    You should do a 1k car challenge as for like a first car it had to be front wheel drive cheap to run and it should be practical and good on Fuel as I’m 18 and I really am struggling on what to buy as a first car I’m sticking with a 1k budget

    Great work guys. On future cheap car challenges (please do more!) please can you get an appraisal or do a mechanical view of the car after buying? (Car Weeezard, British version?) See what value you've got as if the engine falls out the following day, that £500 isn't such a good payment ;-)

    Right I’ve got an idea, so you have to purchase a saloon, a sports car and a hatchback all for £3000, not £3000 each, they have to add up to £3000

    Great video, instantly reminds me of Top Gear! One recommendation: try to work on the audio quality of the parts where you sit together on the couch. It can be a bit hard to follow what you are saying. An extra mic on your person might work! Keep it up!

    I did something similar after I sold the MX-5 for home restoration money. I still wanted another car, and refused to spend more than $500. I didn't have a time crunch, and it didn't have to be running, but a friend sent me a link to a car that I was intentionally ignoring. The price was dropping on it, so I made a call and had my friend help. I ended up with a silver, manual, convertible Mustang. Another $110 got it running, and I had a battery lying around that worked. I lost interest after buying it though. I'll clean it up and register it eventually. Worst case: it's worth more now than when I got it = profit.
