One for the hardcore - a copy of Jalopy #1 from May 1992.

£4 bid start, or £10 Buy It Now.

 

Looks in decent nick; and given that a torn and slightly ink-stained copy of Issue #1 set me back £15 at the start of the year, this appears not too batshit. Seller seems to actually know what he's selling, too.

Mucho respek', good sir... I envy you not one jot, but I'm deeply grateful for your travails here on the preservation front.

If you're still desiring a copy of Issue 1 as some sort of recompense, bang me your address and I'll get one in the post to you!

Issue 23 is hot off the scanner for your reading pleasure!

 

 

Anxious to impress the family, I demonstrated the cigar lighter, producing much smoke from under the dashboard as the wiring heated up...

 

 

 

... my increased expertise in the field of car bodywork repair had lead to the development of a totally new substance to replace metal that had completely rusted away - a mixture of wire mesh, screwed-up bits of newspaper and a few tubs of filler.

Another haul of Jalopy mags has appeared on eBay, for any of you completionists out there:

 

Jalopy eBay bundle Feb 2019.jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....93/372598570727

 

Issues in this bundle appear to be:

  • Issue 10 - March 1993 (Mini Profile)
  • Issue 11 - April 1993 (BLzebub: Rover SD1 Profile)
  • Issue 12 - May 1993 (Allegro 20th Anniversary)
  • Issue 13 - June 1993 (Ford Escort Profile)
  • Issue 14 - July 1993 (Super Sizzlin' Summer Soft Top Special - Triumph Herald)
  • Issue 15 - August 1993 (Old Ton-Ups) 
  • Issue 16 - October 1993 (Austin A30/A35 Profile)
  • Issue 17 - January 1994 (Minimal Motors: Trabant/Reliant Kitten)
  • Issue 18 - February 1994 (Grace, Pace & Rust - Jaguar XJ6/XJ12 Profile)
  • Issue 19 - March 1994 (The IMPossible Dream - Hillman Imp Profile)
  • Issue 21 - June 1994 (70s Citroens)
  • Issue 22 - July 1994 (Reliant - Your Plastic Friend? Robin Profile)
  • Issue 23 - August 1994 (Big Fords: Zephyr/Zodiac Profile)
  • Issue 28 - March/April 1995 (Ancient vs. Modern: Triumph Herald & Skoda Rapid shootout) 

Now, this is tricksy as I AM a completionist, and it DOES contain the two issues (Issue 12 and Issue 13) which I happen to require in order to finish off my run of Britain's smallest, dullest motoring mag from #1 to #31.

 

However, it also contains twelve issues which I have no particular need of, and in some cases already have one or two duplicate copies knocking around.

 

HNNNNNNGH.

 

Bids invited from £25. P&P is a mildly outrageous £6.95. So £32 all in (assuming no other bids).

 

Hypothetically speaking, if I were to bid on this, and hypothetically won, would anybody be hypothetically interested in taking the twelve duplicate copies off my hands for £15, posted? It really is only # 12 and #13 I need here. Hypothetically.

 

(Working out at £1.25 a copy delivered, this is less than the original cover price - even some 25 years on. OMG BARGAINZ.)

 

 

Also available are some cheerily confusing separate listings for another two copies of Jalopy, from the same seller:

  • Issue 8 - January 1993 (Old Frauds: Cortina Capers)

https://www.ebay.co....on/372597470366

 

  • Either Issue 9 - February 1993 (VW Beetle Profile) [which is what the listing says] OR
  • Another copy of Issue 11 - April 1993 (BLzebub: Rover SD1 Profile) [which is what the listing photograph depicts]

Jalopy #11 Cover (April 1993).jpg

 

https://www.ebay.co....93/372597474215

 

Both have a reassuringly low start, though do have a bid each on them (not me, promise).

 

Kinda makes you wonder why he didn't job-lot all of them together, though - unless he started listing them separately, did the first two, thought 'bollocks to this lark' and just fired the last fourteen up together...

HFM?? Seventy quid once postage is factored in? A fiver an issue? Bloody hell.

 

With seven hours left to go, I'm afraid I'm oot for this run.

 

 

Surprisingly, after a complete dearth of copies up for sale for some months, we now have the floodgates well and truly opened:

 

Issue 1: May 1992

https://www.ebay.co....-3/333080972625

 

 

I'm now waiting breathlessly to see if copies of the fabled Issues 12 & 13 appear in this guy's listings next... ooh, I'm all of a-flutter. Bidding thus far seems brisk, mind.

 

(Looks like he got fed up listing them seperately, too.)
