    Really, oh dear, I had better sell it. I have spent over 40 years repelling any thoughts of being cool, I didn't think buying a Maestro would land me with that nomenclature!

    Maestros are what all the cool kids are buying these days.

    Did they really call that silver colour "gold"? Project Drive had an example set to it already then..

    This is my other car which I have had on the road for a couple of years. I have done a pretty shonky repair on the front O/S wing but will get it properly done at some point soon. Would like to get the seats repaired at some point.

    Hello all, it's been a long time since I have posted on Autoshite. I hadn't visited for a long time but have been lurking for the last few weeks. It seems I have missed a lot of fireworks and sadly several old faces seem to have disappeared. 
    Anyway I thought I would be brave and post my latest purchase, I have my old car mojo back. It seems that the cars which seemed to get the most interested when I joined over ten years ago now seem to be not so popular. 
    I have recently been running an Austin Maxi and my Renault 5. The Maxi whilst solid needed a respray and some bodywork, I have sold it to an enthusiast who has the money to get the work done, I didn't want it to rust away. I have just purchased this Maestro which has been off the road since 2005. It is one of the last Mayfairs with the 1.6 S series engine. It has optional PAS fitted which was quite rare on Maestros.
    I haven't seen it in the metal myself, these photos are from the marketplace advert. I am having it transported directly to my mechanic so he can look at what needs doing. Apparently it doesn't run after a previous keeper changed the carburettor. At £500 though it seemed to good an opportunity to miss, I have been wanting another Maestro for some time, it has only done around 52,000 miles.

    It drives well. Quite nippy with the 1.4 engine. I had to put a new oil cooler on the gearbox though  after an FTP. Thought I'd killed the box, but after cooling down and an oil change, it was fine. First start after winter hibernation the engine temperature got a bit hot and the mot is up, so it's off the road just now.
    My maestro is under a cover in a shed too.

    This is where it currently resides, as my garage is now full of Morris.  Think I've been pushing my luck doing car tinkering in the communal parking area, not that I should care but I do.  That's another reason to shift it, no room.

    I'd had the same engine (I think) in the phase one Clio. 
    Always thought of it of a bit of a warm hatch. Quick enough for what it was. 86hp from the single point injection so it was poky and fun to drive.

    Phoooar one chodtastic Maestro. My dad had a couple back in the day, an A reg one after he got his licence back after a drink driving ban, silly man, then later a G reg one, though I don't remember the A reg one as I was only about 3 at the time. He had a couple of C reg Montegos as well, a saloon which I barely remember, then a blue estate reg C441 MWE which I loved.

    Thank you.
    That is true, I am surprised at how much prices have risen in a couple of years.  I have been quite lucky in finding ones which seemed to have had little interest.
    The Renault only cost £250, I think partly as it had a rusty wing and ripped seats. Also it has a sunroof so didn't attract the OMGturbo reshell brigade. 
    The Maestro seller had reduced the price down to £500, I think partly because it is a non-runner although I am "confident" it is a minor problem.
