  1. That Fiesta is a total honey!! I wonder what the number plate was originally on.
  2. Been looking through some old photos tonight - can't help thinking I should have hung on to this one a bit longer Lovely old wagon this.

Was going to spend a bit of time and money fixing it up, but in the end @colc took it off my hands.
  3. This is the only Cavalier I ever owned and my first Vauxhall, an LS automatic that had been used as a private hire cab for most of its life and had something like 165k on the clock.

  10. That’s spectacular! And the best price possible too. Whats it like underneath?
  11. Wow! Glad to see this came good in the end! Where in the world are you now?
  12. I came across a 1/24 or 1/25 Polistil Regata once, in a small shop in Denmark. Didn’t buy it, but I remember the boot lid opened, unlike the Bburago version I already owned by then.
