Help iano50

Greetings from Cork Ireland, having previously owned a 155 and a 156
I am thinking of returning to the fold again, only this time I am doing it the hard way. I am looking at a '97 2ltr 16v 155 in need of repair, it is in a pretty sad state, cracked sump, wing mirrors gone, only one red key that opens drivers door and fits ignition nothing else, no remote fobs, oil leaking from the top somewhere, back shocks gone,
boot badge missing, 104000 on the clock and presented in a lovely shade of pink. Am I mad or is it possible to return what is becoming a rare car to its former glory? Any advice welcome, if ye think I should let it go please be honest. I am sad to say if I dont take it it is heading to the scrap yard. Thanks

Re: iano50

It's a shame that in your country you drive on the other side of the road and the steering wheel it's also on the other side, otherwise I would suggest to buy a nice 155 over here in Italy (they are currently very cheap as you can find a lot of them in good condition). This for shure would cost you much less than to rebuild the one you proposed.
In any case, if it is worthy for you go for it!
