  1. I was watching 'I Love 1984' on BBC2 last night and in a clip of the show 'Tucker's Luck' I spotted this Rover P5B, looked up the reg expecting it to be either made up or if real, the car would be long dead, but no, still showing as taxed and Googling the registration brings up some pictures of it looking in great shape
  2. I was hoping you could make out the reg, it was only on screen momentarily and that was the clearest screenshot I could get, thought it was ...457P but was struggling with the first bit
  3. For several years I've used Sun Motors in Southend, Essex and would definitely recommend them - nice blokes, very fair, honest and trustworthy and always been happy with their work - website here
  4. May not help a lot if they won't take car parts at the moment, but I've always found it's been a lot cheaper to use Parcelforce for international stuff by going via one of the parcel websites like Parcel2Go or ParcelMonkey compared to going direct to Parcelforce. May be worth a look at those two sites anyway as they use a variety of couriers so maybe some will have different policies on what they take? Basically you put in the parcel weight, size and destination and there's usually a decent range of options
  5. Early Mk1 Mondeo 1600 saloon on Facebook Marketplace £600 Can't see the whole reg but K92DAW comes up as a white Mondeo, registered 8th April 1993, MoT expired November 2018. Seller's name rings a bell from banger racing so that may be its fate if it doesn't sell although ad isn't a 'buy or it gets raced' one
  6. A lot of the other ads say that if the MoT shows as expired, the car will come with a fresh MoT, but not this one, so that may tell a story!
  7. i thought maybe the MoT until 2015 bit was a typo given the iffy spelling in the rest of the ad and the fact that it's mentioned almost as a selling point, but it is indeed nearly 5 years since the test expired. Great selection of tat amongst seller's other cars
  8. Reg is KN54ZKK, using this handy info posted by Pillock a few years back You can only do it if the ebay advert has the "Get the vehicle status report" link in the Item Specifics box, where the reg number will be "Y******" or something. Click the link, in the address it goes to something like http://cgi.ebay.co.u...&vrm_d=Y*** *** It'll say "Viewjumppageforvehiclehistory" in the address, and then &vrm= with a load of gibberish. You want to copy the bit after &vrm= until the first % sign - so in the example above, it's WTY2OFhBT Go to https://www.base64decode.org/and paste that encoded text in, and hit decode. This example is Y668XAO
  9. Only a minor milestone and not worth stopping mid-journey to photograph, but my Nissan Note turned over 150k recently
  10. If this person isn't on here, they should be!
  11. https://www.facebook.com/groups/132989750101871/?fref=nf Not sure if you need to be a group member to see the ad, no MoT but looks worth saving £100 Year: 2000 Make: 308436969822020 Model: 651174758670055 Body style: small_car Exterior colour: Green Interior colour: Grey Mileage: 100000 My mum's old Honda accord No tax or mot probably not much good for the road but maybe for parts ? Please Call me on 07903280097 if you are interested
  12. I owned one of these for eight years, covering around 130k in it, reliability was great, never once let me down in that time and mainly just needed the usual stuff that wears out, although it did have the front crossmember replaced due to rot, not uncommon on these. I think the timing chain and gearbox troubles were sorted by the time mine and yours were made, certainly I had no such problems. Nice enough to drive, just no-frills transport which was no doubt what Nissan intended it to be, silver the best colour as you never need to clean it and it'll still look OK. I sold it for a future round the oval as with 170k on the clock and I'm ashamed to say a less than religious servicing routine, it had started to burn a fair bit of oil, but still ran and drove fine. and even scraped an MoT like that. I'm sure yours will serve you well.
