what a shame !

When you spot a 480 and wonder if it's someone from the forum: ask it here! One rule: do NOT post registration plates.

The second car on this ad is an early white turbo - from the pic it looks in good condition, can't see any rust on the wheel arches. So sad to see it broken !

Yup, he’s on Facebook - seems to be breaking a few at the moment.
This is what happens when spares are worth more than the whole thing :cry:

It is a shame, he did try to sell both of them as whole cars. I had a stainless steal exhaust off him, nice guy, at least he is breaking and not just scrapping. He's happy to be helping keep other 480's going, but yes, always sad :cry:
