Guess the Asking Price 'Season 4' competition.

Simply guess what the sellers asking price was for these Mk1's!

£5,545 for me!

1986 Cabriolet (long resto!)
1983 Cabriolet (daily pain in the bum)
1983 T25 (weekend pain in the bum)

Whatcha peeps,

Nearly missed a round and it's only the second week! Phew close run thing.

Now then going back to ~Mattnsusies extra point…… Nah only kidding  :P

So this weeks offering then.
Good points - all original, it's in re-sale red, all original docs and books, correct number of doors, correct type of roof (can i possibly insult anyone else at this point  :lol:  ) Original decals
Bad point - some dodgy painting of stuff, can't photograph for toffee…..

Erm but this one is from 2015 so the price is likely to be lower than last weeks, it's also the most horrible engine ever so I'm going with……..
£3450 ish.

Is an 'ish' ok? :P

Morning all and well, well, well we have a three way tie for 1st place!

Now I thought that car was a little harder than the first but clearly I was wrong.
A note to myself, make car 3 a bit more difficult as it's all to easy!  :lol:

So onto the results.

Week 2
The Asking price was £4,250

Joint 1st Place                  ant5                                              £4,750  :ocf_emoticons__notworthy:
                                             Hairyarse                                    £3,750
                                             Raul                                              £4,750
4th Place                            golfman16                                   £4,875     :ocf_emoticons__eusa_dance:         
5th Place                            Mark Gardner                                  £5,000     :ocf_emoticons__alright:   

So there you have it.
Now if we were to take an average of the prices put forward we have the following results.
Average Price was £5,025 (+£775) compared with the asking price of £4,250.

Well I think that's a darn good effort considering it's only the second week, so time for me to do some head scratching and think about the next car.

So well done to all the winners this week, we've had on a few occasions a two way tie but never a three.

New league table will be coming up in the next day or two.  :thumbs:

Well Ian I see this as we've had two home games at the start of the season and now it's time for an away match. 👍🏼

I've heard from the weather forecasters that it will rain heavily tomorrow morning before the match and although it will stop before the whistle blows but the top surface is going to be very greasy! 😉 😂👌

I wished Ken, that was a pain in the butt to line up the text so it looks logical. The website doesn't recognize a 'Tab' to align text.
So you have to keep furcking about with single spaces! 😕😉

Great to see three winners but I'll have to make things a little tougher tomorrow, just for fun of course! 😉 👍🏼

Guess the Asking Price 'Season 4' competition.

This ‚€~game‚€™ is teaching me a valuable life lesson. I should stick with the day job rather than attempt a career as a wheeler dealer. Thins time next year….I would be living on the streets!

I blame my eye sight, double vision I think 👓👓
Sure there were 2 cars for sale hence why my guess was twice the actual asking price 🤷🏼‍♂️
