  1. Series III spurs & reapers. @Cluffy buy it, I'll definitely get round to fixing it at some point. Bidding starts at £500. It's been resprayed but I'm not old enough to know if it's a factory colour or not - looks like a later x300/308 shade to me. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/225898380463
  2. @HMC briefly ran a Bentley which I think shat itself expensively. Still would though, I love the look of the square Eighties/Nineties ones. Classy and understated in exactly the way current Mercedes aren't.
  3. Weird, the really cold stuff missed us. Seems to have hit north and south but missed a patch of the Midlands. It's cold but not arctic like that pic. I'm expecting an Audi Q7 to come past you in Lane 3 any time soon.
  4. 1995 Fiat Tipo 1.4 bASe in hire car white. Good luck on your travels, may your oil pressure remain within specification.

    Daily status reports please. Well done @maxxo getting through the sub-zero conditions. If I didn't know better I'd say your old c5 was too reliable so you've swapped for something with more jeopardy
  6. Phwoar, that's nice and cheap too. Where is it? Edit: Ilminster
  7. BMW news: Today I faffed about with the tailgate to access the centre brake light. Got there in the end thanks to a YT video showing me how to manually release the latch for the upper glass bit. Then the spoiler unbolts with the brake light attached to it. Then @Cluffy helped me lift the gearbox into the boot and I drove to my mates house who has a 2-post lift. Not much progress to report other than draining the autobox fluid; Mrs Grogee arrived to give me a lift home shortly after I'd got it up in the air. My challenges will be with the exhaust which is supposed to come off to get to the propshaft. Although I may unhook it and rest it on something eg stepladder to give me enough room to get at the prop flange bolts. Also the heatshield bolts are rusted to fuck but meh, I was expecting that. I've got a used torque converter to go on as well. It has six coupling threads whereas the existing one has three but I think I'm going to chance it and hope for the best. At least the gearbox numbers match up. Also I need to invent a way of pumping fluid into the box - the Chinese pump I bought is dead as a dodo.
  8. This. Mine are "rusty" but also made out of chunky pressed and welded 1/4" thick steel. I suspect the MoT tester has caught the paranoia big which makes them call out "rusty springs" which are absolutely fine.
  9. I'm not a biker so I don't know my two-wheelers but I bet this is an interesting story, BSA reacts to wave of Italian scooter imports by making its own Vesbretta.
  10. Not his first appearance... James May was on 'old' Top Gear briefly. Possibly without the spaniel hairdo.
  11. Lesser-spotted Suzuki Kizashi, £4k Hamilton. 4x4 CVT weirdness https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/2012-suzuki-kizashi-24-sport-4x4-4dr-cvt-saloon-petrol-automatic/1468900829
  12. Cavcraft's Folly: Banana engine, smiley face, tipper AND an MoT. £2500 Leics https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/1995-ford-transit-tipper-smiley-25-banana-engine/1470146198
  13. Mk1 Freelander. I think 'Stacey' lost her shit with it this morning when it wouldn't start and took a series of terrible photos then vowed to sell it on gumtree for £1600. It's in Evesham. https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/landrover-freelander/1470144036
  14. £2750 is probably VALU for a Mini these days, even one that needs work. Fleckney (excuse me). https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/rover-mini-sprite-spi/1470147565
