Will this be a collection? I really don't know yet.

 

It all started yday, phone rings late afternoon, unknown number from Austria: Hi, you know, i have friend who has a XXX (make & model still secret) in the garage. Second owner, mint condition, bought it in the early 90's not driven since many a year but there is something to fix with the engine. I was reading about your collection and i think you should have the car. If you like it, i will call my buddy and make sure he sells it to you. He doesnt know yet, but don't worry i will talk him. 

 

Ehem.. ? Yes, OK, thanks.

 

20 minutes later: Phone rings again: Hi, my buddy told me that you will be the next owner of my XXX. You know, its been sitting there for 12 years now and really deserves better. It's mint, low mileage, but the engine needs to be fixed (details given). A very reasonable price was mentioned.

 

First thoughts:

 

- this is some new sort of scam, ignore it.

- nobody sells that car at that price

- we have more than enough cars already

- there are really better things to do on a winter sunday.

- it's winter, icy roads, snow storms, we will die on the road.

- the address given is in a back yard in some uninhabited commercial area, we will be robbed, beaten up and then die!

 

Second thougts:

 

- want

- the place is 20 miles northeast of Salzburg, only 2 1/2 hours from here.

- want

- all good cars have been collected in deep winter (i still remember being myself deep frozen inspecting the first Tagora, Tagora SX was covered by snow when we first saw it etc...)

- want

- Michaels Skoda has 4WD

- want

- spare engine block for that very car sits in the garage.

- want

 

Aparently the pro's by far outnumber the cons: we will be on the road today!

 

Really shitty outside,  seems i will need to shovel my way out of the garage.

"Guess the car" is now open, it's not that difficult.

Them yellow cubes from out of a proper old-school urinal are easy to sneak in and a better buzz than any modern chemical shit. Never done me any harm.

There is indeed such in the garage, but it's not what maybe needed this time...

It's not another bloody Rancho, is it?  ;-)

 

If it fits in with the rest of your collection then it'll be top quality shite, anyway!

Im going to guess that its a 2004 Ford Mondeo tdci. Just to buck the trend of every car you have being obscure and awesome. You probably fancy a change by now.

So here we are.
Indeed a very nice 505 turbo Injection. No rust, good paint, nice Interior, nothing tinkered or bodged. Only issue: white smoke from the exhaust on the last few miles driven years ago. Turbo and manifold removed, water dropping out of cylinder 3. New head needed... unobtainium. Same head as Tagora , sits in my garage ready to mount. Price was right.. purchase made.

Actual collection will be in a few weeks when the roads are dry.
