  1. @rob88h Ooof factor high. If I was looking for a project this’d be the one! I’m trying to stay strong and get some of my rammle on the road instead of anything new. can someone please bring this into the fold. I feel I’ve contributed my services to early Sierra populations with the rescue of the DieseL last year. Very similar reg:
  2. It's be rude not at add a Christmas themed one to December 😉
  3. Snap! Good to see this one is still bumbling about. I met the owner once; nice lady, committed to keeping it going.
  4. I think the fact that it’s not even on straight just adds to the look. 😂
  5. I have no words https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1376209509450743/ I’ve always thought a fun project would be to buy something like this and de-twatify it, returning it to stock as best I can.
  6. Proper rubbish photo, but it’s more the fact that since getting the car 9 years ago (Volvo 440) I finally have heater control lighting! It’s amazing the things you learn to live with that are just one simple job away from being fixed…
  7. Certified 57.2% AutoShite I’m a sad bastard. At the beginning of 2022 I wrote down all my mileages and checked them all again at the end of the year, also ensuring I recorded the mileages in all the In-and-Out cars I’ve had this year… “Wait, I do that” I hear some of you say, but the geekery deepens here as armed with these numbers I have normalised them into a ratio of how much I’ve used each car…, then assigned a subjective AutoShite Factor to each car of between 0 and 1, where 0 would be chauffer driven ’22 Range Rover and 1 would be @BorniteIdentity’s Sierra. Multiplying the driven ratio through the AutoShite factor gives me a score per car and summing the scores gives me a total out of a maximum of 100 (100% of my miles in an AutoShite Factor 1 jalopy). I’m 57.2% Autoshite. Must try harder for 2023.
  8. 2023 is off to a blinding start. Two of the fleet have secured MOT's lasting into 2024! Satisfying.
  9. Is it whatever is on my Christmas present socks? 😉
  10. This thing was destined to be an AutoShite from the day it was born. I love seeing cars that have ripened into their ultimate form in circumstance. Astra Automatic with Wob in the reg. 😍 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/275587550770?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=Cta9v_MFSQG&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=Nh_mcoTOQvi&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  11. This gets referred to as “Nob Easy” around here. And this one got an age related issue “PUB” as the GFS Edinburgh reg lost its paperwork. Naturally it shall become the pub bike (when it runs…) Neither are private but had to contribute summat 🤷‍♂️
  12. Well, the snow’s gone but I got some more nice A_WOV 2022 pictures for reminding me of the good times before someone no doubt has to tear into it for welding. To be honest I think the rain is worse. The wet gets everywhere (including 2” deep in the footwells, see above). At least with snow it seemed to stay dry.
  13. Mr Hopkirk would confirm. I took the Mini to see Santa. It asked for some welding, some wax and a warm garage.
  14. We all love cars, yet a common trend at this time of year is the wish for fewer (outwardly at least, grounded in practicality usually, despite our deepest inner thoughts being to have all the cars). This year I have actually managed it! -1 car. Out: A4 Avant. B3? I can’t remember now, I briefly got into the VAG diesel world but soon moved on. It was a very capable car; all the car you’d need, but a bit grey soulless and dull despite its front/back engine FWD setup curiosity. Non-Movers (figurative) Mini, 440 and Focus. All have experienced substantial decay I feel, but are still hanging around. Non-Movers (literal) MX-5 and Granada (and a Buzz [collective Noun] of Raleigh Runabouts). It’s an older photo of the Mazda as it’s so buried now in garage junk! Oops. In and Out Sierra DieseL. A fairly substantial recommission job which was satisfying to have achieved and followed up by taking it to a couple of shows. I’ve a soft spot for this car and remember it fondly. Rover 45. I had no right getting this attached to my Rail Replacement Rover, bought to bring me, my mate and our bikes back from John O’Groats for the price of a train ticket. It was “nice” but had its problems. @MrDuke took over. Daewoo Leganza. Another of life’s curveballs. I was pleased to have a go on this and help lengthen it’s life a bit but shifted it on to @Erebus at cost less some Mars bars. Here’s to 2023.
