At the time when both were ubiquitous, these always seemed like the Lada Riva / 1200's quirkier brother! Saloon's likewise.

Pretty good collection still, love the Solara and the Metro, great how they made tiny cars into vans for really small businesses...

Ah, it's an ex BT-van? I always wonder how much you could fit in these small thingies, I'd say 3 garden gnomes and it's full.

I managed to transport an MZ TS250 once in the back of my Metro, okay, most of it was hanging out the back, a great car!

I popped out today to have a look at this, just about to end on ebay:

just in case anyone's watching it it looks okay, the guy wasn't in otherwise I might've bought it, window issues though, certainly not mint

of course I also saw these within yards of it!

Sad Civic from another thread

I take it this was too far gone for anybody? It's very sad when there's no turning back for a car. Like a dog that needs a bit of love & care but no one wants it so they have to put it down. :cry:

Those Giulia saloons are ace, and unbelieveably aerodynamic I understand, despite their 'barn door' appearance.

I managed to transport an MZ TS250 once in the back of my Metro, okay, most of it was hanging out the back, a great car!

I once transported an LR Salisbury axle in a borrowed Reliant Robin van. We had to take the front seat out to get it in, and my helper had to sit behind me on the floor in the back. It was listing somewhat, and at no point did I exceed 25mph. Very unpleasant.

Only spotted this today

Actually that's not true, I was driving between Luton and Houghton Regis today and spotted air cooled VW's in a few drives and one glorious Viva HA, was driving though and it was pretty busy, sorry!
