I was mooching face book market place last friday when i came upon a sad little MGZR on sale for £100.
No MOT and suffering from HGF.after a few inquiries, i opted to view it with 3 motives,
1. to repair it
2. to get proficient in the engine dismantling etc as its same engine as my 75 but a 1.4 not a 1.8, but theretically its the same.
3. if its is fixable, give it to my son for hi first car

so went to take a look and all looked ok, p[passenger door didnt open from out side or in, the HGF was evident via the mayo, tyres are new, body shell looked solid, no rot or grazes. charged the battery up enough to see if engine had seized and luckily its ok.


So we agreed a price of £80
Had it transported the huge distance of 2 miles to my garage, where it now sits awaiting repair.

the car is a nice little motor
something for the summer sir...i dont mind if i do!!
