Bit strange to have bought it when you don’t know what to do with it!
Guess you bought it simply to make money on the purchase? OK.
Only you know it’s condition and it’s apparent worth over what you paid.
Breaking it? Shame if it’s economically ‘repairable’. If you do break it, it will depend on how quickly you want your return and what space you have to store the parts.
It might be getting to a point where too many have been broken and secondhand spares are plentiful, and reasonably priced.
If it's a good runner and needs a small amount of work to get it through an MOT then it may be worth doing, then either drive and enjoy it, or sell on to someone who would appreciate it. Either way, these cars are worth preserving if economically viable.
Depends how much you paid for it, what the condition is like, year etc. What would it need for the MOT.
Can you tuck it away in the garage and do it up for use in the spring.
Do you have the time or space to break it for spares.
Bought mine cheap, and bit of work and got myself a cheap rag top to use, and which won't upset me too much if/when it gets too much to keep running.
As mentioned above you must have had some sort of urge to part with the pennies when you bought it.
The battery gradually deteriorated, then failed, after I bought the car about 1½ years ago – to my delight, I found a receipt for it with the car’s paperwork, and it was less than a year old, so Euro Car Parts replaced it under warranty.
Now, less than another year later, it’s failed again. I...
When replacing plugs on TF I discovered plastic from the clips at the top of the hole all had broken off and fallen in making it impossible to get the socket on the plug. I guess it has got hot and so is partially melted so I had to chip it out.then suckling out with straw on vacuum!
I've been trying to replace the rear brake lines and as they were all corroded at the t-piece! Anyway I'm now in a position where I managed to get the t-piece from the car unfortunately the t-piece came off with the stud that was holding it to the bodywork!!! Obviously this is is...
New Map Here
I've imported Jan's map and updated it with everyone in the previous thread who has more than 10 posts on this board (a few of you need to post a bit more) .
If you'd like to be added or changed, post your car's colour and at least the first half of your postcode.
Haven't crashed a car since the 70’s, as far as I can remember, though there have been a couple of near-death motorcycle crashes.
So tonight I was driving home, round a roundabout, then peeling off onto a main road – don’t think I was doing more than 35 or so. Accelerating gently out of the...
