For 110, 000 rubles from the sale of the “carbon” “tens” (ЗР, 2012, No. 1), we decided to buy a foreign car. Machines after serious accidents did not begin to consider: for their repair we have neither specialized equipment, nor corresponding skills. Limited to specimens with mechanical defects or minor body flaws.

Cars were chosen on the Internet. Among the abundance of offers, finding a suitable option was not easy: profitable copies went away even before the ads were published. Professional resellers, with their own agents, managed to get the most delicious chestnuts out of the fire. We had to be content with what was left.

Episode 1

Audi 80 Coupe

100 000 rub

For a seasoned Audi 80 Coupe in 1990, the seller wanted to help out 100, 000 rubles. Judging by the annotation, a minor body repair was required in the form of a replacement for the ragged front wing and a cracked bumper; in reality, everything turned out to be much worse. Over a long life, the car has changed many owners, and each strove to add something from himself. The result was terrifying. Self-tapping screws sticking out of the most unexpected places gave the once elegant car the look of a sub-dump truck. Salon looked no less colorful. When numerous attempts to start the engine failed, we were relieved to set off.

Episode 2

Mercedes-Benz W115

120 000 rub

The next day, an advertisement for the sale of the 1975 Mercedes-Benz W115 in the neighboring city surfaced, supposedly standing in the garage for almost most of his life. For rarity, the merchant asked for only 120, 000 rubles! The only malfunction is that the engine will not start. But, the starter supposedly scrolls it, which means that it is worth hoping for the best. Take it! Alas, dreams broke again. The long-awaited Merc looked like a rusty trough. Corrosion ate a good half of the load-bearing elements of the body, the floor at the feet of the driver and passenger was practically absent, the thresholds turned into dust, and the lower parts of the doors looked like a colander. Having hardly restrained the urge to strangle the seller on the spot, we left home.

Episode 3

Renault Clio

A couple of days later, a promising announcement came up with a muddy photo about the sale of Renault-Clio in 2002 for 100, 000 rubles. According to the seller, the engine did not work at the car and it was necessary to paint the plumage of the front end after a minor accident. Suspiciously cheap - for serviceable analogues of the same year they asked from 180, 000 to 220, 000 rubles. However, the desire to catch luck by the tail won doubts. But, looking at a potential acquisition, they could not believe their eyes: the car was right-hand drive! The value of a possible purchase immediately fell to almost zero.

Episode 4

Volkswagen-T3 Conveyor

An interesting offer is the Volkswagen T3 Transporter of 1989 for 100, 000 rubles. However, just an hour before the meeting, the owner tore off the deal, citing family circumstances. Much later, this car reappeared on the site, but already for 150, 000. It seems that a good demand just spurred the appetite.

The idea to purchase a Transporter sunk into the soul. And now a week later we are standing near the 1985 T3 produced by the Caravel: a burgundy minibus with a native boxer gasoline engine of 1.9 l costs only 80, 000 rubles. Under the numerous layers of paint, the native orange color is visible: it seems that in the distant past, the car worked for German road workers.

Episode 6

A LOOK …

The bodywork was well preserved: the bottom and spars are strong, through corrosion affected only some external panels. The interior is pretty shabby, but if you clean and glue it, it will look decent. By mechanics, it was possible to identify the rumble of the wheel bearing, the faulty stops of the rear door, in addition, the starter worked every other time.

But in general, a good car, you have to take it! After stubborn bidding, the seller lost another 12, 000; as a result, the completely lively Volkswagen cost us 68, 000 rubles. They decided not to register the purchase, limiting themselves to a general power of attorney (1400 rubles). In the appendage, they acquired a CTP insurance transit policy (600 rubles).

In the garage, the first thing they replaced was the collapsed inner CV joint and the wheel bearing (4, 500 rubles). Leaking the rear brake cylinder was cured by replacing the cuff (100 rubles), at the same time pumped the system and updated the working fluid (600 rubles). Starter repair cost 500 rubles. They washed the carburetor and adjusted the idle speed, after which the engine whispered like a new one. Most of the money spent on replacing tires worn to the state of slicks (tires 9060 rubles., Tire fitting 1400 rubles.). This is the price of a specific "commercial" rubber.

They decided to entrust the coloring of the “bus” to professionals. Well-fed metropolitan masters asked for a minimum of 100, 000 rubles for work. In the Moscow Region, they managed to bargain for 90, 000 rubles. Bryansk artisans took over 70, 000, and in Klintsy agreed to 60, 000 rubles. Having contacted the workshop in Baranavichy by e-mail, in just an hour we received a full price list. In the column “Total” it was listed 45, 000 rubles. For this money, the Slav brothers promised to patch holes and paint “Transporter” with the cabin disassembled.

It remained to buy arches for replacement and pack on the road-road. The necessary details were found in the profile store. A new set of Taiwanese non-original cost 4370 rubles. At the same time, the working stops of the tailgate were removed from the remains of the Transporter, which stood at the back of the outlet (400 rubles).

Since the repair threatened to stretch for three weeks, and life away from the family did not suit us in any way (including for financial reasons), we preoccupied buying a return ticket. A place in the general car of a night train cost 950 rubles. But first you have to overcome 850 km "there." In front of the border we bought insurance in the Republic of Belarus, the policy for a month cost 730 rubles. The road in a friendly republic turned out to be even better than in Russia. "Caravel" confidently held 90 km / h. Nothing boded ill. But suddenly, halfway through the engine, something tinkled … The helpless bead rolled to the side of the road. His "heart" was silent …
