Evening all!

Up for grabs is this bright green Ford Ka!

I bought this a few years back for my (now thankfully ex) wife to learn to drive. After she decided she didn't want it my brother had it from me as his car had failed it's MoT.

When I had it:

The Facts:

2007 Ford Ka Style
MOT Until 27/06/19
About 77,000 miles
In Stratford Upon Avon with my brother

The good:
The car is in good condition.
It runs well - engine is smooth and Ka's handle surprisingly well!.
Not a huge amount of rust - even round the fuel filler cap!
My brother has spent a lot on it in the last 6 months it has had
* a new clutch
* new rear wheel bearing
* Two new front tyres
* New heater matrix
It's very green
It has been cared for well.
Custom decals

The bad
Custom decals
Did had to have some repair welding in the last MoT - was done to a decent standard, but it is a Ka - this won't be the last time it needs the sparkly stick! But to my knowledge there's nothing imminent.
Small patch of rust to the drivers side arch
Heater is either on hot or off. probably needs a repair to the switch.

The price: My brother has it up for £750 on Facebook. Shiters discount applies so £650 to any of you lovely lot!

So overall a fun little car - super if you're anything from 19 to 90!

This seems to be as popular as a dose of the clap in a long term relationship...

But I’ll give it a bump anyway. It’s a good little car!

Never driven one -been passenger in a few...VERY tinny...almost biscuit tin like quality..

BUT I have a soft spot for them, very good looking when first released, but I think they missed out on a 'hot' version with the Puma engine, would have made a killing i reckon

They are fun enough as it is, they are good for well over a ton on the clock (on a closed private road occifer cough) and handle superbly. The rate they rust means decent ones will be worth a packet in a few years.

Remove the stripes and bang on some silver wheel trims and it'll sell.

If you're going to have a funky car, have it in a funky colour.

That’s how it was when i had it... my two brothers between them have come up with its present vision of stripiness. I suggested they use decals to turn it into a Luigi car from Mario cart... I bet that would’ve sold...

Heater fault will be the control valve in the pipes on the bulkhead. Easy to change and cheap

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.
