  1. This is spectacular! I can’t believe it’s nearly done. If I ever need a car restoring, I know where I’d take it
  2. I think these are actually a ‘thing’, though admittedly mostly in America. Some don’t look too bad
  3. For aerosols that looks like it’s Given a really good result. Please tell your friend that a stranger on the internet thinks his 121 looks cool
  4. I have never owned a Metro, nor have my parents or any of my close relatives to the best of my knowledge. But something about the photos of that car and the condition it’s in seem familiar, and make me feel strangely nostalgic for a time when Metros that looked exactly like that were everywhere. Seeing it and knowing that examples like that are still out there, parked outside of the sort of ordinary, suburban houses in the Midlands that filled my childhood is comforting in a way I can’t quite put into words. Watchlisted.
  5. I hadn’t realised until now just how well T4s seem to have held their value. There’s a lot of really worn out high mileage stuff making what seems like very strong money to me. Volkswagen seemed to offer them in a lot of nice interesting colours though. Is parts supply an issue with Previas/Estimas? There’s far more of those for sale than I would have guessed
  6. I think there are a few in the UK; every few months one gets posted to the eBay thread. They seem to be worth about the same, but normally a little bit less than a similar Euro car. I bet finding parts is a nightmare though Edit: here’s one! I can remember there being a tidier MOT’d estate for sale in the summer as well, which made about a grand. Presumably there’s others too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1986-Ford-Escort-EXP/274535508736?hash=item3feb976b00:g:wjgAAOSwrmRfiIQ~#vi__app-cvip-panel
  7. It took me a moment to notice the red paint added to the seats. It's genuinely a little disturbing
  8. I can remember you getting that launch 75! It was about the time I'd found out about this place, and reading about it sparked an interest in me for 75s. I'd love a nice early one just like yours, with them lovely personal line seats.
  9. This has made the rounds in the Mini Facebook groups a few times: he wanted £9000 to start with
  10. @SchaefftYou're the expert on these aren't you? Have you seen this one yet? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1363373780661374
  11. Mildly irritated Max https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1938663832976268
  12. £1750, with an MOT until November. Should be exempt next year https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/425518945286068 And obviously, as you can't post one of these without also posting a photo of the interior:
  13. Nice video! I'd always assumed these show cars were cherished since they costs so much to build. Are most like this up close? The inside is great though! I wish more cars came with interesting interiors like that in colours other than black and grey.
  14. The one that messes with my head most is the idea that for a short time, the Renault 5 and Morris Minor were both being sold as new cars. Renault have been really ahead of the game design wise a lot, and don’t seem to get the credit they deserve for it
