Forgive my ignorance here - been out the country for too long. What's the procedure for these council garages? Any criteria to be met etc? I'd be well up for one or more. Then I can justify buying something utterly stupid.

Well I just phoned the guy at the housing association (the council by another "independent" name), and asked them. They sent me a short form, all you do is list what you want to put in ('old car tat') and tick the box saying you won't use it for commercial use or be a pain in the arse, return the form and collect some keys.

You just apply for one I think. They are only supposed to be for storage and there will be a list of rules as long as your arm but they are unlikely to be enforced if you keep a low profile and pay the rent. I'm not sure if you have to be a local resident but it shouldn't be too hard to get somebody else to apply for you.

The Miafiore has a bit of rust, but my Dad's one had way more rust than that in 1984 when he changed to a Carina II.

Same for me. Plus when the neighbours saw me "moving in" they were sure to reinforce those points too. :rolleyes:

Crikey this sounds like a good prospect - the optional 5-speed manual, tax and test, cambelt done, not rotten, just needs a few bits of paint by the sounds of it. £795! Sounds ace to me. I bet those 2300 ones are a nice enough compromise between power/fuel economy, especially with a 5-speed box.

Mine was a 2.3 and it was pretty heavy on fuel. They don't actually go bad at all but I guess you're working the engine that bit harder that it guzzles more than it should.
I thinnk the 5 speed is stock on series 2 cars. I know series 1 2300's were 4 speed and I think they didn't get PAS either!

I reckon the 2600S is the SD1 of choice. No thirstier than the 2300 and, with a manual box, snapping at the heels of a standard V8 in terms of performance. Sound nice too, and apparently more robust than the 2.3.

I had a 2600SE and it was worse on fuel than my much missed Vitesse.That straight six lump is abysmal. V8 is the only way to have an SD1.

I watched an episode of the Sweeney tonight, there was a D-Series Ford truck a Luton Transit with the big arrow, a Mk 1 transit library van type thing, an 02 BMW, one of those old Audi wagons with the twin headlamps and of course a six cylinder Granny.
It was shitetastic.

If it stayed very cheap the purchase price could probably be offset by using VW scene tax applied to those wheels. :wink:
