  1. guess i'm in faecesbook jail again. oh dear, what a shame, never mind......
  2. sorry, but you were robbed...... if that thing was any rougher you would be scraping barnacles off boat bottoms with it. i'm glad i'm not the only one to make questionable purchases!
  3. i think the golden jacks wheels will be an ebay special, only. the other bits should be available off of Steve Flowers.
  4. i am now of an age where the time i get outta bed on a morning is dictated by my bladder..... i looked out of the window to this. well ok, maybe it'll be better in the morning, no, no not really then. i think i'll give car tinkering a miss then bloody marvellous.......
  5. i too have the red and blue boggo corgi minis, though i am missing the orange austin 7 version, the maroon one been a morris mini-minor. the blue one is i think a morris too. i got the police mini van too, though i have the copper and his dogs with mine still. and that is before we start to think about the Dinky versions, the police mini cooper, seen here with the mini-magnifique the mini traveller (or was it the austin mini countyman, i cannot remember) which came in more than one colour besides white, i'm sure. and the mini "automatics"
  6. i too have several Corgi mini's, though the list above missed out the rally car, which came in 3 distinct liveries, from memory there is the 1964 and 1967 monte carlo rallys cars and the third been the sun rally, which it seems is now very valuable! i cannot find a picture of mine, which is the 64 monte car. there is also the "racing" mini, available in blue and pale yellow, mine been a very chipped blue one and there is the "wicker" sided Radford Cooper, based on the one commissioned by Peter Sellers. He had a series of cars built for himself and his then wife, Britt Ekland, b
  7. yes - got them all! for me i found that it was the Haynes Mini book that was the gateway drug. after buying that, the orange Mini followed, and then the Metro, cos, well its almost a Mini, and then the black Mini followed that. So, buying the book leads to old cars, cars lead to poverty, poverty leads to suffering...........

  13. my folks, especially me mam, would be horrified at such a car! i can hear it now "its soooooo old" and "its done soooo many miles" and "its sooooo old......." my mam asked about the Rover earlier in the new year, when it was in dock for an alternator. my reply, that it was an October 2001 car with 205,000 miles on the clock, had her go pale!
  14. it nearly got "cooperised"! i bought it off a young lad, Ryan, who bought it in 2011. he paid a whopping £450, i think for it, running with an MOT. the body was good save the 2 doors, which were pretty poor. he then spent the next 2 or 3 years buying "cobra" seats and daft wheels for it, the roof painted white before his father said to him "no, leave the car as it is, there aren't any unmolested ones left...." and so it got the roof repainted, the the door bottoms replaced and painted and then- and then Ryan discovered drinking in pubs and dancing with girls, and the car w
