  1. Having just one bus is strange, isn't it? I obviously needed a second one.
  2. I love this, Fregate with the right amount of patina. Not as popular as the smaller rear engined Renaults of the same era, so prices of them are relatively low: https://www.schadeautos.nl/nl/schade/personenautos/renault-fregate-1100/o/1331036

  5. Could go in the cars you didn't know existed-thread as well, I guess: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334187702955?hash=item4dcf23aaab:g:W~wAAOSwSLJhbx-O
  6. *shudders* A second gen Alto is like a Rolls compared to these things. Noisy, flimsy rubbish that breaks often, and driven by either 86 year olds who are almost blind, or 16 year olds who think slapping stickers and a wing on a 5 bhp diesel microcar and then driving it as fast as possible is really cool.
  7. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304190685651?hash=item46d32d81d3:g:3rgAAOSwmX1hbdio Is this another of those ringer kits? The few bits that remain don't look very useable...
  8. Oeeeeh, that's amazing! I am very jealous.
  9. Relatable, I quite like the Corgi 1120 that was included in the lot I bought last month, and *may* start collecting more bus models although I know nothing about buses. Actually a Dinky AEC like yours may look good next to my Corgi! Let's see if I can find any nearby...
  10. Who needs detectives when a clown and an acrobat can solve mysteries and crimes!😁
  11. There used to be another unloved Daf in this exact spot: That one went up in flames a few years ago, then it was replaced by this one that is just rotting away as well. Quite odd...
  12. Lack of interior (and engine) pictures is bugging me too. Another possible issue I noticed is that the advert states that it has leather seats, which an S shouldn't have. Of course they could have been replaced and this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it would have been nice if the seller was clear about it. MOT history raises some questions, the observed oil leak may be trouble. Rear lights shouldn't be discolored if it was kept inside. Mine spent its life under a carport when it was with the longterm first owner and it clearly showed; the left light and paint was faded while the right was pristine.
  13. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154656597004?hash=item240240640c:g:m2MAAOSwQ3dhWfRe Doesn't look bad for the money except for the faded rear lights. Mileometer not working is very likely to be a broken cog, which can be bought new and isn't a difficult job to replace, switching the entire unit is unnecessary. An S instead of an ES, so possibly no infocentre and airco.
