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.
Defenders are good yeh, not changed in 50 years must be doing something right!
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 mustangsOriginally Posted by Skoggmeiger
That's not Automatic.
you can get mustangs in manual and automatic, getting one that isn't left hand drive is the real challenge
Damn kids and their disposable income!!
(welcome to EG BTW Rhyd (I've never said it) - nice to see you on here.. keeping up the tradition! )
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.Originally Posted by TechMonkey
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
My buddie got an MR2 for that Rhyd! Scares the pants off me
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...Originally Posted by rhyds
I've never understood why anyone would buy BL cars (Landrover excluded). They have ALL, as far as I can see, been unadulterated s***.
While we're slagging off british motoring, check out these bad boys :P :P
"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...Originally Posted by Andrew_C
MK1 Golf can't go wrong with them.
