Guess the price. I'll give you a clue, it's a lot.

I bought my mx5 from this chap ten years ago and he was great - the most reasonable and least salesman-y person I've ever bought a car from. Unfortunately it seems that I probably won't be in a position to buy a car from his stocklist any time soon. But would totally recommend to someone who wants to blow £150,000 on a lancia.

Two wheels this time. Buy a £800 Diversion, take the paint off of the tank, chuch the front mud guard in the bin, wrap the headers and bung on a seat. And ask £2,500 for it

Wonder how often you will strip the skin off of your shins walking into it before the exhaust gets canned?

Hey @DavidB & @1duck both of those should have gone in the eBay Tat thread, this is mainly for massively overpriced old shit...if that Marina was £4000 not £400 it'd qualify for instance. (As it also could go in the "Just scrap it" thread)!

The "bargain" bit in the title is meant as sarcasm, and had it been written now, would have had the obligatory asterisk. 😁

Keep on shitin'

Yes that's a high price - but one day it will command such. This will be the next "Morris Minor" - I see more nova's than early poverty spec Corsa B's. I love it too.

We had these when I first started as a driving instructor. They were horrid! Couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding going down hill with a following wind! Steering, 4 turns lock to lock. Vague? Made my Landrover seem direct! Electrics, would eat rear brake light bulbs for a pass time. I then changed companies and went over to Metros. Much better car. 1.4GTA if my memory serves me. 8 valve but a proper little pocket rocket. Much better handling. Loved it.

Illegal plates. LHD - you could knock off at least 10,000 if you bought in France. 

I doubt the owner's ever been pulled for those plates - the Met's traffic section just aren't interested in that type of infringement.

Even so, twenty bags is one way of ensuring he'll be stuck with it for some time to come. It's a ten bag car, but no more than that. LHD not a help.

Actually they are not illegal.

It's a 79 car so more than 40 years old and therefore tax and test exempt but interestingly it also means you can ditch the reflective plates and put those on, despite it having reflective as new.

Cars with non-reflective plates that are meant to have reflective plates look utter wank and I will fight anyone who disagrees. 

My mechanic says that black and whites don't come up on police ANPR or in car parks.

Just had a rummage on the net about this and it seems it may be true. Classicsworld.co.uk/older plates confusing ANPR.

I didn't know that any vehicle now 40 years old can legally have black and white plates.

Never mind the forty-year-old mark, there are cars four years old out there that are carrying black-and-white plates.....although I've yet to see them half-hidden on the dashboard.

There's a garage up the road from me selling cars. They do seem slightly over priced though.

2009 mondeo £3k. 

2010 mitsubishi £3k. 

2009 panda £4k it is a 4x4 though.  

2010 saab 9-3 cab £6k.

There are a lot worse there as well.

I don’t think that’s right. They set a 40 year mark in 2015 - so as at 1975 - but it’s not a rolling date.

EDIT:

Actually that is right! Provided the vehicle is 40+ yrs old, you’ve applied to the DVLA, and have registered the vehicle in the Historic Vehicles class:

Comedy asking price for CX S1 GTi. 

I think this might be the same car that DD Classics in Kew were flogging for 25 grand a few years 

Loads of nice CX on Le Bon Coin at mo. In France they are not particularly collected - not treated as unobtanium as some think in UK. Why pay that much when you could have one like this LWB leather and wood hunny for €3000?  Even has black plates.
