I have advertised my car in loads of Internet sites, village corner shop window, office noticeboard, magazines - you name it! Getting lots of enquiries but no cash offers as yet. Would prefer to sell it to a hood enthusiast, so come on guys who wants to make me an offer?

 

Car comes complete with 3 month's MOT and 10 month's Road Tax.

 

Cheers

Post-script - I thought I had sold the car to someone overseas by e-mail transaction, which turned out to be a scam!!

The so-called deal was to accept a cheque for twice the selling price, and pass on the extra dosh to a 'Shipping Company' supposedly to transport the car by ship. The cheque is duff/stolen, and by the time you or your bank realise the money in your bank account is as good as Monopoly, you could be well out of pocket, and the scammer is long-gone! Fortunately for me, I spotted the Met Police's web-site dealing with this and a lot more rip-offs.

 

SO MY EXMO IS STILL FOR SALE. CONTACT ME TO VIEW & TEST-DRIVE IN HERTFORDSHIRE
