Hi, that looks like a good car.
I think it would help potential buyers if you gave some indication of how much you ae asking for the car.

Good luck with the sale. :goodluck:

My eldest was really interested in this but the price is out of his limit, so he will have to get a modern car , I said about a little fiesta with a 1.2 or 1.4 engine as they will be cheaper to run on a day to day . And get him to work . So we will not be having two capris in the family . Perhaps one day .....

Insurance will no doubt be cheaper for him too.....The Corsa C was always a cheap first car to insure, especially the 1.0 or 1.2.

:agree: JM, Insurance for young drivers is outrageous and usually more than the car is worth :spank:
Imo, if it was around £500 for an average 1.2 to 1.4 engine for the first year, that would be fine.
If they have an accident then ok put the price up, but don't assume they are going to make a claim anyway...

It's the large deposits they have to put down that's the problem imo.
Why can't they build £100k houses and mortgage them over 25/35 years :headscratch:

That’s true Andy there building this place called Ebbsfleet and a two bedroom house what is so small with a postage stamp garden is 400k what is crazy but there is ( really sorry ) foreign people moving from London and buying them . How they get the money god only knows . It might sound really bad but it’s the truth also on our local news they were saying that family’s from Landon were being given 100k to move out of London in to these houses ( sorry if I have open a can of worms )

I understand JM.
Many people from London move to or have second homes in the Westcountry too. Nothing wrong with that, but it doesn't help the young get on the housing ladder :headscratch:

Yes your right we did think about moving to Cornwall in 2004 I even had a job to go to , as Marie is Cornish and has a lot of family there . We looked at a house in malplash just outside Truro but got beaten by a London couple who wanted this massive house as a 2nd home they even gave over the original price .

Funny how this happen but now I look back if we had moved I don’t think I would be here . What is such a long story .
