Anyone Want My Bucket?

Not sure if this should be in the Marketplace section or not but..
I have a kombi that I have driven into the ground. Engine works good, so does the trans. Value of the car if repaired about 900 CHF. Cost in Switzerland to bring it to a value of 900 CHF, about 3000 CHF. Anybody so blind they want to accept the worst decision possible into their driveway?

I'll throw in a 2 pound bag of Brown Sugar!

PS...any recommendations for auto exporters or motivated arsonists in the Dietikon area?

Have gas...will light.

Perfect project car for masochists and people from Detroit.

Re: Anyone Want My Bucket?

There's a few Bulgarians operating in my area, with a transit size car transporter and trailer.
I see beat up old bangers on the transporter, so I'm going to guess that they're 'acquiring' these cheap and shipping back home to fix up and sell.


Failing all else, put the forefinger of each hand just inside your mouth and pull gently sideways, to make your mouth wide ...... and just say 'bucket'.

Not to mention it's in the wrong section as well

Confloozed, are you actually giving this away, or are you just looking for advice on disposal?

Re: Anyone Want My Bucket?

Have you considered advertising it on EF for 5,000chf?
Does it have the all important sport seats - worth at least 3,000chf

You know that would be my normal Modus Operandi, however, I think it would degrade it's attributes. It's got Detroit, or Olten if you prefer, written all over it.

If it can do it in less than 12 parsecs then I'll have it.

It is a knackered Xantia Estate - you're a braver man than me if you try!

Re: Anyone Want My Bucket?

Useless Update...
I drove it to an exporter's yard I had "negotiated" with from time to time, and on this car. He told me to bring it one fine, dreary Saturday. He wasn't there when I got there.

I left a note with my number, inside the car locked, that I would be back in 3 days with the keys and he could have it.

A family emergency had me on a plane back to the states for about 2 months, he never called my number. When I got back, the car was gone. Was it taken without the ausweiss card, stolen, did a fleet of flying unicorns sweep in and take it away to a happier and more understanding Adriatic pasture? I have no idea.

But it is gone.

Re: Anyone Want My Bucket?

If you're after any insurance money you'd best note the name of all the posters here and then delete the thread. And then hunt down and kill everyone who posted, except me of course. Because I've got your back covered.

That'll be $ 150 please.

Oh dear ... I've posted on this thread, so I've just put the index finger from each hand into both sides of my mouth and pulled to widen ..... and then said 'bucket'
