    Default Busted up C3 in Pickles auctions

    Economic write off heavy damage to front bumper but I would have thought with the cars age unless it is hiding something like floor pan damage that it was a repairable car

    that green is certainly a popular colour hey? Looks like the damage is not that bad but what about underneath. Even the bonnet looks pretty much ok.
    That person is not "green with envy" I bet.
    How much were they asking for it?

    For damaged vehicles there usually isnt a reserve, cars can go for 1$ to what ever some one is prepared to pay.

    Unfortunately, regardless of what they'd like us to believe, they run dummy bidders at these Auctions and if you stick the stooge with it, the car usually turns up at a subsequent Auction or if it's a real sticker it can turn up at another Auction or at another place like a C5 did a while back that hit a 'roo and did a few turtles or the red 16V we bought that ran between Pickles and Fowles for a while.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!
