  1. Hey, I'm really sorry to hear this. I met Spart when lending him my A-frame a few years back and he was a total gent, it was one of those cheering 'internet person becomes real person' encounters that really gives your faith in fellow humans a boost. RIP Spart.
  2. I've just been moderated for a post a week or two back, I think it was one where I was rude about 'lest we forgetters' and I made a comment about their attitude to Brexit. Anyway the post has been reported for being political, then judged too offensive and thus banished to Autoshite Mantua. If theres one thing I absolutely fucking hate it's being treated like a naughty 8 yr old (I'm well into middle age) , so, I'm off. Yes i know I know, 'its not an airport' etc etc but if anyone wants to get in touch about anything in future just ping me on FB, plenty of shiters know me on there e.g. wob
  3. I don't think I would have put up with that nonsense for a fortnight. "Look, are we doing a deal or not? Come on I need to know one way or the other."
  4. I'd love to drive one of these now. I suspect they are probably close to the perfect 'fun but manageable' driving experience. Fairly small, rwd, lively engine, decent rack-and-pinion steering and a slick gearchange, what more could you ask? Avengers failed on their shite sloppy steering and Marinas on their crap suspension, only the Escort got the whole package spot on. I'm no ford fanboi but I can see why whese appeal.
  5. Looks a very nice job to me. No alloy window winders/headlamp peaks/pissing on a BMW logo sticker either. Just a Mini, but better
  6. That 214SEi has sold already!!! Not surprising really
  7. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-214-SEI-1995-Nightfire-Red-Rare/114676794785 On the other hand check out this beauty, 62k, gaskets and belts done, £600 BIN!!!! Now thats a bargain!!!
  8. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1995-Rover-214i-LHD-1-4-petrol-manual/303880903401 An 8v poverty spec R8. Left hand drive. On German plates. And you have to go to friggin cornwall to pick it up!!!!! Looks in good nick mind. I'd love it!!!
  9. That seller has some right scrap, he had a Nissan Cherry Europe on there a few weeks back
  10. Hows this for some late plate madness? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2007-ROVER-45-CLUB-SALOON-ONLY-67K-MILES-ONE-OF-THE-LAST-ROVERS/114673537707 These looked so miserable by the end eh, this looks like a 90's Hyundai or something
  11. He was driving it up and down to the French alps though!!!!! I'm surprised he got a year out of it TBH
  12. I used to be absolutely mad keen on those Ambassadors. Now I hate them!!! Miserable interiors, asthmatic thrashy engines and a crap gearbox. Still like the wedge shape though and I would like to drive one with regassed spheres and new tyres, I reckon it would be a whole 'new sensation' in ride quality
  13. That is indeed a glorious scene! Fantastic. I wonder what else is buried in the undergrowth!!!
  14. What happened with your brake failure? Did the pedal go to the floor? Or did it feel OK, but just have no effect on stopping the car?
  15. Rover 45, pretty unremarkable right? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/117483936832106/ WRONG!!!! Mega rare Aubergine cloth Personal Line interior!!!!
  16. I bet my friend @FM155 will like that
  17. Just dropping in to say that this old bus looks fantastic. Great colour and just looks 'right'. I would defo crick my neck to get a better look, if this came past me. I often drive past one of these on my regular trips to Wickes to buy DIY crap, its got all the usual shit chucked all over it - black bonnet, spacky wheels, and the obligatory stickers about Transformers, #vanlife, "Its a Volkswagen thing, you wouldnt understand" and so on. The guy lives in Sutton in Ashfield FFS
  18. I'd say the internet has made life a lot easier here. Theres always been any amount of penniless armchair dealers (I reckon i was one when i was about 19) and clueless bullshitters. Now you can just filter them out easily without having to speak to them in person, or worse, have them coming round your house and/or wasting your time waiting for them not to turn up.
  19. Wow!!! I was about to get sniffy because of the painted bumpers, but I just clicked through and I must say, that is MEGA. Seems like a right old BWARG as well for 650 groat.
  20. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LDV-400-Campervan-PROJECT/124548763163 Bet this is a hoot to drive!!!
  21. This hopeless shit heap is still going round and round on there, now its down to £400, I'd have thought it would weigh in for more than that https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Leyland-Roadrunner-1987/124553164316
  22. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mazda-MX-5-eunos/154313046931 oh yeah looks like it!!
  23. wow, well done for getting that sorted, it seems like the sort of problem that would get stuck in a DVLA wormhole forever!!!!
  24. This would be a fantastic and very picturesque addition to anyone's driveway: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bedford-midi-van-1986/143934759927 Column shift too!!!! WOULD
