Auction auction auction.
I had £250 available for my first car and went to an auction.
Walked around looking at all the cars available that I thought would be in my price range, but I didn't want a metro or fiesta that everyone seemed to have. Then I caught sight of a beautiful, bright yellow VW Polo Coupe Sport on a B reg. My Dad laughed at me saying it was going to be rubbish, plus it was bright yellow! I fell in love with it and waited for it to go up for auction. When it did, I was really nervous, bidding against another guy... but won... for £90!
I had the car for years, even when I stopped driving it I kept it on my drive. I was always going to turn it into a track car. Unfortunately the missus made me sell it, as I hadn't even looked at it for two years. Sold it on eBay for £41. Charged the battery, and it started first time! Couldn't believe it. I wish I hadn't sold it.
Anyway, so the moral of the story is, if you're looking for a banger there's no harm in going to an auction.
