Is It Me ? Empty Is It Me ?

A random thought occured to me as I was driving Boris back home after consuming steak and chips .
When I bought my first car (the one Boris is based on ) , it was 15 years old at the time and cost me 250 .
It is still possible to buy a 15 year old Eurobox for that price , but where are you going to find a 15 year old Mini costing 250 these days ?

many years ago I purchased a mini for 10 yes 10 . the engine came with it too but was positioned in the passengers floor well .I stripped it down(the car) and currently still use the doors off it on my mini .minis are not cheap now to buy which is a bonus if you own one!as they have shot up in value. jim.

My Escort is 15 years old, and it was only a few hundred quid, and there's many more cars on eBay for a lot cheaper, so yes, you can.

Been visiting the car auctions recently out of interest with a friend and you can get lots of car for 250, but who knows what they are really like!

To put it into context, how much were you earning when you bought a mini for 250?
