A cat D mk1 MX5 for £500 about 4/5 years ago now. Put it through an MOT where it failed on just about every thing it could have done so broke it for parts and scrapped the rest. Got the best part of a grand back…
Back to cool things – my brother had a seat pair from an APT, and a Citroen DS. And gave them both away on last night on the town in Newcastle before emigrating to NZ….those seats would have looked fab in my hallway..
best one was a excavator- he wanted one for digging a load of his garden out and thought it was cheaper than hiring- and he could sell it afterwards, anyway – he didn’t realise that the machines were listed in bucket capacity and not machine weight….
he thought it was odd no one was bidding on the 4 tonne machine he won- couldn’t even get the wagon up his road when it came!
Not sure I was drunk at the time, but certainly not thinking entirely straight. Mk1 Golf Gti cabriolet. Ran but needed a little bit of cosmetic tidying. Had it parked outside a friends workshop when some scrotes smashed all the windows on Christmas Eve, delightful phone-call to receive that was….
Ended up selling it for a profit shortly after even though it was in much worse condition than when I bought it, plus it wouldn’t start!
