Terrible car seeks new home. SOLD.

Recommended Posts

I wish I was making this up:

 

'Is it still available'

 

'I can pick up in the morning'

 

Yes, still available

 

'Is there anything wrong with it?'

 

(Ignored that)

 

'??'

 

?

 

'Anything wrong with car or all ok'

 

Did you read the advert?

 

'Fuck off'

 

Jog on you prick.

 

 

 

 

I bet he's popular with the ladies with such a pleasant and cheery manner.

Would this roffle for £3.50 per ticket or 3 for £10? If it helps* I found a can of Ford silver spray in the ST170 earlier and attempted to go over the primer covered bits of the Micra. The result was as good as you'd expect.

This is just like when I sold the Mrs's qashqai.

 

I felt like throwing my phone in the sea, and had decided all human beings are basically massive cunts.

 

Thankfully someone actually came to the house, looked at it, made a reasonable offer and drove it home.

 

A few that stick out:

 

"I've to come from (far away) so you need to recognise that and knock £300 off to cover my flight and ferry"

 

Erm no

 

"what's your best price"

Come have a look and make me an offer

"OK will you take (half asking price)"

Like I said come have a look and then we can talk

"(slightly more) is the best I can do"

Ignore

 

"hi is it petrol?"

Yes says so in the advert

"oh I was looking a diesel"

Fucktard

my old man paid 500 quid for a Y plater 1.0 micra 6 years ago, it was shit then, but its actually outlasted him.

 

The paint is falling off it, it got advisories for "advanced corrosion on underside" on the last two MOTs. He died at the start of the year so its now sat in my drive. During the beast from the east it laughed in the face of the snow.

 

I doubt its got any hope of another MOT and its now lapsed so really I should weigh it in, but its just so doggedly reliable I feel guilty. One of those cars you wish you could send to Khazakstan or somewhere cos theyd get another decade out of it no bother.

 

For as much as theyre dull, these micras are as reliable as hell.

I’d definitely be interested in a roffle.

I can’t work out why silver paint falls off Micras and Almeras but it does - I had a 2002 N16 Almera and the paint was flaking off in huge sheets down to bare metal. No rust.

 

Seen a few like it since.

I would break my roffle ban for this bad boy.

I’ll put it down to the sun and cider but wifey was weirdly ok this afternoon when I floated the risk of a roffle landing a Pug 605 on the drive...’win what you want as long as it isn’t shit’

 

Beauty, eye, beholder, etc.

 

3 randoms for £10 please!

I'll add numbers this evening when I'm home. Meanwhile if anyone knows what number/s they want, could they please copy/paste and put their names against required digits? I'm quite happy to do so later, but have a bit on at the moment, sorry.

Loads of these have dented rear quarter panels..

 

One of my friends had one in red , skidded off the road in the snow, some lads pushed it back and dented the quarter panel.. It stayed like it ..

    Now,  I saw it in Tesco's one evening , and  knew it was hers ,as the rear quarter was pushed in... so I parked next to it really close so she wouldn't be able to get in the drivers door  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen: , but she'd know it was me ,as she knows my T4 van ...Would be funny to see her reaction eh ?  I nipped in Tesco's ,bought some fags , came out  to watch ,  and .....fucking hell  :shock:  it's some old boys car ! Not hers at all !!!  Squirm time .. :oops:  :oops:

      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
    • By Broadsword
      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!
    • By KruJoe
      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?
    • By dollywobbler
      I have acquired a vehicle. This is when I was trying to fix it so I could drive home.

       
      The car was offered FOC to the Rover 800 Owners' Club. They weren't really in a position to take it on directly, so it ended up being pointed my way. It's an 820 base model - SU carburettor-fed 2-litre O-Series! BAe was the first owner, for eight weeks, then it was sold to the father of the chap I bought it off, who sadly passed away last year.
       
      It has covered 105k, has a fair bit of rust in a few places, but is pretty tidy and looks bloody fantastic. It has a few weeks of MOT, delicious dealer plates, unexpected lumbar adjustment and electric front windows. One piece of wood on the dash, none on the doors, manual tilt/slide sunroof, spoiler!
       
      It had barely moved since July last year, but sadly, I got a whiff of hot brakes on the M55. I pulled onto the hard shoulder and the nearside rear wheel was smoking. I limped at 30mph down the hard shoulder to the next junction, which was not fun. I then limped gently back to the vendor, where I stripped the brake, used entirely the wrong grease (as it was all he had) to try and improve things, considered this a success and drove 180 miles home.
       
      I seem to have mostly taken photos of the rear.

       
      There is a petrol station shot, but you'll have to wait. I developed a horrible migraine on the way back and had to stop for a while. Most unlike me. 
       
      Eventually made it back.

       
      It's all a bit complicated, but the idea is I have it for a bit and at some point, it'll end up back with the club. I think the plan is to sell it to raise some funds for charity longer term, but sadly, it could also do with a set of calipers and tyres, so finances need to be reconsidered I think. The brakes are SHITE. It could be air from boiling brake fluid, so I'll see if a bleed helps, but I reckon all the calipers are buggered.
