    Really sad, but you did your absolute best to avoid scrapping it.

    ETCHY got a reaction from trigger in Road trip to Wales for the Marina Nationals   
    That orange TC is sooo cool, I always thought those wheels really lifted the Marina shape. Is that a TC in the abandoned garage ?
    A mate of mine had a white 1.3 Marina in the mid 1980's, it cost him £150.00 from a bomb site car lot.  It was pretty shagged but it was a real laugh. I well remember trying to jack it up & the car not really moving but the passenger seat starting to shift a bit ! Kids now will never know the joy of owning something not on a PCP that's truly fucked

    Great little cars. The blue rinse image doesn't do them any favours but they're surprisingly brisk & fun to drive (if a bit wobbly in the corners)
    They just go on & on & have real character. Far better than the K12 that came after.

    Keep it.
    You know the car inside out as you've had it from new. Get rid of it & you'll regret it. They're worth in financial terms about the same as a packet of crisps so it's not like you'll make a fortune on it anyway.
    K11's are great little cars. Honest unassuming little motors in a way that a Figaro or Cube will never be.
    I reckon Mikey should stay with you

    That cross member looks good.
    Nice little Micra you've got there. Change the oil regularly & keep on top of any rust & it'll just run & run.

    It's in bloody good nic ! Earlier type dash too.
    The sills always go, they had no proper drain holes. Sunroof cars are the worst.
    That sill damage is weird, I wonder if someone has used a jack of some sort on the edge?

    Cool, I always wanted the Monaco.
    I'm sure It had some sort of mental back parcel shelf that you could store things in (it had a zip on it) .
    The leather interior looked uber plush on these.

    Hello
    Newbie here finally posting something 
    Nice old mk 2 R5, I had the 5 door automatic version of that, drove well & sodding comfy !
    Be careful of the bleed screws in the top hoses. Some genius at Renault thought they were a good idea but the hose perishes around them. I know as I once came back from a run, opened the bonnet & had hot antifreeze & water just miss my face when it split !
    Cheers

    Hello all
     
    Newbie shitter here
     
    I don't currently drive anything that maybe qualifies currently as autoshite (KIA Picanto 2 automatic from 2017) but it's definitely future shite & with all the brand snobbery about many average motorists will possibly regard a KIA as shite anyway  .
     
    Previous car was a 1998 K11 Micra 1.3 CVT, now sadly departed. I've had a Metro, Capri ,Renault 5 & a Ford Anglia in the past.
     
    Blame Hubnut & his video's for me being here.
     
    Cheers & happy Easter.
