This thread has been inspired* by the one on PH discussing the merits of a £170 toaster :o But this is Autoshite, where that sum should be sufficient to put you on the road so here is the challenge - what is the best car that you can find for £170 that is MOTed and can be driven a reasonable distance before FTPing. A virtual pint for the best answer, as decided by popular acclaim (other cars than Ford or Triumph are eligible of course ;) )T

 

To start the ball rolling here is a Rover 75, with sufficient change left to buy one of Tesco's finest pop-ups

Funny enough my brother brought a Car last week that fit's the bill! A 2003 Fiat Seicento Sporting. Mot'd for 6 weeks and Taxed to get us home all for a £100.  :-)

Could do with some tlc but is a fully working car and drives A1, if we had let the previous owner keep the tyres and sourced our own we could have had it for free.

Cheapest toaster in Argos is £7.49 so let's set the car budget at £162.51 :D

One car for £170? That's not a challenge.

There was a mk3 mondeo on gumtree last week near me, £170 decent mot and apparently ok but with a "high" clutch. Could* have been a great buy- a good all round banger for the money.
