I have been offered what I think is a good buy......but is it??

An E reg Escort Cabriolet Ghia, 46k on the clock, FSH, alloys, and its cleaner than a hospital operating theatre! This is a MINT car 8)

No road tax on it though :roll:

Seller wants £900 for it.

I am thinking buy it, SORN it, stick it in my garage and sell on it Summer 09 at a profit (after poncing for a week or 2 if the sun shines :lol: )

So, do I buy or walk away???

Its like this:

Do you live in Essex?
Do you habitually wear white stilletto shoes?

If the answer to either question is "No", then walk away as fast as your little legs will carry you.
