Sold The Hawkeye

Recommended Posts

Well thats me currently without a scoob after nearly 3 months of trying to sell it, someone finally came for a look and snapped it up immediately. Wasn't that sad to see it go, my heart was never really into it even after chucking some money at it, I just couldn't find the love for it.

So Im now on the hunt for another classic, originally fancied a Type R or P1 but also looking at 4 door saloons as well. If anyone knows of any nice examples going then let me know, as usual it needs to be a low mileage minter under 65k preferably.

Does mean I might miss Alford though next weekend.

Chris.

Good luck indeed.

JohnnyR6 really struggled to find a clean classic, 2 doors are nigh on impossible to source unless you're happy with tatty smokers or are willing to pay through the nose.

cheers folks, I know its going to be more of an uphill struggle than last time to find a good one but fingers crossed something will fall into place.

Three options at the moment:

1 - Project car, cheaper to start with but a bit of a money pit - not sure what yet but a special edition.

2 - Mint P1 - would make me happy straight out of the box

3 - Something in-between - nice RB5 on Pistonheads in North Scotland, but guy wants strong money for it, its almost Type R money.

knew you werent taking to the hawk so think you did the right thing before you sunk too much into it trying to make it behave like a classic (here speaks experience :whistle: )

now go find a nice P1 and grin all day long!

Yeah, I knew it wasn't to be with the Hawk, even after fitting the coilovers and alk I still found it a bit of a barge. Luckily I managed to recoup what I had sunk into it apart from the labour costs from RA, so I feel pretty pleased about that. I stopped modifying it at just the right point.

Project idea - scrapped, so on the cards so far we have:

1. P1 - waiting to hear back from current owner

2. v4 sti classic

3. JDM Blobeye ( yeah, I know its not a classic but its at the same sort of money as a P1)
