This is quite embarrassing and for me extremely disappointing that after whole 2 days of owning Golden Sam I am forced to sell her...

 

I can hardly explain how it came to this but basically there's no convincing my wife.

Here's the previous two sale threads:

http://autoshite.com...afor-sale-£350/

http://autoshite.com...n-haz-vaz-2108/

 

The car:

Lada Samara 1.5 Sedona or if you wish VAZ 2108

2 or 3 door (however you want to look at it), what looks like some aftermarket kit, steel wheels, 4 Pirelli tires with loads of thread.

FWD, no power steering, no AC, manual choke.

MOT until January 16, just under 34k miles on the clock.

Quite a bit of non original paint but majority is in gold.

 

Drove over 200 miles on Saturday without a glitch or a problem. Semi-C has changed the master brake cylinder and radiator. I haven't had time to touch it otherwise.

 

Location: Manchester - I could deliver as train tickets are not an issue for me.

Price: As two days ago £350 - happy to consider anything as a swap.

 

Below some previous photos as I will only be able to get new ones at the weekend.

 

Bag yourself Shitefest Queen/King title :-D and help me save my marriage.

Will put her on RR and Lada forums only if it doesn't sell here.

I could also Raffle it if people want :D

My helpful* tip is: Man up!!! Why is it such a massive crime for you to have a car that you like (that costs less than a weeks wages)? Seems a great shame to me.

Thread title needs to read [For Sale] Wife....and that's it.  Seriously, mine used to complain a fair bit but one day I just told her to deal with it, this is what I do (for good or bad) and they soon get used to it.  Process of attrition.

Oh dear. My immediate reaction is " what's wrong with it", but it's a Lada- what is there to go wrong?

If you've bought it, and had a change of heart, so be it, but to blame the wife for your appalling taste ( you are on Autoshite, after all!) seems a bit mean.

If it was closer, I was more interested etc etc- but I've more than my fair share of rare old biffers.

^ that sounds like the ultimate solution if the badge was an issue- hit her with a Beemer ( Obv not literally)

I recon a sale outright shows your hobby is optional- a swap would be a reasonable compromise and still leaves you with a non essential but life enhancing old motor.

Shame, this is lovely. Is it the badge she does not like? I could send a Kia badge, they also made a Sedona and the likeness is uncanny.

It's not as good* as it looks in the picture.

Once you bring it home, your wife will see the error of her ways, and will* demand you go and bring the gold one home again.

Lovely car! In 1992 I owned a Lada Riva estate,which had the number J 284 BVG, so it probably came from the same Garage! A Norfolk (King's Lynn) plate, I think.

Just badge it up as something else. If you squint it looks a bit like a VW polo. Surely a Volksvarrgon would be an acceptable brand.

I agree. If you sell then it will set a precedent. She will have a veto on whatever you turn up with next. You should explain that being a shiter is like having a religion. It is part of you and you need to pray regularly at the shrine of automotive shoddiness.
