So what could I do? It is my destiny to own at least 20% of the GAZ24's in the UK!

So did I! Thing is I had no idea I'd won some wheels off the same bloke, got there, saw the Volga and negotiaions ensued. The clincher was a bottle of vodka and some strange canned fish thing that my missus loves and that sated her anger and enabled me to own another Volga. I think that I can now safely say that I OWN MORE VOLGAS THAN ANYONE ELSE IN THE UK AND I WILL RULE THE WORLD!!!! HAAA HAAAAA HAAAAAA!

Well I did drive my 1993 Volga, and it drove beautifully, it was being towed behind a Transit through Peckham, a motoring highlight! So Mr B, I'll take everything you got! Got any pre fire photos?

I see the Datsun has theoretically sold, which should help things? Seem like it will go through OK?Edit: eBay helpfully suggested these as a similar item "BNIP~COSY BEIGE SLIPPERS~FLEECE LINED~VERY SOFT~UK 5/6"

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.

Yes, looks like the Datsun's heading toward Luton on Sunday, seems like a decent fella into his classics so I'll steer him this way. There's another beige Datsun on there at the mo of course but I think that's it for me and later Datsuns and certainly Nissans good cars though they are!Beige slippers? mmmmmmmm, almost as exciting!
