    If you can wait a few months, you're money will go a lot further.

    FTSE has lost 200 point before dinner!

    VW beetles are horrid.

    Now...landrover discovery...defenders....some range rovers are all very good

    You can sometimes pick up some of these things quite cheaply from army surpless places and if not at least you know it's been well looked after.

    You not recommending your MX-3 then?
    As lovely as my little Mx-3 is, rhyds is on about getting "another car", if you ever get "another car" to run along side your everyday car you would want something a little different surely. Granted you don't see that many mx-3s around but you see even fewer mustangs

    you can get mustangs in manual and automatic, getting one that isn't left hand drive is the real challenge

    Saw an old Y-plate LR Series Pickup today (not sure of the exact series, but was deffo a leaf sprung model) for about £1200, had a Montego perkins prima conversion. A real drive-through-stuff-rather-than-around car.

    VW camper: Really not my scene, I am young (21), but I'd rather buy a car for it's engineering and what it is rather than for how cool it is.

    My main interest has always been in BMC/BL/Austin Rover metal, but these other suggestions are coming in handy. Budget would be about £1500, depending on car, I can't weld but mechanicals aren't an issue.

    And hi as well Mark

    If it's engineering you want, buy the camper and do the Porche engine swap! :twisted: You might want to look at the brakes too...

    I've never understood why anyone would buy BL cars (Landrover excluded). They have ALL, as far as I can see, been unadulterated s***.

    "Driving at its best"? My point exactly! I learned partly in a Metro, and took my test in a Maestro... Sheds all of them.

    Well my first car was an '88 Ford Fiesta 1.4 S, that thing rusted a hell of a lot more than any of my Metros...
