Live Collection of Unsaleable car.

Recommended Posts

Truth is, I need to free up some space. I've got this Audi 80 coming and have just bought a 190 with sexy red interior.

This is a cracker - no BS.

MOT until June 2018. It had 2 advisories - 1 trivial and the other fixed. L576 ABJ for details.
1.8 Automatic. It has the super reliable 4 speed box which is smooth AF.
Everything, by and large, works. The fuel needle reads empty for the first 10 litres after which it's never an issue.
Tyres probably have 5mm all around.
Even the air con works!

It runs and drives perfectly. I bought this when I thought my Avensis was on its way out. However, I underestimated just how attached both my wife and I are to the Toyota - so it stays. Probably indefinitely. I've done 2000 miles in it up and down the A1 and it's bob on.

You want to make it perfect?

There's a small hole in the ns door mirror.
The paint is a little thin in places
Someone bought the wrong green and a part of the rear os quarter is slightly the wrong shade of malachite.

 

In 249 malachit grün with the gingercators and flying saucer trims, it really does look like a facelifted 190.  These are very similar to their predecessor (you can compare and contrast with both of my cars if you wish)

Probably too dear at even £10 because Christmas and other raffles running.

 

It’s a shame, as it is a good one. Just one MOT fail in 12 years which was on ball joints.

 

I would really like another Raver 75; I keep going back to them - which means they’re probably what I ought to have. In the meantime this is for sale/swap or raffle should that gain momentum.

 

Thanks for everyone’s interest nonetheless.

PBK expressed interest in this earlier, and he has two 75s...   ;-)

 

Good luck with this anyway. It does look very nice, however I think you are right with what you are saying about Christmas and the number of other roffles at the moment. Nonetheless, please accept this as a free bump.

Sorry, Barefoot. That’s my bad entirely - and should have been clearer.

 

I’m between Cambridge and St Neots. A1 and A14 are both 10 minutes away and the East Coast Mainline is easy from almost anywhere. Happy to collect /anyone from station.

 

I’m using it daily atm and have done 500 miles this week alone. No hassles or issues to mention at all. Heater is the hottest I’ve got in the fleet.

 

If it sells that’s great. I’ve got a replacement or two pencilled in.

I really want to rationalise my fleet down.  But I keep looking at this with a huge want.

 

Unfortunately, it's green, and my Mrs hates green cars.  My Mrs also moans about everything so meh.

 

It's also not a Jag XJ.

 

I know all of that is very unhelpful, but best of luck with the sale.  And it's a nice part of the world where you are.  I've got family in St Neots :)

Aye, it’s nice here. The village we live in is actually a bit too stuffy at times; especially if you like interfering with disappointing motor cars.

 

I don’t see this car selling at anything over £300 tbh. I gave the lad more than that and have spent about £400 on it but that’s life.

 

I’ll probably just keep smoking it cheaps until MOT time then take a view.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
