Been loking at cars for sale around the 1500 - 2k mark.
Quite surprised what you can get.
Seen a 2004 mondeo, 2002 x type jags, 2002 s type jags etc etc
What would you get is the general question? Question
Whats the best you can find? Question

Nearly bought a '92 Merc 320 pillar less coupe a couple of months ago. £1750, 1 owner, blue leather, completely mint. It was stunning! Loads of tidy Jags about for under £2k. Cabriolet Saab 93's are also going cheap. Test drove one for £1900, 02 plate super condition a couple of weeks back.

Always wanted an X1/9 after having a really cool Corgi one when I was a kid. Looked at a few over the years but in too poor a state to take on. Would be nice to add one to my collection Smile but my drive is full now Rolling Eyes

Why does everyone just assume that garages are meant to house cars?

My misses is threatening to move in and is expecting to use the garage for her Punto "because it's new" ! Using this as a bargaining tool to buy a house close by that has 2 driveways and a double garage. Sounds posh but its on the corner so has some good space. Could probably fit 9 old bangers in there plus her new one Smile
