I forgot to mention that there is a load of service history with this car.

It has been a very well cared for car until recently. The lady who had it for years part exchanged it and the chap who bought it just ran it for a few months until the mot was up. He didn't wash it or spend any money on it but it's still a nice little car under the dirt!

Don't make me squash it!!!!

Top marks for trying to save it, mine was in a similar condition apart from a tired engine. Scrapped it and three others last October for £85 cash each collected by a local scrap dealer.

Could have got about an extra £20 each taking  them to the bridge myself, but not worth the time and hassle.

Come on people, don't let this Clio die!

Look into its sad eyesIMG_20180823_151425.jpg

Go on, have a closer look. Look deep into its soul. You can't let me kill it, you heartless bastardsIMG_20180823_151436.jpg

I fancy one of these, for me one of the last 'interesting' Renault's. I missed out on a very early one (J plate) last year which was a lovely burnt orange colour, sadly that went to scrap I believe. 

 

If I wasn't Maxi'd out I would have it, but I can't see myself having the time or cash for the next month.

 

Hope a knight in shining armour does come along and rescues her.

£300 for a small, reliable little runabout is a bargain. Hope it finds a home, can't see it taking long.

Bodywork is getting a bit thin but most things are still in working order. Probably has the odd leak. Several owners. No idea on mileage but still goes quite well I reckon.would do someone for a couple more years til something better comes along.

Well the French Quarter is filling up rapidly and any reprieve this may have had cannot happen now due to accidental C15 purchaseIMG_20180826_122908.jpg
If anyone wants this Clio then let me know before tomorrow as I'll start filling it up with scrap...

Re: the biff to the nose. How bad is it? I can’t really tell by the photographs.

If it were me, I’d list this up for general sale to the public. There are very, very few Mk1s for sale right now. I reckon you’d see about £250.

I appreciate you might not be arsed tho...

Cracked but repaired bumper. Barely noticeable. Bent but Behind the bumper. Not structural but is visible if you bend down and look between the bumper and bonnet.

Slight dent to front of bonnet but genuinely is slight. Non of this is an issue

Certainly not at this price it isn’t. I just wondered if my eyes were fubar’d because I couldn’t see any signs of a lost punch up.

I agree.

 

And due to the above (and the fact its time in French quarter has expired) it is being delivered to Norfolk in a week or so's time :-D

On Wednesday this happened...

 

post-19511-0-27543300-1537387676.jpg

 

Yesterday I polished a turd.

 

Today it looks like this...

 

N236EYA osf.JPG

 

N236EYA nsr.JPG

 

N236EYA interior front.JPG

 

I do feel a bit guilty that someone in Herefordshire would like half their farm back, but at least I'm not afraid to sit in it any more!

 

The mirror previously held on with angle brackets in the earlier photos had got knocked off sometime over the past few weeks, and the nearside headlight shed its lens on the journey to Norfolk.  I don't want to spend money until I know how badly it fails the MOT, so I'm hoping to bodge a Metro mirror on and that The Old Bloke Next Door will find a headlight when he returns from holiday.  However, if anyone else has either I'd be happy to hear from them.

 

It does seem solid underneath, although I need to give it another session with the pressure washer to get the rest of the mud off.  If and when an MOT is obtained it will go up for sale or cheap roffle; I'm not really expecting to make anything out of it!
