Hi there, my elderly father has decided at 90 to stop driving. He has a blue 5 door golf driver that has done just over 100,000 miles from new. The MOT runs out the end of the month, and he was going to scrap it. I told him to hold fire, while I checked with you guys to see if it is worth me trying to sell it? Thank you.

AS long as it runs, and no rust, it's worth SOMETHING to someone...

Hell, if he's gonna scrap it, why not YOU take it and run it?

A friend, had a 1984 Plymouth Sundance, that he said needed
$800.00 worth of work to pass inspection; hood latch, windshield,
and a complete cat back exhaust. So, he said, he was just going
to donate it to charity. I said; "I'm a charitable kind'a guy..." He
said; "You want it?" I said, yep. Well, I put the hood latch in
myself (you fetch junk-yard), had another friend who owns a
muffler shop put the window in, exhaust on, inspect and emission
it for $295.99! About 6-months later, I lent it to my sister BY
law, she wrecked it and I got an $1195 check from her insurance
company. So, you mat get lucky...

Funny thing too, when I was taking out the hood latch from another
car, it was on TOP of another car, and the only thing I could stand on
was the front passenger side tire of the car under it. See where this
is going? Yeah, so as soon as I removed the latch, the tire rotated,
and down I went, between the tire and door... Heh Heh....

$1195 payout in the end, was well worth it.... Free car, free money...
