Thought I would offer it here, because I don't want to deal with the outside world.

MGF 1800cc roadster. Great fun little car to drive, I already have a Rover Tomcat for weekends though.
I bought it when I had a long commute, but now I cycle to work it just sits there doing nothing.

It has a fair history file, doesn't use any oil or water.
It is tatty, but its a great car to have fun with and not worry about leaving places.
Roof and rear window in reasonable condition.

Open to offers, even a bike swap etc considered.

You dont drive a Rover 'Tomcat' - they dont exist nor have they ever existed. You drive a Honda based Rover 200 Coupe.

One of the silliest internet myths in automotive history! :wink:

If I had the space I'd say yes but unless you want to swap it for some Spds... :mrgreen:

Very tempting at the price - am in the market for a fun, cheap car... If you were nearer I'd definitely come have a look.

I might get an insurance quote and have a think about it...

Is it very rusty? :D

I'm fairly easy to get to from London, I'm 5 mins from A14, and under 15 mins from A1.

The front wings have some rust, but its not sharp etc so will be ok for a while (wings are bolt on so easy to replace)

Its cheap and to be fair, a lot more fun than I thought it would be.

Yep, probably worth the trip, just not sure I'm likely to be able to make it anytime soon... I've sent you a PM anyway...

Just thought I'd say that I've now found something else more local. So I'm out... but have a bump on me.

This is a bargain and someone ought to get it bought!
