  1. 2009. 2019. I’ve gone right posh.
  2. Slightly depressing to think that if I were ten years older (started driving 2009 at 17) I could have afforded many of the cars I would truly love to own back then! I suppose you shouldn’t wish your life away though...
  3. I believe the green car still exists in some shape or form. If memory serves it did some time in the Elephant House at Longbridge whilst it was MG Motor UK's (lack of) sales HQ. It might even still be there. I think it might have had a KV6 in it as well. I always thought it was very Signum. Not a bad effort though from a team who, towards the end, were forced to divide their time between taming axle tramp on V8 ZT's and tarting up Indicas. Oh and manning sales booths in motorway service stations. Cheers Kev.
  4. Wow. I've just spent a fair bit of time engrossed in this thread from start to finish, some brilliant spots and a reminder that I really would like to visit the Channel Islands sooner rather than later! Funny to think that the surviving cars from the early pages in the thread are probably worth many times more now than when you papped them, the Cozzies, Integrales and Quattros spring to mind.
  5. Nice alternator conversion mister. Nice MM Minor steering wheel too.
  6. Another one I thought of on the way home. Mark 1 Clio.
  7. Good tat haulers those, rare combo as a 2.2 DTI SRI as well. I really liked my V6 hatch.
  8. Okay, Renner part no's are tricky at the best of times. But I have three potential numbers for it, two Dacia and one Renault. Dacia: 6001547488 or 6001551674 - One of these may have superseded the other at some point. Renault: 271503546R Looks like a Valeo part, but I can't find a Valeo number for it.
  9. I guess it's all relative. I mean, you don't see many Hyundai Stellars on the road today, but I don't recall them ever being that common even 20 years ago. Maybe I just live in an area of HGD (High Giffer Density), but I still see a reasonable amount of old chod doing the daily grind. Someone round the corner from me has a C-plate blue Maestro which has been papped on here before, another chap has a brace of Aggros, and there's a lovely late (J-reg, I think) Sierra Sapphire LX which I see a few times a month. Cars I used to see everywhere but now hardly see at all: Phase 1 Pug 106 - The l
  10. What's the reg Mr FP? I can give it a go, but Renner are a little tricky with their catalogues.
  11. No. We do all the street drinking on the other side of that supermarket you can see in your photo. Don't know about whiskey mind, White Lightning is still very much en vogue in Rye. Anyway, top purchasing. I'd love a V6 Coupe, although I hear they're Oliver Reed thirsty.
  12. Evenin' all. Bit of an update as I haven't been on here for a little while. To be honest, I haven't had much to report and it has been nice to be able to just drive around in a working car after the Astra debacle earlier in the year. But this evening I have something to report on the BMW. Nowt major, but about ten days ago I was going down a steep hill and braking and the brake warning light started flickering. So I checked the fluid and sure enough, it was hovering around the 'MIN' mark. No problem, I topped up with some fresh DOT4 and was on my way. But then on the way home this evenin
  13. My parents had an 806 with the same engine in and that could be made to go surprisingly well. With the same unit this must go like les clappeurs.
  14. Looks good Mr. Egg. I can’t remember the last time I saw one of those on the road, it’s only the occasional ‘F’ I spot from time to time.
