  1. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/294477585034?hash=item44903b5a8a:g:GJ8AAOSwjVphbxoc could be a nice little project for someone, and rare too see one with a hard top. its ADO16 based, and as it happens Kerry has a 1300 GT engine sat in the garage all ready.....
  2. have dragged the Metro out of its slumber today, and driven it up to George's so he can sort it out an MOT. its the first time out in over 2 years. what do we know from our drive today? well, there is some vibration when under way, which is i think flat spotted tyres. and the brakes are hopeless. there is not much braking unless the pedal is mashed to the floor. but it does ride very, very nicely now on its refurbished displacers, far more compliant than before with actually some bounce when needed, so that will be the first thing that George will be looking at. and guess what, who was the first thing we saw when setting off, in an untaxed and untested car? it IS insured, not that matters without the other paperwork. yes. a bloody copper. lucky for me, he was more interested in getting up to Maccy D's than on the metro's paperwork! and Kerry has been enjoying Cocopop too and from work this week. the car is riding beautifully. i have had a run around the block in it, and well, i didn't much enjoy it. there you have it, i didn't really enjoy driving it. not at all. so much so, i haven't used it myself for work since it came back. not that really i want to be in a small, slow car like on the Parkway/A19/A66 in rush hour. i think its future, along with the metro and mini 1000 are going to need to be seriously considered over the coming weeks and months.
  3. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/324830603150?hash=item4ba169a78e:g:018AAOSwdsxhUa6A MK 2 jetta GTi, and a 16v to boot. in Norn Iron, shame some dub lickin' buffoon will end up getting it, and then ruining it....
  4. £12.50 already on fleabay, the Mr Bean mini....
  5. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2060766877405155/?ref=saved&referral_code=null i find these AMF-Harley Davidson-Aermacchi heaps oddly alluring.
  6. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/373738344402596/?ref=saved&referral_code=null worryingly close to home, with a clean, and i mean clean mot history. shame then, that it seems to have had a 50,000 mile haircut and that there is something not right with that o/s/f door and wing.......

  8. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224642392768?hash=item344dbae2c0:g:qIIAAOSwDEJhYve2 if the big green cruisin' machine above is that bit too green, but you still want some V8 MOPAR lovelyness, then how about this one. which i didn't know that you could buy the Fury III without a roof. which is nice, though maybe not such a good idea here in rainy old blighty.
  9. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174973366409?hash=item28bd39b089:g:mLAAAOSwBJRhYhBq i've found the PERFECT replacement for the Rover..... a station wagon, about the same size an aircraft carrier, with v8 MOPAR power, just right when i live in an edwardian terraced house!
  10. Cocopop has achived an MOT pass, the first time it in 2 and 1/2 years that the car has been tested. now to tax it, and use it, and hopfully enjoy it at least a bit before the bad weather starts and i've got to put it away. again.
  11. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/393619225352?hash=item5ba588bb08:g:Sy8AAOSwgn5hYFwD another minty mint maxi, for £5k. is that really what a nice maxi is now worth?? still would though, cos i like a Maxi. for some reason.....
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/234226986920?hash=item3689042fa8:g:7JIAAOSwLxZhYZ3T stripy special allegro, now i thought they only came in Tara green, but apparently they came in blue too. this one is nice and original, though the suspension is down on one side, and the 1500 e-series has become an a instead.
  13. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224640042676?hash=item344d9706b4:g:hKcAAOSw1BlhYGNb nice looking monty, that only needs the pound shop hubcaps binning to improve it.

  15. Got all 4 cones changed on Cocopop, at last. George has had a mare of a job with it, as everything has been seized solid, and then the other week he had been in and out of the garage to deal with loonies running outta fuel. the car is more like a monster truck instead of the low rider, that we were driving before hand. car is booked in now for its MOT next week. the first time in more than 2 years we have had the tracking done, now we have to run it for a bit, and then get the tracking done again when the suspension settles a bit.
