  1. When I drove taxis a good few years ago the highest mileage one I drove was Peugeot 806 2.0hdi which had done 325000 miles when I left the firm. It was still going about a year later. Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk
  2. I remember my dad having one brand new back in the day, it was also k reg. I thought it was a sad day when he traded it in at 3 years old for a victor fe 1800. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  3. I owned a b plate 1.6gl 4 door in a lighter blue than that, and my brother had a 1.8sri hatch in gold on an a plate. He crashed it and replaced it with a d plate 1.8gli hatch in the same colour as this one. To be honest I preferred my own one over his 2, as I prefer the 4 door, and mine was pre facelift, which I also prefer. Out of his two I preferred his sri, also because it was pre facelift. However this one is some restoration and going to be better than new. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  4. Ruined a nice car. Take off all the body kit apart from the tailgate lip spoiler and lose the wheels then I might like it. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  5. My hilux ranks as one of the nicest drives I have owned. Big 3.0 diesel, smooth auto box, high driving position, comfy seat, the ride is a lot smoother than it should be, surprising turn of speed when overtaking is called for, well equipped, not even that noisy. The only poor thing is its physical size makes parking a bit awkward. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  6. That was true in the case of the 205. The guy took twice as many hours than he thought he would. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  7. I had the same problems getting someone to weld up my 205. Was let down on more than one occasion. A friend of my sons friend eventually did it at mates rates for me. I don't think he would be interested as he has nowhere to do it, he did mine outside on my drive. Anyway we are in Macduff which would be a bit away from you. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  8. The films are usually less than 10minutes long[emoji2960] Sent from my SM-A125F using Tapatalk
  9. Its registered in NE Scotland and it's a golf. Every panel would have been resprayed due to rust, probably at different times. So it might not be due a write off marker! Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  10. It was Hays of Huntly I worked for that ran the 505s. We did have a contract for school meals, I never did it but I think I it was from Auchterless to Fyvie. That was around 2000 to 2002. The 505s were all quite elderly by that time and were being replaced with transits, usually 12 seaters with 3 taken out so they could be driven on car licences. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  11. A bus firm I once worked for had a fleet of 505 estates for using as feeder cars picking school pupils up in country areas to meet the busses on the main roads. I liked driving them. I would bet that Zel would know which bus firm it was, as they would have been in his area. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  12. The weldathon is finished. 3 and 1/2 days welding by a guy who worked as a fabricator in a body shop for 25 years. Cost £240. Mates rates lol. Had I been paying labour rates at a garage I would say it would have been over a grand. Its getting a covering of red lead primer over all the new steel and welds then it will be left until my hand is in working order until further work will be done. The car was lost for long enough, another month or more wont make any difference! Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  13. It will keep getting saved though. That's it saved this year. And the xud will last forever! Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  14. Its nae a bad driving thing apart from the lowered suspension. I should think cos it's so solid and a new mot you should get £500. If someone was to buy at 500, run a year then scrap it at £250 it's cheap transport. Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
