Did your 205 GTI end up going across the ditch? :(

I remember seeing your other cars in the listing 😅

yep, the '94 205gti-c went to a buyer from Perth.  He's a happy chappy!!

 

The Peugeot was moved on to make room somewhere for the replacement car.   A JDM.......

1985 Toyota Corolla Levin AE86.  A rust-free survivor with a few needs. But I don't think you will

find many as original as this one.

I can see your car choices are not too shabby, either.

Is the Megane a 250, 265, or 275??  My nephew had a 250 and it was a terrific machine, but devalued

quickly. I can only imagine how good the 275 is......

It’s a 275. It’s very fun to drive. 
looks like it will be the last of its kind.

crazy cheap 275 up for sale atm. would love to buy one..

That does look like a good deal. Really low kms for a car that age. 
I nearly brought one that shape but ended up with the 135i instead. Just needed a bit more space inside to make it practical for work.

my initial thoughts are that 275 Trophy is a LOT of car for the money.

But reading the description that says it was imported from Aus as a statutory write off would probably

explain the lower than usual cost. And may well affect is saleability over time. In saying that - you would never know

by looking at the photos. It looks terrific!!

True I didn’t read that far. Coming from oz it may have just been hail damage?

I also didnt see that part. No wonder its way cheaper than what it should be. Its interesting how much cheaper these write offs are taking into account the cost to buy then to fix, they still manage to turn a profit.
