  1. Top budget really is about £1500. So I could definitely buy something straighter. I just thought if I could haggle the seller right down, I might be able to score a bargain. But taking the work into account, I think I'd have to knock them down quite a bit to make it worthwhile...
  2. Yeah, that was kind of my feeling. Thanks for all your help, guys. Think I might start looking elsewhere!
  3. Okay so we've established this was probably owned by a blonde driver called katie hill, and she wasn't so good at driving! You reckon even if I offered £800 that would be over odds?
  4. yeah, and because they were such a horrendous driver there's a part of me that wonders whether it will have been looked after mechanically, regardless of what they say. I also like the 'same spec without dents and scratches go for £3000. The guys at parkers beg to differ.
  5. yeah, I do wonder if it has been used for stock car racing! I did think about selling it on- what I obviously don't want to do is spend loads to get it fixed and not make it back when selling...
  6. Hey guys, I was just wondering what you reckoned to this: Fiesta on Ebay Basically, I know it's in pretty bad shape, but as a project where I could progressively put things right, it looks kind of promising. They reckon it's mechanically sound, which is a good point to start off, but I'm wondering about the price. Thinking of dropping a bid on, but don't really know what the car is worth in this state. The bodywork says to me perhaps the car hasn't been treated that well (not sure someone would manage to put a dent in every single panel on a car they loved and took care of! The plastic door trims would be an easy fix, but, even though my friend is a panel beater, so I'd get mates rates, I think it'll still cost a fair bit to get back into shape. So firstly, would you touch this, and secondly, for how much? Cheers!
