For the comment about not getting a car for under £500.

Today, my parents have purchased an L-Reg Escort for £200. A months tax, 6 months MOT, and it travelled nearly 100 miles to get to where we bought it from that day. A nice sound runner by my dads reckoning and a beautiful test drive. The only issue is the back wheel arches rusting - common for ford escorts of that age - which is halfway through repair anyway and just needs respraying.
