  1. That car seems to live in or around Horley, I've seen it a few times. 186k on the clock and same owner since 1990.
  2. @Six-cylinder in his Motoring Notes thread
  3. Also on the A1, weird vents above the grille that make it look like the bonnet isn't quite closed.
  4. Another vote for words and pictures if possible, but I appreciate it's extra time that might be better spent working on the car!
  5. @DodgyBastard in the FOAD's Fleet thread
  6. And three door! And 1.3 engine! I need to win the lottery this week.
  7. That's a really good idea, have someone else with you (at a safe distance) purely to watch out for signs of fire so you can focus on the task in hand. Although a cup of tea might not be the most effective fire fighting equipment! 😉
  8. Talbot used that image for a brochure cover too. April 1980 brochure
  9. Vauxpedia has some images of the aborted CD van program, which was forward control: Vauxpedia page
  10. Although my local hospital charges between £3 and £12 normally, chemotherapy patients get free parking. Not sure if that extends to radiation therapy. Anyway, good luck with the treatment.
  11. I count myself lucky if a visit to the vet with my cat only costs £65. Last month I paid out over £300 for one visit.
  12. How much do you really need a lawn?
  13. As suggested by @N19 this photo that @Tommyboy12 posted in the Land's End to John O'Groats thread seems like a good start to this month's calendar thread. I've taken the liberty of cropping it at the sides.
  14. Excellent save! By chance I've scanned a brochure from the month this car was registered: This car isn't quite bottom of the range, the original owner could have saved £450 by specifying the 1.1 engine with 4 speed gearbox: (March 1988 price list)

  16. Looks like the second number plate is painted on. Maybe the owner tried the bumper-less look and didn't like it. A really excellent find.
  17. Having an estate car is very handy. Having an estate car about six inches longer would have been handier today.

  19. @Tommyboy12 in the Poverty Spec Montego thread. I particularly like this shot because it shows the 1.3 badge. On an estate. Which should not exist.
