I hope they rented a big road sweeper to follow this pile of shit down the road. I am not sure why a Mk1 Interceptor built in Italy is so special- it does what any italian car does after a few years on these shores...

That Jensen is exactly why I don't read ebay listings. I m on people joke about them but fuck me and as it written by a child?

"this car is super rare" said about a million times. No this car is a pile of rust and unless you nick someone else's it's all it'll ever be.

That Jenson has been known around the area for some time, it seems.  There's one or two mentions of people looking to buy it 10+ years ago and it being far too far gone and overpriced even then, it's amazing it held together long enough to be dragged out.  The seats had apparently fallen through the floor 11 years ago and it's been there since 93-95ish.

Longer than 30 years, when I was a kid 13-14 my dad sold shoes on Rugby Market , this was mid 70s , we used to drive past that Interceptor every Saturday and it never moved, ever , I think it got parked up when the fuel crisis hit and never moved from that day to this.

A few years ago The A14 was stuffed so I came off , drove past the house and fuck me , under a sheet but there's no mistaking that back window , still there

Now I know what happens to an interceptor stood on mud for 40+ years, it looks like it's been in the sea

That's bought back some memories, I was a car nut from a young age, every Saturday I'd look at it for as long as it was in view.

I'm sure I'm adopted, my dad made 2 Volvo estates and a Subaru last from 1978 to 2011 , I've had more cars than that in 6 months, I've got 3 and a van now

Environmental costs getting it out of the garden

 

Though I'm a bit confused by parts receipts dated 1991unless there are parts with it, as there's no way it's got that bad in that timeframe if it was on the road in 1991

If think that's answered above, but you won't need MOT if you have kept it on continunous SORN

 

Which that doesn't have, as it left the road years before SORN came into affect (1998)

A decent proportion of the 'good' tyres for sale on eBay qualify for this title. But I like this one because the listing includes a large amount of totally relevant information:

 

s-l1600.jpg

 

I did a complete tyre change on my wife's 1994 Mayfair 1275 Automatic when she was going for a new job which involved a round trip of 40 miles a day.

 

The job wasn't what she wanted so I put the now cleaned up old tyres in thick black bin bags and stored them in the loft.

 

You stored the old tyres because she didn't like her job? Eh?

 

Wear to the outer edge of the tyre. Could be fitted to rear with good tread to outside. The price reflects the defects.

 

The price isn't zero though.

 

She drove over fresh road markings prior to tyre change so small amount of white paint on tread.

 

I assume your local tip does not accept tyres.
