It's the green one.

If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
 
Therefore, funtime!
 
Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
 
(GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
 
It's a risk, but I'll take it.
I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.

Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
 
Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.

The Car.
My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
New oil and filter last week.
Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation.

Hahaha...

Back wiper works, but I have to park it with a skilled release of the lever. I don't think the back squirter squirts. The wiring into the tailgate is a bit munched, so that might have something to do with it.

Then my bid stands. Please do not munch any more wiring. ;)

It's great! My old man's motor, but we all use it from time to time. We still have the rotten five-door in the field for spares. Not that it ever needs much.

Interesting fact(s), this is a phase three 19 with side impact bars and drivers airbag. 

The RHD cars did not get the revised dashboard. 

 

I really liked this car. I don't want it back (never buy back cars I've sold now) so I will follow the auction with intrigue.

£130 two shillings and sixpence

I think £5 increases would be fair, or we could keep extending the 24 hour clock by a sixpence, which could turn into the longest running roffle ever. 😉

Thank you!

Keep the bids coming chaps... I put £20 of pez in it on the way to its MOT, and it's been nowhere since!

Sure, there may be more exciting shite out there, but it's certainly more interesting than most moderns I could name.

Sleep trouble? The cosy, velourious chairs in it could hug you to sleep if you sit still for five minutes.

Cheers! We've achieved scrap value I reckon... a few more bids to cover the test fee?

Last night I dug out the rear headrests and parcel shelf from storage, they're still in perfect condition. It really is very tidy inside.

      It's a bit of an internal debate in my head as to whether to start a car specific thread on AS. My Mazda thread has become a reflection of costs of running a 25 year old car as a daily but doesn't get much traffic, my Mondeo thread has become a general MK1/2 Mondeo thread (happy about that) and my Invacar thread has become mainly about DVLA admin...but let's give it a go, see what happens.
      As documented in the news and elsewhere, here it is. Joey spud noticed straight away that it needs to be called Yummy with that number plate. But I expect the original owner was the proverbial little old lady rather than a yummy Princess-Di (had to been done) mummy.  In those days little old ladies had been Land Army girls in the war and could deal with the lack of PAS!

      It was just 7 miles up the road from me on the edge of isle of Thanet (which is where the Mazda came from too) and the current owners kindly brought it over from their marshland home in the sticks.
      Paperwork was minimal @BeEP has kindly posted me an excellent set of owner manuals, which is great, and makes a car seem more loved straight away,

      In consultation with @RobT who is a man of taste in such matters an appropriate keyring was sourced from eBay, priorities eh?

      In it's first week with me, I've had the tracking done at a cost of £40 that has sorted out the lopsided steering wheel and generally improved the driving experience.
      Soon, I'll do a list of prioritised jobs. It has an MOT until October. 
      In true AS fashion it has no role on the fleet, or no actual need. But after I failed to secure a second 323 coupé, I just had to have it! I hope it can make an appearance at a future Kent shiters meet, and maybe a very buzzy and bouncy journey to shitefest in May? We'll see.

      Not sure what the market for these are now as the seem to be priced all over the place,
      Anyone care to put a value on this pile of old shite
      I bought it with good intentions but decided to buy the hippo instead so this is now just sitting doing nothing
      it drives really well with a nice tight gear change, engine starts first time and runs really nice,
      it has chassis rust (don't they all) mainly back cross member, front driverside outrigger, and rear shock mount area,

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
       
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
       
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
       
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
       
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
       
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.
