Really undecided. Half of me says get something manageable, I'm closing up the painting business due to Ireland being a damp sponge permenantly, so I could get something 1 litrery that sips fuel. Other half of me says get something interesting to drive and tax it for a year and just enjoy it. Had looked into Preludes, always had a soft spot for those, and there's a nice one Cork, the final model shape, seems in decent nick and has a test until December.

Was also thinking T Bar MR2, but I gig at weekends, so I can't get gear into one of those.

I'm actually going to go tyre kicking this weekend. Only requirement I have is that the dash must be double-din for my satnav head unit. Will be weird to go around looking at cars rather than fixing them.



V8 - check
Tax - check
NCT - check

EDIT:

I like that other half of yours

C'mon buy a car for 1k and tax it for up to that again and then don't worry, just enjoy

Actually now that I think of it, 4 requirements! Doh. Double Din for the stereo, aircon, sunroof and heated seats. Gotten way too used to heated seats in the last 3 cars. I'm amazed I don't have piles.

Sorry to hear that, your work looked incredibly tasty in the pics you and others posted.

About the cars, air con and a sunroof can be a rarity, was never a huge sunroof dude tbh.

I used to like sunroofs, but with modern aircon, they're a bit obsolete, no?

And as for heated seats - really? In our very mild climate?

On the fiat, if you used the windscreen washer with the roof open you'd get soaked
