  1. Money no object? Jensen FF or Mercedes 450 SEL 6.9 On a more practical budget I'd go the same deliberately anti-social old diesel barge route as a few have already mentioned.
  2. It's what the lights may well look like with the front element smashed, and just parts of the reflector remaining, or something as simple as an aftermarket part. Look at the shape of the wing at the front, the cutout matches perfectly.
  3. The shape of the chrome trim on the windscreen is clearly SD1; it's identical to the one that's for sale. I'm with High Jetter on this one.
  4. Unfortunately Trade Cars Cleckheaton (TCC) is one of those places to avoid like the plague. Chances are you'll get there and the car you're after isn't there, or if it is, it'll be buried behind fifteen other decaying carcasses, and the MOT is likely to be from one of those places where if the car can enter and exit under its own power, it gets a pass. Yes, I am speaking from personal experience.
  5. I would guess that's because they are mostly bought (new) by people that have no interest in or knowledge of cars other than as a means of getting from A to B, and once purchased are never serviced but just expected to work, like a kitchen appliance.
  6. Used to be a V8, but it's been converted to a tree cylinder... Slight engine fault; only running on tree cylinders
  7. Ah, my bad, misread your post slightly
  8. Please tell me it's this Leyland Martian... 😁 https://hmvf.co.uk/topic/36936-new-to-me-leyland-martian/
  9. ERF used Cummins engines in some of theirs.
  10. Fuel-water injection is a thing. I remember seeing adverts for it in car magazines in the late 70s and early 80s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_injection_(engine)
  11. Cheap as chips R53 https://www.shpock.com/en-gb/i/YQRvoH4W_lIyCTEb/2003-mini-cooper-s
  12. If you really need the space and don't care about the scrap money I'd just get someone with an appropriate vehicle to drag it onto the nearest public road (without damaging it of course) and then report it for being untaxed.
