Looks very nice and clean. Looks like it has been re-listed though.

Is it me or are the same cars constantly re-appearing on eBay at the moment?

1974 Italian Fiat 126 TA
1996 Fiat Cinquecento Sporting
2008 Fiat Panda 100HP

It was relisted as it only had two bids , both bellow the reserve , i contacted the seller and offered him £1200, he would not sell for less than £1500. I umed and ared all week and tried to offer him £1300 , he would not drop the price even by a quid , but to be fair i can see why, the car is beautifull.
In the end i knew his reserve was £1500 so i bid that amount . And won it , i collected it tonight.
Maybe i paid too much , but i realllllly wanted it . Apart from the drivers seat frayed as they all are and a blow on the exhaust and a small crack in the widscreen it is mint and has service history every mot cert and origonal bill of sale from 1991 for £3777.00 .
In the end its about having something you love , this is my 3rd bis , my 7 year old son and 3 year old daughter love them . I was gutted to sell my last one. And for £1500 how much can you loose?
I thought if i paid £600 for a crapper , even a respray would cost me £1000 as i cant paint , this one has perfect origonal paint.
Maybe you think im mad , but you only live once and it was this or a new motorbike and as i want to be here to see the kids grow up this seemed a safer bet.

As for the same ones turning up , i think there is a lot of crap ones about , which dont sell , or people buy them with all good intentions but soon realise that its a lot of work to polish a turd.

Congratulations on your purchase. I knew Steve and this car. It is lovelier in the flesh. He bought the car for £2k+. He did some lovely modifications to it including the webasto sunroof. At the time, I offered to buy it from him, but he wanted £2.5k. From recollection, he sold it to £2,250. He is now into minis.

 Cheers , i was a bit worried about buying it , as its a lot to pay for a toy , it is not going to be a daily driver , but i just HAD to buy it . You know when you stand there and think " if i dont buy this , i will never get the chance to own one this nice " so in for a penny in for a pound .

Fairly sure i would get my money back if i hit hard times
