Would a £500 Calibra be a really bad idea? That blue one is definitely giving me the wink 

No.  It would be like having a 4 seat 2 door cavalier mk3, but with IRS (like the Turdo, GSi and 8V 4x4 versions and not wonky steel beam rear suspension like all other mk3 cavs including the V6) 

 

Proper 4 seat with bigish boot and room for rear passengers legs

Unfortunately has no rear headroom if you are anything over 5'10"

Not at all judging by the previous comments on here. It seems reasonably priced and it is a Cavalier underneath, so should be simple enough.

Bramz, this Hyundai looks utterly dreadful, but fulfills the brief perfectly. As a bonus, it comes with three spoke wheels, very patterned seats and the worst wood* trim I have ever seen fitted to a car (which is quite an achievement).

I'm sure fwd Calibres have the same old bendy rear axle as fwd Cavaliers

No.

They have the same IRS as the fwd GSI cavalier.

I'd be lying if I said that wasn't in my watch list already. Looks like a likely candidate....

Rover 600? 

Perhaps not something I'd call odd, but they're very good 90s waft-o-barges and they tend to be dirt cheap. 

This, and I know a man with one for sale after FOTU.... 250 would prise it away, Shiter rates.

I do like a Potato. 

The best definition of the world “culture” I ever heard is “how you behave when you think nobody is watching you”.

With the Potato- it’s like Toyota were trying really really really hard at the time to make contemporary cars that were a bit more stylish, we all turned our backs for a second and they reverted to type - succumbed to the addiction - and made the Paseo.

want.

Also my budget is equal to and less than £500, not £1k plus like some of the links posted above.

No Toyota Picnics, the only MPV is an early 90s Espace. 

 

Bet you lot can't wait to see the inevitable French shed I end up with.

1st registered 26th March 1993, which was 4 days after these 1st went on sale. Possibly the oldest left

Sorry for Hijack, but woah that's early. Must be Jan/Feb build date, can't tell any more because ETIS has gone all GDPR.

Possibly not the oldest left, but in the top 20.

Shame it's a bit broken, but no rust in the MOT history at all - which is not untypical on low mileage early ones.
