    Harry's Garage Silverstone auction GS in sale.

    This is exactly the market we are dealing in (well sub 7Kish) - low owner, low miles unmolested petrol cars C.1995-2005. Just perfect for the school run, station car park, supermarket etc. Cost very little to run, look fantastic, get lots of admiring looks as retro cool and are an absolute...

    Anybody knows this car or looking at buying it, SK65AGO?

    Interesting stuff. I suppose if you still at HPI Check then you are insured against this (though only up to £15K if it is found to have been a write off) and it will capture 9/10 cars. Not sure what else we can do, but thanks for exposing.

    GS rear brakes
