The option you mention may be perfect for me. I just want a campo toy and though i prefer be road legal if i can drive on campo...

Re: Purchasing second hand car from private owner

While i have absolutely no experience of Spanish system i think apart from the fact that you need to be confident the car is debt-free all other arrangements are between you and the seller. As regards payment i think you will pay as per the sellers requirements so if they want cash... it be cash wit...
