I bought a 146 last year from a friend of a friend's father, etc, etc.
The car drove well enough, and i never even noticed the leak from the water pump. The car had stood on a drive for 6 months. Well, I wish that I had checked underneath, as it had always been well serviced. I wish that I had because 2 months later, it failed it's MOT on chassis rust, which I was told was not worth repairing as it needed discs and pads also.
The fact is ..I fell in love with the unmarked black leather sports upholstrey with red piping and matching door trims, which, I believe was a rare option for this car. I also loved the 6 CD changer.
I was so upset I just locked it in my damp garage for a year and tried to forget about it. My garage needs pulling down and rebuilding, so I have nowhere to put the car.
Do you think that I should break it for spares or pull out the upholstry and sell it to the local scrap yard. Any suggestions would be welcome.
