  1. Only on FB marketplace... https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1763732003978135/?ref=search&referral_code=marketplace_search&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3Ad5350fc6-69da-44ae-9e02-0373d2d09e3e And the best bit
  2. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/699999434359506/?ref=product_details&referral_code=marketplace_top_picks&referral_story_type=top_picks WTF happened to this?!?
  3. Near me right now if anyone is interested in it
  4. https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1442086 This has to be one for the best adverts thread Sounds like an utter legend I love these cars and this is almost my ideal spec (sans auto box) This seller sounds like a right character, and I really really like that. Don't suppose it's anyone on here?
  5. Save for the fact it is a visual improvement
  6. I think it was very hot indeed can confirm these are excellent cars, but I had the later T-Series engine though
  7. I have wanted this for years, has been on C&C for yonks. Now it is at an almost attractive price, but that welding looks really difficult. Could someone give me any more reasons to not want it (nothing about them being terrible to drive - this is AS after all) Why is the seat belt doing a runner?
  8. For other cars yes, but these celicas are unloved, probably because FWD
  9. https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1437400 This is a good one First off only limited pictures, don't even know what interior looks like So its been used as an Orgy venue for the past 18 years? not driving? So you're selling a recommissioning job? oh wait guess that's alright then illustrated confirmation might be helpful to back that up... Why sounding so doubtful? Oh I see, won't get much return on that...
  10. I had one as my first car, surprisingly good. I think there is an Urban Myth that a motoring journalist got sacked for concluding it was better than a manufactured car he was testing it against, but I can't confirm
  11. I actually enquired on this car when it was last for sale (or the time before that) It was in Brighton and needed structural welding, if of course, it is the same car, which I suspect it is as the reg is familiar
  12. Well quite a bit has happened since last I updated my thread. So the vehicle assessor came round and I think declared the Volvo as a Cat S, however he upped its pre crash value to £3750, meaning my payout was more sizeable than I expected. Next it was a question of getting time in the bodyshop, but a couple of weeks ago they were able to get it in: And after a day it was looking like this: Now all I am awaiting is some final parts from the 480 club and we should be good to go. On the Audi front I have finally managed to get at least the engine oil changed, the stuff that was in there was horrific. The unholy shaking that it does when idle seems to be the cooling fan being imbalanced, which as I am due to take it to the South of France in the coming weeks could be a source of great amusement* The state of the boot floor however was ghastly, someone should be stoned (and chipped?) for thinking that spraying black underseal over the drainage plugs - on both sides - was a commendable idea! No wonder the boot was regularly becoming a pond. However we have now unplugged them and drilled some extra holes, and Cavity wax was applied with alacrity. I was also able to fit a new aerial, and get my hands on one of my dream Radio Cassette units, the Blaupunkt Memphis SQR 88. We do have a problem in that we can't find a proper earth as the wiring behind the unit is an orgy of untidiness, however the aerial does act as a back up earth, though it isn't recommended. It works for now though. The biggest issue that is preventing the car from being 'complete' is the fact that the Sunroof is still broken, and I have no idea why. One of the rails is clearly a replacement part, and my 6th sense is telling me it is from a B4 generation car, but the design looks the same. Either way it is getting jammed somewhere in the mechanism and so it will not tilt like it is meant to - has anyone had any experience with these going wrong? All this aside, I was also able to have a great time with my good friend @Skizzer going around the NEC resto show and for once seeing real cars under the limelight, a pale yellow Cavalier coupe (complete with actual paint fade) and a Rover V8-S (thankfully not Triton Green - I didn't take any spare underwear with me) were the highlights for me, although there was my ideal spec Renault Megane 225 in the auction, thankfully it had very low miles so I didn't want to buy it. Finally managed to attempt to pretend to imagine being Sam Tyler...

  14. This is a good* one: https://www.carandclassic.com/car/C1437184 Thanks for highlighting that, could have been caught out there... And even less apparent when you won't even bother to find out what they are... In that case why am I not in high demand? ...what? If it had a blue oval stuck to the front then yes Shame, as when I first saw it I thought maybe he wasn't that bad...

  22. A round of Scenic Bingo Bollocks Price aside, We have: Good to know I suppose Glad you spoke to the owner, at least it probably wasn't nicked I should bloody well hope so for what you're asking for it... Why have you put it up this early then? I know its rare and all but it is a Renault Scenic after all... ...ok I have had a tiring day at university which involved driving from winchester to Bath and back, but still, I must be on to something right?
