And now for something completely different, my first ever Skoda!

 

I was going to try and piece together a collection thread for this, but the only thing that happened driving my Visa there was that it rained heavily on the A14, so I have just added it to my notes.

 

The rest of you missed out, what a fantastic car! It's clean, tidy and instantly usable. It has Mrs 6C's seal of approval and she drove it home 100 miles. I asked her what faults she had found and the only thing she could come up with was a broken clip on the driver's sunvisor.

 

Thank you Stanky and Mum.

Well saved. Absolute bargain. They're great cars and boringly reliable. It says a lot about our society that a perfectly good car like that can be deemed only fit for scrap. (Vaguely...and stupidly...thought about trading in my mk1 vRS a while back. Dealer didn't want to know).

I'd send it back, sun visor clip situation is completely unacceptable. :mrgreen:

^^ This.

 

It never fails to astound me how little value is placed on stuff like this.

 

Looks great by the way, respect to Stanky (and his mum) for facilitating

You don't have to be a hardcore greeny to realise £100 cars can't be available forever. But, who knows, maybe it will go on like this for a while as electric slowly replaces ICE.

Never fails to astound me how disposable "old" cars have got. Cars being written off now because all they need something like a clutch doing?

Skoda now in lay-by, which might seem the unwanted area off the drive, in reality it means quick access to it without moving stuff.
