    On my weekly trawl through eBay/Gumtree etc I stumbled across this,

    It was half 4 in the morning, (as I work nights) but I didn't care I text it straight away and guess what!!!! It's sold.

    But then I was lookin on ebay and found this

    Same car, getting all broke up for bits.

    I don't think the original owners had any idea of its value, as the advert said it only needed a clutch.

    Just shows if you are at the right place at the right time and some good fortune you can grab a steal.

    yeah looks like he bought it knowingly how much its worth in parts.. as much as I would love to save it.. I think it will help other Type-Rs with its part and hence become immortal

    The car probably has kaput gearbox and lots of rust, so might not be worth saving, which is a shame, the numbers on these must be dwindling.
