    eBay tat volume 3.

    Thanks Marvin's mum for the above link; I wouldn't have found it in the cars section (rather than classic cars). It is actually solid underneath, so I have agreed to buy it! Seller is sorting out getting it re-registered as it's been in France for the last 5 years.

    This struggled up to £500 at ACA on Saturday. A wash, polish and bit of underbonnet detailing and three days later it's on ebay for £2295. Good luck. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Very-rare-Renault-Laguna-2-0S-RTi-16v-51k-1-former-keeper-Fsh/254267144920?hash=item3b3380bad8:g:oJQAAOSwMXZdB789
  3. All of that is a valid opinion, and one of the reasons I wanted to sell the 1100 is that it's the one car I've never really done anything to; it was bought as a good car rather than an orphan and whilst I have some good memories of it I'd rather get one of my others into a scruffy bvt useable (rather than fully restored) state. I had it advertised elsewhere for more than a month at £3595 without a nibble. ACA always seem to get good prices for nice cars so I took a chance selling it through them purely for financial reasons; I certainly had nothing to hide. It sold today for £4100 before fees.

    They're looking for a quick £500 profit. It sold yesterday morning for £710 (was on my watch list) and has very quickly moved from Sheffield to Bracknell.

    Check the MOT history. That will cure you (this time at least). I particularly like the advisory " Fuel tank cradle heavily corroded; recommend do not fill "

    I'm tempted to buy this..... https://www.gumtree.com/p/peugeot/limited-edition-eden-park-peugeot-806-/1343228918 ......just to sit in this and rest my head on a rugby ball.....
  7. I've only entered one roffle before, but I'd definitely buy a ticket or two for this when the time comes.
  8. Fingers crossed the punters at ACA on Saturday agree!
  9. And to bring today up to date the turquoise Allegro now has a shiny new MOT. It failed last week on two tyres (I should have looked at the inner sidewalls!) and emissions. Three quarters of a turn on the mixture screw (HIF carb being a late A+ model) had it spot on.
  10. Volvo 850 also speculatively for sale: https://autoshite.com/topic/36038-1995-volvo-850-glt-estate-25-10v-auto-mot-may-20-£750-west-norfolk/
  11. Renault Scenic now for sale; see ad in for sale section. https://autoshite.com/topic/36035-2001-renault-scenic-16-16v-mot-dec-£375-west-norfolk/
  12. My Austin 1100 is entered for next week (although whether I'll be there as well probably depends on whether they give sellers free entry!). The lower end of the estimate is the reserve set by the seller (at least it is in my case). I'd assumed they'd want to see the car before accepting and listing it but they've just gone on my description and photos; I'm not sure what they'd do if when delivered they discover it's nothing like the description. I've been pretty unimpressed by their lack of professionalism so far, so it will be interesting to see how next week goes.

    Yes, £570 per year. And it's not been MOTd since 2012.
  14. Relatives of mine were in a similar position last year. We discussed a number of options, most if not all have been mentioned above. Then, unencumbered by rational thinking, they went out and returned with a Kia Venga. I expect the same hoots of derision on here as I made at the time. But, I have to grudgingly admit, it packs a lot of interior space into a compact(ish) size, is a bit higher than most cars and has particularly good rear leg room. It has certainly fulfilled their needs.
