  1. its my birthday, and its been crap. Missus is in Aberdeen which is now back in lockdown so I got a short and very cold facebook message last night saying she wasn't a rule breaker so id have to have my birthday some other time. She hasn't even phoned today. Supposed to be off work but got called in because theres been an Internet meltdown and when I went to get in the car I saw a huge nail in my front tyre. Worst birthday ever.
  2. Thanks very much to DodgyBastard for the louver and a shot of the Cortina (and his Niva) which has fired me up to actually get my mk4 back on the road. Having driven it, I have to say it was a bloody good deal at 1500 quid.
  3. Spoiler is rare/worth money if you're taking it off.
  4. Nice! A steal at 1500 quid. They all need welding, and it'll look tons better with all the crap removed (although I like the window louver!)
  5. Wasnt expecting this on facebook marketplace
  6. Haha! Nae roadshows out at the moment sadly. What you really want as a shiter is a TayFM roadshow... on the rare occasion they go out these days it's in an E reg Mercedes truck... as its only ever been a radio roadshow truck it's got crazy low miles. Last time I saw it when i worked there it was painted dayglow yellow 😂
  7. I was briefly an auction driver in about 1998 at Kinross. Some cars were like old friends, coming back week in week out. My job was to run the car through, wait while it sold, then drive it out of the auction hall and round the corner to the storage yard. You were told not to go higher than 2nd gear and to do your best to disguise faults. One night I had command of a very tidy B plate Golf GTi and after it sold I couldn't resist giving it a bit of welly round to the storage compound. It was at that point t I realised it had no brakes whatsoever and I watched in what seemed like slow motion as the guy whose job it was to guide me into the car's allocated space disappeared under my front bumper. Thankfully he was fine but that was my last night working for them!
  8. It did seem to get a about a fair bit. I remember seeing it twice parked at the kingdom centre in glenrothes (why he wanted to drive a 70 mile round trip over from edinburgh to what is a thoroughly bleak shopping centre I've no idea)
  9. What?? Aberdeenshire is BRILLIANT for autoshite. All of these are within 10min walking distance of my girlfriends house in Culter(bar the 2 moss covered oxfords, but they are only 5 miles away) I see loads of autoshite up here, you're not looking hard enough
  10. Had one of these for a bit around 2006. NWR641A. Really lovely things and actually drive very well given how old they are. Swapped it for a Cresta PB !
  11. it sits a couple of cars away from the equally unused midget so i assume its the same owner, who just likes to look at them from his kitchen window!
  12. Yep. My mrs and wee girl live here so I locked down with them rather than being on my own in fife
