Maybe if we all chipped in a couple of quid we could win it and then all go round en mass and smash the fuck out of it in his driveway with sledge hammers then just walk off.

I'd be in for that. If we can do the smash up on my weekend off(every other weekend). Stockport's only a six hour drive for me...

It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

1972 Volvo 144DL

Christ someones done alright/lost out on this!, It was only £100 on here a few months back but sold tonight for £746 on the bay!

You would think, alas the owner spend quite a bit getting it running and through an MOT, I would think with his insurance no money has been made! Nice car though, quite frankly it deserved to get more.

This is the kind of thing Charles Bronson would drive around in whilst playing the role of a renegade cop (late 80s Cannon Films era). It'd be his personal car, which would see more action when he ultimately gets thrown off the force or whatever.

I suspect that should be in the ebay bargains thread. £3995? For a white E32 7 series with the wrong wheels and some seriously fucked-up blag Alpina stripery. There was a dude on PC trying to flog a genuine Alpina 7 for £800 for about a year.

That Maestro is spectacularly poor. the lad has simply downloaded a 'cliche list' of cretinous generic VW mods from 2008 and applied them to his Maestro, taking 20 pictures at every stage then sitting back waiting to get rimmed by his 'old skool' fanbois:

Fucking awesome Jay, only you could get away with that

I thought a 3-door escort estate was a combi, i'm fairly certain the 3-door van thing was sold as a Combi at least.

OK, so skimming through that forum.... Rich Kid "Jay"'s dad buys £300 Maestro, in pretty good nick, from an owners club. Daddy then gives Jay car, so as far as he's concerned it's free, which means "not worth anything". Jay then sets about proving what a cunt he is with every tired styling trick in the book. He actually seems a pretty good fabricator and knows what he's doing - see the gearlever from welded chain, and knocking up a roofrack from bus seats. Sadly his skills are used for twattishness, not Good. Jay's burning desire is to get a 306 (oh, the life he leads) so cares not that he's ruining a perfectly good car by covering the inside and outside in tat, taking off the good paint, chopping springs and making it as OMG LUK @ MEE as he can. And then wonders why it gets broken into..... but fear not, as soon as he has the 306 he dreams of, he's going to scrap the Maestro. But not before he's had a paddy at anyone on the forum telling him it looks shit.

Don't get all the anger over this. He's young, maybe a bit of an idiot. Lot of us were when we were young. So he's having a bit of fun with an old motor which ain't worth much. Chill out gang.

The main thing I don't understand about people who ratlook cars they don't like - if they drive alright and they've got some test on, why not just sell them and put the money towards something you do like? I just can't begin to understand the logic behind it.For example, I'm not a massive fan of Corsas, but if I ended up with one cheap I'd be valeting it and sticking a price in the window. The only wire brush/rattlecan interface would be me tidying up the steels.Perhaps some people just don't like money.

Zackly. He's fucked about with a Shite Old £300 Maestro. He's not the first, he won't be the last and at least he's done a half decent job of making it look how he wanted it to look. If he hadn't ended up with it it would more likely than not ended up being either sent over the bridge of doom or into Scrappage. It's obviously 'rat-look' and you never know, that might keep it on the road for a few more years than it would have otherwise managed. It might end up in a shed somewhere for 15 years and emerge to a riot of Autoshite love. If I was an 18-20 year old lad and I was given a Maestro, I'd quite probably do something similar to it. Maestros aren't cool - not even the Turbo. The majority of the young folk don't get the whole Maestro vibe (and rightly so, in my humble as I don't either), to them it's a shite old embarrassment that's quite probably older than most of 'em. Put it this way, if I'd have taken that Maestro in p/x before it was ratted and it didn't sell for more than scrap value in a week or so, I'd have sent it over the bridge myself. I'm not the only one.
