as a personal aside a green car is offputting enough but that green interior is a real deal breaker. Just a personal comment though .

I personally think prices will drop a lot more as we Brexit. It doesn't matter unless you have to sell. I have restored two car s now with labour and parts you are looking north of £50k, and that's if

That green interior is fantastic and identical to what is in my car (or will be when its rebuilt)

It's getting there......

It's a Marmite car for sure, some will fall over themselves for it while others will be repulsed. 

I drive a Disco too Paul btw. Originally as a workhorse while I restore my '73 Range Rover, but I have to admit I've fallen for the Disco in the meantime.

Actually I get the RS61 it is a propper Porshe not your 911 rubbish with the engine the wrong side of the rear wheels. The RS61 has always been on my want list. There were so few ever built with even fewer being made for public consumption the closest us mortals will ever get is a replica, be sure to buy one fo the proper fakes not the ones made from a beetle, as they are just wrong. 

You would think that cars with a proper Clarke connection would be worth more, but I still think it is the way the cars have been kept in the past and the tattiness of a lot that are on the market that puts buyers off spending big money.

Looks really nice. Love the colour, the early boomerang dash, the monoblock wheels. No mention of mileage though. It would need to be low to achieve the asking price.

I went to look at this car (the 29k `97 car advertised on Ebay) three weeks ago and was bitterly disappointed it had many problems that needed putting right, as the guy was asking top, top money I would have expected it to be in tip top condition, sadly it was not.

308 GTB is a beautiful car and the Esprit just isn't, can't say the Ferrari is worth that sort of money though.

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.
