"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.

I can confirm these 1.7 wedges are pretty freakin shit slow. Although, they are quite economical on a run due to fairly high gearing despite being a 4-speed (I got 42mpg out of my x-reg one years ago) and the ride quality is amazing! genuinely as good as anything else on the road, citroens, jags etc of all ages included.I would absolutely love another. The thing which always puts me off is looking after the Hydragas suspension.... I was given an Austin 1100 with suspension problems as my first ever car, and suffered the frustration of never being able to pump the bastard up (+ therefore drive it). However I now think its possible to make a good pump out of a grease gun and a special valve off eBay, so that doesnt worry me so much, to the extent that the yella Maxi off eBay is looking very tempting, if nothing else as an excuse to make a pump and try it!.

OMG a Brubaker Box! I'm sure these had gert big lumps of wood for bumpers originally so I'm guessing someone's tried to 'modernise' it with some nasty placca ones. I'd love to deck that out with some shag pile, bubble port holes and chrome airhorns on the roof. Maybe even some 'captains chairs' and a chain steering wheel too.

"IF NO ONE BIDS THATS WHERE ITS GOING .... TO THE WEIGHBRIDGE"

What's with all the 'threats' to weigh stuff in....? In particular the XJ40 Estate, jesus I'd be tempted to put a bid in just to get the thing crushed and off the roads. And the Trabant guy, does he realise how much of the car is metal and how much he's likely to net from it?It's hardly likely to make someone who didn't want the car in the first place go 'oh wait, he can't weigh that in! I must buy it!!' however.I've got a sofa to sell on ebay later on. Maybe if I put "if this doesn't get any bids i'm going to slash the leather, pull a bit of the foam out, and then take it to the tip!!!111one" in the auction it'll guilttrip someone into buying it? :roll:

I don't have an eBay account anymore or I'd have asked the bonehead that very question :)

I think I heard that electric thing was found abandoned in a ditch in Thames Ditton in the 80s - there's a lovely 1970s publicity photo of it (complete with obligatory dolly bird) looking all shiny and new, so it's nice to see someone's restored it.....hope it goes to a good home.
