Rank: Austin Maxi (4/12)



  1. One for the true crime fans. Volvo S60 T5 ex police car used in the Raoul Moat police man hunt back in 2010 in the Newcastle area. https://www.gumtree.com/p/volvo/2008-volvo-s60-t5-2.4-260bhp-ex-police-manual-/1432728124
  2. My 190 has an electric heated passenger side mirror and a manual unheated drivers side. Cost cutting possibly but functionally makes sense. Have no idea if the heated passenger side mirror was an option back in 1991.
  3. Good vid on how to not damage the threads when drilling a bolt out.
  4. Could be wrong but i always assumed diesel when mixed with engine oil would have the effect of thinning the oil in the sump.
  5. Look at the fucking state of this 190e. I do not object to the window louvre it is the wet paint look (black dulux?), wrong offset w210 alloys, tinted lenses, DTM back box and dukes of hazard smoke screen shot that grinds my gears. It has (had) 122bhp (34 years ago) not 400 FFS. https://www.gumtree.com/p/mercedes-benz/1988-black-mercedes-benz-190-classic-2.0-automatic-with-mot-for-repair-/1431392007
  6. 1984 Renault 5 GTL. Petrol. CT ok. Looks very original and has a warts and all description. 1740 euros. These seem to be much more valuable in the UK (rust hence rarity?). North of Montelimar southern France. https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2128223976.htm
  7. 1991 205 colour line (French limited edition?) CT ok. Petrol. Cantal region (middle of nowhere). Looks clean. 1350 euros. https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2153521966.htm
  8. 1981 Renault 18 in the Cantal region with CT ok until 2026. 2000 euros. Looks nice-ish. I am guessing cars are cheaper in the less affluent rural departments of France. Mot and tax free once back in the UK. https://www.leboncoin.fr/voitures/2137340519.htm
  9. The mechanical Bosch injection pumps are lubricated by the engine oil not the fuel. So you cannot break it by using SVO/WVO. Worst that will happen is leaky fuel delivery o rings on the injection pump and the need to spend a few quid on fresh fuel filters when they get restricted after the veg oil cleans the fuel system out. 70 odd pence a litre saving is not to be sniffed at. Plus legend has it non fossil fuels are actually environmentally friendly.
  10. Yep mechanical Bosch injection pump will run Veg oil no problem, just carry some spare fuel filters if it has run on pump diesel up until now.
  11. Renault Twingo 1.2 TCE GT. Cheap little 100bhp turbocharged warm hatches. Sub 2 grand on AT. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202201061078499?sort=relevance&include-delivery-option=on&make=Renault&price-to=2000&radius=1501&postcode=ne22te&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&advertising-location=at_cars&model=Twingo&page=1 or the top sporty Twingo the 1.6VVT RenaultSport for 133bhp fun. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202202132509190?sort=relevance&make=Renault&price-to=2000&include-delivery-option=on&radius=1500&advertising-location=at_cars&postcode=ne22te&model=Twingo&onesearchad=New&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=Used&page=2
  12. Vauxhall Meriva VXR. 2007 vauxhall meriva vxr 1.6 turbo | in Blackburn, Lancashire | Gumtree
  13. Mercedes S210 430 estate. Rare old V8. No mot and ominously mot history notes underbody very corroded way back in 2015 but nothing rust related since. https://www.gumtree.com/p/mercedes-benz/mercedes-v8-e430-estate-wagon-runs-and-drives/1424713456
  14. Don't know what this seller thinks they are up to but this admittedly very nice looking amg ducktailed w201 is not a 190e 2.3 or 2.5 16 valve. According to the DVLA tax checker site it is a 190e 1.8 with an expired MOT. Currently at just over 7 grand. Wonder if they think people are stupid enough not to notice when they open the bonnet? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224893455242?hash=item345cb1cb8a:g:-rgAAOSw96NiNLmq
  15. Looks like a liquid lunch of 2 cans of Carlsberg was on the menu for the seller. Hic. Barefaced liar or maybe just pissed as a fart.
