I ARE JELLOSS. A 106 as clean as that little red one looks is but a pipe dream for a pikey like me.

 

 

Without wanting to sound ungrateful about the car that WW spent considerable time, money and effort fixing up, and then sold into the Autoshite fold at a financial loss...it has a load of 1cm dings in the bonnet and two patches of rust in the boot, so I wouldn't say that yours is appreciably worse.

Excellent intro post, much funny, would read again A+++++++

 

I had (well, my ex had) a Saxo Forte with what I assume is the same engine. I can confirm that it feels like a much faster car, must be because it weighs the same as my smallest thong and you're only ever one-up in it as people would rather get the bus than a lift in a small French hatchback.

 

Also, they put up with serious abuse including full throttle gearchanges and cornering on the sidewalls. Never cared about a car less since I had a Uno 55 and still the fucker lived on.

Mine has the bonnet dings but not the boot rust. Yours has the boot spoiler (+6HP) and correct trimz though so we'll call it a draw.

That's not abuse. It's driving with commitment.

Not much to report today as I are mostly been gardening and the Spaztec doesn't have the optional lawn mower pack fitted.

Nevertheless it handled the 2.1 mile round trip to the supermarket this morning with APLOMB.

Here it is in its natural habitat next to a MASSIVE TRUCK.

Also, I've just noticed that it says "Rank Austin Metro" under my username. This is fortuitous as I have often said that if I were a car I would indeed be a fetid stinking husk of a Metro.

Smoll update for a smoll car.

The spaztecs NSF tyre is proper fucked, like the rabbit. After being quoted £40 a tyre by Kwik Fit and £50(!) by my local spanner twiddling emporium - 145/70/13 being a "funny size" apparently. I chanced my arm and went for a BIN on a TIGAR part worn off the bay for a score posted. I did wonder if it would A. turn up in the first place and 2. still be here when I got back from work as I'd told them to leave it on the drive. But as it turned out my fears were unfounded and it arrived today.

Here is doggiefourspeed INSPECTING THE GOODS.

55224b6622e40a82c6c47c4318fc0140.jpg

I'm pleased enough as it was fully as described and has MANY TREDZ left on it. When you compare it to the one on there now I should be able to pull some serious G once I've wanged it on down the yard tomorrow.

F1 SPEC SLICK M8.

I'll be honest usually it would bother me but seeing as the other three hoops are Goodyears with yards of tread on them I figured that 75% good is still good*

*I reserve the right to change my mind on this when the NSF washes out on me mid-drift or something causing me to skid off the road into a wall.

Your Spaztec looks nigh-on identical to the '95 OneHundredandSix Graduate my mate had when we were at uni. His was a 1.5 na derv, but it was a lively little thing considering. Funny seeing that interior all these years later, where the black bits have faded to purple.
Do your feet fit onto the pedals, and have you saved a couple of undocumented Penzas for us to look at? There must be a couple left somewhere...

Them yellow cubes from out of a proper old-school urinal are easy to sneak in and a better buzz than any modern chemical shit. Never done me any harm.

Don't believe the lies. The 106 pedal box is not too small. Other people's feet are too big. Once you accept that and modify your attitude (and toes) then there are no issues in that department.

Hello Doug, dangerous or otherwise.

This reminds me of the time my Mrs said "You need more excitement in your life."

It took the fire brigade four hours and two kilograms of hot lard to separate me from the Ann Summers 'Beginners Bondage Box' and the neighbours doberman.

It's Friday night. So what better way to PARTY DOWN than an update from Spaztec developmentzzz!

So last time out the new TIGAR tyre had rocked up. I dropped in one evening at my mate Scott's workshop as he's a dab hand at banging on new hoops. Here's an ACTION SHOT of a typical daytime scene in the workshop.

fc7d9a1adf57a030f356e792ba7d454d.jpg

Scott's place is the sort of garage that most of the general public probably imagine doesn't exist anymore. In essence it's a more of a cave than an actual building. But he's a very clever boy and a serial shite owner. Highlights include this Mk5 Escort which started as a 1300 and now runs an ST170 lump, MTX75 and bike carbs.

c596cc73225990eccfe1cdaf19f8712c.jpg

This K16 powered Mini Clubman 'project'

82638549f222ea227e2de505aa8ac7a3.jpg

And a Ford P100. With a Rover V8. Obviously. f0b0ed3425318d6edad336839d82f3d4.jpg

2f4e021b6c70d305405173c866fa85a8.jpg

He also happens like myself to have a bit of a fetish for old French shite and currently owns a couple of 205s. One of them being a late DTurbo with some Garrett blower the size of a healthy calf as well as many other MODZ. I don't know how much POWAH it makes but it easily had the measure of a Golf 4 PD150 out on the road when I was riding shotgun.

Anyway, I bashed the new tyre on with the machine and identified in the process that the 106 could do with some new discs soonish. Whilst I was putting it back together Scotty was rummaging around in the pile of old shite in the corner which includes, but is not limited to, a bare MkI Escort shell. "Want this?" He asked, only to produce before my eyes a minty looking 205 GTi-spec leather steering wheel!

I had planned to replace the steering wheel anyway as the original was a bit grot. So obviously I was having that. I neglected to mention to him what these currently go for on eBay. I'm a good mate.

Max BDSM points!

7469e8965b0f68a33a44a059a19b8708.jpg

The next day I drove to work feeling like a KING with my new steering wheel giving me not only 13 more BHP but also the sort of tactile pleasure hitherto unexperienced by man. Or men who haven't owned a 205 GTi, which I haven't. But my joy was only short-lived when I arrived at the den of iniquity only to discover I had been COMPREHENSIVELY OUTSHITED!

A lad I work with had been out on a gumtree spree the previous night and rocked up in this gem*

a16ad0b52fffbde5e0fa9a10945993e9.jpg

Full compliment of emissions and traction control lights on, rubbish manual gearbox and diesel injector seemingly fixed in place with Araldite and all for £200. BASTARD.

I was so annoyed that I poked a hole through the rotten front wing with my thumb.

To cheer myself up I decided to fill up the 106 with its favourite fuel.

1e507e35802f488deffc5094306b6aaf.jpg

Now obviously I refuse to be outdone on the shite front so tentative plans have been set in motion that may or may not come to fruition over the weekend... OOH QUELLE MYSTERE.
