  1. Villefranche-sur-mer! My dad had a small 27ft Bennetteau first in the older part of the harbour there about 8yrs ago. When I went down to visit him he had to steal a half-deflated rib as a tender. When we reached his boat, we found out that someone had stolen a load of stuff from it and vandalised the toilet causing a terminal leak. There was about a foot of water inside the cabin. Really beautiful spot. Great pics and great trip, thanks for sharing
  2. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/155182895957 Automatic, 2.3 petrol transit with LPG. Who in the name of fuck specd that new?
  3. Sexy, off brand, vegetable eating wagon with full MOT for £650 in god's own urinal, Middlesbrough. https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1508134

  6. I thought 'holy fuck' in the title might have been a bit dramatic until I saw the Bentley but now it seems understated. Superb + ballsy purchase. God speed
  7. Title should be changed to: Tickman's superior motoring choices You need a luxurious cruiser now to round off the fleet. Something you can leave at home permanently whilst deciding to drive your 205 or your Honda.
  8. Lexus sc430 from wish.com. Also known as the Camry Solara
  9. Serbian Peugeot buyout complete. This baby is all mine. I don't even really fit in it because of the sunroof
  10. We cleared the codes last night and the codes came back on after giving it some throttle. The knock sensors have a common ground so it's possibly that. O2 sensor and clear the codes sounds like a good shout. No hunting at idle so it's possibly not a vacuum leak
  11. Insight = sold Mystery car = almost sold Visa = for sell or scrap Got a letter from the factors saying they're aware of my all consuming SORNed shite collection in the car park. I think now's the time to expel my surplus chod more for my own sake than anyone else's though. Check it out anyway - Did some basic EML diagnosing with the pre-OBD Lexus last night. You bridge 2 connections in the fuse box, slap it in neutral and then count the number of EML flashes. 21 - main oxygen sensor left bank 52 - #1 knock sensor signal 55 - #2 knock sensor signal I reckon it's running at about 85% power now, up from 60% before the cat flange fix. I'm hoping sorting this in the distant future will bring me up to 100%. Also sounds like EML is not part of the MOT in January. Bonus photo of me trying to jimmy open the door unsuccessfully
  12. My missus deals with these surprisingly regularity at work: You have an at fault crash in a moderately valuable classic that's MOT exempt but has undeclared mods. The insurer sends an engineer out to inspect and determines your insurance wasn't valid because of the mods. Insurer pays out and then they come after you for all the costs. It's called 'assignment and agreement' if I remember correctly. You only need to crash once and you're suddenly poor/taking the bus.
  13. House looks class btw. Your investment in narrow-hipped 70s cars is all making sense now with UK garages
