^FOR FUCKS SAKE!Presumably yean another SHIT CHAZZA RALLY CHARIOT. It wasfunny once, about 8 years ago. Look at all those UTTER MONGS standing there, presumably having their pic taken for some shit local paper"ESTATE AGENTS CAR-AZY ADVENTURE""A group of mindless dullards from a random provincial backwater are taking on the challenge of driving, in a car, from one place to another place not all that far away. They are hoping to raise £8.03 for charidee. What makes this amazingly unspectacular event even more pointless is that their car cost -just- £250 AND they have painted it pink! Let's hope these WHACKY RACERS make it all the way to Calais OK."All such individuals need a firm kick in the knackers/clack

It's someone that has provided me with a smashing car that has the most comprehensive history file i've ever seen :)

All your 1200 Estates are belong to me :D[/quote]

Sorry, might have lost some of the quoting business there.

I met Dorothy Crick who owned this car, really nice lady. I saw her with it down at Will's at a post-Bromley Datsun OC get-together some years ago. Got a pic of it back then somewhere.

She is also partly responsible for me having the ex-Datsun/Nissan UK files, in that through her I found out about the chap who held them as he'd done a build date check on her car to prove it was 1972 built and therefore tax exempt. I talked to him, and ended up with the files a while later (which reminds me about something I need to sort).

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

I'm too tired to save the picture, go to photobucket.com, find the picture on my hard drive, upload the picture, come back to the message, type out the code, click on the IMG link, paste it in between the code & post the message. Sorry. But feel free! I'm about to get an early night for once (yes midnight is early for me) :wink:

That looks pretty nice to be honest! I'd fire the alloys out of a cannon into the sun obviously. Bet the autobox makes it reassuringly slow.

I never knew that! Although you're basically hosting directly from some site so if it goes down or removes the picture, your link is ruined.

i had it sold to a collector but he pulled out of the deal because its not uk registered and i have no paper work

needs a little bit of tlc but a shame to squash but with the price of scrap thats wats happin to it

So there's no paperwork with the car.... and even with the price of scrap so high, how much will he get for a car that's barely 600kg, half of which is duroplast :?

Correct Rich, now start reading this thread again from page 1 onwards and see how many pictures are still active. :)

"Don't keep asking me 'Why' Reg, it just happens to be that year"

Would have worked if it wasn't an A-reg! Nearly all of them seem to be Y-reg models in beige, usually with the 1.7 engine which I imagine is fairly grim.Still fancy one though, for trips down to garden centres, local steam fairs or a quick trip to the reservoir to check the level.
