GRANDAD.......I was watching another Mk1 recently on ebay, in good nick too but more money than this one. When I did a search for completed listings on this red Mk1 in Leeds up popped the one I mention above. He has/had two and he states he got them from MX5city in both ads. Nowt wrong with that, I've owned 2 in my time and always looking for another Mk1.
Anyway that answers your question re the same vendor selling another ex MX5city car. But I asked myself, could he be selling them on behalf of the said company, who knows. He could even be a member of this forum for all we know, but nice looking cars, we may have missed a couple of bargains.
I met the guy who bought it yesterday, he got it for £1100 in the end. He says that it is immaculate and has indeed stumbled on a steal of a deal. He bought it in Leeds and immediately drove it 2 hours to Newcastle without any problems what so ever.
