That's sad to hear Rob considering how much money you have pumped in to the car. Whoever buys it will no doubt have a good motor at your expense!

I know the tools will come in handy 😀 But can I sell my car on here. Currently it's on Autotrader and Gumtree.

I will still be active on here. As I will be asking my mechanics questions as usual. The cars just become to costly for me to keep. I am going to look at some cars today and see what I can get. Thinking either German or Japanese cars. Any recommendations?

Rob whatever you get then don't plough all your money in to it like you have done with the park lane. Only change Parts that NEED IT! Motoring isn't cheap buddy and you need to be smart when running a car

Thanks Sean. I've only changed parts that are needed on it anyway. Main one was the clutch. Plus the service parts.
