Some idiot who works at the garage next door to my work has one just like this. It's slammed 2 da weeds on pink banded steelz and the wheels even have stupid camber on them. The bonnet is matt black and the rear side windows are stickerbombed. It looks absolutely ridiculous. He drives it like a knob too, tailgating and trying (and usually failing) to hang the back end out on every corner.

I don't know his name, but he fits your 'owner demographic' perfectly  :lol:



All I can say is...

I see a lot of these with the number plate nestled on the dashboard, with the old excuse of ‘oh officer it fell off earlier...’


Just seen one earlier outside work, some absolute cock was mouthing off to the police when they pulled him up about it. I think a quick smack of the headlamp lenses might have changed his tone followed by a fine for driving an unroadworthy vehicle.


How do some of these fine automobiles pass the test anyway when they’ve had the camber fucked about with or had the pump timing messed with to cause all that dense black smoke?

What a fucking nail. Sometimes I wish I’d been an MOT tester and had the opportunity to write the death certificate on something like that.



Or a traffic copper. Pull 'em over, get them on the back of a recovery truck to a compound. I'd have the surrounding areas clear of that sort of rubbish in weeks.

And, of course, my buyer has sent me a message.


An hour before he's supposed to turn up.


"Hi, I'm not coming up today as I've found a car closer to home. Good luck with the sale".


He did give a thumbs up emoji though so that's alright then.

This is what happens when sentimentality rules over the wallet. Strip it and get some coin for the good bits. Whoever buys it probably won’t be cherishing it, it will either be shuttling between the tip or it will get ‘improved’ by some idiot. I’d just put the poor fucker out of its misery and break it if you could see £600 out of it. You are trying to do an idiot a favour, Alex or whatever they call him won’t be thanking you for saving it.

      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.
      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?
