I once did that after a CV Boot swap and I'd not nipped the arb link up quite enough.

Well I had a fiddle with this tonight and found a drop link that wasnt tightened up properly. Nipped it up and silence was restored. Drives lovely now apart from slightly noisy brakes which I'm sure will pipe down with a bit of use. Anyone fancy this? Full ticket, new cambelt, its good to go. 78k, cheap tax, only faults are parcel shelf missing and stereo faceplate missing (so no choonz). I'm going to try hawking it round the internet for 600 quid but would take a chunk off for a shiter.

 

I must point out this has been MOT advised'for 'widespread corrosion underneath' several years on the trot prior to me getting it, but after washing 250kg of mud out the wheelarches it doesnt look particularly chronic to me, just like any old jap car of this sort of age really. Only ever had 2 little bits of welding on the outer sills (one of which has just been done by me) so its hardly a disaster area.

This is the only real rust to speak of on the bodywork, theres some bits of surface rust underneath but nowt particularly alarming.

Thats some 'Daily Express' style sensationalist language the tester has used to describe the underpan of the Mazda, almost like the oldest car he has ever inspected is 3 years old. I suppose it will filter out the types of timewaster who are expecting a 20 year old car to look brand new, mind.

Hardly on a par with my mates Mazda 6 on a 2008 , failed miserably with a welding quote big enough to send it over the bridge , pretty good bodywork and immaculate interior . He was majorly not happy

Those pipes will benefit from a wire brush down and a coat of stonechip. Can't quite make out whether they are brake or fuel lines, if its the former they look very crusty.

I have looked at the MOT history and now I see that it was the previous testers and not your man down the road who ripped their knitting over some of the (age related) minor corrosion underneath. So thats a good result indeed.

That's fair enough. I tend to take mine to the guy in clay cross. I know him from my motorbike days. I find it tricky to trust places though and rather go where I know. I've a trustworthy mobile mechanic and Dave aspley off here also gets my cambelt jobs!

It looks very smart that. Mazda's 323 range in the 90's is baffling they seemed to change it or add new models to it with various weird engines every 10 minutes.


I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

Well I have got this on FB, gumtree, the blue forum, car and classic and Autotrader for £500 or so for the last week and would you believe I have not had a single enquiry of any sort, not even a '£100 2nite' armchair dealer-type. I guess its perhaps too old to appeal to someone who just wants cheap wheels but not old enough to get anyones 'retro jap' juices flowing. I will keep nudging the price down and see how we get on but it doesnt look like this is going anywhere fast!!!

I've started to wonder what people want for £500. I've sold cars in the past at that money and its been a pain to be honest (not through here mind) with people quibbling over whether the air con works or does it have history etc. It is what it is.

I know it may sound weird, but have you tried asking for more - say £1000? People can be very suspicious of cheap cars. I've seen car dealers often shift prices up and down until it sells.

Do you still have the "barn of dreams"? What criteria do you use for stashing cars away? I'd have thought a nice example like this might be worth a little bit in years to come - small, hatchback, red, looks a bit sporty?
