It’s too beige for anyone outside of Autoshite…Was it only pov-spec Opels that got the round headlights, or did some Astras too?

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

Think it was just the saloons, I remember my mates mums Astray was a 1300S with them.

Yup, I remember seeing it on the "For Sale/Wanted" message board quite recently. Was tempted then but was bidding on another Mk1 at the time, which I eventually got outbid on. Quite like the idea of a saloon one though - it'll be like the Sud, a saloon that looks like a hatchback. Then I'll need a Citroën GS and an Allegro to complete the set. And then for hatchbacks that look like saloons, that nice Simca 1100 and a Daihatsu applause.I need to get out more.

Brand new Fiat 126 engine. Sold for £1050!

Crikey!! :shock:

Have got the engine out of mine at the mo, in bits overhauling it, complete gasket and seal change etc.

Couldn't justify that amount of money on a standard engine even though it's barn fresh. If you could get more ponies - then possibly....

Good luck on the Astra, Wuvsbury. It's a nice little car that one. Very peppy to drive, though 4 on the floor is a bit wearysome on the motorways.

Missed it. :( I wasn't going to go over 200 on it, and it went up to that a couple of minutes from the end. I would have gone higher but I already have five cars to pay for/collect at the moment and I don't want to go overboard.Having said that, I am now high bidder on that blue one. :roll:

2.5-16 is the Cosworth one though isn't it?Fast, rare, desirable manual box, low miles, probably not an exorbitant price, these will only go up from here on.

Aye. 202bhp and a manual 'box in a small RWD saloon, so GR8 4 DRIFTIN (6-foot-diameter steering wheel aside). And a wonderful Q-car. I think they have a dogleg gearbox on those too, same as the higher-powered manual Beemers of the early '80s. I reckon that's probably worth £6K to the right person.

That'll be the Slough Fiat dealer it's been PX'd at - which could be a good sign. Let me know if you need assistance if you win it!

Nice one Rich_Welf. Pretty good price for one of those with that much T&T. Looks in fairly good nick too, bonnet scratch aside. And I'm sure Mrs_Welf will be much happier having that sat on the driveway than the multi-coloured one.
