  1. The first thing that springs to mind is the L/H and R/H drive dash holes in the SD1, with the spare hole filled with a vent.
  2. Sounds like my kind of camping neighbour…
  3. Amazing effort, well done. How did the Palomar hold up?
  4. Oof. I love these. Good luck and looking forward to updates!
  5. Keeping my fingers crossed that you’ve bought a Maybach with a Perkins diesel conversion. Or a 3 wheeler Maestro.
  6. Bonus points for a proper Laahndan-sounding plate
  7. Have we had this yet? And is it a taxi version? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ford-granada-mk2-2-1D-/284715982447?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  8. @PrinceRupertprobably a bit too far for you, and you have your trusted local, but Surrey Jag Centre (now in Redhill) are good ‘uns.
  9. Fit for making into roads maybe, rather than running on them?
  10. Years and years ago I advertised my XJR on eBay. I think it was very fairly priced at £5.5k. Not crazy, but it was low mileage, full history, pretty perfect. I was expecting to get around 5 for it. This guy starts messaging me with some fairly generic questions, but seems keen. His opening offer? £750.
  11. Exactly. What about all those first gen X5s parked on communal grass areas in council estates?
  12. This brings back so many memories of an almost identical brand new LX in our family. Such a great design IMO. Your work on this is astonishing.
  13. There’s some nice attention to detail in the back of this, by the looks of it. Extra grab handles for the middle row, ashtrays, and electric windows at the very back? Also are those reading lamps in the c posts?
  14. Amazing the Fiesta and it’s reg haven’t been flogged long ago.
  15. Looking forward to this. I’m guessing velour seats, no wood, manual?
  16. Could you not launch a museum of specially adapted vehicles to recoup some costs? The campervan, Invacar, Polo and now this stretched Mercedes will bring in thousands* of visitors. Seriously though, I’d love to read your methodical posts about saving this. Even if you repaired the dash and ignition and got it weathertight and running well, it’d be amazing.
  17. Brand new Skoda Octavia vRS, back when they first launched. Couldn’t believe my luck.
  18. I’m not sure this has aged well, on here at least.
