  1. XR6, looks like matey has done a few quid getting it to this point, but why put those RIMZ on it? IIRC they're made for FWD models anyway, and you can get a set of Capri Brooklands alloys on t'bay or from the Capri club.... or just keep the steelies on - think it would have had the GL type on here. Still, those things aside, I would, Except it's 9 bags, but find another. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Cortina-XR6-3-Litre-V6/274306227408?hash=item3fddecdcd0:g:q0QAAOSwEIBebGut
  2. Check this out, a mark 2 1600E that appears to have been messed about with, 2.0 badermatic, leccy windows, RONG RIMZ etc These are a second choice for many now Lotus versions are getting on for £40k. So how much? This is it. Have another guess. And another. £45995, FORTY SIX GRAND. Drugs are bad m'kay? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-CORTINA-CLASSIC-1600E-AUTOMATIC-2-0/333532794667?hash=item4da81a8f2b:g:vjgAAOSwALVbMiWV
  3. SWMBO has just told me that Kelly Brook and Carol Vorderman were on Celeb Bake off thing last night. The least she can do is piss off out so I can watch it in "peace".... NSFW OBVS
  4. This comment is nothing without quotes
  5. Work related grump ... or left hand v right hand.... Currently WFH, as previously mentioned somewhere, ringing up punters, trying to get them to sort bills, attempting to resolve queries yadda yadda. Had a call just after lunch from a witheld number; had it been on m,y own mobile, it'd have gone unanswered, but as it was works.... "Hello is that Bob?" "Yes, that's me, can I take your postcode or account number please?" "No, you're a fucking scammer, how dare you phone, me, the fucking water board wouldn't ring from a mobile, I've just rung them, and you don't work for them, fuck off, if you ring me again, I'll find you and I'll beat seven bales of shit out of you" (Hangs up) WOTEVS. The righteous* indignation is normal, the swearing and threats are normal - usually on the doorstep, makes a change to get them down the phone, people are braver then.... What piqued my interest was his assertion that he'd rung the main number and been told I don't work there. So, using my Troll Facebook account, I messaged the firm under the guise of the concerned husband of a punter, asking if I work there, and that I'm concerned about scams. The reply came back, "Yes, Bob is a Customer Resolution Manager (new bollocks title, same shit different day), if you've got an outstanding job like a leak (I've not worked on the pipes EVER) or meter query (not done metering for 12 years) then you should answer. If not you can ignore the call". Well thanks very much for your support. TL:DR I work with twats.
  6. Spears and reapers Rover 25 1.6, 3 hours left, currently £90. Has some issues though... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2005-ROVER-25-1-6-si-5-DOOR-HATCH-68000-miles-SPARES-OR-REPAIR/254558797592?hash=item3b44e2ff18:g:1KUAAOSwtPNeahat
  7. If you zoom in, it does appear to have a battery tray.... OMGWTFBBQ!!!123!!! etc
  8. £710 so far for this bucket of rust BRANFYND https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Escort-Mk3-Barn-Find/392746422988?hash=item5b7182d2cc:g:BBAAAOSwNANed-kN
  9. You know the bit at the bottom of a family bag of peanuts? I'm guessing that's still not as salty as this....£15,500. I'd rather have Huggy off Eddie and be unable to fend off teh chicks with a shitty stick. Or something. As an aside, are there "replicas / tributes whatever to EVERY car that's been in anything? Exhibit One M'lud, this, every single Reliant Regal Supervan, and even that poxy Fiat out of the most overated show The Inbetweeners?? Stop it, you clueless dolphin felchers. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1974-Dodge-Monaco-Blues-Brothers-replica-with-working-speaker/133362686774?hash=item1f0d091b36:g:x4kAAOSwQvhd2~M9
  10. Not sure if this has been posted; WOTEVS M9 £7995, which on the face of it, is a lot of dough for an old Escort, but not much when you factor in OSF taxation. Perhaps it's a lower rate for estates? Looks good, I would. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Prototype-Ford-Escort-RS2000-Estate-MK1-Replica-1974-Olympic-Blue-RS-Decals/324123328814?hash=item4b7741812e:g:nR4AAOSwISRehGfL
  11. Re: radio....once you've checked everything is connected, and feel like a punt on another if still fooked, the one in mine, and many others are coded to the car, so just buying another won't work - I'm aware that I'm probably attempting to teach ones granny to suck eggs, but if not, hope it helps. There's somewhere that will recondition your old one as required so it keeps the code, but I'll be fucked if I can remember where it was; Rainham Essex rings a bell. There's been a couple of lads on the Volvo owners forum who have had blown speakers, on one side only, so if it's that, it'll be a simple fix.
  12. No you don't, I can describe it.....(It's on my working patch) Take 1/3 sewage farm (about a mile away) 1/3 Eau d'chav 1/6 superstrength skunk 1/6 desperation and a pinch of underlying racial tension.
  13. Cheers Reg, I'll put the adjuster kit on my list of stuff. Think I need an ABS ring as well, keep getting the error message "Anti-skid service required", which apparently is a 83.167% chance of it being me having a shitty ring (fnar fnar). Were you getting a message on the dash or just through the diagnostics thingy?
  14. This looks like a laugh, 300 gee gee Cavalier. On @chaseracer's manor. still registerd asan 1800 on the DVLA site though...£908 so far, no reserve. Think I'd want put the proper wipers back on, and those hubcaps can get in the sea. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Cavalier-300bhp-sleeper/254557220794?hash=item3b44caefba:g:7SwAAOSw9htehIAz
