It never ceases to amaze me how once expensive and very nice cars quickly go to shit and ruin in the wrong hands.

 

 

 

Thankfully it was a Jensen Healey. They were never nice!

Before you ask, no it's not mine! My next door neighbour just bought this, it was fork lifted onto his trailer and just about snapped in half during the process....attachicon.gifIMG_3773.JPG

I suspect there's method to your neighbour's madness... Sell the engine for £££, ebay whatever other parts are salvageable, then weigh in the little that is left of the body.

 

If, however, he's planning to restore it, he's insane/heroic and needs to register on here !

Anyone fancy the 205? 5 door, 4 speed, carbed 1.1 xu engine (one of the very first) A joy to drive, no flat spots, recent clutch (seems to bite low but no slip etc) michelins all round, very straight body with no rot in any of the occasional 205 spots like boot and rear inner sills etc. Paint good but one front wing has a bit of crazing in the lacquer and the boot is a slightly different shade (not obvious but can be noticed in the rear 3/4 shot) interior good, fabric excellent aside from slightdrivers bolster wear; I've got a replacement oem seat cover for it anyway.

Bad bits- driver's window (manual) not working, and the check strap is a bit slack, and there's very slight judder/rumble on breaking OSF but the brakes pull up Strongly and squarely- maybe the disc or pads?

Very comprehensive history with service books etc and a thick wad of receipts, for instance in 93 it was bought from a dealers with the owner part exing a mk2 escort (worth sod all at the time by the looks of things!)

Well it's all been very quiet on the vehicle front. Everything has been sold- and I currently have one solitary car, with a bare essentials of cubic capacity and dimensions. I quite like it but it's all been very uneventful. In fact the only thing that has happened to it is this....

The drive is empty. So too, the overflow layby, as is the garage. For the first time since 2002 and with 200+ cars in the interim, there is no car. I nearly bid on a 1999 avensis estate last night (ended up going for £215 with MOT but cracked screen)but talked myself out of it.

Tomorrow that is set to change as the vendor is dropping off my newly purchased BMW e46 330d. I lasted 48hrs. How long have you gone cold turkey?

There's an element of style over substance though.. Gone are the days a wing mirror or indicator stalk or door handle was on a whole range of models. .


Yet they still manage to make a whole host of cars look the bloody same

How long have you gone cold turkey?

 

Well... I've managed to make it a couple of months with just the wife's car, and another car SORNed (with no plans to get back on the road). Does that count? For me it's quite an achievement.

 

Have been spending every spare minute for the past 60 days looking at for sale ads though...

Well the vendor dropped off my new (and only) set of wheels today. It's that old forum favourite* a BMW E46. It's my second E46 (people with very good memories may remember my dopehead cast off coupe with 1.8 litre 4 cylinder power. It was a bit sorry for itself but an easy sell to the gumtree massiv.) The rationale behind this touring is- not too big, not too boring, auto so missus friendly and scores points as hails from her homeland...
IMG_4355.JPG
IMG_4361.JPG

Of course it's rusty- bubbling on the arches, but in contrast to the coupe it has been looked after otherwise and has a decently potent engine. It's the 3l 6 pot dizzler with an engine remap ( fully declared to my insurers fwiw)

Drives lovely, no knackered bushes, pokey, already on its second auto box (chip Just kicked in yo) How long will I keep it? Do I like it's chav image? Do I like it? YES YES YES; today at least it's sunny and I'm happy. WCPGW?!
