Those price valuation thingys make me so cross. It seems that they are either wildly low (looking at you Parkers) or completely and incorrectly inflated to make Quentin seem like he's in the know.

Fifteen minutes on car and classic/ ebay/ car purchasing medium of your choice and you can get a real idea of what prices are

Quentin most definitely has a vested interest in his advice! Don’t get me wrong, I find him entertaining and I enjoy reading his columns. I met him once, he was warm and engaging. He was always my favourite Top Gear presenter in the good old days.

When it comes to buying advice, I prefer listening to this chap. Solid gold words from the current Car Mechanics mag.

I'm sure there must be an £11,000 MklV out there, but it's definitely not this one.

The awful half arsed interior and jammed sunroof would be enough to discourage me from looking at it as anything but a project, but those "new" tyres  look fucking ridiculous , presumably the proper size were too expensive, like doing the interior properly. Makes you wonder what's under the new paint.

Oh God, they're awful, truly an awful abomination of a car, my dad had one he didn't die in it but I'm sure it took 10years off his life !!

I do get the impression that he buys up all of one random motor that he can find, wangs the price up by a couple of thousand then writes a column about it. You're right though, still a good read.

Ahh..... Like those two newspaper 'financial pundits' who tipped-the-wink on a 'coming chance'....

.... and got caught at it [taking futures] 👍

Poor man's MG 6 (Proton Gen-2) for five and a half bags, tickle anyone's fancy?

1.6 automatic? I bet it sprints off the line like an arthritic tortoise. That's been flipped onto its back.

2006 Toyota Corolla for the princely sum of £5495.....

Bloody hell. :blink: Back in August/September 2010 I almost bought a 2005 1.6 VVTi Sport 3 door for £4995. Actually seemed quite cheap at the time (wonder if I remember the price correctly of if it had a tough life). It was up for sale at a Toyota dealers as well.

Electronic Stability Program (ESP)...Traction control...Alarm...

Same spec as mine, it has none of these. ESP wasn't even available, it was ASR, and no-one ever bought it as an option on the 1.2 12v.

But it is a bargain Ferrari. 😉

Never heard of the NY500 museum so looked it up. It appears to be a cafe/meet up point. With a garage attached.

So wrong ! Where do you start.? Can’t even get Reliant Robin in the right order.

I can only assume Ferrari’s legal bids are too busy laughing to actually stop them calling it a Ferrari.

@Metal Guru.... "I can only assume Ferrari’s legal bids are too busy laughing to actually stop them calling it a Ferrari"

I wonder if it has a 'gag sticker', in the rear window >> "Don't Laugh, my OTHER car is a DeLorean!"

👌

Iirc* this was a badge engineering exercise by Maranello who, lacking a small fibreglass three wheeler in their range during the early 80s approached Reliant to provide one.
