  1. Wow! Three potentially cheap CX’s on ebay!, The best colour but poverty spec: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Citroen-cx-20-RE-1986-series-2/124393790330?hash=item1cf6729b7a:g:HKsAAOSwx9pfjFk4 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CITROEN-CX-GTI-TURBO-2/174484564490?hash=item28a0172a0a:g:MqYAAOSwSyBfjCvm https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Citroen-CX-22TRS-Spares-or-Repair/164456149709?hash=item264a59b2cd:g:s6wAAOSwNqBfjHpi So much temptation.
  2. I would love to have an SD1 but this looks incredibly grim even by my standards: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1982-classic-rover-vandes-plas-damaged/224195207611?hash=item34331361bb:g:JC0AAOSwfQlfiDhJ
  3. From what I saw you were clear it was not the best example, as CortinaDave said rust is par for the course with Cortina’s (their only failing)and this did not look anything like an original well cared for example! The fact you were less than impressed with it was a clear warning. That said the price was reasonable for what it is, the buyer is clearly a right Herbert. I would give him a grand and take it off his hands though if he wants rid of it (I’m good like that) there is nothing that cannot be put right.
  4. It is lowering the tone in your 20th century executive parking area 😀
  5. I hope this gets saved: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VERY-RARE-1982-MG-METRO-1300-PROJECT-NO-RESERVE-99P-START-MUST-GO-THIS-WEEK/203139058906?hash=item2f4c080cda:g:2sYAAOSwgoVfhfgU

  7. Is this referring to the driver or an inhabitant of the field? If the latter I hope it is ok. If it was the former by an upset farmer, then fair enough, I hope he wasn’t prosecuted.
  8. That looks lovely, in a great colour too, a great birthday present. I was not aware of these cars, it is very stylish compared to most cars from that period, well bought.
  9. I like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-p5B-3-5-V8-coupe-project/373268305025?hash=item56e8865481:g:y4MAAOSwBMhfg3DQ
  10. These are great cars but are they making two grand in this condition yet? Fair play to the seller for what seems an honest description and pictures. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-740-gle-Estate-1988/174476051088?hash=item289f954290:g:TUUAAOSwmoNfYhwb
  11. This looks quite amazing and not a silly start price, I wonder what it will sell at? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1948-Alfa-Romeo-6C2500S/284040754184?hash=item422225f408:g:e68AAOSw0KtfgYMx
  12. The garage with the Alvis in is the old dairy and barns attached to the side of the house. We took the whole front out and all internal walls down and rebuilt the front with two 4.3m openings for the double width doors. This garage is about 39 foot by 18 foot and will be my workshop. Attached to this are two 8 x 20 foot single garages (newly built). Opposite with the Granada in is the main garage which has two 4m door openings at the top and one at the side ( lower level) The top part where the Granada is will fit 5 cars in a row and will have another 5 on the upper level accessed via a 4 post
  13. What makes you think I ‘m a Ford licker?😆 I also have a Volvo here that you may like, purchased from Garethj of this Parish. Sadly not currently on the road, and needing some attention like the majority of the fleet. You would be very welcome here if you turn up in your Capri, it is stunning.
  14. This is very true, I had 8 cars at my last house and thought moving here would solve my storage issues. Instead I bought more cars and still want more! I specifically wanted an early 2.8GL, ideally I would have liked one in Oyster Gold with tan interior but they are very rare now. The originality of this and the blue interior made this irresistible. It is a very recent addition purchased just before lockdown. The gearbox has recently stopped working in reverse so I am hoping that an oil, filter and gasket change will cure this, fingers very much crossed! I would love to attend one
  15. Thanks, yes it is an early mk4 hence the tan roof which was not an option for long sadly. I also have an 82 model mk5 Ghia estate in Walnut brown but that is not in such nice condition! Below is another picture of the mk4 next to my Granada in the same garage:
