The only difference between Scrappage and that RIley is that at least the government didn't bung £1000 into the creation of that!

It'll cost the taxpayer more than £1000 when it folds in half on the drive out of Bournemouth and the police have to close the road.

Yes, Heinz did commission some convertibles. I imagine they're a bit heavy on reinforcements. There are some other chop-tops too, using DIY Mini convertible methods ie a substantial roll bar!

The Heinz one was a Hornet not an Elf. I saw a mint one with all the 'extras' with it at the London to Brighton mini run earlier this year. It looked like it was a bodge job from day one.

[ I wonder about the 2 weeks mot and wheather the work has been checked ok for strength etc though. That would need an engineers report/vosa check wouldnt it? I think that would depend on wether the V5 has been changed to state that it's now a convertible [which, of course, it won't have been.].

Just for once, I would love to see a Cosworth listed as a "Base Model Replica" to redress the balance. Do these numpties realise that all the base models are disappearing, soon there will be no more to convert!The grey grille was gone by mid A plate, all were colour coded in the first facelift, which also saw the foglight swith receive an orange panel to identify it, as the previous black one was hard to see...............I have a RARE early switch if anyone wanst to do a "base model replica" BTW.

On the Sierra...[anorak] Base models up until the '85MY facelift always had the danglies...they lost the grey grille for the '84MY. The L lost the danglies, gained more plastichrome and holed wheeltrims (instead of the weird double-slots) for '84.So, as a base model (with those GR8 steel wheels) it's had a replacement driver's mirror. [/anorak] It shouldn't be an A-reg if it was first registered on 6 November 1984 though...

DVLA says

The vehicle details for A485 RFJ are:

Date of Liability 01 08 1997
Date of First Registration 11 06 1984
Year of Manufacture 1984
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 2304CC
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type Heavy Oil
Export Marker Not Applicable
Vehicle Status Unlicensed
Vehicle Colour BLUE
Vehicle Type Approval null
This vehicle can be licensed at a DVLA Local Office without the V5C Registration Certificate
The information contained on this page is correct at the time of enquiry.
Vehicle Excise Duty Rate for vehicle
6 Months Rate £104.50
12 Months Rate £190.00

I think ebay have taken the date to be written in the US style, not the UK style.

Speaking of rice pudding, check the rear arches :)

Oh dear, I just have up close. It's a shame really because my Crapometer nearly broke the scale. Rear arches already been splodged (and the driver's side one smells of EPIC FAILZ), some pretty comical welding that looks like seagull pooh mixed with papier mache and a no budging on price means it's a no-no for me.
Apprantly I could buy it and 'after the MOT has run out it wouldn't owe me anything'.
£290 for eight weeks use doesn't sound that clever to me, I might as well go to Car Craft and get DRY BUMMED by some oily shark for a ten grand Clio worth £700 :cry:
