Title: Whats it worth!
Post by: TiddlesRX7 on July 10, 2017, 12:28:42 PM
Afternoon peeps. Been a while ain't it! Hope you are all well.
So the question, what are the FC's going for nowerdays? Its hard to judge as there just isn't many left anymore. I can't decide what to do with mine. I'm finding it hard to get enough time to do the work required to get it back on the road (little bit of welding and then put it back together for MOT). Brakes will need looking at cause its been stood too and a new battery but she still runs ace  :) :great: I've not lost any of the love for the car and just seeing its arse when I open the garage makes me smile :love4: but with so much other things on going is it time to let someone else enjoy it? Do I fix it and get it on the road and sell it? or do I sell as is?

HEEELLLLPPPP!

Ade

Suppose I should have given some info on the car for those who don't know it or remember it. It's a UK car 1990 T2 coupe circa 100k with engine rebuild at 60 odd k. FC specific apexi pfc, greedy Elbow, hens teeth top mount ic, stainless exhaust etc etc running around 300bhp.
I might also add that this is not something I am defo gonna sell. I've always said that it will out stay the wife  :13: but now I'm not so sure. Guess I kinda need some motivation to finish it more than anything else!

If I could get at it and get it out of the garage then pics and fixing it wouldn't be such an issue! Lol unfortunately children have come along and wifey has kinda booked it in the garage with kid stuff!

This is what has got me thinking about selling it. You just don't see coupes coming up for sale very often. There seems to be more verts around than coupes so in the right condition (as in on the road) the coupes could fetch more is my thinking.

If you don't need the cash now though as it's a appreciating asset why not sit on and watch the price appreciate further?
How many are now kicking themselves for selling cheap a couple of years ago when they look at current prices. If it we're me I'd be getting it running using it sparingly so its seen out and about but make it known it's available for the right (too good to refuse) offer.

Been thinking about the car a lot recently. Im thinking wait till spring when he weather is better (famous last words) and drag it out and actually fix it. Drive it around for the summer and then if I can bring myself to advertise it. I've been given clearance from said wifey mentioned above to fill the void left with motorbikes/man cave type stuff so all is not lost! Just not sure I will be able to bring myself to sell it when the time comes.

Great to see you posting again Adrian  :13:

Good plan to get it back running and use it next summer. Hopefully you'll decide to keep it, but at least it'll be running and worth more if you do decide to sell.

Nice flames in the vid :great:
