OK - Friday afternoon fun.

I started this a couple of years back. As all the links/pics will be long since dead, I'll treat myself us all to a new thread.

The scenario: You need to buy a car to get to work. Urgently. You've only got a grand and you're going to have to view and collect it by BUS yikes

Yep; times are hard


Here's how to play:

- Go to Autotrader
- click 'more options'
- Put your postcode in
- set maximum price to 'up to £1,000'
- set Distance to - within 10 miles

Then, from the results, choose and post the ONE 'local bargain' of your choice, i.e. the one you'd choose to get you to work each day.
(extra points for having cash left over for tax, insurance, fuel etc. coke and hookers!)



Here's mine to start:

I had 42 cars to choose from

A bargain £750

47 cars to choose from, this one top of the heap by a long way. No mention of mileage, but how high can it be?

Best of a slightly quiet bunch.

This or an R plat Hyundai Coupe 2.0 for £1000. This wins on price, and shades it on badge. Just.

That's cheating he said autotrader, and who wants a car that probably smells like Rab C Nesbit has slept in it.
