I once bought a a car for £150
a 1994 Series 2 Citroen XM. 2.1 TD. It was SORN with no MOT. The gear shifter was almost seized, it had a sticky height correcter, so the pneumatic suspension would rise to the top and stay there everytime.

I bought several replacement parts for it, which I never fitted as I had no mechanical know-how whatsoever.

Eventually, I stripped it for parts and sold them on eBay, then scrapped the shell.

As the value of scrap metal was at an all-time high, I actually doubled my investment on it. Not bad for something that sat in the garage for 18 months
