Retirement is lurking and fleet rationalisation is in the forefront of my thinking. The Triumph is a keeper as mentioned previously.
 

Mk1 Ford Galaxy, manual, 2.0 petrol engine. Needs 3" patch underneath and a couple of pin holes on the exhaust need patching. I have several trim bits available with the car to bring it up to 'very nice indeed'. No MOT but once the two small bits are done there should be no reason for a ticket being achieved. I have a battery to fit but the bonnet release is a bit sticky at the moment, some WD40 should solve that. Sorted as of today!

These were taken on the day I picked the car up. It's cleaner now generally and had new wiper blades fitted. Drives very nicely indeed.

I'll try and post some when I get home this evening. It's tidy up top, slight ding in the bottom of the drivers door IIRC but no rust or anything really horrible. She's a nice old thing. I have a better steering wheel, uncracked rear plastic panel, working proper Galaxy clock and a new gear lever gaiter. Oh and mats.

So just to clarify, swappage of both my cars for one wafty, auto or manual large'ish car that will creep under the classic insurance umbrella. :)

Modern Beetle 1.6? Mondeo?

 

Thinking that it doesn't actually have to fit under the classic banner as I can just store it and fettle until I sell the i10 and it can go on the modernz policy.

Probably a big ask in reality with regards to the whole consideration of a swap but you never know.

Would have done a roffle for the Galaxy but there are tons of  the fuckers on at the moment and roffle overload would likely happen.

You need to be a bit careful with pez and ULEZ too - needs to be EU4 at least

Although if they’re as bad at enforcing it as the T-Charge (which a private plate may or may not fool....) then meh ;-)

Don’t sweat the ULEZ, something had to be done as the air is rank.

He’s given the true shiter an easy pass by making everything that’s historic tax class is exempt.

Thus, time to flaunt the rules and get yourself that 70’s yank you always promised yourself and cruise with impunity.

You don't need a Prius/leaf/whatever. You need to get your Toledo back on the road as it's exempt. ;)
