    As some you may know I am losing my job in a couple of weeks and with it my company car.

    I am looking for a cheap run around until I can find permanent work and therefore afford a decent car.

    If any of you have or know of a cheap car for sale could you please drop me a PM with more details.

    Alternatively if anyone knows some one who has a car they don't use that I could borrow for a couple of months I would obviously pay towards tax and insurance

    I started a new job in January, but on Christmas Eve, the power steering blew on my car. I'm currently hiring one from Hertz at about £88 per week.

    Sorry Barney, I have a car, a very cheap car... But even if it weren't off to car heaven in a couple of weeks I doubt you'd want to be seen dead in it (ask Mucker or JTR) And it would not be suitable for your better half, getting in and out is a struggle for me.

    There's a bloke in Notts does really cheap cars, and is very willing to move some way on prices....

    Might be worth a look to see if he has anything suitable. Good luck.
