  1. Mmmmmmm bluebird. Round the corner from me.
  2. I’ve got a couple of them in my box in the loft. Battered from heavy play use in the 90s. still not found a Volvo 850, beginning to think they’ve been panic bought 🤔
  3. Buy it. chuck a 6BT in it and crack on.
  4. I’ve never met the guy but he sounded like he was a good bloke. Rest in Piece.
  5. Similar to you. 2006/7 I bought a 518i shark nose on a D plate for £107. It was mint apart from the smell of curry inside. Changed the whole interior but it still smelt of curry powder. Used for 2007 scally rally. Then got ebayed off. Did have a picture but can’t find it.
  6. Yup any EML or emissions related warning light on is a failure regardless of age. Glad it’s passed now!
  7. I think time has been unkind to it. Oil leaks haven’t been addressed when they develop (probably better to sort them all out at once) but things seized and broken bodges are all part of the fun putting them back together!
  8. To be quite honest, other than the seats and rear bumper, there wouldn’t have been much money to make breaking it, as most parts were broken anyway. Lol
  9. I don’t mind putting a few days hard graft into it, just look at that ST I’m rebuilding, doing it for the love. Coventry isn’t toooooo far away, but right now cash is something I don’t have a lot of. I think a lot of people are probably starting to tighten their belts with impending corona self isolation lack of wages outcome.
  10. I’m 32. I work as a mechanic in a cold workshop putting trucks back together. I can’t stand being indoors when there’s work to be done outside, I think I genuinely suffer from seasonal affective disorder as the rain depresses me. That or my PlayStation is pretty boring. I’m hoping to keep this one, use it every now and again but I see it as an investment. Fast fords through the years have shot up in value and these 220s are at rock bottom. Scurry it away in a barn for 10 years and see what the values do.
  11. I’ve put worse back on the road. It needs love and attention. Lost a lot of cash putting an Opel rekord back together after it had been pillaged for parts. It’s a good job I loved the car.
  12. I wouldn’t waste your hard earned cash. I had to change the oil in my 300tdi in quick succession (24hrs and about 5 miles done) and still went black as the ace of spades real quick. Runs sweet as a nut though.
  13. Deffo want some randoms for this! I’ve got a soft spot for these. Especially 4.0 high output ones

    £30 worth of curious stains eh? WCPGW.
  15. I’ve only ever seen ONE Diesel engine with clean oil. Mate of mine has an E39 530d with 240k up it. He flushes the oil by draining it, filling the sump with red diesel to the minimum mark. Runs the engine for 5 mins then drains and refills with fresh oil. Never seen a Diesel engine oil so clean.
  16. I’ve been away this weekend with the caravan and it’s been merlins first holiday. Came home this morning to some fine ish weather. Progress has been made putting the front end back on, and reconnected the power steering cooler and filled the system. Engine sounds more healthy now due to oil in the pump. Great. Need to sort out the headlight leveller, and next big purchase will be suspension so I can finish rebuilding the front.
  17. I bought a 73 ascona a few years back that had a picture of an AM Radio where there should have been a real one. tight bastard.
  18. I used to do that round scrap yards but not in the street. Who’d want a Seat badge anyway? Lol
  19. Exhaust isn’t yet connected I need to order some gaskets then I can fit the Powerflow system. so while I have the battery disconnected I thought I’d fit the 6 disk 6006cd player I ordered off a guy in Southampton. Unwrapped it to find this. a 6000 rds, the single CD player identical to what Dave left in. Bugger. So I pulled the other CD player out to see if the 6006 has a deeper insert in the dash.....nope, it’s been butchered for an after market double din unit across the bottom. Looks like Another part to buy.
  20. I’m still feeling like shit. Sore throat, no voice, dribly nose. But that doesn’t stop me, no point sitting on the sofa feeling sorry for myself. So I connected everything up. Some random bloke in his own car dropped off 10L of 5w30 oil from eBay. Fitted the rad and put some coolant in. And hey presto. She runs. IMG_0049.MOV
  21. My mates mum had one of these same colour same age brand new, all I can remember was a 6”2 lad can’t sit very comfortable in the back!
  22. I called in at BM Stafford to hunt for hotwheels volvos. Still no joy. Why am I the only one that can’t find them ? 😂
  23. Is that a quarter scale Jimny replica or is it just dead far away ? 😂
