  1. 'Such spiteful comments this delusionist is posting whilst trying to sell an overpriced Renner; been for sale a while now, at different prices, but who would want to deal with such a potentially unpleasant person? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/renault-5-le-car-2-1985-1108cc-mint-show-car-as-seen-in-the-french-magazine/153721993879?hash=item23ca8b7a97:g:ujgAAOSwvMBdyo1l 'renault 5 le car 2 1985 1108cc mint show car as seen in the french magazine' blocked so far ali-000-786 pdub-29 Ho HO HO ! What don't people get! No more silly questions offers etc! Cant people read and understand? the answer is NO! you will just be blocked and reported to ebay! Small minded change people just pass! It's not my fault you have tiny pockets! go away! You know who you are! Don't think your cleaver ! you pretty sad ! wanting to pretend you can afford such a car when clearly you live in a dream world! Was offered 5K at the last baston show and turn that down! The only way I could let it go cheaper was to sell the alloys and put it back onto the the steels as i've done. Was original up for sale at thorney car and classics for £6995 this is a massive price drop and no room here for any sort of price negotiations in away or form you will just be blocked and reported to ebay! one hugh loss and thats the price ! as stated ! get yourself a classic for a bargain with nothing to do but enjoy! buy with real confidences sad to see this classic go for a song! Other bits seen in the picture are avaible seperately "see my other items"! You are buying the car not the other bits! ie wheels bumpers!
  2. Thanks for that, really did brighten my day; excellent, ta.
  3. Blimey! Penultimate pic is of the Colliery Tavern, bottom of Wayman St, corner of Southwick Road. Wearmouth pit baths on left of pic. Grew up in Wayman St in the 60s, in the street that would have been behind the billboards, picture dated around '73/'74 mebbes? Happy teenage and earlier memories there. Couple of Wayman St car memories from those days: a black and red, tatty, Morris 8 series E two door, a blue Panhard, parked at opposite ends of street, and a Ferrari Dino driving slowly down the street, with a 'Jason King' a like at the wheel. Thanks very much for posting the pics, great. BBCM (living in exile, away from canny auld Sunlan').
  4. Have always found simple cars to be focused and pure = more fun, in many ways.
  5. Hi, Above are my two Charades, the red and the silver; third car, the four door, was a loan car. Both red and silver were bought with around 4 to 5000 miles on each, so were in fairly 'as new' condition. Red one was chopped in for a Smart Roadster - big mistake, the Roadster is a fairly useless car, nowhere near as much fun as a Cappuccino or a MR2, not to mention being temperamental and difficult to work on. Still have the silver Charade, getting on for 9 years now, and its recently passed the 35k mile mark. Spent most of its life in Brighton, but has been used for regular long distance runs up to Staffs, Mid Wales and Tyneside. Totally reliable, no issues, except the EML light has been 'on' for a few years. Now that the light is MoT fail, will need to get it sorted. As with Rave's example, its the second downstream sensor that's indicated, so will have to switch it off come the test, and see what happens. Heaviest load its carried so far is a 2CV engine from Redditch to North Staffs, nee botha, man. In a hurry one lunchtime, I jacked it up in the wrong place, and damaged the radiator, so replacement was fitted. Eventually. The 4 door loan car was from Clarion Cars in West Worthing, who were once Daihatsu dealers. At the time in 2014, it had covered 130 odd thousand miles, and was still as sweet as a nut; brilliant. An automatic, too; just like driving an old Issigonis auto Mini, or a dodgem car; really really great fun around town. Last time I checked on line, it's still on the road with around 145k on it! They're all great fun cars, very well made, characterful, comfortable, easy to work on, spacious inside, and very very cheap to run. Genuinely found both to be more real world fun than a nearly new Panda 100 I owned some time ago; mind, my boggo 950cc AX was much more fun than the bloody Panda, FFS! Have kept careful mpg records over the years, here are some findings: Medium to fast run Brighton to North Staffs, up the A5 = 58mpg Mid Wales mountain road tour in winter conditions = 62mpg Local touring around East Sussex/Romney Marsh = 61mpg Fast run Sunderland to Brighton = 47mpg M40 motorway flat out, full throttle (not exceeding 70mph) = 42mpg thanks, BBCM
  6. Yes, original best: simpler the better.
  7. Here's mine, the second of two; one of my favourites from approx 2009 to 2012: should have kept it . . . Low mileage, vgc etc, £400 at Birtley car auctions. Full of character, warmth, comfort and simplicity.
  8. The vendor is full of 'speculator' shit: FFS. About 3.5K worth of speculative pounds too much. Nice looking motor, though.
  9. It's re-listed: 'Renault 4GTL Never been NEAR gritted roads' “Do you know for a nicer example” 'Once again, this week has seen falls in sterling exchange rates. This serves to increase the value of imports. This is a classified ad. You have seen what's out there for you money' Reg no. REN 004 = unreal, not on the system? Grasping fuckwit chancer? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Renault-4GTL/282598423364?hash=item41cc2dbb44%3Ag%3A4M4AAOSwcklZjUIg
  10. The Hove based 26k mile Proton is up for sale on eBay again; wonder why its now also for sale on ATrader, at a higher price than was bid first time (£440.00)? Sellers eBay feedback gives a clue . . . http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201706126364307?postcode=rh101nr&advertising-location=at_cars&radius=1500&sort=price-asc&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&make=PROTON&page=1 Meanwhile, this looks like a low mileage Protonic bargain: http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201706176549010?radius=1500&make=PROTON&postcode=rh101nr&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&advertising-location=at_cars&sort=price-asc&page=1
  11. As Viv Stanshall said of hang-gliding '. . . a novel way of committing suicide.'
  12. Not boring at all; very interesting to compare long term experiences, thanks.
  13. Fitted a 2CV indicator unit into a Dyane with bathroom sealant; a good bodge, lasted a few years.
