Can’t believe this hasn’t sold yet. 

I have had a AS member ask about it via PM last night funny enough and I'm just now awaiting a reply,  though I guess maybe some are waiting till the end of the month for payday? 

Thank's for everyone interest so far regarding starting a Roffle, not sure how to go about dividing £425 into 59 tickets as my math's makes £7 a ticket only £413  total or £8 is £472?

Do it at £8 a ticket.  Nobody here is going to resent you making an extra few quid because A) The winner gets an entire car for the price of a McDonalds 2) It's your car to sell for what you like and D) In 5 years time when threads like this reappear, we'll all laugh at someone getting an entire Cavalier so cheap.

£8.  I'll write up the list if you like.

Thank's my phone not so hot on the new AS, So if you didn't mind writing up the list to get things started for us that would be greatly appreciated.  

Knowing my luck if I sell the Cavalier values will shoot up over night. I've spent far more on this Car than I'll ever get back over the years but with 11 years happy motoring who can put a price on that?  

If everybody happy with £8 a ticket. The added bonus for me is it will also help cover the extra bill for the New Manifold Studs that are being fitted! 

The Cav will still be available For Sale till the Roffle is sold out for £425 as well. Insurance expires Monday. Tax is till Sept. So I'll leave the Tax on and I won't renew my Insurance for a week or so to save me getting mugged on cancellation fee's etc. 

I know I've been promising more pictures but work is clashing with getting the Cav collected before Sat at the minute.  So bare with me. Anything anybody wants to know about the Cav or if you would like to take a look,  just fire me a PM.

Got the Cav back tonight so managed to grab some quick pics. I'll draw up a Roffle list tomorrow for the people who asked for a ticket so far on a borrowed laptop. Unless Borniteldentity hasn't for me by then as kindly offered earlier

The Cavalier as you can see is in fair condition for it's almost 26 years.  Body has had arches and sills in the past and in my ownership some paintwork too. Interior is from a late model SRI but is tired / sun worn. Carpets are fine and I replaced the rear parcel shelf and stays last year.  Dashtop cracked but have a used top section to go with it.  Annoyingly the corner of the headlining has started to peel again I've noticed today. But will do my best to sort it this weekend. 

As mentioned there will be some free spares included and the new owner can also have first dibs on buying a spare 74k engine. Plus I have some other parts available for sale.

I have been selfishly hoping this beauty would go to roffle. I'll take one random now and I may be back for more once I've checked my pockets, searched down the back of the sofa, and tipped the neighbourhood kids upside down and shaken them.

Hope that ^^ is okay. And accurate.

I haven't put Bramz on the list as he said 'AT LEAST two numbers'. 

No that's really appreciated!

If anybody needs me to alter the Roffle list just let me know. 

Sure Bramz will have brought 3 more cars by now and sold 3 more since his post anyway.

As i have some mk3 cavalier wheels and a bonnet on top of my garage,  i feel number 52 is mine. 

 

20190526_065954.jpg

 Funny enough I also have a bonnet in the garage here for the Cavalier that can be included and a steel rim somewhere too.

The other spares are stashed in the loft and under my bed.

Thank's for the pic it's cheered up a otherwise wet and dull morning, number 52 is yours.

The wheels have been there since about 2005 and the bonnet since 2011. 

 

I've also just remembered there a Cav rear bumper in my Dad's back garden that's been there almost 3 years. Whoops.

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good. 
      MOT April 2020

      This has been dragging with the end tantalisingly in sight, so inspired by the worthy @SRi05 I'll pop it in here and see if anyone who doesn't visit 'Shite For Sale' is interested...
       
      Quoting now...
       
      After having recently gone through the fun* of selling a car on eBay, I thought I'd try my luck on here. I only bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim, thinking it would be ideal for shooting down to France with the wife and the dog to visit the in-laws, but the wife has taken against it HARD due to the lack of air-con (she's not worried about us - it's the dog!). So it has to go.
      Bad bits first, as is AS tradition. The A/C really is gone. No amount of re-gassing will fix this! A few patches of rust here and there - none look bad enough for welding. A bit of rust converter and bondo and job jobbed was my plan. Laquer is starting to peel in a few places. The remote central locking doesn't always unlock the passenger side door (although it does always seem to lock it, which is odd). Tailgate has a decent dent in it. Nothing to do with me, it came free with the car. Tailgate still works fine, though.
      Good bits. Maybe it has been too long since I was last in a rear-wheel drive, but it feels to me like it pulls away from the line very nicely. The six-speed box feels nice and precise, and lets you trundle along at 70mph with the engine only doing about two and a half thousand revs (not had it long enough to really measure fuel efficiency). MOT until Feb and taxed to get you home.
      Located in Ipswich. I was thinking £9 per ticket, or two for £16, three for £21. Any takers?
       
      PRICE DROP !!!!
      £8 for one, £14 for two, £19 for three. Buy Buy Buy!!!!

      I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical.
      Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November.  Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age.

      More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run.
      Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference.
      Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.

      Right due to a mixture of life being a pita and the lack of money and space. I really need to get a car shifted before September ideally.
      So although this wasn't in the original plan, what better than me offering two Cars For Sale / Roffles instead ! 
      Plus Points,
       2006 Met Black Fiat Stilo 1.6 petrol Active SW. 4 Owners , 48,912 only with Mot till next April, Starts, Run's + Drives fine and engine seam's to have plenty of get up and go. Clutch is ok too. Brakes seam good inc handbrake. Blowers work ok. Front Leccy Windows + Mirrors. PAS inc City Button, Central Locking, CD player.  Looks to have had a full new Exhaust and Windscreen replacement recently. Tyres all have plenty of tread and spare wheel and tool kit is present. No fault codes on Dash. V5 arrived today in my name. 
      Negative Points,
      Interior isn't great. Worst is being the headlining and rear boot carpet, but is 99% complete. Bodywork has some interesting dents see pics! Also has poor previous repairs to nearside doors and is declared on logbook as being a previous salvaged vehicle.  Nearside front door doesn't lock on the outside but locks fine inside. Tailgate rattles slightly [ needs adjustment ] No service history so Cambelt Roulette at present, but Fiat reckon next change assuming it's had one would be 72K. Clonking / Rattle underneath suspect anti-roll bar joint as advised on last Mot. 
      Despite it's appearances though this car has potential. I feel that with a bit of time invested and a few trips to a scrappy as I'd planned to do, would improve it no end. But otherwise it would make a ideal cheap workhorse / dog carrier etc as is, that would also last you till next April and beyond without too much bother. 
      Car is untaxed but will Sorn if not Sold shortly and no Insurance. 
      Just want back what it owe's me so far. AS price is £350 firm or £6 a Roffle Ticket. 
      If the Cavalier sell's before the Stilo, then I may keep this car as originally intended but we see how things go.  Worst case I'll sell both and have to go Car shopping again! 
      Car located Midlands near Jct 10 M42 at present.

      Something amazing has come up, so this being the sensible economical family car I'm moving it on.  If it doesn't go quick I'll more the 205 on instead once it's tested, which would make much more sense as I like it a lot.
      Good:

      Running perfectly. 
      Pretty economical; guessing very high thirties or low 40s.
      Quiet
      Smooth
      Peugeot ride quality
      Big boot.
      Soft comfortable seats
      Bad:
      Needs a new side repeater lens (£15 on eBay)
      Could do with new tyres on the front as they're worn Chinese ditchfinders
      Bottoms of the doors are scruffy.
      Passenger window needs help to go back up.
      Located in Durham, delivery available at cost.
