GTK Posted October 21, 2015 Report Share Posted October 21, 2015 A trio of shoe boxes that is the history of every car I've owned has just gotten a redistribution to come nice neat box files and in the clear out I found a sheet of paper detailing an S2.2 I considered buying in 2002! Given the rarity I thought I might be able to find out what ever happened to it... just for kicks. Either way thought it was interesting in terms of values and the market. My notes say the following: 1981 W reg. Matching engine and chassis numbers Speedlines present "several" previous owners Midnight blue (paint/lacquer lifting) Carpet replaced (or possibly needed to be replaced) No previous work done Located in Marlborough "Bought from a guy in work" 100k miles Sitting for 2/3 years Auction started 4th Nov. 2002 By the looks of what I've written I actually spoke to the seller. I was serious about buying the car but I remember that between the way the auction went and exchange rate I thought the price became inflated. Also on the sheet is my exchange rate calculations for various prices up to my limit. My calculations start at Stg.£1,800 so that's obviously where the auction was when I first saw it. I have a memory if it selling for Stg.£3,300, I could be wrong but I'm fairly sure. Obviously in hindsight I should have bought it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
