Is it just me, but when you are looking for a motor there are very few you really want? So you widen your scope.

But the minute you do buy something, loads you would want to buy suddenly appear in the classifieds.

I find that the answer is not to look for a specific car but look within a specific budget and consider anything. When I got my current Mercedes I was looking for a Golf GTi. About the only thing that they have in common is that they are both German. But a search on ebay with a 30 mile distance of my post code (which in ebay miles is closer to 50!!) and with a maximum budget of 1000 turned up a Mercedes C180 estate fairly close by. Worth a look I thought so I went and had a gander, and bought it. Definitely not the type of car I would normally buy but its condition was good and it drove very well. Six years later I'm still driving it!! (still got a hankering for another GTi though).
