  1. Ever wanted a Megane CC with the front end of a CLK? Well BYD got you covered... According to Wiki, it has a 2.0, inline-4 thats powering the front wheels, via a 5-Speed CVT gearbox... It sold a record setting 103 models over its entire production run! *According to Wiki Its listed as both the S8 and F8, pending what photos you look at. (As in, some photos have S8, others F8) Id love to know what chassis it's based on, knowing the Chinese market of the past 15 years it'll no doubt be a old VW Passat, Citroen ZX or Austin Montego...
  2. Another that I'd honestly own, I've grown a soft spot for them of late.... £1495. Nice to see one that's not silver or black too! But I guess that after 19 years & 110k miles that the battery will be nothing other than a paperweight by now? https://www.gumtree.com/p/toyota/automatic-hybrid-toyota-prius-1.5-..£20-tax-..mot-november-2020...-£14/1370365969
  3. I always said that with it being small, two tone, RWD and powered by a 1.6 that it's basically a Corolla AE86. 🤣
  4. I won't lie, I honestly like these.... £1150 for it too. Big engine, LPG conversion, has MOT and its an oddball! https://www.gumtree.com/p/chrysler/chrysler-crossfire-3.2-v6-gas-bi-fuel-long-mot/1369439412
  5. A case of HOW MUCH? £1450...Im sure they only cost double that when new? Normal speele, low milage, etc etc...and Im sure I saw this for sale a month or two ago too. https://www.gumtree.com/p/chevrolet/chevrolet-matiz-1litre...only-2-owners..drives-smoothly..low-miles-52k/1370270677
  6. As of last Friday I don't work with in haulage as I was made redundant. I wont go into the nitty gritty of it. But yeah, others here know of the amazing* workmanship* I've encountered there over the last 6 months since I've been doing trailers. Last one I had was a bit of "welding" that had been done to a cover tray (Tray that bolts ontop the chassis of the trailer to store crap), they are prone to cracking on the right side support arms so some have had an extra bit of metal welded for support. This one I came across the bracket had been very badly spot welded on...then the rest 'secured' with silicon paste! If this tray was to fall off, it would case a crazy amount of damage! Or finding a set of newly fitted brake shoes that had been fitted wrong, causing an axle to have little to no breaking power. Wiring repairs someone had been using spade terminals and leaving them exposed...on wires that are exposed to the elements. Not like there was a box full of proper crimp/heat connectors, along with lots of electrical tape kept in the stores... Suzue sockets that had been fitted and wired wrongly. You'd think that once you fitted it you'd test it? Nope, they've fitted it and so the trailers been on the road with some lamps not working for the past 12 weeks or so. All that was within the last 2 weeks of me working there I should add, there's plenty more shit like that.
  7. They are based on one of the "Drift Yo" cars of choice, the Nissan Silvia (One of the 90's gen,), then they also made a drop top model which was based on...the 90's model Ford Mustang! And then even made another coupe based on the S15 Nissan Silvia! I've always loved the crazyness of Mitsuoka, the fact they still churn stuff out is impressive too!
  8. I was made redundant today, considering I work(ed) in a now 'essential' industry and was only told last Wednesday that redundancy were taking place... 7 and a half years working there and I never even got a "so long", let alone a good luck. And right in the middle of a national lock down, global pandemic and start of rescission in the oil industry(and all that befitted from it) in Aberdeen, and no doubt global recession in general. Fucking yay.
  9. Deeply saddened to have heard this! Like many I’d met Richard a on a few occasions, 2 Shitefests, a few Crail meets and the most recent was ‘How Many Left’ at Alford last year. A genuinely great, friendly and knowledgeable guy and will be missed! My thoughts are with Robin and Family!
  10. Sorry I haven’t made any updates or a list for this yet, life’s a bit shit just now so things are on back burner. 😕 Hope you all understand.
  11. Wow, never actually expected any interest...even if bought on others behalf! 😃 Once in a desktop I’ll get round to updating the list.
  12. So after thinking hard, I've decided to get rid of the ol girl....I'm wanting to thin down my 'fleet' this year and sadly it's not made it, my loss is your gain! Yes, we got our self a ROFFLE! 😁 So the Bad: - As said in earlier posts, theirs an intermittent grind/rumble sound from the front somewhere. - Likewise if you thrash it too hard or drive above 80mph for too long it throws up a EWL and feels as if there is no boost! If you stop, turn it off and wait a few minutes and start again it's gone off and works fine(Unless you set it off again. - The bodywork looks shit, its solid though! The good: - MOT till 21st August! -Automatic entry to Autoshite high mileage owners club, shes past the 200k miles mark! - Its a luggage loader. - Is an car. - Cheap - About 3/4 of a tank of Shell V-Powwah Diesel! - RELIABLE ISUZU DIESEL M9 PULLZ LYK AN TRAIN I KNOWS WHATS I GOTS Tickets at...£4 a ticket, and I'm based about 20 miles north of Aberdeen. Any questions, just ask! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 37. 38. 39. 40. 41. 42. 43. 44. 45. 46. 47. 48. 49 50. 51. 52. 53. 54. 55. 56. 57. 58. 59. HAPPY ROFFLING. 🥳
  13. Don't ask why I was looking at Avengers... Sale title is just "One off car"...description is equally as dire. Apparently is was stickered up to advertise "PlayStation game Need for Speed"... Oh, and the price is an amazing £4,500! https://www.gumtree.com/p/dodge/one-off-car/1365292458
  14. So my work has taken delivery of brand new Scania R450's.... We were taken over by a bigger firm late 2018 so now being taken fully into there ranks these past few months. Meaning we are now moving to what trucks they want us to take. Which is Scania, so new vehicles are overall 'fleet' spec. We've had a few in the time I've been there, but they have been a case of acquired when taken over another componey or what not, so not been in the componey colours. Personally none of us workshop staff like working on Scanias, so this move is going down well.... Well what can I say? Delivery mileage and throwing up ABS/EBS faults and one of them with an oil leak....I shit you not! 🤣
  15. How can I take part in this? *looks outside, LS400 looking right back at me* Mhmmm...LS400, me being a nightshift worker meaning 4am drive home from work on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/New Duel carriageway A90 Northbound with no Speed cameras and no hidden places for mobile cameras. Yeah, I need to get that ol girl back on the road for another M6 Toll style speed run... For now, the Abarth averaging about 200 miles a tank is best i can do fuel wise... Admittedly back in 2015/16 when I'd used the LS400 as an everyday car, commuting from the city center of Aberdeen to the outskirts in evening rush hour (Night shit worker as i said) id get comically low MPG. Average of 17MPG was considered high for me then...
