looks like i'll be giving mine up unfortunatly...but not befor sripping it of all the bits i want to keep!!! (i.e carpet, steering wheel, back seats, spare wheel...etc.) does that make me a bad person? haha.

also...found a lovely little black mog that im going and colecting next weekend. its not very far away so i dont have to go far to get it. its 4dr not 2dr, but im sure i can cope with that, im sure my friends will prefer it to clambering over the other seats all the time :)

again, thanks to everyone for being so very nice whalst i was upset about my car, but it really doesnt feel the same as it did, and i think a change is for the best!!

cheers, amy xXx








also...will i have any trouble fitting a carpet for a 2dr into a 4dr moggie? cause that was my plan?

Do - get a secret fuel pump switch on it right away!
Note that taking anything from your old car (bar personal effects) will be seen as theft.

Did you have to send in photos of your old car to the insurance company when you took out insurance? If so they may notice the difference. Just be v. careful.

The 'reserve not met' bit is the danger, he may be hoping for lots more than it's sat at now......so talking to him first would be favourite before thinking about going to see it - you only really want to do that if there is a realistic chance of driving it home with you!

Looks nice but probably only worth about £1000 - £1200 in todays climate. Do a deal on the phone first then go see with cash in hand.... :-)

Wouldnt be too sure about that I have noticed that many Moggies have been making better money down south this year than for some time especially Travellers.

I agree regarding Travellers - some are making excellent money (for the seller) :-)

he had people looking at it today and tomorrow and that he'd let me know.

Call me cautious, but it says its a 1963 but has the wrong dashboard and all the later features that were not introduced until 1964. I personally don't think that the ID on this car can be trusted, especially as the pedal box is now where the chassis number would have been stamped! :roll:

It is what it is - looks ok for the money. As long as there is a wee pile of old MOTs/Tax Discs etc it should be fine.

Surely near enough for you Amy - must be worth a punt.

Ghastly dash and horrible seats - but you could sort that out if the rest is ok!

i had looked at the one...but im now unsure if im even going to get another minor!

as much as i want one and would love to have something i could look after...my mum pointed out that i am only a student, i know nothing about cars and at the moment im un-employed...whitch all points towards getting something rubbish like a clio or corsa or something, and also mum could do with downgrading her car as she drives an estate and doesnt need to so we could share a car, thus furthering the reduction of our carbon footprint.

i'll save the better part of the money and work for the next couple of years until i can afford to get a pretty little moggie and be able to give it all the love and attention it deserves!

i shall still remain an active member on here though and keep my eyes open for anything thats down my way.
