The other day I travelled to North Wales to pick this upIMG_20180311_143813.jpg
It wasn't very niceIMG_20180311_145809.jpg
Had a puncture on the way. Spare was flat so had to inflate that first
Then I took it to see a local landmarkIMG_20180311_152613.jpg
I took it to its new home another 30 miles away. Nobody mentioned the upside down astroturfIMG_20180311_170204.jpg
This chap had a nose thoughIMG_20180311_170228.jpg
12 plate tow vehicle not shite? Yeah rightIMG_20180311_152633.jpg IMG_20180311_145521.jpg

I travelled to Monmouth to pick up a two owner 10,000 mile from new 306

One owner until it was given to a 17 year old. Car didn't live much longerIMG_20180208_143327.jpg IMG_20180208_143532.jpg

I suppose it is technically now a four owner car but the third (me) didn't keep it longIMG_20180309_100712.jpg

Poor thing

Some Peugeot 305s were collectedIMG_20170415_143121.jpg IMG_20170524_131800_hdr.jpg

They were tested for rotIMG_20170415_154803.jpg
Then stripped and weighed inIMG_20170602_170348_hdr.jpg
But not before the engines were tested and revved properlyIMG_20170531_153322_hdr.jpg

Badly bodged MK1 Cortina with a Fiat twin cam was taken to the bodyshop who said "no thanks"IMG_20170523_141055_hdr.jpg

Took it to Brightwells afterwards where it fared much better. My trailer even features in their auction catalogue

This was smashed up and dumped outside the yard. Was there all day half blocking the lane so I dragged it into the yard.IMG_20170807_114843_hdr.jpg IMG_20170807_134000_hdr.jpg

Called the cops. It turned out to be nicked and they sent a recovery company who collected it the next day and took it 30 miles away.
It was later spotted locally back on the owners drive. Madness, it was ruined. Why on earth he would pay to get that back I do not know!

It was totally rotten underneath. The estate was in far better condition. If it wasn't for the bent and rotten roof where the yellow one had rested for the last 15 years then I may have fixed it. Then engine out if it is now in a black 305 van belonging to Jon.k

That Terrano has a cracking MOT fail sheet, although it was tested twice in a month and the galloping rot only took hold between tests :D

 That nosey 'chap' is a girlie, a spinster in fact. :-)

 

 The Yellow tag denotes it's a heifer (female) that hasn't had a calf yet, but is hopeful.

 

 Pedant mode :off.

Ha! Yep guilty. Not seen it in the flesh yet but I was prepared for rot. Not running yet either but the seller said it should run, apparently she shed a tear when it went. My mate also shed several when it arrived....

I'm not bitter, I knew it was going to be a rusty heap of shit.

Thankfully its now a little bit less rusty or shit.

One owner for most of its life. Full service history but a bent mot. Ah well, still happy with it. No desire ever to go to London again any time soon though
