Anyone fancy this?  Fondly known to her as "that horrible thing", my neighbour bought this a few weeks back as a stop-gap car and it's no longer needed.  She is so attached to it that she has mentioned just scrapping it, which I won't allow as I'll step in before that happens.

 

All I know is, MOT until Feb 2019, it's the rorty 1.5 and has about 103,000 miles on it.  Bodywork looks straight but paintwork is tatty and it looks like it would very much enjoy being washed and polished for a change.  I'm not aware of any mechanical issues, it certainly works as she's been using it daily, she has complained of the indicators and wipers being the wrong way around but I would disagree on that point myself.  Your opinion may differ.

 

It's not that small but it is quite far away.  I can try for better photos if there is any requirement, these were grabbed whilst walking past it earlier and do lack a certain something.

I believe she'll want about £250ish for it but if there's enough interest in a roffle at around £3.50 I'll get one started.

 

It's located in Barnstaple, North Devon.  Train station is a 5 minute walk away and I might be able to assist with delivery.

I was offended by that for a minute.

 

And you know what happened then?

 

Yep. Fuck all.

OK, let's see if this has any roffle legs.  Outright sale would still be preferable as it has to go very soon but if this fills up quick enough I'll buy it off her for the roffle total.

Given that your neighbour would have happily scrapped this POS, I'd suggest 50p a ticket and a donation to the train fare of who ever wins of £1.50.

I don't want a ticket even at 50p though, because ........... CBA...........

I think the scrapping comment was not serious, she'd like back the £250 she paid for it a few weeks ago or something near, which seems fair enough.

 

I have some more photos...

That's very clean for a 16yr old Accent, and you rarely get them in RED.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

The interior is really, really, really grey.

I had one as a loaner a couple of years back.
It was entirely adequate.

Sorry, I have no interior shots to share.  As barefoot says though, imagine the greyest thing you ever saw.  It's a lot greyer than that, plus apparently it's a bit grimy.

 

Latest tickets added but I suspect this is a bad time to be trying this, there's a few others on.  I'll see if it picks up in the next couple of days though.

As I've never done any good in Roffles for cars I'd like, let's see if I do any better for this piece of crap that I certainly don't want.

We'll drop the roffle due to low demand but it's still parked outside if anyone wants to jump in with an offer.
