A regrettable bargain lies herein:

White MR2 Mk1b - 1989
Tax and MOT until Sept off the top of my head.
82,000 miles!

It drives 'okay' - I use it for a short commute daily, but needs some attention:
Front n/s wing needs replacing - someone slid into me in the snow, leaving a nice graze, which extends to the corner of the bumper as well.[/*:m:1ulfi19n]
Front o/s wing is beginning to rust[/*:m:1ulfi19n]
Front o/s ARB bush and bracket have semeingly disappeared. Assume they got caught and torn off on a pothole.[/*:m:1ulfi19n]
For some reason it has an 'a front bumper, not 'b.[/*:m:1ulfi19n]
Minor rust on both rear arches[/*:m:1ulfi19n]
N/s drivers door paint is flaking[/*:m:1ulfi19n]
Exhaust it leaking, but that's an easy fix[/*:m:1ulfi19n]
Teardrop alloys have good tyres, but could do with a refurb[/*:m:1ulfi19n]

That's most of it; rest of the car is OEM MR2..... engine runs very well, interior is in decent condition. Ultimately, it's a 21 year old car. The only thing which requires urgent attention is the ARB.

I'd prefer it to stay within the club so it's currently only for sale here; take it off my hands for £750.

MMMmmm I would, but what with being in the middle of buying a house as well as working silly hours 6 days a week, I haven't the time to do it.

Make me an offer........... I can only say no! Or yes.... :)

Right - it's definitely going, so make me an offer. Needs to be either towed/trailered, or driven stuck in gear (unless you're handy at changing gear without a clutch).

I've had on tentative offer, just wondering if there's any more interest?
