    hmmmmmmmmm what to get

    just been given the go ahead by dad to use the driveway to house a project car, get in

    choice is what to get, dont wana go above £500, as i want a fixer upper.

    options im thinking atm are

    triumph dolomite

    origonal austin mini

    vw beetle

    or a capri

    id love a mk1 astra, but will never get one for £500

    let me know what you think, must be a classic, from 70s or earlyer uptil early 80s

    You can get a MK1 Astra for £500 or under, but it will need a lot of work.

    Depends what exactly you're wanting to do - what level of fixing upping etc

    yes they are. my uncle has a 3.0 Capri (rare) which has only done about 8k from brand new.... although he got pissed off with me and my cousins burning out the rear tyres
