156 Sportswagon

Long Serving Sportswagon


I've had my 51 reg 156 Sportswagon from new. Great car - now done 235,000 miles! We've had our moments - crankshaft sensor failure, replacement engine, most of the suspension replaced, AC compressor died - usual stuff. Now it's MOT time and she failed - mainly on rusted floorpan.

Up till now I've needed a good car for work and would get it fixed (a bit/lot of welding etc) but I don't need one anymore, so I am wondering what to do next. I really don't like the idea of a breakers yard - we've been together too long and she motors beautifully - but there aren't many options for a car with this mileage

Any thoughts would be very welcome.
