Has less that 5k miles on it but still :shock: £120k for any Vauxhall is a bit much :shock:

Doesn't need an engine. Depreciation if it was to be used would be off the scale so it can only be bought to sit and look at. Mind you I sold mine with circa 70k miles on it in 2008 for about £14k...and I heard that it recently change hands, now at over 80k miles, for ~£40k (albeit following a major refurb which probably cost twice the difference!)

I think they cost around £50 k in 1990 which is equal to about £110,000 now so it's not that far off the original as new price. But just as then it wouldn't be top of my list if I had that sort of money to spend on a car!

If I bought it to sit and look at, I'd want to look at the engine Mike!
