1971 Hillman Avenger DL 1.3
Great first car
Bought for less than a hundred quid and towed home from an auction - where do I start??
Despite the above, a great first car. To be fair it was a decent motor - somebody had altered the plug leads round so it wouldn't run properly, I assume in a bid to get a bargain. Well I beat them to it.
A good service when I got it home and all was fine. The biggest enemy was rust!!
All in all I learned a hell of a lot from this car and had real fun with it - most of the engine technology I learned is now redundant and cars don't rust now, so all a bit passé really.
PCW 879 J - great car, probably part of your fridge freezer now!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
