remember that bangeromics idea the guy said just buy a cheapy run it into the ground then buy another , that no longer applies.
cost of living crisis has pushed up the demand for a cheap car to the point that they are not cheap anymore
still going apparently
I reckon turning up for a job interview 18 yrs (and 20 days) ago in my Caterham was what got me the job - my interviewer came out and sat in it, making "brmm brmmm" noises . . .
I got the job.
Amongst the besuited, CV carrying hordes, the idiot with the daft car was more memorable.
I'd only used it as it was the only car of the few I owned that was MOTed and taxable after a good while working in the US.
I love that, and would have given you the job based on those criteria too.
Much rather wolf in my sheep pen to keep it interesting
My Wife is looking at 2012 ish fiestas, good ones are approaching 5k.
100% agreed Kevin, when we went out to buy Sally a newer car after she hit that supersized Badger a couple of years ago, or whenever it was, she wanted a 17/18 car…..
Including the extra £2k that I gave her, she had to settle for a 15 plate with evidence of a garden wall scrape repair for the deceased owner via a small back street concern as she wanted an almost unobtainable 12.5
Hmmmmmmmm…. You are so right.
Spoke to a couple of consultant friends who are car guys today, and they agreed.
