I said why don’t you want more than that and he told me all he had only been offered was £100 off marketplace for it. So I guess it doesn’t matter how cheap a car is on marketplace someone will still come along and kick you in the balls. Funnily enough those figures were the same as when my brother scrapped his '97 Micra, it had no cills in the end as he noticed it was a bit crusty after I put my finger through it, of course it was way too much to have 2 cills welded in so he got another car and was shortly taking it on it's last drive when a couple of days before hand a lad of 20 maybe he said offered him £100 cash to drive it away as he's blown up the engine in his and my brothers car only had around 50000 miles so he was going to swap the engine over, "hmmm" went my brother, "£120" the lad then said, "nah" said my brother, "I'll scrap it", "well", the other guy said, "I don't know scrap prices but I reckon my offer is better...." 2 days later we went to the scrappy and they looked at it and said "£250 be allright?" Don't know scrap values, my arse, if he said £2-250 he might have sold it but actually it's being on here that I've seen scrap prices aren't bad at the minute so thanks to you all on here that my brother said no 👍 Vince70 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
