  1. MOT'd til January Civic Petrol, which has what sounds like low compression on a Cylinder but maybe not for 200 quid https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1019634625479863
  2. Who else is just looking at the Granada?
  3. Their E30 race car is a good example. The wheels base and everything was modified to try to make it handle better but you'd not know by looking at it. I'm still not sure why he used an M3 shell when a 318i would have done given all the rework they did to it.
  4. This is going off topic a but the guy from driftworks had an automatic Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and years ago started to manual convert it years ago. During the manual conversation he also moved it over to an ITB intake manifold and designed reworked hubs to alter the suspension so he could fit a genuine race car GT1 carbon fibre body kit. The amount of modification required was incredible and no matter what you think of the car you have to admire someone who has the plums to chop up a 150 grand car even if you have deep pockets. it's so heavily modified I've no idea what it could possibly be worth.
  5. If it's something super rare I'd prefer it was left alone. If it's something like and MGB I like modifications to the engine and suspension etc but prefer they look stock outside. I think old cars, which have been overly modernised can look terrible. People like singer and RUF can make a completely new carbon fibre 911 body shell with 1000 changes from the 964 it's based on but it still looks at first glance like an old 911 and I think that's the secret. And also why the cost a million quid.
  6. I agree with that the MGB has a big following with great parts availability so demand for them keeps the prices steady but the sheet volume of them out there counters that and keeps the prices relatively low. I really like the look of the MGB but I would like one with a mk1 mx5 engine in please.
  7. I think a lot of dealers have puffed up prices on mediocre stuff that doesn't ever sell or eventually is sold at some knock down price. There'll always be demand for rare and low mileage stuff as white room companies like KGF can convince people with lots of money and investment portfolios a mk3 Escort 1600i is worth 60 grand.
  8. When Paul Newman's Rolex Daytona watch sold for 17 million dollars a few years ago it did make me think in 20 years who's going to remember who Paul Newman is? in 20 years why would anyone pay 17 million dollars for the watch of the guy who made salad dressing?
  9. Anyone good at jigsaws? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/257412136261142/
  10. I dunno either https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/284454569270?hash=item423ad04536:g:vgAAAOSw2RVhQ4G9
  11. I can still see the Mini when I click on it. I think it's just marketplace doing it's thing of being impossible to use.

  15. Nice MGF https://www.gumtree.com/p/mg/mint-mg-f-vvc-full-documented-history-immaculately-looked-after/1414893583
  16. This looks like a nice car for £750. Mot'd May https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/891382574793493
  17. The MOT history is good for getting an idea if the car has been looked after previously. I was looking at a mk3 mx5 recently that was very tidy and it has failed it's MOT the year before on HORRENDOUS rust issues. I'm guessing it had been welded up but that kind of sets the scene. The thing I've noticed recently is sellers selling cars with obvious damage but not mentioning it in the advert. This polo for instance has clearly been humped down both sides. Advert states
  18. Nice v6 Mondeo estate for 900 sheets. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/318163616776414

  20. Looks cool in white but seems a bit of a hopeless case. https://www.gumtree.com/p/bmw/white-1998-1.9-bmw-z3-white-w-hard-top-project-/1414847224
  21. £695 S-Type diesel with a long MOT. Things aren't going well https://www.gumtree.com/p/jaguar/jaguar-s-type-saloon-2006-other-2720-cc-4-doors/1414850415
  22. Nice top spec A2 https://www.gumtree.com/p/audi/audi-a2-hatchback-2003-manual-1598-cc-5-doors/1414843824
  23. A think a good welder really helps on the thin stuff. My welder just has 4 setting, which means on 1mm even at it's lowest setting it's blowing holes all over the place. My welder also sits around for long period in a not 100% moisture free environment, which messes with everything.
  24. How's your welder holding up? I always think the real test of a welder is the % of time in an hour you need to fuck around with it compared to actually doing any welding.
