    Suspicious of the mileage. Those seats have been well sat in.

    The only problem is that they're not collectible.

    The pricetag wasn't surprising once I saw who was selling it.

    I'm with Druk, those seats look pretty baggy for only 20k.

    He does get some nice stock, but does look 'optimistic' on the price of both cars!

    Never going to happen but always a chance of a deluded mentally unstable person with more money than sense.

    It is correct. Mine were insured as future classics - that doesn't make them collectible.
