  1. I remember a J plate Mk4 Series 2 RS Turbo many years ago Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Spotted on the Granada Mk3 Faceache page. Ford launched the facelift Mk3 in 1992 so the last prefacelift scars were on a J plate, however here’s a survivor that managed to wait until 1994 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. You can still order a brand new Niva https://www.lada.bg/bg/cars/4x4/urban/about.php Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. In other news, I’ve managed to crawl out from under my rock. Hope everyone has been keeping well in my absence Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Swapped the entire clocks over as the 4cyl set only had 200 miles less than the originals and all is now well. Got the leather interior in too, had to wire the electric adjustment as only had wiring for the heated seats which was available with cloth seats on the Ghia X. Also added a Sierra Cosworth 3-spoke leather steering wheel. Next up is changing the suspension as her arse is saggy and I want to add a towbar. Found a guy on the Mk3 Granada Facebook page who’s a member of the Bulgarian Sierra/Granada page who works at a bodyshop and lives 1hr from me so she will be going there for a full respray and fitting of the replacement doors, bonnet and the rest of the RS bodykit. Having to save for that as house renovations are taking priority (I can’t continue walking down the garden for a crap in the depths of winter) [emoji38] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Finally the old girl is fully legal over here and registered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Having a mate that’s into cleaning cars, I don’t have the patience.
  8. Safely back in Shetland, just need to collect my other car next week and my fleet will be complete
  9. Called it a night just outside Carlisle. Quick run down of the car: Convertible Roof - doesn’t work Suspension - clonks over bumps Exhaust - heat shield rattles Tracking - wheel wobble between 65-70 Everything else works so have auto lights/wipers, auto-dim rear view mirror, heated seats, cooled glovebox etc Glovebox - Contains no Werthers Originals ? Just over 220 miles left to do in the morning to get back to Aberdeen then on the boat tomorrow night
  10. Sorry, minor disaster of a flat battery upon collection.......well it wouldn’t be Autoshite without one would it. So £800 buys you a virtually brand new car (in my eyes). A 2008 Ford Focus CC
  11. Train No2 achieved. Next stop - somewhere in Bromley
  12. Poo Count = 1 (managed on the plane) Now on Train No1 to that there London, seats pretty good, people non-smelly
  13. Hairyplane achieved. Now to try and get some sleep aboard this contraption. Must try and break my poo count duck whilst several thousand feet in the air
  14. Left home at 1am, now at Sofia airport. Flight leaves at 6am. Why I can’t buy cars closer to home is a complete mystery to me.
  15. I remember there being something on TV years ago about a company called Rent-A-Wreck and the guy was driving a yellow Mk4 Cortina Estate that looked absolutely hanging ?
  16. Anyone up in Shetland wanting to not hire a Kia something-or-other from the local rental place are more than welcome to borrow this
  17. So in 3hrs I set off for another of my mega collections. Leaving Autoshite International HQ in Bulgaria and travelling by luxury French conveyance to Sofia airport before flying back to Luton. Have packed the essentials
  18. What a thorough conveyance of win. I especially like purchasing cars from RobT so shall put my name down for consideration on this when it comes time to move on. Rectum Mended Cellar 249/10 Wood Bouy Again
  19. I think with an eBay User ID like that, he may have taken too many blows to the head.
  20. Very similar to The Puglet, mine was a 3dr though
  21. Sorry I didn’t update this thread. I ended up getting Alex to run it up to Aberdeen for me. I’ll be down in it for the Scotshite meet in January if anyone wants a shot of it then
