Interestingly enough I had a similar age mk2 cav saloon i more or less gave away a few years back. Maybe i should've got an angle grinder and a tents from millets - would've been happy days 8)

Now it may be the strong cider, the over working or lack of sleep but this has been the funniest thread I've read in ages IMHO.

Please, for the love of god, don't buy the car. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm off to bed.

I was thinking the same. Can't believe a car thread lasted 6 pages until Si arrived :lol:


:lol: I've been busy fixing the damn things this week so less RB time, it's what I get paid for apparently, although a customer remarked after seeing the piles of bikes and parts kicking about the workshop that 'it's getting more like ducking Halfords in here every week!' Cheeky sod got an extra £50 on his bill for that.

Loving the Burberry look- might chav the Interceptor up in a similar stylee :lol:

apologies if i am repeating others here but im not reading through 7 pages! HONESTLY PICKLE, AT 900 quid it aint really cheap. granted you may make a couple of hundred on it but we are in a declining car market and probably will be next summer too. 900 is a lot of money to have tied up for 6 months on the off chance of making 200

1.6 cvh escorts are awful, I had an XR3i BITD and it was crap. If you want a cheap convertable, buy an MX5, if you want to make a quick couple of quid, don't buy a £900 Escort cab. I pretty much guarantee it will be rusty somewhere, the valve stem seals go at 70-80k or so, and they won't go a lot over 100k without needing a minor rebuild.
