  1. Spotted this in Ruislip in summer! Had a fantastic steering wheel cover then, mind.

    Pride & Joy

    Thank you for the comments, everyone! Make no mistake, it'll be at FOTU. I attended my first this year and, well, I can't see myself missing one by choice. Very much so! Picks up speed incredibly well, and sits very comfortably at 70 on the motorway as I found out when I moved from Surrey to North Yorkshire recently. The bouncy suspension really makes the ride. Could've well done! It was sold brand new in Derbyshire and there is a photo hanging about somewhere on Flickr when it was spotted near Church Gresley in 2014. It lived nearer to Brum when I bought it. The paint is in decent nick from a fair distance, with some minor marks and scratches on the roof. I've recently attacked some rust on the rear arches and resprayed both arches/sill ends in Rover's Kingfisher, which is relatively close - but it's better than looking at rust. Interior is immaculate. It'll be a while before the wallet permits that 😄 First job is to attack the awful respray on the front bumper and reinstate the red pinstripe.

    Pride & Joy

    Hello there. It's come to my attention that I haven't been very active on here since acquiring my latest car, and I thought you lot may like some pictures. Here's my 1993 Kia Pride 1.3 LX, 1 of 26 remaining MK1s, and mine's in the lovely Kingfisher Blue. I came into her through a Facebook car spotting page; the previous owner posted after pulling her out of a garage where she'd been laid up since 2015. An intended spares car for a 121 he had at the time, though he remarked it was far too tidy for such a purpose. Some work was required for the MOT and she's undergone a pretty comprehensive service but I've had 1,000 miles of joy over the past month so far! Lovely to add to the variety of cars on here and be part of it all.
  4. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1078809 This thing's been for sale forever at £450. Now it's £2,500. ?
  5. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/258019938150537 Don't care if it's been on before 'cause you're getting it again. £800, Witham in Essex.

  7. All on my doorstep, thought I recognised the Waitrose car park. Small world. And I know where that red Escort lives near New Haw. Looks like St. Peters there?
  8. That is, that's their reg!
  9. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-fiesta-Mk-3/173689751094?hash=item2870b74636:g:XasAAOSwG25cEoaY:rk:7:pf:0 Blue one's £450, with reference to the infamous "will shoot through an MOT but I'm not going to do it myself". I love the look of it. Red one's £350, no MOT since May, had some advisories and probably couldn't look any worse if it tried. £700 for both! Creative.
  10. The only issue I've got with some of these so-called purists that think anything remotely rare is valuable. "My mate's son wanted to modify it, so I bought it off him for a pittance, gave it some basic maintenance and whacked it on eBay at the highest possible price." What a hero...?
  11. Korean shite, in turquoise. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1084719798364264/?ref=messenger_share > Leather > Wood > Correctly transmissioned Perfect, no? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/322026635202979/?ref=messenger_share Early for one of these. Looks real nice.
  12. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1753971391368350 I really like these! £1,200 looked dead cheap, but when you see that the MOT history flicks from 205k to 60k in 2014, especially when the owner's trying to palm it off as if it's got 68k...
  13. Even an EG Civic this clean would be up for more than £950. Such a good thread.
  14. It only lets me click "Like This" once, but I wanna give it about ten more. In sheer love.
  15. Posted this on the previous page, but we need it on here as much as possible! I need it to go to a shiter so I can have it in a few months!
