I tend to agree with Gazza even though my head gasket has a slight leek. Just had it MOT'd, 111,000, there was nothing to do except for the head gasket. I toyed with the idea of getting it fixed or buying a newer Sportwagon but what's to say the head gasket is not gonna go on that. I've put some sealant in, my Brother did it on his old 75 twin spark and it lasted 2 years, I'll be happy with that.
I pretty much know where I am with the 'wagon, yes it feels a bit loose on the suspension bushings and I'd like to get that sorted, but as long as it goes and is safe, I'll spend the cash on the GT instead.
I'd keep your car if you love it so much, £600- £800 to spend on a car through a year is cheap motoring really if u factor in depreciation.
