This is a question Cheap Tat

OneEyedMonster remindes us about the crap you can buy in pound shops: "Batteries that lasted about an hour and then died. A screwdriver with a loose handle so I couldn't turn the damn screw, and a tape measure which wasn't at all accurate."

Similarly, my neighbour bought a lawnmower from Argos that was so cheap the wheels didn't go round, it sort of skidded over the grass whilst gently back-combing it.

What's the cheapest, most useless crap you've bought?

my DAD liked driving in his car...
My car history isn't bad. My dad, however... from when I can remember...

1981 Vauxhall Chevette 1200 saloon in hand painted two-tone blue & silver

1983 Toyota Starlet. Beige with a black roof.

1986 Austin Metro HLS. Beige. Lasted a week.

1985 Austin Montego L. Red. Good car, but very slow.

1990 Proton 1.3GLS saloon. White with a gold stripe and GLS on the rear quarter panels... top of the range motoring, indeed.

1987 Nissan Laurel saloon, in what can only be described as "a hint of turd".

1992 Vauxhall Nova 1.2 Luxe saloon. Terrible.

1989 Ford Sierra 1.8LX. Grey. Had been round the clock more times than I cared to think about but was a nice enough car.

1999 Ford Escort 1.6 Finesse. Arrived after the Sierra finally gave up the ghost. Not really a bad car, but everyone seemed to have them... then again, who would have bought any of the other junk he had?

Other than the Escort he never paid more than £1000 for a car. Few of them made their second MOT.
