Fiat Tempras intrigue me.

I'm kicking myself for not bidding on a mint (and I mean MINT), 1994 26,000 mile Tempra SX 2.0 Estate which was at Saltash car auction earlier this year. Ive sold new Peugeots which were in worse condition.

It eventually went for £600 and I've always wondered what it would have fetched on ebay with some lovely pics - no doubt a fair bit more. Have never seen it advertised since so someone's probably cherishing it.

Yeah, I know what you mean about the Tempra. I kinda feel the same about the Lancia Dedra too.

A rather poor example of last summer's must-have 'scene' accessory?

On those early 309s, the back screen is the tailgate, so if it gets broken, the steel part just hangs floppy on the rubber frame, and a taped up tarp wouldn't work. So something, anything with more integrity is required...

Ah! - good thinking 'Joe.And on the roof - that's the old ever-poplier 'folding table/bed-head/whatever to cover a broken sunroof' repair.It all begins to make sense.

These two are in the same weird car lot that looks unused for a few years, just a car park really with 4 or 5 garages along the back.

I'll have the wing off that Accord please! Initially thought it looked very clean, but rear arches look like they're going.

1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)

And a couple of modern Toyotas.

Huzzah for pressed ally plates!Also, "AR" suffix plates (Chelmsford?) are quite often applied to Ford staff and press cars... I know of an RS500 ex-press car on a GAR plate, I've seen a few-thousand-mile Series 1 RS Turbo which was ex-Ford use in a museum too on something-AR. And my ma's old 1993 Escort Cab, a competition prize registered by Ford themselves, was Kxx CAR. So they're often fairly well looked after for the first few years (although I'd hazard a guess some of the performance models may well be severly thrashed by magazine writers!).
