Well as you may of seen on the ebay or news 24 thread I went to look at a Cavalier today. Well it was a bit of a road trip off up to Tamworth first to collect a set of alloys for my Saxo, then back down to Cardiff to look at the beige beauty. No chance of a live thread as my phone is one of those old ones that actually is a phone rather than a mutimedia device and I forgot to take my camera. I did see a nice Nissan Cedric in brown on the M42 other than that nothing too exciting to report. Anyway when we finally made it to Cardiff due to all the holiday idiots we found the address no problem. A quick look round and it did look as good as the description with just a few little signs of surface rust. I has had a respray and possibly sills but if it has they have been done very well. I was struggling to find anything to knock him down on until he told me it wouldn't start. Great I thought driven all the way to Wales and the bloody thing won't start. I was just about to walk away when I thought I will just check the work he had done on it. He had been fitting a new coil, leads, rotor arm etc try to cure it. I pulled the king lead out to check for a spark and it was the wrong type and there was no chance it would of made contact. I borrowed a pair of pliers off him and crimped the end back on so it would cfit properly and it was away. The brake servo isn't working as it should as the brakes need a good shove to get the thing to stop, but other than that it's fine and drove back ok. So here we go have some pics.
