  1. well bought there, i had a couple of them mark 1 focus's as company hacks back when they were new and thought they are a superb car. i thought them streets ahead of the equivalent astra and as as bigger leap forward over the mark 6 escrot as a modern jet fighter is when compared to the Wright brothers flyer. and that one looks a good 'un, i dont remember the last time i saw one running, never mind one with the back arches still made of metal! one i had was a 2 litre ghia saloon, the only thing i didn't like much was the silly little fold down armrest thing on the captains chair, and i don't recall that one been any heavier on pez than the 1600 i had before it was. goes to show, though that there are still really nice second hand cars to be found out there!
  2. good luck with that then, given its blowing a gale and raining here this morning.

  8. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334198155449?hash=item4dcfc328b9:g:wp0AAOSwI2Fhes2e i have found the replacement for the Rover. a chevrolet station wagon that is so big it doesn't fit in any of the photographs. a 5 litre V8 is fitted, just what a guy needs when petrol is the better part of £6.50 a gallon........
  9. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/373772137465?hash=item57068e33f9:g:UWwAAOSwB-NhevdY this Beaumont is a chevrolet parts bin special from Canada. built in South Africa, and now here in blighty. isn't it lovely? i think so.
  10. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334093230120?hash=item4dc9822028:g:itoAAOSw4E1hAboB this is the sort of motor that Harry Callahan would be driving round in Magnum Force, or The Enforcer..... shame about the insert in the back quarter beauty strip, still i guess it would glue back in or something.
  11. marvelous marvin, the mini-metro has achieved an MOT pass. on the second time of asking, mind, but a pass is a pass. its take a real good flush of the brake fluid, and the front callipers have needed some persuasion to get them working, but now a least they are functioning as they should. no wonder there seemed to be little or no brakes on the car on the drive over there! what did it fail on? two worn ball joints, with an advise for brake imbalance on both axils. the worn ball joints were mentioned as an advisory on the last MOT several years ago. now it has had the ball joints changed, and the brake balance advisory notes have been addressed. and it now has a shiny MOT pass to show for it. which is nice. only thing i need do now, is find it some winter quarters for it to wait until the better weather in the spring.
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/403245971927?hash=item5de35539d7:g:WCEAAOSw-4ZhcWfj more MOPAR lovelyness, in the shape of this 50's New Yorker. just right for drive-in movies and crusin' about. them wheels are shit though. i wonder how hard it'd be to find something better to go on it?
