I wonder who it is thats paying the huge £ for cortinas these days.I love the things more than most but even I can see that they're just not THAT good to be worth £3k odd.especially not when I was paying 500 notes in the not too distant past!! madness.

It was a similar story with cla**ics in the mid to late 80s. Anything from the 1960s was selling for thousands- apart from Rootes kit for some reason.I can remember my school headmaster struggling to sell a reasonable "bank robber" Jag for £400 in the early 1980s. If he'd left it to rot in a field until 1987 it would have made five figures.

These are starting to make quite a bit of money now - a couple of years ago you could buy a half decent MoT'd runner for a monkey.

http://cgi.ebay.at/R... ... 56336dca9c What do you think about this Rover 45 Saloon? Is it a good car? A mate want´s a newer Rover, so this one would be interesting. P.S.: Don´t worry about the price, cars are insanely cheap in the UK. :wink:

I'd avoid late Rovers, they were afflicted with 'Project Drive', a cost-cutting/de-speccing exercise.Rover 45s are good cars though, and I think they were affected less by Project Drive. They are a bit dated and cramped inside but rugged, economical and nice to drive.P.S. HOW MUCH!?

Cars don't survive well on the coast, and this is likely to have been driven into the sea to launch boats. I doubt if there will be a single good component. Even the galvanised chassis will be buggered

All is not lost though. Expect this to be fully restored using parts from a 2009 Defender.

You'd at least run a hose on it at the end of a day surely?

Doesn't look like they understand the concept of maintenance. There's lots of internal steel supports in the safari body. That would need a hell of a rebuild. I'd be worried about renting a boat from them...

Wot, even Amazons? I have a receipt from when my Amazon was sold in 1989 to some tool for £600. Flash forward to 2006 and another nob end gave £600 for it. I realise that there's inflation to figure into it (as 1989's £600 probably wasn't £600 in 2006) but that's not a hell of a lot of depreciation \ appreciation going on there.

I spy those infamous palm trees!IIRC Welfare has the inside track on that garage, who have several eBay ID's and are reknowned for being great on glossy pics and glossing over the major mechanical & saftey defects on the cars they sell. I was looking at something from their selection earlier, clocked the palm trees, instant NO THANKS.

Maybe the madness didn't extend to foreign cars, or maybe the arse had fallen out of it by 1989. I can remember trawling through the private classifieds in PC and not seeing much below about £2500. Of course, the advertised price and the selling price are two very different things, but there was definitely something very Escort-like going on.

That's some interesting stuff, a lot of seems to make sense (making things like radio aerials so they aren't unique to a car), but some of it is rather rubbish cost-cutting. Best example I found was where they deleted the anti-rollbar setup from some Rover 45s and compensated with shorter springs. Also getting rid of the fancy kickplates on some models in favour of cheapo plastic ones.

Crikey, check out Bulletin 8! They binned the entire spare wheel/jack setup in favour of a can of instant tyre repair stuff. Think it's worth making an entire thread out of this to be honest.

If I had a Twingo it would have to be an early one, with the manual windows, two-speed fan, no intermittent wiper setting etc. and the rattly old OHV engine nicked from the Renault 12. Preferably in that pale green colour. IMHO they ruined the Twingo when they started speccing it up - originally it was basically a replacement for the R4 and was charmingly basic for a '90s design.

I saw that, and TBH i it was mint would probably hit it - however detailed photos of the sills and door bottoms have fallen on deaf ears and have brought forth none. If i get the time and it doesnt sell in the meantime i may go and have a look at it.

2.0 GL Carb Automatic with non-metallic paint!!!! Now youre talking. I have emailed the feller, reckons he's gonna auction it without reserve, but will listen to 'good sensible offers' in the meantime. I could quite fancy it but would not pay more than £200 for it, and expect it to need an MOT (have no idea whether its got any ticket).

I have proper got he horn for one of these old things, for me they are as much an item of ubiquitous 80's street jewellery as any XR3i/RS turbo/Cosworth or whatever. I reckon the one I would like the most is a 2.0i ghia on about an F-reg.
