Is that a Diamond?  Has it got the badges on the wings?

It is a Diamond.

That is my blue estate and it isn't getting scrapped. I had to move it as I was blocking the gate, so I put it in front of the Diamond while I took the pics.

If you look carefully, there is rust appearing on one of the arches. Also on top of one sill it looks like there is the start of rust.

Overall, the car does look good, but appearances can be deceptive, as I found out with my Diplomat.

Good price!
Unfortunately I'm just as financially embarrassed as you at the mo, but if they are still there at the endo of the month I'll be ordering them.

We just had a new fridge freezer, which we paid cash for. Had the Diamond estate appeared before we bought the fridge freezee, then I would have bought the Diamond estate complete and got the fridge freezer over twelve months on interest free.

I'll have a nose round when its a bit warmer. Wrong wheels and wrong colour for body bits and a saloon but something should be useful. Good spot landbarge.

Got home with no trouble but thick fog all the way. Fortunately there was not much traffic on the road. Thank goodness for cats eyes in the road. In a few places there were none and then you could see the advantage of them.
