IT DESERVES TO BE RENOVATED, AS IT IS QUITE A RARE CAR THESE DAYS

IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO SEE THIS CAR GO AROUND A TRACK

But I'm going to advertise it as  "FOR BANGER RACING" anyway.

Liking this a lot: an early petrol Xantia in plush SX trim, with bonus photobombs from a later V6 and an early XM.

Low miles, fresh MOT, refurbed suspension... I reckon you’d get a nice cup of tea and a good natter on collection as well. 

£500 start. Would.

Cat C in 2009. However as it was probably worth approximately the same as a multipack of Wotsits then, I guess the structural damage that resulted in it being a write off could've been a cracked windscreen. Added to watch list for when I'm drunk.

I am being drawn to this one:

Under 50k on it. Advert is for a 'Cireon' Xantia though.

If I was going to by one I'd prefer a pre facelift one but it looks nice.

Did you not have one of these that became sentient and trapped you inside the car at the Co-op?

Very cheap proper Panda with impressive mileage (ignore what it says in the ad, it's done 168k plus whatever since the last MOT).  In the next village to me so if anyone wants it I can collect and store for a short while (say until the end of the year).

Yeah, it wasn't an issue for me but the 8 months preggers Mrs Imp took offence and it had to go. 

To be fair, that car was absolutely shit. It had a dodgy MOT and absolutely stank of manure.

Obligatory 'Been to the seaside in home converted camper van' picture.

''provides a unique feeling of comfort and homeliness'

And let's be honest, nothing says 'comfort and homeliness' quite like 0.3 of a metre of garden netting nailed to some OSB board.

42.5k is about the life expectancy of the CVT gearbox apparently.  I viewed an A200 turbo with that gearbox and it was a hoot on the rest drive. But then I did some research and ran away
