This was an unfortunate time in my life where I considerably lost the argument. I sold a 420 gsi Tourer in white, a 1.8t 75 saloon & 285. It was around the time I decided to shut my unit down due to it being a very expensive hobby location that i was down to visit once a week and with a circa £1kpm in bills for it, it had to go.

It was also the last time I sold any of my cars and I miss all of them.

That's just life, 1234dist. It broke my heart to sell my pride and joy a couple of years too, but I got over it.
