I would expect this car to be "floating around" a while now it's on the open market.
Would be nice for someone to grasp the nettle and restore it, but there's very few people out there who can/ are willing to take on a car like this. And do it properly.

Yep, definitely not a Majestic. The sunroof gives it away straight away. Majestic's never had a sunroof option, no matter what the specified variant was.


I don't think many owners really take responsibility for their cars condition.
Even if they deteriorate badly on their ownership.

There wasn't any point in "telling him off" for ruining it. The horse has bolted already...,
He had a field full of wrecks though, not just the one.


A shame, a huge shame!

He's pissing in the wind!!!!!

No 'informed person' is going to pay that for it.

I would give him 500 - but of course, if I had the space!!!! (Naki - I can see me looking to rent a corner of your barn one day mate!!!! :lol: )

Honestly? I would go to 500 as it is an Insignia and I like the colour...............

I think that's a fair offer in reality.
Give it a few months....
He's hoping for an uninformed buyer though clearly.

Well, its taken two years to come back, but of course it did come back. This time with the door cards off the car, but otherwise intact looking? So, who bid? Not me.
