    The first one has a very appropriate seller name.

    The second one has been used before. I know where the original seller lives as it's only a couple of miles from me and I recognised it when it was used as a scam advert last time.

    first one....current. bid of £820 is very generous judging by this.....



    Mechanics:
    It feels as it did when I first got it. meaning what...it was buggered then as well ! Has always been reliable, not broken down since I've had it.
    That being said:

    It does not switch off at ignition, but can be manually stalled with the idle switch. Why wont it switch off, and whats an idle switch ?
    Gears 1 and 2 are quite noisy, (something I've once heard call "gear roar". and i've heard it called 'gearbox rebuild'
    Brakes, more or less rebuilt in June '13. they either were or werent

    Body work:
    Paint job has some fading on both sides near the back where it has been "enthusiastically cleaned" rubbish...been over T cutted to get rid of oxidation or scratchs
    Fair amounts of rusting spots, mostly around lower edges of the panelling, around doors and joins.
    Doors:
    Drivers door - does not lock. why ?
    Passenger door - takes some encouragement to open. out of alignment/mechanism buggered
    Sliding door - opening mechanism broken but can be easily bypassed. how ?
    Rear doors - not used for a year, not very secure but has extra lock on it. very secure enough to need a second lock

    Cab:
    Main heating vents don't give out hot air. heater unit buggered ?
    Glove box is cracked and loose
    Interior light switch broken, but can be bypassed. how...twist the wires together ?
    No seat belt for driver/ probably unacceptable passenger seat belt. All four rear seats have lap belts. no official MOT then !

    Main interior:
    Carpeted to a basic standard, some rips, fading and probably fair amount of sand.
    Kitchen unit and beds home-built. (I'm also no carpenter)

    I think that's all of it, but there may be more things that I have not thought about or know about. im sure there is. :RollEyes:

    look at there feed back scores usually if it is a scammer they don't have a feedback score or seller history before we know it there will be sum kind of legal action against fun :Sad:

    third one...carioca.

    they should have read the original listing before 'borrowing' it for this one....

    it is still under manufactures warranty until 30th July....2013
