Low mileage Celebration for sale

Cleaned up the garage, found parts laying around, but it turned out to be a complete Volvo 480? If you want to sell your car (480 only) you can place an advert here.

OK, so we've all discussed this one round and round and although we might have slightly different views as to whether it's actually worth £5K, it does seem as if it's a pretty good example!

So now I just have one burning question - is anyone on here considering buying it?

I'd call it practical - cars are for driving not just for looking at (unless of course it's Etorre's Bugatti Royal)
and why not drive it? :wink:

In the Netherlands they ask more for lesser cars. They would put this one up for five figures and it would probably not sell.
after over 10 years parted with the 1995 Volvo 480 ES 2.0
