I would say that unless the car has undergone some kind of restoration or led a very charmed life indeed, it will still need a good bit of work to bring it up to a good reliable standard.

Though maybe I'm just too cynical. :lol:
I am sure i will find more rusty parts, so nothing wrong what you say.!

A car known to us, owned by a member on here, spotted yesterday at "Go Japan!", Brands Hatch. The owner was sadly not to be found, no doubt busy enjoying the car show and track activities in the lovely weather :D
