  1. Very low mileage small auto. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2801310536757162/
  2. Looks in very nice condition. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2952440691507620/
  3. Three of my fleet's mot's expire in July, a saving of £135 in test fees. Intend to sorn the Clio and Volvo about November. Will invest in a set of of winter tyres for the Hippo.
  4. I like that, and it looks like the seller may be a car dealer, if so might take a low offer. These can't be far away from added Ford scene tax, pity its not closer to me.
  5. Good luck getting this insured. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1505181346351703/
  6. Spring 1996 me and other members of a local Land Rover Club. From the left, Bob, my tame mechanic and his Series 3 109 five door Safari, powered by a Nissan 2.8, 6 pot diesel. Dave the builder with his son and a late 2a 109 Truck Cab powered by a Perkins 4.203 diesel running Range Rover diffs. Me and my 2a 88, standard 2286 petrol van. Ray and his Series 3 Lightweight rag top, powered by a Range Rover 3.5 V8.
  7. My father and his type 1 Jetta, parked next to one of the many Marina/Ital's I ran throughout the 80's. My son and my newly acquired Station Wagon, picture taken in 1990.
  8. Rare Rover. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3819640371444076/
  9. Early Bora and very tidy looking MG.
  10. In and around Hednesford this week.
  11. Largish Camper Van,with a dodgy past, well specced, no Mot. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Renault-Master-Camper-van-1993-2500cc-high-roof-van/224036252136?hash=item342999e9e8:g:rp4AAOSwWbRdwdWV
  12. It could be a good project for a Land Rover Licker, if its actually registered as series Land Rover and a V5 can be obtained from DVLA. Looking at the pictures the chassis looks solid, only missing the out riggers and the ends of the rear cross member. All of which usually need replacing on a rebuild and are readily available at a modest cost. The power take off has some value, its not one I've seen before as it appears to run off the front of the engine crank. The last Land Rover series pto complete assembly I saw advertised on Ebay sold for £1600. The engine looks like the 2.2 Diesel, which was used in many 60's to 70's BMC commercials including the fantastic Austin Gypsy. However the pto is not from a Gypsy as they ran off the gear box. I have enough series body parts to build on that and if it wasn't 120 miles away I'd possibly be interested in buying it. Any way, here's a couple of pictures of my old Gypsy wrecker, sold about 20 years ago., note the sign writing.
  13. Unusual Land Rover based vehicle. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/569260263791475/
