I brought a 1982 Opel Senator 2.5E FOR £250. It had a broken tappet and a sticking front caliper, got those fixed and you couldn't hear the engine on tick over, and it was so comfortable to drive, went to Wiltshire in it and it ate the miles up in its stride.

I sold it when it hit 18-20 miles to the gallon. It had 149,500 on the clock and I got £900 for it. It still sounded sweet, but I couldn't afford to run it, as in fuel costs.
