A classic for 2k

(or equivalent) xe.com

I'll start with this:
A-reg Mercedes 500 SEC, a bargain at 1,990.
(I'm not related to the seller!)

Maybe there are other threads to follow?!

Another contender for sub 2k and the cheaper end of the market.

I bought one of those for 100 a few years back, took the rear hubs and brakes off and gave the rest to the blokes in work for their scrap bin.

I bought one for 123.46 a couple of years ago. Drove to Prague and back in it! I should have started a less that 150 thread.

Triumph Spitfires can be had cheaply, and there is a stunning MGBGT on the front cover of Classic, Performance & Retro magazine that was bought for less than 3K (yes I know the thread said 2K...but it was only a little bit over!) Shop around and it's amazing what you can get.

You can go down the Mercedes route and may get a good one, but if it goes wrong, it'll really cost!
MGB / Midget / Spitfire are cheap to buy and you can get all the spares you'll need at reasonable prices as well as technical advice. The cars are pretty reliable,too. I've retired 6 months ago and bought an MGB GT for daily transport. Cost 1500 and I'm doing a 'rolling restoration' as well as driving it daily.

Reading this thread and watching the cheap car challenges on Top Gear depresses me! It is amazing how cheap older European cars are over there.

There's a car yard across the road from my office and they're selling plain, 4 cylinder E36 BMWs for the equiavlent of GBP6000. That's the just an example of the ridiculous prices Australians pay for European cars.

Another of BL's great "if only" cars!

. . . if only BL had had the slightest inkling of the concept of "quality".

Nice.... but I suspect the reserve is over-budget for this thread
