  1. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1202199 Have we had this Y10 GTie? Perhaps a bit pricey at £900, but ad claims it has a years MOT.
  2. I would say that they would love to see that photo at least, their shop retains a delightful old-world look to it so my guess is that they have some interest in their heritage at least. I come from a Dublin farming family too funnily enough. I'm guessing (given the Clondalkin connection) your father is a southsider - we're only poor northsiders.
  3. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1215814 Brown 924 project (with bonus 924 plate) for £500 This ought to keep someone busy during this lockdown..
  4. Great to see some Irish registrations among these excellent photos; thanks for sharing. Also, Freynes are still in business at the very same location as they would have been when the middle photo was taken.
  5. Shite spotting from a socially responsible distance:
  6. The building is Belcamp College in north County Dublin. It was sold for €100m fifteen years ago, and has only deteriorated since.
  7. Great idea for a thread. When all of this virus lockdown carry on is over and done with I must travel home and take a look through some old family photo albums for suitable content. As it happens though, I recently came across this photo of a great granduncle of my mother. There is nothing particularly special or noteworthy about the car or the photo, but I had no real reason to post it until now. Quality is rubbish, its from a pamphlet that I scanned and tried to enlarge. The man behind the wheel was born in 1892 and lived til 1985. Photo was taken in 1924 and the car is a Willys Overland Whippet, that lasted until the War. The building in the background looks like this today:
  8. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1205203 2.0 Executive Laguna with MOT til June for £275
  9. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C698379 Not a Suzuki Swift, but a Solectria Force EV - for £500 And it works! (sort of)
  10. https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/austin-devon/24547760 I really quite like the look of this old thing. Not a bad price either at 2 bags.
  11. I think that might possibly just be water. There is soapy water on the front bumper in the second picture.
  12. https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/rover-213s/24540627 Nice looking little UK registered 213S in the south of Ireland, reasonably priced perhaps at €1300? 31k miles claimed. No MOT since 2008 however!
  13. Have we had this Camry estate? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Toyota-Camry-GLI-Auto-Estate/372982143003? £995 with a years MOT seems reasonable to my mind.
  14. https://www.donedeal.ie/vintagecars-for-sale/1990-toyota-starlet-van/24432873?campaign=3 A tidy little Starlet van in Ireland. I would love one of these.
