No epic journey. No trains or busses like before. Simply one man... his trusty Octavia steed... and a car transporter.. embarking on a not so epic journey this afternoon... after a few hours kip!

Let the guessing begin.. not a talbot this time. But a another marque I'm loyal to.

Arf, I wish... stock image, sadly!

Though I saw one at Nutts Corner a few years back, but left it cos I thought £35 was too steep...


Congrats on MOAR Skoda!

Nice colour. we need more pics though.

That looks class. Those alloys are Ronals I think. Might be worth flogging in 4x100.

Well bought indeed.

Is the 'terry towelling' numberplate muff a period accessory? Long before the 'hot dubbers' began their 'alt'Dash plate location/ANPR fudgerry....

I don't mind posting pics of my sambas and other stuff with the reg numbers on show, but not my daily driver. I don't want my everyday cars linked directly to me, online or on social media. Little bit of anonymity isn't a bad thing sometimes

I love my skodas too

Color meets approval here. Bet it'll shine up nicely if you try.

Daylight pictures needed!

No grand photos unfortunately. Moved to the very back of the garden for the moment... No room in the yard... (temporary set back).

The favorit is single point injection and running a distributor whereas the felicia is multipoint and has coil packs. Both are supposed to be 67bhp... anyone any experience on how they compare. Apart from loading on the trailer and stunting about the yard, I haven't driven it yet!

100% solid gold shite, that - in every respect. Colour just looks better and better every time I see it.

I deffo had a full dealer info pack for the Favorit Flairline; must have a hoke and see if I still have it kicking about.
