I bought a saab 900 convertible because the sun was shining and thought I'd sell it in the summer for OMG millionzzz, but I can't be arsed. I paid £275 for it so would like something like that....

Despite rattle in engine it drives OK, you can get an engine on ebay from £100-£275 so it's still worth doing, they're an £850-£1750 car in summer.

It's blue, it's an auto and the roof goes pop at the touch of a button.

Car is in Wickham market in Suffolk

Can you define "clattery"?

Talbot Horizon?
Mk1 Fiesta?
9" coach bolts in a washing machine?
Skellington wanking in a metal dustbin while rolling down a hill?

Could you just live with it or is FTP imminent?

Sump sludging? If so, needs to be cleaned asap to prevent killing.

It's had an advisory on an old mot to say it wanted 2 litres of oil adding before the test, that's probably why it sounds like that.

Possibly but possibly not as mics pick up and distort sound sometimes to the extent a quiet engine can sound like it's crackered

And it was a turbo too, this one seems more repairable I think, at least it drives!
