MG Metro 1300
1983 A. I bought this car in April 1989, and sold it in September 1990. It was bought off of a back-street car dealer for £2450. It had covered about 68000 miles and was in generally good condition. As always for a first car I loved it. During the time I had it the wheels became quite corroded, so I re-sprayed them, and also the front wings went rusty (common problem) so I re-did those too. I put a fairly crappy Sparkrite remote control alarm in the car (as if anyone was going to nick it). The Metro was traded in against the Citroen AX GT in September 1990. I can't remember how much I got for it - I think that it was about £1450. I hardly had to spend any money on servicing the Metro, and sold it at 88,000 miles.
