Totally agree mate, the right vehicle will come along, they always do. I learnt a while ago never to go into debt for a vehicle as they just a piece of metal. Learnt the hard way after my Ninja ZX6R decided to drive itself into a ditch!!!

It's just a case of searching around

always worth checking ebay regularly, i picked up my v reg hilux 118 on the clock for 2K!! couldnt believe my luck, no body else bid on it!

local papers good aswell, sometimes people dont know what they are selling, good luck!

sussexlad: That Hilux sounds like a steal.

I've been searching ebay and autotrader to get an idea of price/condition. I've been abroad for a few years, so out of the circle when it comes to pricing. I'm just figuring out the lay of the land at the moment.

jnoon: I'll keep an eye out for any 110's and post a link up if I see any good condition hi-caps.

It took me a long time searching for my landy just trying to find the right one for the right price. Can get quite frustrating trying find the right one and can be tempted to just go for whatever but I definitely worth waiting and being patient.

Get yourselves on BCA and Mannheim auctions there's sure to be one near you-seen loads of decent pickups go for good prices.

I'll be selling my Defender pickup (blatant plug) at the end of this month, but it's a tad over your budget and it's a 90. It's very nice though
