oh, and I wonder if theres ANY samaras left in the uk? I cant recall ever seeing one.
There's certainly a couple around. There's one in some abandoned dealership up North that's apparently For Sale and there was an absolute minter doing the rounds on eBay for a while but they were after £1500-£2000 for it. I would love one, apparently absolutely horrendous cars but you'd be pretty much guaranteed to own the only 'done' one in the UK if you got your hands on one.
