  1. That's a shame. I always liked seeing that around Ipswich. I doubt it will happen, but it would be nice if he was able to carry on with it.
  2. It's a Senator, which is even worse in my books. Still one of my favourite car chases in any movie because of the amount of shite in it though. They even managed to get a bug-eye Scorpio in as a police car beforehand, which was a surprise when I first saw it.
  3. That's a shame. It was well put together and packed full of the kind of cars that everyone on here loved; what other magazine would have had a group test with a Rover R8, Mk5 Escort and Renault 19 Chamade just pages away from a Peugeot 405 vs Renault 21 article. You could just tell it was something created by people who were passionate about the cars.
  4. Just caught up with this, nice work with it so far. Would have expected it to be tricky to get NOS wheel trims, so you've done well to find them. Having driven it and been chauffered by PBK a few times I know it is very comfortable and a nice car to drive. Despite being a 75 guy, an early 45 is probably a better bet as an everyday car. You get the same seats, a large boot and a decent amount of wood trim, but without the fragility which you are starting to see with 75s now.
  5. If you phone up a Vauxhall dealer, they should be able to get it within a few seconds, if it is original to the car.
  6. I am scheduled to be working that day, but will try to get it booked off for this year's show. The last two have been brilliant, so I will try to go along to it again.
  7. 6 months MOT and only two bids so far on this Maestro van, which appears to have been owned by a shite hero. "Was used Daily for work. Only selling due to ULEZ charge" https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Austin-Rover-Maestro-Van-700-Rare-Petrol/143509906489?hash=item2169db6439:g:EQEAAOSw2kleJH0y
  8. Yes, everyone knows 90s Escorts are shit, but the seats in this Ghia estate more than make up for it in my opinion. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Escort-Classic-Estate-1994-Ghia/223885654752?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20171012094517%26meid%3D8fc91d71801d47e4add68d8e67bf4135%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D293444737953%26itm%3D223885654752%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219
  9. Very low mileage pre-facelift Vectra in Staines. Currently £235, with about 18 hours to go on the auction. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Vectra-LS-2-0-16v-1998-VERY-LOW-MILEAGE/293444737953?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20171012094517%26meid%3D01592f4363d9470cb677f6cf58e7a71c%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D124067476353%26itm%3D293444737953%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219
  10. I won't either, but please keep us updated on the shite going through.
  11. Sounds good and glad things are going along. I am free some weekends this month, so may be able to nip down and help out with getting the stuff out of the car.
  12. Nah, it wasn't that bad. Unfortunately the head gasket let go not long after getting it, but it was still a very nice barge and came in rather useful for a few weeks when some renovation work was going on. It was probably up there with the Safrane in terms of comfortable velour seats, however it wouldn't have been an economically viable repair. After that, I sold it to some "members of the travelling community" who I believe used the gearbox out of it to rescue another Omega, so it did have a happy-ish ending. And I kept the leather wallet for keeping some of the invoices safe for one of
  13. It's normally painful enough blindly purchasing a poorly photographed car bought blind off the internet when it is nearby; but having to go all the way to Portugal to drive back in a Renault 9 on the basis of these would take it to an all new level. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1170300 Still tempting for £475
  14. Another one for those who like to gamble, this late Mk2 Mondeo ticks all the right boxes. Ghia X, 2.5 V6, estate, but only with a few weeks MOT. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201911184482451?year-to=2000&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&price-to=1000&advertising-location=at_cars&sort=price-asc&year-from=1995&model=MONDEO&radius=1500&postcode=ip142aa&make=FORD&page=1&modal=photos
