Fantastic selection Torsten! I particularly like the 'Lincoln' (which I reckon is an 83-86 Ford Thunderbird, fwooooar loverly) and the Olds Cutlass - hard to believe they were still making them in '93 after being introduced in '82, but that's the domestic Yanks for you. They were still making a Mk2-based Cav up until last year...Rolls wagon is tremendous, the Range Rover top 'almost' fits...And the Carlton too...mmm...could be a 2.2. Looks a bit farked if it's sitting that low, probably the strut mountings have rusted out (as usual)

That Domino will be getting a little note in about 15 minutes, I've been thinking of it all day, the mould around the wheels speaks volumes! The Rolls is badged "Safari" so possibly a legit conversion, looks amatuerish but nicely done, bugger all room in the back though, there were two polo mallets in there, hmmm!Carlton looks down on the tyres and really tired around the edges but is it worth it?

Depends how cheap really, if it's a 2.2 manual that would be quite a useful cruiser :lol: If you get the chance to look at it, open the bonnet and check round the strut tops - if they're forked, run away! Mind you, I think the 6-cyls suffer worst in that area, the torque pulls 'em apart. My two Rekords with their much-weedier 2.0-litre donks were fine in that regard. My 2.5 Senator was just beginning to go...

To be honest I would expect the car to be free but it doesn't float my boat to be honest, if you want me to pursue it let me know

Can you get Gazoline over here? I always pick it up when I'm in France, but I haven't seen it for sale here. Although I think most of the adverts get put on their website. I don't go on there too often as I find it depressing - there's so much wonderful tat for sale but it's a) always in the bloody South so way too far to go with a Daihatsu and trailer and B) ridiculously expensive as old motors seem to make about three times as much over there. :roll: I came so close to bidding on that green R6 on eBay.fr though...

Nah i've never seen it for sale here. A subscription is cheap though, only about 35 quid even here in the UK!

Is that recovery truck a 7.5-tonner? If so I reckon he's pushing his luck weight-wise with a tilt'n'slide bed and a '58 Cadillac :oops: on the back... Love the SD1 - haven't seen one below a 2600 for years.Edit: Is that Daihatsu the 2-cylinder version?

You're right, the tailfins are too short for an Imperial. Strange though, no matter how much I stare at the front end it still doesn't look like it has the high-mounted headlights of the Caddy... Weird.Edit: And the bumper is blatantly General Motors... Don't know what I'm thinking. :oops: Must be because I had to get up early this morning...The fact remains though that that truck has got to be pushing its weight limit.

The bonus thing with that Domino is it being parked on crazy paving, that always does it for me. Don't see enough of it out here.

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

Torsten, do you use the South Circular much? I've spotted loads on my way to and from the Saab. There's a tasty looking yellow Amazon at Tulse Hill.

591cc is odd, should be 617cc, but loads of small-engined Daihatsus seem to have the wrong cc on DVLA.Really hope you get it!

I'm going to Belgium next month. To Zeebrugge on the Ferry then over to Bruge for 4 nights. Is it much good for shite like Holland / Amsterdam or is it too affluent and new cars are king? I'll snap what I can anyway, especially with the double purpose of reporting back to here afterwards!
