  1. I've bought a few like that (cars rated by the car magazines and enthusiasts) and found the same as you. After a few months of trying to pretend I like them and buying accessories to keep it them mint condition, they've been punted on at a loss just to see the back of them. The amount of money you're talking about it quite large but if you've found that you actually do have cheap tastes then that's a positive. Do you think the focus might have more appeal as an occasional car when you fancy a bit of adrenaline?
  2. I was getting so confused by talk about mot’d 2cvs for £1000 and low book values. Like the parallel universe of autoshite.
  3. This isn't going to be the most insightful comment, but my brother recently took a 2004 185 bhp manual up to 220k then upgraded to a 2007 163bhp auto which had done around 120k. Subjectively I don't think it charmed him like the old one did and the MPG was worse than he expected. The ride was harsh until he'd done quite a few suspension bushes and it didn't end up as quite the bargain mile-muncher that his previous one had been. I reckon if he went back he would spend the money on his old one rather than buy a new one that wasn't quite significantly newer. I realise that dilemma isn't peculiar
  4. One to go with SOV13T that I used to see on a RR Sport.
  5. If everything goes to plan I hope to get it in a week or two. I can't wait! I'm not sure how complete it is at the moment though.
  6. Did you see a yellow Charleston in the corner by the door? (It might be at the body shop though.)Fingers crossed I will be joining the citroen ranks of Autoshite in the next few weeks!
  7. My neighbour told me yesterday that he used to have a Tudor Van. I hadn't heard of them before.
  8. That’s really interesting, datsuncog. I’m glad you like it. Have a picture of my other paramount model:

  10. I would like a new one too - is anyone making them at the moment? Either the AS ovals or the dealer sticker.
  11. That’s pretty bad for you to see. I sold my immaculate mk1 mx5 to an 18 year old (with their dad to be fair), and I’m deliberately avoiding all the places I might see a picture of what’s happened to it. I could be completely wrong of course.
  12. I will stop clogging up the thread with my wares soon, I promise. Would anyone like this lot I’ve got left? £4 plus postage?
  13. That calligraphy will stand you in good stead. Good luck.
