  1. I’ve always lived beyond my means and spent most of my money on cars, holidays and eating out - the rest I wasted. Im grateful to the people signing up for all those PCPs as this is what makes theUK used car market the best and cheapest in the World.
  2. 1990 Ford had bought Jaguar , immediately facelifted the XJ40 including fitting their second generation Tibbe (?) locks and keys instead of the lovely black dagger key that early XJ40’s came with. Anyway pulled up at The Dorchester one night behind my mate Harvey, who was driving a nice shiny new Sovereign, he looked a bit stressed and I noticed his Guvnor standing on the pavement looking pissed off. It transpires Harvey was standing next to the Jag looking at the door lock and thinking “ That looks the same as my Sierra key...” Seems any key can lock them but not open them. Of course the engine was running with the keys in the ignition. Luckily I had a spiral bound Road Atlas in the boot so quickly stripped the wire out , fed it in the top of the door and popped the lock, try using your Sat Nav for that. Got me a round of applause from door staff and assembled chauffeurs.
  3. My brother bought a 911 from Italy a few years ago and he had to go to Post Office or somewhere , where lots of shouting and arm waving took place , he had to pay €100 and the seller gave him some temporary plates , they’re still on his garage wall 9 years later, so I hope he wasn’t supposed to send them back.
  4. In the real classic car world, values have dropped significantly in the last year, meanwhile on Planet Dagenham... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MK3-Ford-Escort-XR3i-1983-2-Previous-Owners-12k-Miles/233671186591?_trkparms=aid%3D888008%26algo%3DDISC.CARDS%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200220090753%26meid%3D4367e6f9466d4a45aa788c31dd955858%26pid%3D100009%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D2%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D174380863097%26itm%3D233671186591%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DDiscV1&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982
  5. Not normally a fan of LHD stuff from foreignshire, but even I’d make an exception for this beauty. https://suchen.mobile.de/auto-inserat/opel-rekord-e-kastenwagen-beverstedt/299483929.html?coId=ed2d61d9-41ae-4d30-961b-bf833023abd2?action=vipReco
  6. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-SIERRA-2-3-DIESEL-1985-LEFT-HAND-DRIVE-ON-PORTUGUESE-PLATES-07984932876/184380413058?hash=item2aededd482:g:mEQAAOSwaMZfIUn7 Looks pretty , but no danglies, an Indenor and Wrong Hand Drive make it a mere pastiche of the real bASe.
  7. I love this , Burberry, wood, fake BBS’ and all. I shouldn’t and if you described it to me I’d hate it, must be the colour. In fact if it was half the price , I’d have bought it! That, to me, is 200 quattro money .
  8. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/575652676435419 Best* bit of this , has got to be the logbook picture; looks like a blue Sherpa to me, seems legit.
  9. It’s a ringer anyway, look. Seriously,I’m the worlds worst mechanic and I’d feel pretty confident I could get that back running in a weekend. It doesn’t even look as if the panels got hot enough to warp. I’m afraid I can’t see why it’s worth so much, but I’m sure the insurers would rather throw £10k at a repair rather than £55,000 total loss.
  10. You used to be able to buy a mask for Ford 13” sports wheels painting, often sold in the little kiosks at car auctions with the gallon tins of tyre black and sticky numbers for windscreen pricing.
  11. The 407 shares with the Jaguar XF the distinction that for years I thought both were hatchbacks. If you’re making a saloon make it a proper 3 box, people. Both the 508 and Mk2 XF look like saloons, you’ll be pleased to hear.
  12. You’ve just reminded me of this from a few years ago, sadly still got the 3.0 in https://www.barryboys.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=37779
  13. Pretty sure the 1300 is real the Sprint not so much. Id have started my potatoshop With a car that didn’t have a Websato roof, personally.
  14. And when you’d finished with your fucked up weirdness I’d buy the bits off you and make a V8 Rover 600.
