That's handy! Many years ago when I had space I used to be a bit of a car hoarder, wish I still had that luxury now - having a spare donor is a real life saver :)

Thankfully most of the donor parts I can get from non monaros. I managed to pick this one up for next to nothing but I'll never get another that cheap :P

Mmm, used to be the same for me with classic Triumphs - got a few for £40 or less back in the day, now even completely rotten complete cars are worth hundreds.

Ah the good old Triumphs! They are still fairly cheap here. I had one as one of my first cars.

That's a lot of car for $70 :) I had a '63 Mk1 2000 (positive earth, booo!) that was rotten but free, and four Dolomites with various engines. I still have a soft spot for Dolomites!

I've only ever had 2000s and 2500s, they were very common here and don't rust like they do over your way :P

Picked up another junker for nothing for a few more bits. All new rear springs and shocks, fuel tank etc. Passing it onto someone else afterwards for nothing, still plenty of usable bits :P

There's still a few 2000s about, but yeah most of them dissolved :-(

Looks like that was a good score for free ... those front chassis legs look almost like new!

Still see a fair few of them over here! It is a lot warmer and drier here :P

The old HX donated many usable parts to help with the rebuild.

A piece from here, n a piece from there...

Seems almost a shame to cover up the harlequin paintjob with black, lol
