I think that went to 155V6, as part of a big box of oddities and strays... I must have had it for ten years before I noticed the Austria/Australia mix-up!

Aye, it's been a long time coming... sorting these out and moving them on has been on my to-do list for about 8 years. I'd taken fits and starts, car-booting some and selling others through the Toy Shite FB page (amongst many others), but experiences were sometimes mixed. Car boot sales seem to have weirdly died a death round here, with very very few now remaining. Maybe people just stick their surplus stuff on Gumtree now?

 

I can't say that photographing, uploading and packing so many models is something I actively enjoy, but it's been satisfying watching the crates in the shed shrink down... and also really nice to see pics of them in their new homes! Makes it feel a little less final than watching some randomer at a car boot sale wander off with bits of your childhood.

 

Cost-effective it's not, given the time involved, but I think I'm nearly there now - and yeah, liquidating this asset has done what I'd hoped, and put me back in the black financially, with a bit left over for proper savings.

 

And, once it's all done and dusted, I'll be able to go through my other crates of models - and then show you all via the Shite In Miniature thread what I've kept. Spoiler - there's some quite nice stuff in there!

 

Hope your sales go equally well!

You'll probably not remember, but I'm just around the corner from you in Whiteabbey. I suppose being a middle-aged fart with a wife and kids might well bring it down, but despite living in a less salubrious part of NI (just on the edge of what used to be Europe's biggest housing estate) and only driveway parking I get quotes for some quite bananas motors at very reasonable money. The current soft top CLK comes in at about £250 and I've tested the water with silly things like a 90s E55 Benz - £330 - and total pie in the sky 90s Bentley Continental R at £350. Point being is postcode can't be the deciding factor. It's probably the history of claims on similar cars in the area so perhaps pick something total bonkers and get relatively cheap insurance!

it is down to the statistics and if there are trends.

Nobody who owns an E55 would be the type to actually crash. They probably have statistics that show no claims ever.
where as the type of people who might own a 1.4 focus include a broader cross section of people including the types like my Dad who has never knowly caused a crash and my wife's friend who drives like Tony pond on a bad day. so they have statistics that show that sometimes people crash them and some of those people are similar to you.
That said there's something about a big auto that makes you go slower in town.
