When you say "crazy money" how do they work it out it doesn't show up on their online quote system, and it must be hard to set an open market selling price on a car like the Rallye. What did you have to pay on yours or did you buy it in this country.
Ps Are you bringing yours to Portlaiose?
Hey Dusty, I bought a 1990 Rallye last january in Manchester. It cost me £5,500 and I was quoted €2,000 to €2,500
to clear it. They mentioned a 'Classic/Collectable' on the phone the day I enquired about the VRT and when they came back (from their main office in Rosslare) the day after they had a value of €8,000 to €10,000.
Because the car is under 2000cc the VRT is calculated as 25% of the Market Value.
They only way they can determine this is by checking English prices as far as I know - since these were never sold here.
I think Glenn in Midleton Co Cork is still trying to sell his RHD one, €8,000 and fully registered.
There are shots of it from lalst August Show in Limerick/Fermoy if someone still has them....
