The beavertail I'm hoping to book for Bluebird collection is having its MOT today......

 

Bluebird?! I don’t keep track of everything on here, I must’ve missed previous mention of that one.


The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Not been on here for a while, a mixture of holidays, work, family and the website issues got in the way.

 

Nice to see the site back up and running again.

 

I bumped into Junkman and Conrad a few weeks back in the Stockport market, good to meet you two chaps!

 

Fleet news is a new Alpine GTA in stock which is a nice project for the summer. Caved in to Mrs Hertz and we now have a VW T4 Multivan sans pineapple. Megane will be sold soon so have the delights of gumtree or ebay unless I get lucky.

 

Right going to hit the ebay tat thread as I have serious withdrawal symptoms.

Sounds like my Mum's neighbour's JRG Maestro is off to the big car barn in the sky, and was collected earlier by some gents. 2 weeks worth of ticket left, an 89yo permo-sozzled owner and it having done less than 1k miles in 7 years, whilst also being stored outside hasn't done it much good. Previous welding in 2014 too, so not a great example sadly.

 

I'll be amazed if it comes back in any case!

Still twitching my balloon knot about the potential lack of family transport for the upcoming holiday.

So much so that I have been bidding on any old suitable looking shit on ebay, ready to blast it across to the far coast.

Pulled into asda to get some fuel this morning, turned the engine off, opened the door and BEEP BEEP BEEP pause BEEP BEEP BEEP etc. No warning lights, no dash message... Worried, I fueled up, got back in and prayed it started as I was at the front of the pumps... fired up fine. Drove off.

 

A few miles down the road I remembered I had put the side lights on when I got on the M40 as the weather is shit... Turned them off when I got to work, and no beeping noise...

I've had a morning of mixed fortunes, the V5 has arrived at long last for the 620, annoying the last owner has been re-added to the log book again so it shows him buying the car on the 7/4/17 and me buying it on the 8/4/17 which is wrong but meh, i have it now and the 84 year old buyer of my P6 looks to be cancelling the deal now as no insurance company will touch him because of his age and his astigmatism which is massively annoying for both of us.

Why would you turn your sidelights on and not headlamps? Sidelights are practically invisible.

He was waiting for RH to get back but i think he's expecting the worse, he was really disappointed. I did recommend Saga, He's been with Lancaster for 40 years with his MGB and never claimed other than for a windscreen but they won't insurance him on a new policy for the Rover strangely.

So it illuminates the rear end mainly. I don't know really, it wasn't dark enough for headlights but not dry and light enough for none...

Cars suddenly appearing out of the gloom are a nightmare for truckers, so I tend to put headlights on as soon as conditions get mucky on a motorway.

 

In other news, exhaust shenanigans. Snapped off after first silencer. Managed to get the nuts off, only to discover that the bolts have been welded to the exhaust. Drat. Now, do I have anything suitable in my stash? Also, gasket fell apart, so I'll just have to mash it together with sealant and hope for the best...

Got it on. Don't reckon paste will last long, but the correct gasket is on order. It doesn't fit terribly well though. Cheap exhaust is not superb shocker!

Not been on for a while. The regular outages were irritating, my wife is still sicking everywhere and work has been MENTAL.

I've been roughly seven weeks without a Volvo on front line duties, so today I did what any right thinking man would do and landed a 2001 automatic S60 T5 SE. It doesn't come with the cherry plate so will be going back onto it's Y-reg shortly. It came with oodles of paperwork, including a 2001-dated printout of it sitting on the forecourt of the same dealer who supplied both my 850S and my 740 Turbo, in 2000 and 1987 respectively... £21,495 sixteen years ago.

This week's Radio Times tells of a new programme about '80s double glazing salesmen, called White Gold.

 

Sounds dreadful, but it does appear to have a Chrysler 2-Litre in it:

My this thread is delivering tonight. Love a bit of Alpine action.

 

Yo CMS - shouldn't that Volvo have a curvy passenger wiper blade or is it just me? Has headlamp wipers though, so clearly ace. Still one of the most attractive saloons of all time, and I like it more in red than I expected.
