    Well. That sounds like the absolute worst fucking idea ever.
    And that's coming from a man who daily drove a Triumph Dolomite. Twice.

    With the allegro sold I now had a 1977 Chevy c10 and a Nissan micra on the fleet. 
     
    I’m all for a noisy American toy but that micra. Actually I like k11 micras for their chuckability but decided I needed something a little bit nicer as my daily….
    Hence I’ve sold the micra and bought a 1992  merc 220ce. In “Nutra” - named after a semi aquatic rodent. It’s metallic brown basically. Probably a very unusual choice in 1992, long before it was rediscovered by car buyers.
    Its also been very thoroughly gone over.  All the stuff that rots or goes wrong has been sorted. 
     
    Anyway here is the rodent brown merc coupe

    About 20 years ago I was tasked with driving the lovely Miss Messenger and newsreader Jan Leeming to their homes after a Ball in The Dorchester. Both were very very drunk  and the conversation was quite bawdy as both had just got divorced and we’re having a ‘ dry spell’ Only one of them propositioned me when helping her into the house.
    Clue, if it had been Melinda, I wouldn’t have run away !
    To keep this on topic, £7000 for a feckin Metro that needs welding and an engine rebuild, Id have to be even more spectacularly drunk than they were.

    Agreed, but if they were near but hadn't been in prior contact, how 'in' where they in the first place? I'd have taken it back brimmed, valeted and with an appropriate gift according to their likes.

    I’d have to ask them why they thought it was your responsibility to fill the diesel up.

    Keeping away from mercs and some vag stuff ,15k will get you something reliable , economical , safe, won’t need welding  and be good to drive .
    A metro is none of these

    If you really want one, it would be better to spend 5k more on a good one. That one sounds like it will be £15k before you are finished.
