....My trusty R11?

Impending new arrival (and housemove....again :cry: ) mean that the Eleven is surplus to requirements, and will shortly be in the way....Was just wondering if any of you chaps would like it? I don't want anything for it, I just want it to go to someone who'll run it at least as far as it's next M.O.T. in September, and maybe beyond if it passes!

I have a work colleague who would take it I'm sure, but he's the kinda muppet who's first question upon being offered a free car would be: "What sorta service history has it got?", i.e. a total prick! My only concern at the moment is to ensure it doesn't get scrapped, or end up in the hands of an idiot expecting 12 months unlimited mileage warranty! :roll:

As I say, the car is tested until september, but I currently don't have it insured or taxed, so any new custodian would have to arrange collection.

The photo's flatter the car slightly, but there's no major rust that I can see....It always starts, although there is a "knack" and it has never let me down....It's slightly rickety, and certainly doesn't drive anywhere near as nicely as the R9, and there's a "knock" when the weight transfers from left to right during a roundabout (I thought it was the steering rack end bush, but it evidently isn't serious enough to fail an M.O.T), but it starts, stops, and drives....In fact a good service and the renewal of a few breather pipes/hoses would probably improve it no end!

Oh, and the tyres and driveshafts are new! :D

I love the car, but I can't just keep everything, so it has to go....The offer is open to established contributors to the forum only (or friends thereof) and is on a first come, first served basis, via P.M....If you're the first to P.M. me you get first refusal, and so on!

Please, somebody give my baby a good home? :)

Three P.M's received already, so chances are it's been snapped up....Thanks, all, for the interest! :wink:

Well, lets just say that the car isn't going very far....And it's going to someone with quite a fast "fleet turnaround" (three guesses? :roll: ), so I'd imagine that there's every chance that the rickety (yet strangely charming) old Renner 11 will come up for grabs at some stage! :wink:

Yup. One very happy customer here. :D It does drive well for a 25-year-old car, doesn't it? Very similar to the 9 Broadway I had a few months back, but somehow "tighter" - probably beacuse it's done fewer miles. I'm going to enjoy trundling around in it for the next few months. And like I said, when it does come up for rehoming, I'll advertise it on here first. :wink: Cheers Baz.

Yes and no. A mate of mine has it now and has nearly finished doing the MoT work (I think it only needs a number plate light now) but he hasn't paid me for it yet so technically it's still mine. So I own five old Renners at the moment, soon to be six with the Saviem.

Do you have to own them all at once or just had to 'have owned them' because Wuvs doesn't hold onto them long enough to accumulate them! :wink:
