  1. Well, I'm not planning on any more purchases before the year is out, so let's review... Out: 2013 Fiat Panda - my daily driver, I actually really liked it. Utilitarian charm and pretty decent economy and reliability to boot. Not the most comfortable on long commutes however, and the 60-mile round trip to the office really needed something a bit more refined. Or so I thought... Sold: March 2020. In: 2017 Skoda Fabia - the Panda's replacement, big car refinement in a small package. Yes, it's a modern, and yes it's VAG, but I rather liked it. Perfect for the long commute... which ce
  2. Slightly b0rked Civic Shuttle, anyone? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HONDA-Civic-Shuttle-1400cc-Auto-for-spares-or/143862228145?hash=item217edb64b1:g:Gl0AAOSwsgtfvkSH
  3. A P12 Primera wagon would be a spacious and reliable choice... shop around and they come in some surprisingly good specs too, some even have reverse cameras (which considering it's an early to mid 2000s car, is actually quite novel!). A Mitsubishi Lancer estate would do the job. I mean, literally that's all it would do. The job. Nothing more, nothing less. Generic, but also very competent. A great choice if excitement isn't a factor, and surprisingly cheap for a good one. Sorry for your loss, by the way,
  4. But then again, you'd have no reason to know it. Not knowing anything of modern motoring is kinda your shtick, and why we watch.
  5. Another Jaaaaaag. Short MOT but seems like a good price? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202011236395959?sort=distance&advertising-location=at_cars&year-to=1995&price-to=1000&radius=1500&postcode=cv100nr&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&page=1
  6. An R19 is on the "one day" list. Alas, I strongly suspect that this one won't stay cheap... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Renault-19/233790980132
  7. Took the Rover out for a supply run earlier (an essential journey... perhaps somewhat offset by the non essential journey I made in the MX-5 to the unit where the Rover is kept!), first proper drive since I adjusted the clutch last week. Feels so, SO much better to drive! And when I was filling it up, I got my first "don't see many of those now!" comment.
  8. Excellent purchase!
  9. "Got left on the drive when I got a company car" ... that doesn't explain how it got attacked by a gang of toddlers with a can of primer.
  10. Looks straight, but a bit £much perhaps? Especially since the rabbit isn't included. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202011116028760?sort=distance&include-delivery-option=on&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&year-to=1995&advertising-location=at_cars&radius=1500&postcode=cv100nr&price-to=1000&page=2
  11. If you focus hard enough on the interior shots, you can actually smell the mould. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1987-D-Renault-25-GTS-2-0-LITRE-Petrol-Automatic/203164107471?hash=item2f4d8642cf:g:vxsAAOSww6lfn8Y9
  12. I'm getting hints of X-Type and Bristol Fighter, with a base note of Lexus and a not insignificant dash of Bernie and Leepu.
  13. That is made of win.... although it boggles my mind that the US was still producing stuff like that in the early 90s! Looks straight out of the 70s!
  14. Ugh, imagine being stuck in an LDV van with the olfactory aftermath of last night's badly-cooked camping food. I mean being stuck in any van with that is bad, but an LDV just adds that extra layer of desperation.
  15. Absolutely beautiful. Who WOULDN'T want to go for a slash in full view of everyone passing by?
