    Run it for a year or two and see what happens. I used my 124 in the same way I would use that car.
    I wasn't afraid to park it anywhere but it was still a decent runabout.
    Long MOT, low miles, one previous owner and it looks presentable. Under £1000 and it's a nice buy and would be worth breaking at the end of it's days.

    The colour 189 "insert long German word here smorsgren or something" was the most appealing thing about the car. Its the second car I've had in 189.
