Title: Is my old v6 cally still out there?
Post by: ultravox on May 21, 2017, 19:59:02 PM
I still miss my cally. I was lucky enough to have owned and driven 3..my first was the 2 litre 8v then a 2 litre 16v then a heavily modded 2.5 v6.
Was just wondering if anyone has seen it on the road. The person I sold it to took it to Lincoln but it hasn't been seen since then.
Here is a link to a pic.

It has not been taxed or MOT'd for over five years. As it is still listed it is likely that it is heading for "barn find" status rather than scrapped.  :(

Thanks for reply zodiac245. Just done a search myself. Found out the (supposed) enthusiast I sold it to drove it to Lincoln then apparently sold it a month after. My partner always wondered if it had been well cared for but somehow I think it was stripped for parts! The sound system was worth more than the car!! lol
