I'm sure we sued to have a page for good finds but ironically I can't find it now!

Cheap pair of wings at the moment!

Good find, Danny!

Although I suspect they won't stay at £60 for long....

Oh yeah, I didn't notice that! :lol:
If they can't be reused as a whole, I'm sure somebody would be able to get £60 worth of repair panels out of them?

Easily!
Compared to buying sheet metal it's definitely better value, and if you were to use Capri panels on a Capri you could technically say it's all original metal! 😉

Well spotted, Paul.

Obviously selling surplus parts before the big move.

Well spotted Andrew! It certainly appears to be Dan judging by his picture...

Speaking of, he had an incident the other day in his brand new motor...

Oh no, that's devastating news. I really feel for Dan.
Thankfully, the damage looks reasonably light and repairable but that's barely any consolation. I think he's right to insist on having the repairs undertaken at a place of his choosing.

That will happen if you are searching on women's shopping sites Tom 😂

Good idea, sporting bets! Nearest wins. What do we think?

I'll start and say.... £275,000.

What a state and where would you keep them all :?

My winning bid estimate is £95,000

My guess is similar, maybe a bit less at say £85 -90K. Lifetime of work amongst that lot though.

Im guessing £65k. A lot of stuff but also a lot of junk so it would need not only someone with a lot of cash and space but also a means of disposing of the junk. Then there is the moving it all. A dealer in classic car parts would be my guess.
There was a guy near my Mum who used to buy a lot of interesting MOT faliures and his plan was to fix them up and make a proft. He had been buying since the 70s and when he died a couple of years ago most were well beyond saving but it was all sold to a specalist and the lot was cleared in less than a week. I know there were several Jags including an E type with a tree growing through it. It is now a new housing development.
