For that kind of money I'd quite like the heatexchangers to be connected.
Not for me at that price, unless it used all nos parts - which it hasn't.

Magazine feature alone is worth £10K and it will pay for itself in show winnings. :roll:

£45.000 for a 62 rhd they can dream on, but 80k they must be plain crazy. The problem is thieving scum see these crazy prices and think vws are a good nick

The usual comment "it is only worth the amount someone is willing to pay for it", although the advert is recent I do remember seeing this for sale some months back.

Clearly no takers at €95k but I wonder how many years it will stay for sale, sweepstake anyone?

Hi Just to let you guys know this bus sold to Chris Packham from springwatch for the asking price, just goes to show what a well sorted bus will fetch.

...which ultimately is relative to your disposable income.
A lot of people buy cars that cost more than my house, but in relation to disposable income an Aston Martin could be the equivalent commitment to buying a Ford Mondeo.
