    Being a Thatcher mobile, I thought it would have some historical value.. perhaps a museum piece..

    seems a shame it may be sold and turned into a burger van :(

    or maybe that is karma..

    Like most things Tory. Old, clapped-out, overpriced and useless.

    Great comment,

    Apparently it's in good condition, but it failed it's MOT because it pulls to the right and has no reverse gear.

    If it's longer than 23 foot 9 inches it'll never sell.
