  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 !

  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. BBC

  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.

  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?

  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)?

  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.
