  1. Old signs fetch big money here. Quite often see them at car boots in terrible barley legible condition that the sellers think are worth hundreds.
  2. No idea why. Check engine light came on, then power loss, limp mode I guess, then I noticed what I thought was steam in the rear view. Pulled over then noticed the flames. Then I legged it... Minutes later things started exploding so I legged it some more. I'm ok, car's obviously fucked, shop will need new doors and windows...
  3. Today has not gone well... Totally fucking fucked.
  4. This is my sphere tool I got it from French ebay. Accumulator sphere change on a 2.5td takes about 10 minutes with this.
  5. My C6 had been behaving perfectly fine until last week when the speedo display suddenly died. 600 euro ish for a second hand replacement or 175 to send it off for repair. I found a repair kit on French ebay for 17.90 which included the chips required (probably about 3 euros worth) and instructions. I bought a hot air desoldering gizzmo and a bench magnifier from amaznon for less than 50 euro and set to repairing it. Dash display can be removed in about two minuets, which was a surprise, I was expecting to take half the car apart... No pictures of my crap soldering, but it now works , no smoke on first turn on so that's a result
  6. Posty has delivered this : 122 pages of temptations.
  7. I lurv XM's. They're not as scarey to own as most people think. Just sold my 2.5, currently in negotiations to aquire a V6, same green as this.
  8. No batteries required...
  9. Maybe a coincidence but it was "drive it" day in France yesterday. Organised by the FFVE. I went on an "essential" ride out in the Buick to somewhere I shouldn't have been... Could hear a few interesting cars being given a thrashing 😁
  10. It's a sad day today. My local emporium of diecast goodies has closed đŸ˜ĸ That right hand window was full of delicacies last week 😭 Which was when I bought this: ☚ī¸â˜šī¸â˜šī¸
  11. When did Buragos get so expensive? Beer made me buy it now anyway... Need even more beers for the Norev one đŸ˜ĸ
  12. Cor, for 895 I'd put up with the steering being on the wrong side and no Diravi 😊
  13. Latest evilbay haul has arrived. Yes, more Buicks Franklin Mint Skylark. ERTL 1912 Buick White Box 1936 Buick Special. Not a Buick but a Chapron Limousine. Somewhere under that naff body work is a Traction Avant
  14. As the C6 has been behaving I treated it to a posh wash and wax car wash on Saturday. Since then there's been a nice warm wind from the south that's dumped half the Sahara in France. 10 euros wasted đŸ˜Ŗ
