Djw Johns terrible cars and his bad decisions regarding them

Probably had it years?

I bought a 98 corsa auto that she had owned from new.

Only sold it as she was relocating and getting married etc

Yup, my grandad bought it in 2002, for 7k according to the invoice I found. My gran took it when he died but missed her fiesta so then my uncle got it and has had it for 15 years.

Well, if you insist 😂

Well this took a turn! Didn't realise the Brava made it that late!

Fingers crossed the rust isnt too bad, looks tidy and well cared for as long as it can be sorted!

Fiat has made its last journey. Expectations where low. And it didn't reach them.

Ah well, nothing lost for me bar 15 minutes of hammering it.

Bored at work and realised I didn't put up the replacement for the mini but it doesn't need its own thread.

Still needing a diesel for work so it's a 1.9 150bhp thing with 153,000 miles when I got it. In the bangernomics category of value.

Nice barge. My father in law is using my 9-3 at the moment, 226000 miles and still quick! Mines the 150 diesel too. I had to use it the other day for a tip run as well. I also had the chance to fit some of those Vauxhall wheels but didn’t in the end, they look good!

I'm not a massive fan of them but they'll do fine.

I start a new job in 2 months thats 4 miles from home instead of 45-60 so I'm not sure how long past then this will stay for

@Donny_Dog ok. It's not a long story though.

I've owned cars for less time but I'm not sure if I ever covered so few metres in one.
Was offered it, took it, offered a friend the spare alloy fuel tank that it bizarrely came with, he bought the lot.
What's he doing with the rest?!
Why did you buy it in the first place! 😂
