Take this for instance that’s coming soon with only 38000 miles -

Devanti ditch finders

A engine bay that looks like it went down with the Titanic

Stereo all chewed up - and that’s just from the pictures

I’m sure someone will give really good money for it just because of the miles
That 172 Cup.

Noticed the ditch finders straight away.

I might be completely wrong on this, but the first thing I usually look at is the tyres on a car,
even if its at a car show or a C&C.

If they are from the cheaper/unknown end of the tyre manufacturer spectrum, it usually
starts ringing alarm bells.

The old adage, if they have skimped on getting properly decent tyres, what else have they
tried to save money on.
And if its a hodge lodge of different makes, that's another sign to take note of.

You’re totally right here Nick. It will make good money purely on the mileage. Given the cheap tyres fitted to a car known for handling (criminal act in my opinion) then you have to wonder where else during the history have they not spent the money where it was needed!

I struggle to understand the amount of £ being paid for number plates on CC, is '6 AST' really worth £10k?! On the plus side, no servicing/history to worry about!
