  1. Looks a bit more like the corporate greenwashing movement of late-stage capitalism to me... ...but what do I know?
  2. Got the new house in some semblance of order, and now watching Eurovision with a few drinks and a late late buffet dinner. Feeling alright for the first time in months.
  3. 40p!!! *Faints* (Definitely suffering tat withdrawal symptoms here)
  4. Great haul there - the Corgi Rover P6 looks an ace find also!
  5. Surely not oil leaks - that's the Dynamic Underbody Anti-rust System (patent pending) working to spec, no? 🙃 I tell you, my Cortinas could have greatly benefited from such a device...
  6. There's a few threads on the Open Forum about it - this is the most recent, I think. Pro tip seems to be - bring a book.
  7. Going by the smallish wheel size/ ride height, I'd have said Transit rather than A Series as well. I'd love to know what that gothic fever-dream on the back is made of - is the coffin bed and canopy carved wood, or glassfibre?
  8. This cost me £975 in March. It seems a great wee thing, but I can't help but think it would've been a £400 car a few years ago. The paradox is that I was willing to pay a bit more because it has vastly fewer things fitted that could go wrong compared to newer/ more luxurious models.
  9. Definitely don't waste time trying to remove droplinks gently; after my fuckabout with such things back in December, it's angry grinder all the way in future. It seems that links don't really last long these days - the one shown was less than a year old at the point of failure, yet looks like it's spent a decade or three on the seabed.
  10. OOFT for that Montego. Very, very nice. Seems insane that these models are so hard to find; you'd think a ready market would exist to sell them in the UK. I'm still not sure why diecast partworks like these seem common enough elsewhere in Europe, just not really here? Other than the Bond series and the fairly short-lived Atlas Dinky reissues, I can't think of any comparable stuff sold on these shores from the like of Ixo or Altaya. One day I'll nab myself one of these wondrous ARG miniatures... one day. But not for a while, I'd think.
  11. Freshly applied - with bonus real bird shite. Yes, I'll wash it properly at some point...
  12. Triple pack of beige wonderment received this morning - many thanks! Will stick one into the Corolla later...
  13. Went out to Turkey in 2008; was surprised and delighted to see so much tat still in circulation. Plenty of Otosan Fords and Tofas Fiats, plus Renault 11s and 12s still blatting about - and a handful of 70s yank stuff, too. Highlights included what looked like a municipal car pound in Altinkum with dozens of dusty Taunuses and Capris lying abandoned, and a mega-rare Anadol A8 parked in a quiet residential street.
  14. That's bloody impressive! Congrats on making it there and back again in the kind of old nail that would otherwise be wearing Heinz branding if not for your intervention. Bravo!
