I only buy cars for less than £3K. E39 540i 4-piped specially for Greta. Lexus RX400H, well got to have something reliable in the stable. Clio 1.2 mark 2. Good runner £700 knicker. For my son who’s not interested in cars. Favourite car? My long gone but missed VW scirocco MK1

Anyone rates a Mk 1 Scirocco is a person of exquisite good taste.

Hi chaps

I have quite a fleet of autoshite - mostly MG Rover or Rover group... or what eventually became Rover.

2x MGFs

2003 MG ZTT 2.0 CDTi

2003 MG ZR105

2001 Freelander 1 1.8

1967 Mk3 Spitfire

and a few others... erm... can't afford a coat, otherwise I'd go get it now.

Welcome Rob.

For the benefit of others I have known Rob for a few years.  He has been very helpful with the diagnostics business, is a really nice fellow and an absolute expert on MGFs and K series engines.

Hi all,  I'm Paul  from Barnsley.  Currently  have a driveway lacking in shite but hope to sort that. 

Quite enjoy the sporty Peugeots,  have owned a ropey 205gti, mk2 RS2000 and a £150 Favorit Estate at the same time.  

Love what I've read so far,  the for sale section and eBay tat thread are tempting me back home and out of my modern soulless box.

Welcome to the pleasure dome!

Cant afford ebay? You could start off small and look at the shite in miniature thread.

Hey I'm Davy, from Edinburgh and I drive a 15 year old Volvo S60 D5 which I have owned for two months now.

 

Used to be the person that wanted a newish car to pootle about in ( do own a 2017 Skoda, wife's car) but for the last 2 years have owned some Autoshite cars.

 

Nissan Micra from 1999 lasted about 2 months before the MOT Inspector sent it to its grave.

 

Fiat Stilo Abarth lasted a month before the Autobox went belly up and the garage I bought it from took 2 months to fix it but hey lived the Fiat life of Fix It Again Tony!

Moved onto a BMW Mini, loved that car but sadly the wife hated it as I spent more time modifying the Mini and going to shows.

The Volvo came about as I was looking for a project one to take to Volvo600 next year so when I said I would sell the Mini I found this at the same dealer, sold the mini to a friend and bought the Volvo. For 15 years old it's been well cared for aside from it has a PAS leak! 

 

Heres a pic of my old girl!

Hello I am Daniel from Sheffield

Love old cars mainly Rovers currently own two never owned more than five at once. I usually buy them knackered and dirt cheap in an attempt to save them from the crusher. I either successfully restore and save them or fail which results in them being crushed anyway the wife and kids leaving me for a week only to return once i promise never to buy another Rover again.... Only for me to go out and buy another months later after the wife's calmed down.... You could say i am a glutton for punishment :D

Hello from sunny West Midlands. Proud owner of a reliably dull mk2 Focus I think. It's so dull I can barely remember it. Found my way here via Hubnut. Fancy an older car as a project,  best car I ever had was a Citroen ZX.  Would love another. Everyone thinks they are rubbish but it seems like you lot understand...

I am beginning to hate it. It's everyone's friend but nobody's friend if you know what I mean. It's reliable. It handles pretty well. It's a Ford so it's got the respect of everyone, it does everything well enough. It's British so the England flag wavers like it. But Ford can be American or German too... It's a 58 plate but nobody notices how old it is. It's respectable and anonymous, almost invisible.  Maybe I should paint one door red or something.  It's automotive porridge. With water, not milk. Definitely no sugar. It's so boring but too worthless now to bother selling and I can't be bothered dealing with all the chavs who would be queuing up to buy it for 100 2nite m8 so I'll just keep it until it breaks.

AFAIK all Focuses/Foci/whatever the hell the plural is are all built in Germany. As is documented elsewhere I love mine, it does all I want it to do and has been on a number of long trips, on a couple of occasions 600+ miles in 2 days.

Morning all

Long time follower of Autoshite but this is my first ever post, so here we go.

Don't currently own any shite, but have owned plenty in the past including some lovely* vehicles from Cannock auctions.

Planning to buy a 1990s/2000s Rover next year to fiddle with and hopefully a road trip with my Rover MG licking buddy.

Do also love an old lorry and have driven some spectacularly shoddy ones in the past.

 

Anyway over and out for now.

Dave

Hello! I’ve been lurking around this forum for years, but never got down to writing. I really like the friendly atmosphere and the openness to cars of all different models, as being a bit of an omnivore in cars, but a tendency towards Fords and Mercs. I’ve had at least two dozens of Granadas through the years, a lot of Mondeos, a couple of VW buses, a Volvo 745, a lot of w124 Mercedes, a few w210. Current lineup is my trusty old Granada LS coupe (3-litre) which I’ve had for nearly 20 years, an ‘87 Sierra and a 2007 Mercedes E-class. 
 

Regards, 

axelvic, Sweden

Hi Guys, long time lurker so about time I joined up.  Nice to see like minded people with love for tat, shite and other automotive jiggery pokery. I trimmed down the fleet after a messy split but now seem to be collecting more...

Currently residing in glorious Stoke on trent but soon to be returning to good old Hampshire 

I imagine describing Stoke on Trent in glowing terms to the people of Hamshire might be hard work?

Born and bred in Cannock moved to Tamworth 11 years ago.

Carefully does it.  Was it a large cultural shift ? 

(Joking)
