Hand it in to the local constabulary office (if there is any left around) as it's potentially stolen property?

Even if you did want to use it, the network will kill the phone remotely.

Once they do that the local corner shop will buy it at a good price for export to places where they want the latest stuff but aren't worried where it comes from......

I had a Nissan Navara dragged in over the weekend and finally got around to having a look at it as it wouldn't turn over. Nothing obviously wrong as it was full of oil and water and had no warning lights come on according to the owner.

This will be expensive as it punched a hole in the block as well.

The A55 has landed. Already been for a quick spin round the block as the seized brakes turned out to be just rusty drums. As Cros said a good Column Change. Not a perfect example but an honest, usable car.

Bung some metal putty in the hole. Job done.

Navara spares should be cheap given the number bought back and scrapped due to being a bit* flexy in the middle. What's a decent motor cost?

That will be a comfy old thing to get about in.

It needs to be Japanese to be reliable.
