Traded my way up ... 6 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 88
I traded my way up in car ... easy done ..

First I got my hands on a cheap cynos and tidied it up


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Cynos - 350
Parts - 100

Total - 450

Then I traded it for a god awful saxo with a bodykit ..
I had a trade in mind before I took this thing .. Rang the new buyer who came and test drove the car .. He decided that wheel spinning was a good option and ended up bursting a hole in the gearbox ... A little argument happened and we came to an arrangement ..


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Swaped value - 450
Gearbox - 100
other parts - 50

The Scrote gave me 100 and a 32 inch TV ( value probably 200 ) and a Mitsubishi Mirage

Total - 500


The Mirage was mint ... and the girl who works for me wanted the Mirage as a swap for her Pajero Junior ... So now I had a Pajero Junior and a 32 inch tv


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Total still - 500

Next the Pajero Junior went up for sale after 10 mins of welding on the exhaust and a good polish ... I was offered a Seat Toledo ... and 200 euros .. I took it


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Swap value - 500
Cash my way - 200
parts for car - 75

Total - 375

The Toledo was in such good condition my mate decided he wanted it and offered me a honda civic coupe as a straight swap for the Seat ... I didnt want the civic but as it was a mate what could i do ... I took it ..


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Total - 375

Next came the Cream on the Pie ... The MR2 Turbo ... seen advertised on done deal a nice tubby ... boy racered up but nothing that couldnt be fixed ... Rang the guy and arranged a straight swap ..


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Swap Value - 375
petrol - 25

Total 400

and I still have the 32 inch TV ...

Here is the end result ... standing me buttons

Its a hobby for me ... I enjoy it ... Buying and selling ... and always have something different to drive and tinker with ... Better than listening to the kids and kitchen commander

...those cars would attract an awful amount of tyre kickers - my head would be melted

fair play thought is that the tubby with the yellow reverse lights on DoneDeal? was seriously cheap if it was fair play

I've a few buddys that do this buying swaping and selling of cars constantly but they always end up with a rot box in the end thats worth fuckall

would'nt have the head for all that messing about looking at cars constant calls and txts and arranging viewing of cars it would drive me insane

but congrats on pulling a tubby out of it
