooo-late (As I'm sure it will be gone by then) !

I'm out, but it looks fantastic for the money and probably not going to hang around. While I'd probably disagree with Swiss Tony when he says, owning a classic car is like making love to a b'yoodiful woman, both are expensive hard work. Why would anyone possibly want two!!? :)

Well done Sandre, hope all goes smoothly. It does look perfect for you. I just wish I could afford that Meteor that has been posted recently, it is exactly what I wanted. Trouble is I am now very attached to my TXi.
