My 2000 156 V6 has become redundant, my wife and I no longer have a need for two cars. It's due for a cam belt change this year under the 5 year rule although it's only done 16k miles since the last renewal. It's close to having done 120k all together.
There are a number of other items which need money spent on them, two new rear tyres for a start and probably a new rear silencer box, judging by the horse's tail of fibres coming out of the exhaust pipe!
There are also a few niggling failures that we've been putting up with for some time but which could probably be sorted with effort rather than much cash, such as the heater hot/cold air mixer flap, currently bodged with a manual lever, neither of the rear windows will work and the sun roof has a problem with sliding open although it will tilt ok. There is a slight oil leak from the sump/block joint which the local indie thinks is a slightly corroded locating dowel.
On the plus side it had a new MOT in December 2017 and as far as I (and the local garage which did the MOT) can see there is very little corrosion.
I imagine that the value of the car is less than the cost of replacing the cam belt but it seems a great pity just to scrap it. The car is a joy to drive, sometimes I think I prefer driving it to my GT but then I'll get in the GT and decide I was wrong!
What to do? Keeping it is not an option. It has to go before the road tax and insurance are due in a couple of months.
Has anybody any suggestions?
