Think that's over-egging the pudding a touch. It is definitely a shiter's car at a shiter's price, though.

Right.  

No "I would if I could" or "My wife would kill me" or "4 cars is already too many".

Just look it.

Offered for sale is my late mother’s Skoda Octavia in the rare colour of Atacama Beige. Elegance spec which included climate control, sun roof, arm rest, one touch window, sunroof, alloys etc. 
 
I have known this car most of its life, and was my mother’s pride and joy. She loved any gold cars and this was no exception. Purchased new from Central Garage Towcester the first owner kept it until it’s 5th birthday when it was traded in for a new Octavia. It has been in the family since 2006, with my mother in the final few years. 
 
The car is a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing - with the very lively 1.8T 20v engine coupled with an auto box as fitted to mk4 golf GTis. It certainly shifts when you want it to, in an unassuming OAP beige kind of a way. 
 

Come on.  This would make a great AS bike.

That's a remarkable colour and a very odd but quite appealing spec.  I am biased somewhat, but I do think the Mk1 Octavia is one of those cars which is just about all the car you could ever need - 1.8T goes exceedingly well, diesels do 50mpg+ all day, huge boot, drives really nicely, reliable in my experience aside from a few VAG foibles (looking at you, central locking) and - in my humble opinion - quite a handsome thing.

I had quite fancied a VRS but they stated to get asked for silly money now.  3 year cambelt/water pump interval a bit of a pain but nice retro looking cars. Nearly bought a nice yellow one last year but couldn't be arsed going to the Isle of White to fetch it, but given anything equivalent is being offered at double the price now I wish I had

Barns are owned by farmers. A breed of people not well known for abandoning perfectly servicing vehicles. 
If it has been found in a barn it was fucked when it went in. 

Farmers! once knackered it gets thrown in the barn , you come along and make a reasonable offer , automatically they think you are trying to rip them off and it’s worth at least double , much huffing and puffing ensues , no sale and the article stays there until it corrodes beyond repair.

An original UK Honda Jazz with a years MOT and the MOT history only goes back to late 2020(As "Stored in a garage for may years till I got it in 2017".) and had a rather large fail list and then finally passed in April this year.

I do like it. But I'm not brave enough to risk it.
