Rusty nails on start up?

Saw 3 more cars over the weekend.

They all had same problem is this a common fault ? On start up sounded like starter motor wasnt engauging properly or not connecting with fly wheel correctly.

One had been rebuilt and had new starter motor ?

All interior panels on coupes creaked like my knees !

Most came with the usual C&B stories

The spider will sell expect around 1000 because of summer but don't think either coupe will sell as over priced - Y reg some history 2500 ! W reg silver nice car with good history 1300

I think for what I've seen. The ones I'll look for are

V6 silver or red high spec lusso - pref red or black int 65-80k with good history


Spider silver or black - black or red interior upto 80 k service history

Both cars need all the usual work done - bushes - rads- clutch - belts

Don't think I find one at right price

My valuation would be 2600 - 3000 on V6
And upto 2000 on spider - at these prices they may sell from my limited experience everyone is trying to sell way above and in FACT not selling

When I see a 8-13 yo spider for 5k just laugh they'll still have that car when I retire might've what theyre aiming for !

Waffle finished
