    That's amazing. You bought it for only £500, and yet it looks like it's worth about… £500.

    So if your ruling out the Hyundai coupe and Toyota Celica because of their humble origins than the MG should not be counted. It uses 2 rover metro subframes front and rear with hydrolastic in early F models, clever use of resources but hardly original pedigree

    £500 sports car, not so much a challenge more of a desire to go into debt

    I just checked Carsales in Australia, searching for registered 2 door sports cars under $1kAUD, which is barely higher than 500 quid
    There is literally 1 option in the whole country, a 1992 Ford Capri with 374,000kms

    You guys are lucky to have so many cheap cars available

    Are cars just cheaper in the UK? Here in America, you're looking at older Honda Civics hovering around $1000 minimum. Yet you guys are able to find old sports cars for cheaper...

    This was great but it would’ve been cool if all three of you competed and had say a week to each buy your own car and reveal them at the end.

    I'm in the US and would kill to be able to get a car like that for a few hundred bucks. Just to have for fun and the weekends. I've looked around. Just seems like for that price cars are way way worse here in the States.

    I had MGTF, lovely car economical 38 urban 48 mway.....but, gasket blew 9 months down the line, then when repaired it blew the lower hoses. So moral is get those replaced as well as the gasket. Also you can do a instant tune up, just pump the throttle several times with the ignition on. Prior to that a car i looked at a £2500 Z3. It looked like it had been pulled out of a river.
