  1. I won't either, but please keep us updated on the shite going through.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 dad's other Omegas
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Although not the best Acclaim in the world, this looks reasonable enough. Having had quite a bit of work done on it recently and an MOT until next summer, it could be an interesting purchase for someone here. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1982-triumph-acclaim-good-runner-long-MOT-honda-ballade-or-civic-mk2-classic-car/223758937425?hash=item3419126d51:g:ENMAAOSwglld1T3e
  7. If you feel brave, you could take on this 235k Laguna. No MOT, but it might appeal to the kind of individual who likes low spec cars and high mileage Renaults. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201911084161933?advertising-location=at_cars&year-to=2000&postcode=ip142aa&price-to=1000&sort=price-asc&radius=1500&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&year-from=1995&page=1
  8. Mk2 Astra CD with a year's MOT. Currently £400. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-Astra-CD-2-0l-1990/133245146569?hash=item1f060795c9:g:9agAAOSwT~Nd0vRZ
  9. Either works we me at the moment, but definitely up for this. It's unlikely to ever be easier for me to get to than this, so I haven't got any excuse in not making it. Plus I have never been to the transport museum, so it's the perfect excuse to finally go there.
  10. Not sure how this hasn't made it on here, but this Renault 5 looks like a bargain for £500 (even though the front windows don't work) https://www.gumtree.com/p/renault/renault-5-1165cc-1985-5-door/1352475125
  11. We knew it was going to happen, but the ULEZ is starting to kill off old shite, such as this A6. Poverty spec, 217k and has a fucking huge hole in the wing, but could a half decent WBOD for someone fortunate enough not to live in London. https://www.gumtree.com/p/audi/audi-a6.-1995.-estate-7-seater/1354465191
  12. Late pre-facelift Cavalier with rear arches made out of filler and Halfords spray paint. Tempting nonetheless. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/183978735766?_trksid=p2387834.m570.l5997&_trkparms=gh1g%3DI183978735766.N34.S2.R6.TR6
  13. Sunny estate in Dartford with a fresh MOT. Already got 14 bids on it with just under six days to go, so has attracted a fair bit of interest (understandable though). https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1986-Nissan-Sunny-Estate-1-5-Good-Condition-12-months-MOT-classic/123929863083?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D4ae6aa9bde064b15b97aff8487a7cd88%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dco%26sd%3D264488616370%26itm%3D123929863083%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  14. Tatty Allegro in dark beige, with a brown interior. This is without a shadow of doubt "Autoshite" personified. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Austin-Allegro-1300-Super/323939931758?hash=item4b6c53166e:g:o~kAAOSwtUFdmjkd
