Bump for a bit more interest.

Had one inevitable banger rally 'humorist' make me an offer on it (not the chap on the AS Facebook page - he wants an auto) so far. He was literate and polite - more than some of the other zany comedians that have approached me so far.

Still got a few potential leads, with a concerted effort being made in the New Year.

If anyone's keen, PM is the thing.
The £600 is not negotiable unless you're standing in front of me and the car with a lump of cash a very good reason as to why I should drop the price.

If your 1997 Fiesta is "Powered By Fairy Dust", why the fuck are you panic buying 60 litres of Diesel?

An auto could be for sale in a similar price region, if he asks me politely enough.

 

The usual this forum not being what might have been rhubarb applies, though.

Out of curiosity, why is there an 'L' at the 70kph mark on the speedometer (on the pic of the dash above)?

It's a lovely-looking thing, and if I weren't already at 6 vehicles, I'd be v tempted.

It's the max you should drive in low with the automatic version.

Right, let's have some more pictures.

 

The price is still £600 because it will soon have a new clutch to transfer power between the wheels and a proper gearbox (one can shift it faster than a tectonic plate, it's marvellous).

This is an adorable little car and looks just as nice in the flesh as it does in these rather nice photos.

5 speed box, cheap tax, classic insurance it's ideal as a cheap little 2nd car for pottering about in which Is different from a Corsa or Ka.

Be realistic. Autoshite is hardly the biggest audience in the world, and a fair few of the motors that change hands on here do so for a fair bit less than £600. I'm not saying this little honey is overpriced, just that if anything, it's probably a bit too nice. That said, I think a lot of Japanese cars are like less-famous French cars - tricky to rehome in a hurry. Mind you, If the world of writing generated realistic income, I would have been on this quicker than a very quick thing. It is lovely and three-pot Daihatsus are fabulous.

Also the problem could be January. I have about 8p left until Friday and I guess I'm not the only one.

Yes, but....

I am being realistic. The car isn't a dog and it's fairly priced. And this is Autoshite. The process of me being realistic means I am now looking at other options.

You can't blame people for not buying your car though. Sometimes, cars just don't sell when you want/need them to. I think my Saab 9000 was one of my biggest struggles to punt on and that was a lovely thing. Other times, stuff can sell almost before you've put it up for sale. Sometimes the timing is just right.

Well priced but well rare means it's always going to be a tough sell, even if you were to offer it at half the price.  But you know that already.  In fact, there's nothing I can say here that you don't already know or believe.

 

If it's any consolation, I wouldn't try and sell any of my current fleet on Autoshite, I doubt I'd get the money I'd want for them even if I was asking reasonable figures.  I'm happy enough to buy here but I have no confidence in a good result from selling.
