    ebay 'BARGAINS'

    Fuck me £4,000 for this and he can't even be arsed to remove the duck tape from the console or clean the seats, chancer. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1986-Peugeot-309-GR-1-6i-PETROL-5-DOOR-78k-5-SPEED-VERY-CLEAN-ORIGINAL-CLASSIC/124059147880?hash=item1ce2805e68:g:P~UAAOSwSKBeKtG0 And it's a bog standard GR, not GRi. Be a nice car for £750
  2. That 403 looks pretty cool actually

    Brand new 405

    And the good thing about them is they don't deteriorate much over the miles either, or rust. Had my current one seven years now and is still the daily driver, currently on 120,000 miles. Most I've ever spent on it was £320 a couple of years ago getting through an MOT, otherwise just routine stuff. My sister always remarks how smooth and comfortable it is when I take her out in it, and the local garage enjoy driving it. I now have a perverse determination to drive it for as many years as possible, perhaps it will outlast me.

    Did Mercedes not even bother to think what their horrible beige leather and plastic trim would look like after 10 years, let alone 20.
  8. I know the 305 GTX had the same 105bhp engine, not sure if the gearing and carburation was the same, but that thing pulled like an absolute steam train, amazing torque at low revs. I have a feeling the BX did have higher gearing.

    This looks delightful, interesting and not stupidly-priced https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1993-Fiat-Tipo-2-0-8v-i-e-Gran-Turismo-Lampredi-Twin-Cam-Sole-Survivor-Rare/283662452280?hash=item420b998638:g:LhwAAOSwYu9dvcjj

    That is fooking bootiful and worth every penny IMHO
  11. A wonderful thread indeed, I would never think I would see a Moskvich, Wartburg Knight and Fiat 850 Coupe (x2) in the same thread. What strikes me is the sheer variety of European and Japanese cars here, even in the seventies when you would expect British cars to still be by far in the majority.
  12. Agree, not sure what happened to Peugeot's seat design on the 406 when previous efforts had been so comfortable. It was one of the worst things about the car I thought when it came out. That big semi-circular ridge under the thighs didn't help either. 405s are better, 305/505s even better still.

    BX Roll Call

    Tomtation that blue GT is bloomin gorgeous! They were one of my dream cars when they came out, along with the 305 GTX. Make sure you salvage those alloys from the TRS too, would suit it a treat. I believe the later 'C' reg GTs came with the sports seats which were later to go into the GTi, and much nicer to look at than the earlier tweed ones. I found the early/basic BX seats chronically uncomfortable, they were almost concave at the back. Strangely they seemed to go in the opposite direction with the sports seats, which almost had too much lumber support, albeit more comfortable IMHO. Had a couple of GTs for a short period in the nineties in that dull solid maroon colour, here's one of them.
