Triumph Courier vans really are super rare but that one looks like a heap of work and I reckon is much less desirable as its had an estate conversion.

Also - I'm stumped as to why my home PC continues to use this f**king awful new search format for eBay stuff, whereas my work laptop saw sense last week and reverted to the old style. Can the new style be turned off?PS That R6 was in Practical Classics a wee while ago, no doubt the Renault crowd know Kevin Gould - I don't know him but remember he was featured in a classic car mag a few years back having restored an R10 he bought from an army base for a quid!

Hey wow, I have exactly that problem! The new search is WANK. If anyone finds a way of forcing it to use the old one, let me know.

I actually emailed eBay to complain about the new system. they replied saying that it is currently "account specific", meaning that only a certain percentage of accounts are set to use it, and that if you sign out it should revert to the old style. I found that I had to not only sign out but also delete my cookies, but it did then go back to the sensible search mode.

What's the 'new system' then, is it the one where they automatically assume you want to search title and listing?

A-ha, I wondered why mine had gone back to the much better old type of search....I thought ebay had seen how w4nk the new one was and done it themselves but it seems not.Have you heard that they are going to be stopping sellers leaving feedback?? And also that they are going to give buyers 7 days to change their minds!!

My parents had a red two-door Carina for a while, I think it was the only RWD car they ever had... and the only one my dad ever spun (in the snow). I loved it, but it's long dead now.

I can't see this making any more than £5 over the start bid, owing to the completely half-arsed & retarded listing.

Ha ha. Maybe he's been reading R-R and got confused about the old Sunbeam Singer he's got there.Annoying thing is I'd be tempted by cars like that (though perhaps in a worse state) as a source of spares if I had space to dump/strip them.

Retarded though that is. Immeasurably and without question. I do however give you something to trump that listing.Oxygen thief of the Week award goes to:http://cgi.ebay.co.u... ... dZViewItemThe mind boggles. The name of the seller is *vintagecaravans*. I can only assume that he lives in one.

Got his mobile now, I'll ring him tomorrow probably and see about arranging to see it sometime this weekend.Could be interesting this Carina, it is typically the sort of thing the Irish Toyota crew like, but it is arguably the ugliest one you could get and I doubt any will be bothered enough to ship it over. Especially since he's not tried to hide the grot situation.Doesn't seem to be any pattern panels available for it (from a cursory glance), so you'd have to knock up the sill ends yourself. My concern is that pushed-in front wing, might be a sod to straighten that out and I don't think new ones are easily picked up.But on the upside it does look very straight, so we'll see how the viewing goes I guess.
