Does the engine rattle like a skeleton having a wank in a biscuit tin?

The other reason I've spend 0 time on it is that I've been car hunting for both my Dad and my sister. Dad has bought a rather lovely A170 CDI today as the spec was cheap, diesel, automatic, loads of room, economic, cruise control. 2.3k later a sub 50k A170 CDI LWB Elegance with parking sensors has been purchased. Been looking for a Twingo for my sister but they're all shit. She's looking at a 1.2 GT now

Few bits of the Ka and box to keep so don't be too hasty to lash, off the top of my head the lambda sensor and the gearbox speed sender but I might add to that list. Even if you don't need them they'll sell.

I reckon you should strip it down and spend 5 years restoring it to factory condition!

Pow can type things on the Internet. Like most people on here, that's about as mechanical as they get. Typing.
