Well now that the Corsa is living with Pow I thought I'd put up a thread of the new car.

The Ad photos:






After looking at a few nasty 944's I found this little (soon to be) gem on car and classic. It was up for 1700 with a power steering leak, no MOT and Sorn'd.

I decided to bite the bullet and go visit under the impression that it might be a dog like the others but was cheap. I knew it would need work as it was half my budget but for a car that was potentially good I thought it would be worth going to see.

Saturday my Dad and I went to visit a lovely couple in their 60's, they were running around flapping around the car trying to get it to start again. It was all hot so we knew it had run but we couldn't get it running after.

Looked round it with my Dad, both pointing out faults with the car. This I think then scared the woman into thinking it was better off scrapped which made her say "take it away for 1k" We carried on looking around and ended up snapping it off them as the faults we have aren't crazy bad and 1k is an offer we couldn't refuse!

So now have 2K to sort the thing out!

So Sunday we picked it up:




Back home:




So that's it so far, we are now in the process of trying to get it to run. We are vaguely in the right direction as the tacho isn't bouncing which it should so this can point us in the right direction in terms of ECU/Sensors.

Now to get it started and whack it in for its MOT!!!

You practically stole it for that price! It's no loss either because you can break it for more than that too

Looks good. I don't like the rear end of these but other than it's ok. I like the interior.
