Nice early-style ZX with MOT 'til next February! 73,000 miles. £200!

Needs exhaust work - take a bean tin, some jubilee clips and plenty of gun gum.

Avantage too so not quite pov spec! A whole exhaust from euro car parts for that probably wouldnt be more than £70! 1.4  is quite nippy too if you give it some revs, mine felt like it had no more at 95 though.

a grey Escort.  But it is a mere £175 with a bit of T&T and no obvious problems, other than the rather large one of being a grey 1991 Ford Escort.

With the Suzuki swift and it's 8 days mot . If it has a failure then it has no mot . Most people don't realise that these days once a failure has been issued your off the road. The vehicle has been deemed unroadworthy and is all logged on the system as such. Be careful out there .

The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

About 15 years ago I recall many new/nearly new Puntos knocking about at good prices. I was told there had been too many imported apparently. There were shed loads knocking about, now they're at the end of their life and there's still a glut.

Yeah, very possibly, slightly misinterpreted the aim of the thread. I think the first one will struggle to bust the 200 barrier but the other looks fairly tidy and I would think some lucky* teenager will get this as their first wheels for around 350 or so. Very sensible choice too

If we include spares or repairs in this thread then around half of the Clios and Puntos on the bay will qualify!

I think they already do (or did). Sure a guy in Romford had a 1300 base model with full body kit but couldn't afford the wheels at the time so it rolled about, booming exhaust and stereo with 155's providing the traction.

Might have been a fiesta, either way it was bollocks

I disagree . Mot is valid for the hour of inspection .

A gov approved vehicle inspector has inspected the vehicle and deemed it unroadworthy and told vosa about it .

If you fail an MOT 11 months after getting a cert, you still have a month left. Type your reg into the gov site and it'll tell you as such; that's the same database the plod use so you won't get pulled.

That's why you can drive it home, book it in for some repairs, and still drive it around for a bit. I've never heard of anyone getting into bother doing that.

Worst that can happen is you get pulled for something else, police inspect the car and find it to be unroadworthy - that has nothing to do with the recent MOT fail, that could also happen the day after it passes.

I like the bit in the Matiz ad ,that says; 'Currently parked in South West London,hence low price'
Is SW London that bad? Or is it a treasure hunt, you get the keys and have to find the car?
I think I'd rather pay the £200 and leave it in SW London.

Its up to the individual of course but when I did my tester training I was told that once a failure has been issued the old cert is invalid but you can still drive it home etc. Imagine having an accident and plod finding out it had failed.

The MOT has always been valid from its issue for 12 months.  If your car fails, say because your sensible and present it a month early to allow for work, the original MOT is still valid.  VOSA/DVSA have always danced around the issue, but their training is and always has been, that the MOT is still in force, though the driver may be deemed to be driving an unroadworthy vehicle (by the Police) if he is later involved in a collision.  Even a Cat C or Cat D write off still retains its current MOT status (no matter what certain Insurance companies may tell their customers).
