How does JC have the nerve to lavish attention on a Renault Alpine after he single handedly destroyed that lovely A610?? :shock::lol:
What a peach :wink: Think that is a guy's from the Renault Alpine Forum.

Yes clarkson is a tw$t for smashing up that 610, less than 50 RHD now left :evil:

It's rapidly getting to the stage where I'm taking photos quicker than I can upload them, this should mean I only stick to the real standout stuff but on the other hand I'm going to exhaust the shite stock on a 45 square mile island sooner or later, unless I give up my civil servant job and become a postman or something.

Mk2 XR2 corner, tidy. I owned red J76102 in 1996! Bought it off a lass who had stuffed it into a wall while trying to avoid a goose in the road. Result: car bent, bird dead, lass out of pocket by about 3 grand, Craig in receipt of superb 39k mile drivetrain that promptly got lobbed into an early mk3 1.1 Ghia. Shame I didn't uprate the brakes to suit :oops:

I am pretty sure the colour you require for the Escort is Bermuda Blue. IMy Mate had a Mk2 Festy this colour. :)

Yep Ibuleve that Citroen DS is South-African, as with most of Craig's posts I have had the pleasure of having either worked on or driven most of the crocks of shit in his pics including that DS.

The garage I worked at serviced that DS, lovely car in amazing condition and without doubt the most comfortable seat I have ever sat on-highly recommended.

Owner Is minted from memory and has owned for a few years so tut-tut at not re-registering it etc etc.

Believe this is a MkI Chrysler Voyager / Plymouth Voyager / Dodge Caravan, the likes of which wasn't actually sold over here, some just ended up over here, like the early Cherokees. By the mid 90s Chrysler was selling directly to us with their Neons, Voyagers, Cherokees & Wrangler Jeeps & they've never looked back since, even if we do! :D

I believe that at one stage you could import a secondhand vehicle to Jersey without the need for it to be inspected, there was all sorts of stuff used to get brought in such as type approval testbeds, US/Jap spec motors etc. At least in the UK you needed an MOT first where things like the wrong headlamps would get picked up on. All been tightened up now mind - in fact it's gone the other way and you need an SVA-type test for anything non-type approved up to 25 years old (anything over 10yrs old in the UK doesn't require SVA)

Depends what you call dross.There's a guy over here with one of best collections of Mopar muscle this side of the pond. several nice 'Stangs, some tasty pick-ups, and then my stuff, which fits none of the above criteria!

I paid £1:40 for a "small" one at a car show on Sunday :shock: (Pics will appear on here eventually. Of the cars, not the 99!!!). What do you rekon the profit margin is on those damn things?

I imagine the profit margin is massive on Mr Whippy type ice cream, although the costs involved in licensing, complying with regulations and keeping the van on the road must be pretty high.I once tried to work out the true cost of the post mix fizzy drinks you get in pubs. I can't remember the figure I came up with but they make a healthy profit on them.

I'm really liking the spots of the non XR3i Mk3 Escort Cabrios 8) I also like the original dealer sticker in the back window of the Nova.
