The Price is SHITE!

That Caddy is absolutely hanging. 

However it's got the Badge of Win on the front according to all the tosspots that live round here, so I'm going to say £1050.99

It'll get bought by a teenager who will fail to restore it then it'll be bridged for £300.

It'll get bought by a teenager for £520 and 13 pence. It will quickly annoy the teenager's wranglers who will lose patience and weigh it in for whatever the passing pie people offer on the doorstep.

no-one actually bids on the POS.

@TheOtherStu on the nose!  You have the conn.

Goddness knows what horrors our young TikToker will find when they try and tow that heap of shit out of the yard, it'll probably split in half.

Personally I hope they A-Frame it using a Renault Clio, a la the camper van video.

Why thank you.

OK, as I got it completely wrong last time, I'll have a quick fire round.
You'll love this "Barn Find" Trabant. When I say Barn Find, I mean, its been left to rot in a field. The barn moved away long ago.

Currently with 17 bids and sitting at £200, this finishes tomorrow (Monday) evening.

I absolutely love the seller's honesty.

"Was driven from East Germany to its present home just after the fall of the wall in 1989. It's been lovingly kept in a field since and used to store plastic plant pots. "

There might be a bidding war in between Trab lickers as it's a P50 rather than the positively common 601. Seemingly the bits underneath are mostly the same but the body is quite different, but presumably made of the same weird plastic stuff. £1473.23 and some pocket fluff, but to the vendor's disgust the bidder will vanish and it will have to be relisted.

The Ambassador spoils us @TheOtherStu!  Considering the plastic will exist until the end of time, but I suspect its undercrackers have long since rotted away.  I'm going to pitch it at £976.67.

I will update on Boom_daughter's opinion and value later.  I'll have to explain what it is I suspect

Well, as there were only 2 offers and you had the lowest, you win the most amazing prize. Sadly, I drank it, so you win nothing.

It went for £310.

I hand the baton on......

Why thank you sir, if you could send me over the ring pull so that I can imagine what it tasted like now and again.

I thought I'd change my plan a bit, normally I find utter end of life crap, but let's have something that might have enough legs to get out of the car park.  Live out your Elizabeth from Keeping Up Appearances fantasies (?) with this slice of delight...

23k miles, sold by a private seller, currently on £319.00 with a reserve.  Two days and 11 hours to go.  Tiny bit flaky on the rear arches, but nothing serious.

Hopefully the winner already has a Rover 216 and a knackered Cortina.

I thought "That looks too new and shiny to be a Metro. Must be a Rover 100"

And I was right 😂

No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that -  anyone would ask 2800 quid for a metro/100 with scabby arches - I'm going to bang in a guess at £1210.42 reserve not met

£999.99 I reckon

Same. Moved from London to Devon aged 1; Mum is still there and still a grockle. She grew up in Bristol AKA the Midlands

From the description.

Both arches are slightly rusty. Arches can be purchased via eBay for £85 the pair, this hasn’t bothered us in the slightest so haven’t messed around with it. 

So why are you selling it after 8 weeks of ownership?  Admittedly, that is a very long time for certain people in that neck of the woods.

I'm going large with the displacement of an MGF engine and the Shitefest value of the HBoL hidden in the rear footwell, so £1796.
