Must be Japanese [...] What have you got?

 
I don't think this will relieve the not interesting enough problem... In fact they are probably really similar to drive.

Neighbour has a Pajero Junior manual that he's going to sell. Think he wants £2700 for it though, so out of my price range by a long way. 

 

I was looking at imports yesterday - how about a Nissan X-Trail GT? Looks like a normal X-Train, but has 280bhp. Probably about £3000 landed, but I'm not sure if anyone would want to buy it.

Oh man. That's hard to refuse! Sadly, with Bulgaria in the offing and the Starlet not sold, I fear I must. 

 

Alternatively, buy my Starlet and allow me to live the dream!

I love it. I don't love the price, location or the fact I still have the Starlet. Which I should just keep really. It's a decent motor. Which I've done nearly 2000 miles in already.

This is in the wee Honda's related listings and has me swooning, my parents had a base Honda Accord saloon, black bumpers and a carb, I was jealous of our neighbour's Aerodeck 2.2. The one in the listing even has local plates. Collection assistance available.

Sorry for the derail, you're not even looking for a car in the UK, for sale threads rarely stay on track here...

Quite.  I laugh about how miserly people are on here.  Did anyone ever pay proper money for a proper car?!  £1000 for a car that will, frankly, last forever is buttons.  

 

It's a sad reality: People know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Different strokes for different folks.

For me, this is the difference between Autoshite and Bangernomics. A grand would make no sense with the latter when someone on here will sell you a perfect car with full MOT for £62. But, if it’s unfashionable cars that were left field choices when new - then £1k is approximately 2 weeks of the average UK pay. For something that will happily trundle along indefinitely, then that seems like a good investment.

I think it might just be me though.

Averages are grand but they dont half wind up the plebs near the bottom of the curve. What Ive never understood is that houses are cheaper up here, but shit old cars seem to be cheaper in london (looking on ebay). Its like #bangernomics has its own black-economy that accepts no rules of overriding economies.

Cheap cars are more expensive where people have limited monies, as there is more demand for them.

Cheap cars are very cheap in expensive areas as there is no market for them.

Simple economics. I've lost count of the number of "cheap" cars I've bought from posh looking houses in expensive areas a lot cheaper than you could buy them from the centre of a shitty city somewhere.
