i dont understand how advertising a Rover 100 in an undriveable state is meant to tell people that cars traded in under the scheme have to have an MOT?Bad advert for the dealer if you ask me, we have 2 at our college and they get moved by 50 odd different 18 year olds in a week, and are in better condition.So do you have a collapsed car with no front numberplate and smashed lights?Trade it in now.........

Essex police ran a few Mk2 ST24's or ST200's on a 51 plate for a while as well, But X must be one of the very first Mk 3's.

The wing mirrors on that 140 would be worth a few quid.........As would the engine, especially if it had an OD.And if it had a centre console with the clock in.....I know someone who'd have that quick sharp. They fit in Amazons as well.

I dont mind that. Not what i would do, but nothing that cant be sorted out. That transit is a bit special though. Is that in the same place as all the other stuff? Bit of a collection of tat they have there. Whats the deal with the Green Goddess?

Green goddess is in storage / parked exibit at a steam railway station. The Transit is not in a usual place I go to-its in a farmers driveway which has public access for country walks. The idea of it being special is maybe by the blue paint. In the early to late 90's Securicor / Omega ran these in that shade of blue-with Turbo's and "HI-CUBE" Badging if I remember right.

Blimey, great find with the Stanza! How many are left? Im presuming the hatchbacks far outnumber the saloons, we must have most of the survivors photographed by members on here now surely?

The Daewoo Tico was very popular in Slovakia and in Poland, there are many of them driving around. I think they are almost as popular as the Fiat 126 from Poland. I absolutely love the Mitsubishi Diamante, sadly this beautiful piece of engineering never made it to Europe officially. Love the Sigma too.

The Diamante is rather special. Bankruptcy-inducing parts costs I’d have thought. Stanza is an auto. In theory I think there was a 1.8SGL manual, but I’m not sure if many were sold here. Might make the handling even more exciting.

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

Garage with the Rover was closed - bits of it scattered around the yard. Saab and vdu dumped outside an empty industrial unit.

I bet the VDU still works too. Not too sure about the Saab. Seems such a shame though. Nice cars.

That SD1 VdP... what's the score with it? Looks like grey leather interior.... I need some bits, and a VdP EFi badge. That's got both.
