For the most part, I think bangernomic motorists buy cars that were never that impressive in the first place, let alone in old age. It makes sense though - the whole point is to do things cheaply and running an ancient jaguar or porsche will be expensive (even if it's not that expensive to buy). But what if you want luxury or high performance on a bangernomical budget?

To make this interesting, you've got just 1,000 to play with and that has to get you something roadworthy.

GO!

No takers, huh? I'll get you started. Jaguar XJ6 (Example with worlds longest URL [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.])

I'll also open up nominations for the 'unusual' category. This is cars that are rare, but because they flopped (think suzuki x90).

The best banger money can buy?????????????????

I give to you the Mercedes Benz W201 (aka as the 190e/190d)

Best car i ever had bar non! Mine cost 1200 because it was diesel but ptrols can be had sub 1k

Probably the best bet in the petrol is the 2.0 30mpg and military bunker build quality Thumb

I want another,biggest mistake i ever made selling mine!

But i wanted a camper van so it went in favour of the van which wasnt very good Headbang

Ive youve never driven a W201 go on treat yourself :Co:

A great car, though most (probably all) will be poverty spec. for this money (i.e. no leather, no AC, wind down windows, etc.), so it won't feel very luxurious.

You people are spoilt. ANY car that goes is a luxury, and therefore luxurious. With knobs on if it has aircon.

Top Gear did something on this theme a while ago, but with a budget the same as the cost of a new Nissan Pixo. Mercedes CL 600 and a high end BMW featured, which the two idiots bought allegedly with thier own money.

I'd say its perhaps more of a gamble at that price/model range (and for higher stakes) since I'd bet those things are basically un-fixable. I'd go older, but a grand is still higher stakes than I'd like, and it'd be a bigger gamble here in Taiwan, because no one maintains anything.

IIRC James May bet they'd come to grief, but I don't remember any follow-up on it.

I got a high-roof Transit camper for 800 quid. Does a double bed and full standing head room count as luxury

To a certain set of eyes, I guess.
