A beautiful car. It's probably nowhere near the reserve.

You could take a drive over to Miseryside and pick this one up for around 3 grand. Go on STEMO, treat yourself.  ;)

Or if your feeling really mad. A 6 litre V12, twin turbo, 500+bhp version. Was 115,000 new apparently. 8)

I'm a Yorkshireman now, it's 50 miles to the gallon or nowt.  ;D

No pleasing some people.  ::)
Right then, buy this one too and use it most of the time for close to infinite MPG. Use the CL on Sundays only and MPG will average way above 50.  :P

Highways would be my guess. The shogun is a favourite of the road wombles and I can see them clocking up that kinda mileage.

Mercedes ML will tow 3.5t, license permitting...

Cheap enough to be disposable  ;)

Mitsubishi and Hyundai both reliable, but any significant repairs will cost Some of our older Shotguns, '57/8 have done nearly 300k miles, but still fetch well north of 3k at auction :o

Gollum. What do you do?

Vectra C also worth a look... Wear mileage well and start from 250... Just avoid the dti and 2.2 petrol :y

find a car that is ok body wise ,not much rust and all repairs are simple bolt on
That's fair recommendation. I must check availability and prices. Where are the rust problem areas?
wheel arches, sills, front and rear chassis mountings ,all the usual suspects
but if your buying newer ,chances are there will be less rust than an omega
but it is still worth spending time trying to prevent rust ,even on a newer car
from my experience, the more miles a car has done,the more prone it is to rust
and in your case Terry ,your great with the spanners at fixing things but scrap a car when rust rears it's ugly bill  ;D
same as me  :y

Is Haynes for the older Omega, I cant find one for the 03 years?
How do I know if plumbed backwards? has anyone the pipe order and where they go too?

Thanks for all the advice
Mick
And? They're fundamentally identical  ::)

Put another way I wouldn't have bothered to suggest it if it didn't answer your question  ;)

Put a clutch in the Omega whilst you choose. Don't forget that you will be choosing long term, so don't rush it :y
It's a 4 cylinder, 18 years old, and rusty. I doubt it will pass MOT next year. Doesn't seem worth a new clutch.
Anything you buy may not pass its next MoT ::)

Might as well buy anything ticketed for as little as you can and throw it away when the MoT runs out.

Possibly time the kids sourced their own transport as well, but that is a side issue...
