The tragic thing is that if anyone does fix up that limo, they probably will make a fortune using it ... hiring wacky groups of lads shouting "Rodney you plonker" out the window.

In 1998 one of those sold for £35000! It isn't the Top GEar effect - they were always expensive! The going rate is still £30-50k!

When I were a lad, I thought that vans with sliding drivers doors were the coolest thing in the world.

I still do 8)

Seeing a bloke driving along in a sliding door van, door open, no seatbelt, fag on and probably wearing a flat cap, was about as impressive as it got.

I have another 1988 Mitsubishi Cordia Turbo in silver that has been in storage for 10 years. Unfortunatly this will also be for sale shortly on e-bay.


This guy has had these things on eBay at least 5 times over the last couple of years. I think he wanted about £2000 which is why he's still got em.

Jeez, that Only Fools and Horses limo is without doubt the biggest pice of sh*t I have ever seen. Why the continuing fascination with this programme? Sure it was funny (in 1987) but come on, let it go. I preferred "Allo Allo" but that doesnt mean I want to buy a Traction Avant and paint pictures of Gordon Kaye or Vikki Michelle on it.Local bloke has got a Chrysler PT with load of Star Wars artwork on it. He calls it the "Jedi Cruiser" and I just have to try and get down a pic of it. Possibly the only way to make something awful even worse!

I have seen it at my kids school so possibly one of the parents or grandparents. Occasionally see it pottering about South Essex but havent caught sight of the owner. Perhaps they have a bag on their head to avoid being recognised?I'm not a vain person but if I had been hitchhiking in the cold and rain for 12 hours and that pulled up, I'd seriously have to ask myself if I wouldnt be better off waiting for someone else!Despite all that, the airbrushing isnt half bad but I still cant help but ask why. Can you imagine the salesmans face if you tried to PX that thing? "I've got a bad feeling about this" never rang truer.

I had a Passat of that shape about 15 years ago, but it was a hatchback instead of the estate. It went alright, boring to drive but economical and never put a foot wrong.

That thing in the ebay list is grotesque :cry:

Have we had this yet? Proper OMG RWD DRIFT stuff. Shame it's a bit ugly and difficult to determine how many hours / weeks / years to get it roadworthy

V8's sound immense. Hair on the back of your neck kind of thing. The 2.6's sound toss. That is all.
