When it comes to cars, everyone wants a bargain. And with cars getting more reliable, more durable and more rot-free than ever they have been, paying pocket money for an older machine need not be a total restoration job.

In other words, old cars have never been such a good buy -- you get a lot of car for your money, and £1,000 is still throwaway money when it comes to cars.

So in the spirit of aiming for fun, low-cost motoring, here's our regular weekly slot following a trawl of Auto Trader's depths to find a drive-away bargain.

This Rover Sterling is quite simply in superb condition throughout.It has been fastidiously looked after,has a years MOT and full service history and really must be seen at only £995

    Well if that is the Honda engine (which I seem to think it isn't) then it's a bargain. If it's not, check the head as mine cost me a small fortune when the gasket went

    Still a nice car, if you're aged 40 or over hehe

    a nice car if you are aged over 40 is something like a Boxster or a TVR or an MX5.

    A rover is a nice car if you are dead and it is being used as a coffin

    the 820 is a rover engine and a T series one at that, very reliable doesnt suffer from any of the HGF problems of the K

    you could get a 820 Vitesse for that sort of money, darn near 200 bhp
