Default A bargain even handyandy would be proud of

hi,

On the weekend I sold the autobox I got with my cosworth v6 for the same price I got the engine and box for, free engine not bad really even if the engine needs work.

Well done Bobby

A self financing engine

That is the reason as to why my donor, number Two ended up as a net profit .... Great when it works out that way

Nice when a few quid can be made... Neither of my 2 24V's owe me any money.

Paid 46 for my donor, used all the bits I needed, sold the shell without any ID for 30, the wheels went for 40 and still have plenty left to make me some more cash....

Of my 27 car history...

Still own 4
Sold 12
Stripped 10
Building 1

And I striped another one that newver officialy became mine.

Strippig is the best way to make money back on most low value cars.

And in hindsight I probably would have stripped a few more of them.. Like a Pug 405STDT that i sold for 75 and my carlton that I only got 70. Both still very good cars but were going to cost a few hundred to put issues right...

I keep a running total of all my car costs since about 6 years ago...
