    Default Dreamer of the month

    Today went past a Morris Marina for sale near the new roundabout SH16 Brighams Creek intersection.
    For $2500 stopped and had a look as after a car for my 15 year old thought at that price it would be a minter.
    But no its rough and got some rust in it only reason for price I can think of is they use one on that BBC motoring show.
    Have been out bid on TM for an Austin Princess so may bid on a Kimberly after I have a look at it.
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    uh...in case you haven't noticed the price of all those relics have skyrocketed, Shitty corollas and escorts have been going for thousands of dollars.

    Might have been a good first car 20 years ago....but....it aint 20 years ago.

    Yep Escorts are worth a bit if you can find one not filled with bog.
    Never noticed the BMC cars rocketing in price though, was hoping to get a good BLMC car for less than a grand.

    Nasty.
    We made the mistake of buying one of those once - from parents.
    Worst heap of **** we ever owned.
    Door handles would snap off if you so much as touched them, nearly wrecked itself one day going over a pothole - we went back later in a real car to see where this gigantic hole was - small scuffed bit on the road.
    After owning it for about 5 minutes the transmission killed itself.
    Took forever to find a wreckers willing to accept it.
    wipe your paws.
