You could have my Rover for that kind of money and I know which one I'd like to own, I paid £500 for my last MK3 Escort 1.3L in 2012 and that was immaculate with 44k on it.
Aye, but it’s like everything innit? Time marches on. As we’ve seen in just the last month - £500 now buys you a decent MK5 Escort. A nice MK4 is four figures, and a MK3 is probably £2k with 3 doors and good provenance.
£3.5k felt like he was changing his arm a bit.
Realistically, I don’t need another car. But then I don’t need the 5 other ones I already have either...
