So your uncle in London, the one With The Connections and a buddy with a shipping line, says hey niece/nephew you got $1324.40 from that stock tip, £1066 in Brit currency, lemme pick something up for you!
And he’s in the diplomatic status emeritus club, meaning your car can be any freaking year and you are still home free, because, like, magic license plates something like that.
And he saved that shipping magnate’s daughter’s life at her cotillion, so, like, free shipping FOR FREAKING EVER for anything that can fit on a freaking boat.
That’s one thousand and sixty-six pounds. Heh. 1066. I’m so freaking witty.
I will now repost that link.
So, for whatever combination of reasons, used cars in the UK are diabolically inexpensive. You could combine a package of cars for an ideal enthusiast scuderia for 1066 and from funds left over still get a couple pounds for tracking down the Matchbox/Hot Wheels equivalent for at least one of the cars INCLUDING SHIPPING for those toys.
(Okay, maybe two or three cars for 1066 Pounds is hyperbole, as I have discovered, but, yeah, it’s an exciting thought...)
I would start with Pete over here for 425 Pounds,
And maybe this gorgeous 1.9 TDI with 200k miles for five hundred,
WITH SEXY CLOTH SEATS!!!!!
Or to hell with a fleet and just go for this Vel Satis, six digit mileage sure but it’s got a VQ motor as far as I know, one thousand Pounds,
