My first batch of the year for you to enjoy...

Corolla ( sorry for the shite photo)

Posted Image

Now this thing had been seen 'cruising' the streets in the 6 months we've lived here, an absolutely shocking build - how on earth the owner thought it looked cool I will never know. Anyway, I popped out to the shops one evening and this was laid up 20 metres from where the photo is with 2 cars either side and a lot of banging going on at the front suspension.

The next morning I drove past and this was the end result - I guess they tried to weld something up and that was the end......if there was ever an advert to join the AA this is it...

The first of 2 very clean Rover 200's:

My favourite spot of the year (so far!)

I did snap this Capri before but it deserved better photos:

Clean (& rare) Honda Concerto

Another re-spot with better pics:

Nice Mk1 - probably worth about £20,000:

This looked cheap for £695:

Ranky Rover;

Metro City Special!

I was going to knock on the door about this car as the tax supposedly ran out in July 07 and I could see it was an old disc in the window when I took the pic. Today I was just about to walk up the drive and I noticed a new disc in the window. :(

Why are Fast Ford owners such twats about mis-spacing registration letters so as to make sure other road users have their attention drawn to "RS", what a fucking stupid thing to do.

Nice pics by the way - Mk1 Cavvy my fave there

Hey chill out Mk2, 'DLOZW RS' is clearly what he's trying to say, I think you'll agree thats a classy reg plate OK.

That's a special one-off car to commemorate the entry of the "Dlozw RS" team to the Polish Touring Car Championship sometime in the late 80s.Their main rivals were "DAZ 6308", a Polish washing powder company.

Top marks for finding an early saloon with the original grille still in place! :D

Hope those clear indicator lenses aren’t the beginning of something altogether more sinister...

I am forced to reconsider a belief I have held very strongly for most of my life.

These pictures prove beyond any doubt that there is a God.

It is impossible not to have a little chuckle when looking at this toasted turdbox. Look at the paint 'join' halfway up the D-pillar! Shocking.If i was walking back from the pub and came across that, i'd have great difficulty in going past it without having a quick piss on the dashboard.

Looks like there is..... Couldn't be 100% certain but that looks like its also been lowered a touch.

Still, it is very clean!

Pleased with the toasted Corsa as well, someone somewhere must be gutted. Good. :twisted:

It was right outside The Rising Sun pub - the t-junction is onto the A530 Nantwich/Middlewich road.

yeh, I've been had on the plates before....they were all the rage the last time it was actually used.I put a Golf Gti aerial on the roof too which in hindsight was not such a good thing but this was in 1993 and I was more concerned about not ending up with another rotten front wing.It's not been on the road since sep 2001 which is criminal really. I must get it back on the road this year. The pics were taken in August 06 and it still drives fine but will need a few small jobs doing for the MOT.

I would love to have seen the sequence of events that led to this - judging from the state of that wing the car was moving when the bottom balljoint let go, so it looks like the lads got to try out their repair before subsequent events spoiled their evening.

I'd like to think that the balljoint let go first, causing the car to slew off the road and then catch fire before the pizza-faced owner's eyes, who (for maximum comedy value) then smashes the back window in an impotent rage. Tee hee! Most satisfactory.

I bet he hadn't told his Mum's insurance company about those mods, either. :lol:

I'm surprised that it hadn't been stripped absolutely bare by the time the photo had been taken! The bust rear screen and forced parcel shelf suggests that most of the inevitable enormous amounts of ICE in the boot has already walked, however

I would have thought that it caught fire, (probably after being ragged around the roundabout several times), then was probably driven up the curb at high speed hence the displaced ball joint, due to the grass being ripped up in the wheels trail and no skid marks on the road.

It's a 1.4. Corsa Vegas.There's no way that'll be insured properly. Either they won't find out about the mods (unlikely), in which case he'll get £500 max, or they will, in which he'll get sweet FA.
