Pre-facelift Mk3 Cav bASe in the parts section.

That's identical to my former step dad's old one. That was the second car I ever drove, and the first time I experienced 100mph (not me driving). It holds some fond memories and I'd love to take that on but am seriously lacking the skills to put it back on the road. Hope it finds a good home.

I'm not sure how much work it would need to get through a test.  If it's as solid as it looks from the photos it might be fairly straightforward.  The thing that lets it down most is the fact that it has been painted with a broom, but that's not an obstacle to getting it usable.

Hey, is it just me or does £2500 ONO seem like INSANE VALU for a Mk3 Spitfire. Scruffy and two shades of red, but fully restored a while back with a rebuilt engine and various sensible sounding upgrades, and is 'mechanically superb'

For comparison, this one is on an auction and is already more expensive

I don't have any money but I'm trying to stop myself going to buy that tomorrow. Good job it's really far away. Talk me out of/ into it?

This lovely gold Astra also looks like a pretty good buy for just £995

Until you see the gearbox

Oh well, can't have everything. How bad could it really be?

I think you are homophobic against cars that identify as self-shifting.

I campaign for equal rights for two-pedal cars

My Grampa had a blue one like that, before getting my Great-Grandfather's red one.

That 1.6 engine/Hydramatic 3 speed is a really nice combination.  Good drive are those Astras.

I have the same transmission in my Kadett 1.3. It's fine, doesn't feel sluggish and isn't much thirstier than the (manual) 1.2. I'd only steer clear if the intend is to do a lot of motorway driving.

Lovely place Whitstable on the Thames coast.  Bring a battery by the looks of it.

yes its very pleasant. We often take the mutt out for walks in Whitstable.  Would be tempted with the XM too if I didn't have one of my own taking up valuable space on the drive since last April

It's very cheap for something drive away...but these XM don't seem to have got significantly valuable mostly. The turbo-diesels go very well.

Yes Whitstable is very nice but then so is the whole Kent coast in most parts.

yes, a low mileage MOTd one with the cooler interior it seems very keenly priced.  Hard suspension is probably just spheres need doing (easy job) . Does look like it has an ABS light on in one of the pictures though

Honestly wouldn't mind this, if I could afford it, the insurance, or the expenses that are required to get the damned thing home haha.

Only 45k and only £1,690, seems a bit off to me, to be honest. One of the arches at the back looks a wee bit... crunchy, but definitely repairable I reckon.

Slightly frilly Cat N Allego 3. Still would.

Allegro 3 on a Y plate. One of the very last ones remaining? 

It looks to be a really genuine one. Shame about the wannabe whiteroomer who penned the ad. I reckon the teenage lad's mum has tried everything to get him off the X Box, which hasn't worked. She's then promised him money for some new games if he sells gran's old car.
