    Can anybody comment on this?

    I have no experience with this kind of thing, but I see a set of spare alloys, probably maybe decent seats, and if there is a good engine and tranny in there a lot of value for maximum $2,900.

    Between my two 80s (make that three including my brother's) I'll be needing many parts over the years.

    By the way I will not be offended if, if in fact it's a good deal,somebody grabs it. I'm in Queensland at the moment and can't really act on it.

    I saw that yesterday and actually thought about going to take a look at it. Doesn't look like a roll over. Would be a nice source of parts or possibly a builder.

    Yep looks more like a police chase survivor. Let me know if you inspect it.
