  9. First car MK3 escort A plate, got it at 6 yrs old to the day, 99k miles, already been resprayed once and needed doing again. Ran it for almost 2 years and px for an Astra, when salesman asked me how much I wanted I told him £800 which was really cheeky as it had holes in the wings and the gearbox was knackered, salesman said in condescending manner "no need to through it away cos your bored of it sonny" and offered £1200, hands shaken, collected a couple of days later, as I was signing the paperwork the garage owner gave the keys to my escort to one of his staff to take home for the night, sitting there while he filled in the paperwork I could see the lad desperately trying to find first and keep reversing inch by inch towards the showroom window. Next morning got a call from the furious garage owner demanding I bring his car back as I had misled them over the condition of my p/x, my dad took the phone and told them to get bent... Was taxed for another 6 months then I assume it got bridged... Lol Sent from my Moto G (5) using Tapatalk

  11. My Dad had one of the last 2litre pinto Ghia Estates as a company car, his boss was a right tight git and he had it for about 10 years and had done about 235k. By which point it was utterly knackered. I got to drive it a few times in my late teens, and a number of time I almost spun it, due to forgetting RWD.. Sent from my Moto G (5) using Tapatalk

  13. I also have a steep driveway sloping toward the house. Early one morning I was awakened to the sound of what I assumed to be next doors trailer brakes being released, thinking it was an odd time to move a trailer I peered through the curtains to see my car bumping down the driveway winding the engine over as it went following the handbrake cable snapping. I'd thrown some trousers left by the bed on, managed to get the key in the door open it and get the footbrake in, about 20cm before it went through the garage door...

  15. J plate cavalier 1,7td GLS J681NSW owned from 94-2k and p/x'd with a cracked head for a 98 Passat 110 which I sold 2 years later and lost 6k.. Also miss my A6 Avant 2.4 Multitronic X194BFJ which I bought from auction at 5 yrs old for 4,5k ran for 2 years and sold for 3750. Finally miss my 306 glx xud9te P514OLN which I bought from a mate for 300 with 250k on the click, put another 35k on it in a year on bio and got 1200 from insurance when someone went into the back of it, it continued to live for another 18m after being collected by a breakers who clocked it to 70k and sold it on...

  23. When I built a kit car many years ago I put the calipers back on the wrong sides which meant the bleed nipple was below the input pipe, impossible to bleed, took ages to figure it out... Sent from my Moto G (5) using Tapatalk
