'just bloody scrap it' - the eBay 'fuck me, what were they thinking' thread

Recommended Posts

He's asking not far off what its worth if it didn't look an utter mess!attachicon.gif$_571.JPGhttps://www.gumtree.com/p/renault/renault-megane-diesel-estate.-non-runner-spares-or-repair-/1160462663No shit Sherlock.

Will need to be transported

And a dustpan and brush.

I bet if you turned up to collect, the lazy scum bag owner will still have the smashed glass and remains on the road.

3) It's 700 sheets - ha ha ha

 

From, guess where -

 

Oldsmobile produced various Diesel engines from 1978 to 1985. Sales peaked in 1981 at approximately 310,000 units, which represented 60% of the total U.S. passenger vehicle Diesel market, but this success was short lived. Sales quickly declined over the next several years as gasoline prices dropped. Additionally, the Oldsmobile Diesel had gained a reputation for unreliability and anemic performance that damaged the North American passenger Diesel market for the next 20 years.[2][3]

I bought this P4 80 off of Ebay for its engine, which works fine. The seller was going to restore it but had second thoughts. I've found myself wondering what his first thoughts were.

Things get worse underneath. The normally hefty lower wishbone has bent through 45 degrees explaining the wheel's odd camber.

Finally the chassis. You've got to admire the optimism of the person who tried to patch it. The car was last on the road in 2006. I'd guess the dampers were flailing about for quite a while as the top chassis mounting brackets have disappeared completely. I'd have been insulted to have come away from the 2005 MOT without at least an advisory.

Not as far gone as most on here, but you could at least make an effort before putting the for sale sign in the window. Oddly, has been up for sale on the Isle of Doggies for many weeks. Yours for £750, mot till September.
