  1. It's been a while, so just in case you was wondering about one of the ex forum bikes... It's still chewing the tarmac. If Carlsberg made cars... Probably the best car I've ever owned.
  2. What we haven't had yet though is that with those estates, you can pull out the rear washer jet and direct the water onto the car behind. Shirley worth buying just for that comedy value?
  3. 1983 Mk1 Fiat Strada 105TC, Black, Genuine 28k low mileage UK car. | eBay Yes. That is all.
  4. 1987 jaguar xj40 custom modified airlift air ride | eBay Vegan Jag on balloon gas. That's something that I never thought I'd say.
  5. Years ago i went to look at an XR2 one of my pals was told about. It was cheap. It was also at the end of a breakers yard and none of the staff wanted to go up to it. We immediately discovered that someone had topped themselves in it and hadn't been found for 'a while'. We looked through the windows, but i could smell it even through them. My pal didn't buy it.
  6. I don't care who you are, herbies always look cool.
  7. I didn't get out there today because I had to do stupid work stuff, like that comes first ... I really need to work on prioritising.
  8. Met this fella this morning. I felt like a tourist but when a Rovextra enters your life, it's a special moment. Why daily anything else? Complete with arooga horn, absolutely made my day.
  9. I used to have one of these with exactly the same issues as yours. Welcome to the world of 'not worrying about the weather in winter'!
  10. It has a floor change gearstick. The box is still in it. This is certainly going in the bin to make way for progress* but it will be hanging around until next summer at least. All parts free to a good home. I found a rather chunky hinge which makes me think of a tailgate of some sort. Theres a lack in the volume of metal so i am assuming a pick up.
  11. I will try and get some anti tetanus gloves on and reshape it tomorrow, maybe get some better pictures too It has a steel panel grill. It looks like someone in a JCB has played golf with it as its a bit bent and things like the wiper arms are bent over which wouldn't happen naturally. Although its head is missing, i had to sniff the oil which smells like a well established engineering factory with a slightly blocked toilet facility. Once I get it running I'm going to drive it 4965 miles home. Although I'm only 20 minutes down the road. If you liked that mystery car challenge*, I have a level 6 for yous tomorrow! I know that one is there though but need to take pics before the earth reclaims it.
  12. I would like to see if I can get the hooters working again. She has massive hooters.
  13. Awesome speed of identifying skillz! I think we have a commercial, as there are the newly discovered remains of a pressed panel front grill, and we've only found 2 doors. I was thinking of selling those on the bay as decorative items. Will be searching for the glovebox remains soon to see if there is the remains remaining of the V5. They'd look noice hanging in someone's bathroom I reckon.
  14. We literally just found this. I've had a look over it and she's in a bad way. There's not much left in the way of distinguishing details and I suspect it's had a lot of work* carried out on the lower body as there is a massive aluminium panel bolted across the front. We found the doors not so far away. I reckon its a European 6 volt thing converted over to 12. I am fully expecting this to be immediately identified. I can go back into the jungle though and try find some key features that might remain. Winner gets to collect it, bring a bucket.
  15. 4 scayle, manny fagnet, only 213£ seen tax added.
  16. It's been flipped for 15 hunnit .. how? Never mind, I'm gonna pull £7 out of this...
  17. Cheers. Car just sold. I just need £35,000....
  18. Well, i bought this and immediately put it up for sale for pro$$it. Now i can't even work, which doesn't matter because my used car emporium is about to take off!
  19. That is Elton's Bentley with Alpine system wedged in there. Wood. (not Elton, the car). I am going back here as soon as I can. Price breakdown: 3 car drive and museum entry for 2 adults and a kid, a night stay in a rather risky Premiere inn with breakfast chucked in, £200 + fuel and a dinner. That aint bad. Can't big this place up enough, it's the most enjoyable fun I've had of recent times and thanks Sam, great guy. https://www.drivedadscar.com/
