    Yep see below sig. non runner (well it does run, but to much rust for mot and a few electrical problems).

    You can always rent a garage. Some english classics are heap to buy and easy to work on.

    I've got an Anglia 105E. It's nowhere near road-worthy, but I will be starting work on it soon (I'm aiming to get it in the garage before Christmas).

    :D smart

    I love old cars, there is something about them. My old man had a dolomite 1850 years ago and he hated it lol... I pleaded with him to let me buy it after he cracked the block (silly sod) he scrapped it :(

    Ive been looking around for one but so many seem to be complete rotters. I would be happy with one that needs a bit of work and still driveable

    I've got a Ford 103E Pop and a Ford 105E Anglia

    Anglia looks like this at the moment, about 90% through a full ground-up rebuild:

    The Pop which is my daily driver looks like this:

    Might rod the Pop, can't decide, it's a lot of fun as it is.

    Ive seen you floating about the forums and always wondered how that anglia was getting on. Is that front/bonnet a one peice unit now?

    And that pop has bags of character, is it all original? :D

    And stop! :D

    Seriously, just bite the bullet and buy one :p

    You can get a nice useable 1850 for about 500 quid if you dig hard enough, with long T&T :)

    Bought methinks :p

    Have to recommend them though, I've had great fun getting this one on the road and am already looking for a project sprint.

    As was said above, renting a garage easily cures the space problem if that is an issue.
