there is no alternative...i dont hAVE A LOT TO SPEND what shall i get?
how much do you mean?
What are your priorities..do you need to get kids in the back? want to go fast? want it to be cheap?
Focuses are probably the best 'family' type car..not sure what price they start at.
not very helpful.
It was cheap, economical and incredibly reliable. I wouldn't think twice about getting another one.
It was beyond shot. The suspension never worked, the engie was shot to shit and pumped foul oil all over everything and the exhaust was so full of holes the thing sounded liek a Soviet tractor being fucked by a pig. BUT it did have a white stripe down the side and WHITE HUBCAPS! This made it the best car I ever owned.
Sigh. Must try to type more slowly.
The Ford Escort it is.
Creaky, have a word with Durutti and see if you can get the one he used to have.
Im sold that piece of shit for £50 (count the notes) just three years after forking over £1500 for it. I know a good deal when I see one. Oh, Yes.
that's MY other car.
And don't forget to dive over it when you're going to jump in, say "Guv" a lot when you talk to your superiors and "SHUT IT!" when you're talking to anyone else in your car.
so I could own a proper old skool dirty Land Rover.
I say "mine", i'm getting it when i pass my test, if i ever do..
It's a done up little corsa. Lowered to the extent speedbumps nearly rip it to bits.
is that what you were looking for?
I have a (i think it's a Fiat) UNO red banger for sale. Add some spoilers and your street cred would be priceless.
Basically I was given the godam car, but I've not driven a car since i went into the front of a lorry doing an uphill start in Wales. Bloody uphill countries. Argh
1.6 litres. It got stolen. I'm still sure it was actually carved out of a huge block of solid metal.
