  1. Close, same year and colour, mine's had more owners (last change in 2015) done more miles and it has a roof spoiler.. I paid a little more for it too.
  2. It's a Nissan 100NX . They only came in 1.6 four pot flavour here.The rest of Europe got a 2.0 litre aswell. Your thinking of the Mazda MX3 this is based on a Nissan Sunny hence the blandness.
  3. Went to King's Lynn today . I did a buy. This charming little fellow is now in my workshop Speedo doesn't work but hey other than that it's a cracker. Bland as bland can be and that front end is a bit erm but it has a certain charm.
  4. Thought I'd make a start on the Discovery clutch today. When I bought it the previous owner told me his mate fitted a new clutch six months earlier.Looking at the bodges to the structure I just shrugged. How it got through an MoT I never knew. The rear seatbelt prescribed area was repaired with a bit of tin and some No-nails (which I peeled off when looking at it) and behind the plastic trim the sills consisted of tin, black mastic and pop rivets. Both inner and outer. I thought if he had done the clutch I wonder what bodges I will find.I found to select diff lock you have to crawl underneath and move a copper tube that is rammed onto the lever when I first got the car so early indications were Mr Bodger had something to do with the gearbox. The centre console isn't screwed down.The screws are there and so are the fixings but none are screwed together. With this removed and the top part of the gear lever off I removed the sound deadening to find the next bodge. There is a rubber seal across the tunnel held in place with 12 pop rivets.Mr Bodger decided drilling through all those rivets is too much work so he has sliced through the seal front to back.Yeah if he had removed the seal maybe he would have seen what was happening to the diff lock lever when putting the gearbox back in. I haven'tgot any further yet as I need to move the car in and out of the workshop. The parts won't be delivered until Friday anyway. Yes I have ordered a heavy duty clutch fork before you ask.Wonder what else I will find.

  12. So much harder for the auctioneer , how do they know who is bidding with everybody hands in the air clutching a phone.
  13. Well, it feels like the the clutch fork is bursting through its pivot on the Discovery. It had a clutch fitted before I bought it three years ago. Probably fitted a Britpart clutch. Oh well. Sold the Mercedes coupe in November so I'm using the 206cc until I get time to do the clutch. Today my glamorous assistant asked me to look at her car as it's making a funny noise. the clutch release bearing is making the pedal judder. Great.....that's one tiny working car between the two of us and two cars with knackered clutches.How long has your car been like that ? "started at christmas". I had a few days off between christmas and new year could have done her clutch then if she had mentioned it...........Brilliant .

  24. I thought at first maybe a 50's Alfa saloon but the bonnet is wrong. As it's a Ford proving ground , a European prototype Edsel ( judging by the bonnet and grille ) perhaps.
  25. Someone on here had driven past a while ago and it was the same as the video Edit: it was Progrocker
