And he said no?
Yes, as any right minded person would. Barely worth that in scrap currently.

We don't all want to buy massive liabilities.... :p

He's asking the owner if it's still available, in case you do want it though.

Stupider than a ShityRover?

I called up about a 205 convertible today that is on an eBay classified advert at ?1, expecting that it was a mistake but with no idea what he actually wanted for it. He suggested that I multiply my budget by ten. :lol:

I don't see how you can go wrong with a ?50 car, any car, with "delivery mileage". When a headlight bulb goes, scrap it.

I guess I'm a bit fascinated by the idea since I haven't ever owned a car I felt I didn't need to give a flying fuck about.

Try it at least once. It's very relaxing. Some sort of reverse luxury. :lol:

A friend of mine was offered a City Rover with delivery mileage, for ?50 the other week. :lol:
Was he being paid the ?50 to take the Rover away? Might be worth it...

Scrap prices are currently so low it'll cost you more to have it removed from your property than its worth. :lol:

Also, how about expending your budget slightly and going full Dr_Grip?

Wrong kind of Triumph. That one causes clinical depression, consumes all your money and ruins your life. This one makes life better and attracts girls:

The majestic City Rover is still in my mind... it's also still available.

Matthew, a real man would buy this...

You'd have to set off about 3 months before everyone else though.

I feel the CityRover won't even get to the "so bad it's good" area of Yugos and Reliant Robins, it'll just a car that is decidedly unremarkable aside from being sub-par in all aspects of it's design.

I'd be killed very much to death long before I got to 3 hours let alone 3 months. :lol:

I wonder how many times that thing would need refilling between here and Scotchland. Cool little thing anyway.

The drag caused by that plate probably lowers the top speed of the Tomos by 1km/h.
