I know they're not to everyone's taste but I really like them.
I believe this one has been for sale for quite some time now

It's not, it only just came on the market in late December. Andrew was going to keep it but I guess he has been told he has too many cars again :lol:

I think he put it up for sale when he bought it and then changed his mind.

It's tough to be fussy when there's only 3 known such cars in existence, but I don't think the exaggerated rear end works well with the narrow body. The wide body versions however... :drool:

I wish, you could get the DP Cargo attention to detail, on an Artz CGT style shooting brake
but then I cant afford or rally, any of them so it doesn't really matter

That has been the debate since the car arrived, the wider body looks better however this is the only narrow body car.

Easier decision on what to do with this car....

What does this mean? Break it for parts? :sad:

Why not make it a wide body, (and paint it white like Steve suggested)?
