    Could someone not have retained the logbook and VIN plates and are just keeping them 'current' with the hope of cashing in in later years?
  2. My old man rented cars for the drive to and from Heathrow for the family trips abroad. Being from Yorkshire, he always rented the smallest car, hoping for an upgrade when the family and luggage wouldn't fit. One time Hertz brought round a Mk1 Fiesta, and their was no chance of everything going in. He whinged and kicked up a fuss, and they brought round a 127 as an alternative... He grumbled away as he tried to load up the cases, and low and behold they all fitted. I guess the Fiat had a deeper boot as the spare was under the bonnet. He was so impressed, he went out and bought one to replace my Mums 1980 Mini City the following week.
  3. I had a 1.8 Avant, on LPG, and it wasn't that bad.
  4. It's is a Corvair.
  5. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2506840689545455/permalink/2979636932265826/ Needs a bit of lidseed, but hey, any more pov and it'd be Rover 200
  6. Could be from a Fiat 124 Sport or Spider
  7. If my lottery win comes in, I'd be having that to convert to a house. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't need planning permission to stick it on a bit of land, as it's on wheels would it be classed as a mobile home?
  8. We had these for a while in Leeds too, too big for the roads, they were awful trying to navigate the medieval streets of York. Watching these from above, when I lived in a high rise, they reminded me of slugs wandering around the city centre.
  9. I do like how these look, saloon over a hatch anyday. I used one in NZ, 1.8 Auto if I remember correctly. Comfy if dull. I was in my early twenties, so I'll probably like it now!
  10. Had a run out this weekend. Leeds to Manchester, then up to the Isle of Harris in the Hebrides. For legitimate reasons I will add. Drove up through Glen Coe, via Ben Nevis and over to the Islands, empty roads - and I mean empty. The C180 performed impeccably, only used a tank of fuel to get there, and got out without any aches or pains. I must say, I'm rather impressed with it! T
  11. Those Victor's always look like they have received punch in the plums.
  12. Friends of mine organised and created that stunt. They used to do a similar thing for the old Top Gear Live shows, but from a crane rather than a Dam. I've really warmed to Flintoff, I just think that he doesn't suffer from, or actually enjoys fear!
  13. I had one of those tiles on my keys for a year or so, that's how long the non-changeable battery lasts. It was pretty useful. Shame you can't program the sounder to say 'Set me free you Crazy Bi@tch!!'
  14. Mercedes passed the MOT the other day. Had advisories for the rear tyres wearing, and slight play in a NSF link rod. Overall pretty impressed with this one!
