  1. Love these. 4 grand gets you this pretty frilly looking one with an automatic gearbox. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-CELICA-SUPRA-MA61-2-8i-1985-B-REG-BARN-FIND-ORIGINAL-CAR-2-OWNERS-FSH/284254915528?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dee4fff6713da442e983932c6d8a8fa41%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D254939970941%26itm%3D284254915528%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A4e150789-9ca5-11eb-a0ac-929a4ecfdd6f|parentrq%3Acd4ad1331780a1b7e89233ebfff4e679|iid%3A1
  2. These are more trouble than any needy old car could manage. Something like a Jenson Interceptor would be easier to look after even it was on fire. How do the rubbers even get like that on a 10 year old car?
  3. Right up to date too. I was considering doing a "tax in post" one.
  4. And it failed mostly on rear brakes and a front springs. They called me up saying none of their suppliers can get the parts. It turns out the R26 is different from regular Renault Sport Meganes. The front springs are specific to the R26 and Renault have stopped making them.. The rear discs have the bearings built into them (because Renault) and the bearing is bigger on the R26. That kamracing site have all the parts so I've just emptied my wallet into their site and got them to send me all the bits.
  5. They're very nice to drive but not exciting. They drive almost too much like a modern car, which make them a good classic daily but not really a "fun" car.
  6. I know. i think the MGC that had the 6 cylinder had chassis or subframe changes to make it fit and this engine looks bigger.
  7. Here's one for @SiC, an MG with a BMW engine https://www.facebook.com/commerce/listing/299851014981053/?media_id=0&ref=share_attachment
  8. The Granada is next. It should be good to go I’ve been tinkering away with it the last few months . I’ve got no mojo to do any serious work on them I’ve been thinking of jacking in my garage in and just keeping the megane.
  9. Last post in before the lock (down). I didn't do too much with this in 2020. I don't know about you guys but 2020 seemed like quite a quite year? I leant it to my sister for a few weeks and that experience pushed the clutch over the edge. I was speaking to a place in Edinburgh who quoted a decent price for doing the clutch and timing belt. It had a horrible clunk from the front so fitted a new bottom arm so I could safely drive it to Edinburgh at which point I found EVERYTHING was rusty on the suspension. By the time I'd nobbed and fitted it lockdown was on and I couldn't travel.
  10. Really nice Banana cooper S. I wish I had an excuse to buy this. https://www.gumtree.com/p/mini/mini-cooper-s-r53/1401999834
  11. If Marvinsmom sold it for 5500 you could bet it would be up for 8-9 the next day somewhere. The thing about selling them is if you do then you'll probably not get another without spending a fortune. Capri's and to some extent Cortinas are now all out my price range. This is why I decided to spend more money getting a good version of a less popular car. It's nice having something that's not all been torn to bits in the past or needs torn to bits now.
  12. You really are trying to fill that garden aren;t you 😃 I agree though it looks cheap at that price. My land lord just sold 3 Minis that have holes you could get your head through for a grand each so prices are definetly going up.
  13. These white walls you can fit to your tyres. I was fannying around at my garage and heard this flapping noise coming own the lane and this 2018 Honda Jazz rolls in with an old giffer behind the wheel with these flapping around on the wheels. He'd had them fitted to the Jazz (you deflate the tyres, fit these behind the bead then re-inflate) and after a very short while they'd partially detached and were wildly flapping around on the wheels. I couldn't believe they existed never mind that someone had bought them.
  14. Looks great for 1295 quid even if it has done 284,000 miles https://www.facebook.com/commerce/listing/496555784936738/?media_id=0&ref=share_attachment
