Yes I agree, shame, its repairable but it's to far gone to look A1 when done, could possibly make a good shell for an historic race car where originality is less important? shame really but I guess the parts removed have been used to keep other cars on the road.....
That blue 2600 saloon on ebay looks worth saving though, its a bit of a barge but its a very rare model and probably the only one in the uk
Good lyric that accompanies your post, knew i'd seen it somewhere before,
Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Ghost in You, Superstition 1991.
Into 'suds and the banshees...a man after my own heart!
