Mine is a 2003, 68k miles, pan roof, 1/2 leather, air con, fsh, all original with NO rust or bubbles anywhere. Wondering what it's worth as I'm thinking of selling.2002 Cooper with 1 owner from new, 65k on the clock, full service history and receipts, never seen the inside of a bodyshop (except when BMW fitted the Aerokit) and always been garaged.
Someone with a severe case of misplaced nostalgia paid £10K for one on Bangers & Cash.Ford Escort 1.1 popular in beige would not be high on my list of memorable cars!!!😂
Valid point, however I do believe this nostalgia is being seized upon by the dealers/Auction houses to promote any old crap as "modern classics".^ this is why cars sell at what they do, because of nostalgia,
My old man use to have Integrale Evos back in the 80s on. Infact the very first car I ever steered sat on my dads knees then very first car I ever drove properly.I understand your line of logic, but, I would have my Lancia Delta Inregrale 8v back in a heartbeat! My 1983 golf gti mk1 1.8 in Lhasa green and my 1988 Peugeot 205 1.9 gti in Miami blue and my much missed 1989 Renault 5 gt turbo in Carmine red, tuned by Radbourne Racing from new.
Not for the outrageous prices that they are now fetching, but because they are true classics, with their own driving oddities and amazing design. I am lucky to have owned all of them, and more, and would love to get just one of them back. Ford Escort 1.1 popular in beige would not be high on my list of memorable cars!!!😂
