    it doesn't drive well if it won't go over 55 .. :Doh:

    I think this will put a lot of potential buyers off.. and keep the bidding low

    it'll also be registered as a minibus.........did anyone notice the signage down the side ?

    People care association......sounds like a dial-a-ride type bus.
