Be careful, "the interior is non exhistant!!"

There is that crack on the wing that needs to be repaired - that could effect the integrity of it in a collision. That and the fact that its a heap of junk!

Also, like the fact that the guy has his young son sitting right next to him whilst he sticks 2 fingers up at the camera.

You can't beat a good rolemodel can you.

Must admit I was looking on ebay for a cheap replacement
I thought "replace one classic with another"


and no, I'm not a hairdresser!

Re: Could this tempt you away from Alfa?

Current bid £220 - seems about right.

Who in their right mind would spend £2k spraying a 16yr old Citreon AX which is probably worth hundreds at best ?

And before you ask it's not going to tempt me away from my Spider - it may get me more looks and comments but unfortunately the wrong type.

Exactly - £2000 of his dole money.
I suppose if I think of it that way, our taxes have probably funded this "project" in some way.

Bigger question:
Who would waste even £20 on a car like this?

Not only that, but check out how much they spend (or rather WASTE) on "improving" what was already perfectly decent.

I've never really understood it myself

Re: Could this tempt you away from Alfa?

Just noticed the further pics at the bottom of the page.

WTF has he/she/it done with the back end ?

Also they're not kidding re the lack of interior.

There's a few on Pistonheads for c.500 but this one's only suitable for petrol & matches.

To be honest the petrol you'd need to burn the thing would probably cost more than the cars worth!

Gotta love the spelling too. "Rimz". Nice.

NINE previous owners. 85 worn out horses ready for the knackers yard. 6 chavbags willing to bid for it on ebay!

Surely this is the sort of car which ends up on Top Gear being propelled at high speed (by other means than it's own engine no doubt) into a caravan?

Re: Could this tempt you away from Alfa?

Hang on I've just had a great idea:

I know I should know the answer to this but I'm long time out of law-school:

Is it still Arson if you set a car on fire which you own?

Do you know, I don't think it is...

Re: Could this tempt you away from Alfa?

We could acquire it on behalf of the London & SE Region then park it up behind one of those flame spitting Puntos at the Ace Cafe.

20 from each of us should do it but who's going to collect it and drive it up.

It's made of tin-foil and airfix parts with a bit of rubber and glass thrown in for good measure. What a heap of cack!

I'd leave it under a tree for the birds to crap on it...hang on, he musta beat me to it!
Do us all a favour mate and drive it off a bridge with your six mates squashed up in the back - before you go hitting someone with a decent motor.
just when you think you've seen it all...I despair, I really do..
