Hi everyone, guest forum member here. Apologies if this is the wrong place to post, it seemed the best bet for local advice before casting the net wider.
My dad passed away in 2018, leaving behind a 1994 Mk1 Mx5 that he had been working on until he fell ill in 2016. The car has been garage-bound since mid 2016 with little preparation for such a long dormant period. I know that the battery is dead, and can assume that petrol, oil etc will need refreshing if not entirely draining, cleaning and replacing.
So, we’re currently at a cross-roads - do we invest time and money in the car to get it back to road-worthiness, and then sell it on? Or do we cut our losses and find someone willing to take on the car as a project?
The car is located in Hungerford, Berkshire, hence posting to this group for local advice. Would anyone be able to provide details of trusted garages/mechanics, and/or would anyone know of someone who might be interested in taking the car off our hands, please?
Thanks in advance for any advice received!
