I know this is rather a tricky question, but what would this car be worth do you think? I ask as my wifes aunt has what I believe to be a Eunos S-Special sat on her drive moldering away and wants rid of it. She's would let me have it, but unless I sell my Jag soon, I won't have space!
It's not in great nick, and (if it is an S-Special) doesn't have the original wheels either. But I'd like to get an idea of what it would be worth for her as otherwise it may be scrapped which seems a shame.
Here it is. It was MOT'd until about a year ago I think. Notice the yellow strut brace.
Shout, shout. Let it all out. MX5's is what we're all about.
wannabe: I've had both front bearings replaced on the missus' car over the past few months and it's STILL making a droning noise... lol. Need to check if the mechanic actually replaced the correct one the second time I took it in!!

FFS Corders: Are the wheels straight? Buckles can cause a drone

wannabe: Hmmm... That's an interesting idea... no wheel wobble on the missus' car, which I would have thought was a strong indicator of being out-of-round, but I guess they could be bent side-to-side..??

wannabe: Ooooh, interesting - thanks, Howard. I'll have to get the tyres swapped round to see if it makes a difference! I will be most annoyed if it is tyres, seeing as they are only a few months old...

howardb66: If it is the tyres, don’t chuck them away, try getting them shaved.

V6: I had an education in dampers today. I like expensive ones. Floaty, not bouncy for the win.

Zed.: that all depends on what you call 'expensive'
