    Oooh, those looks lovely. I just bagged a 1/32 kit of a Mazda Savanna GT the other day, it is winging its way over to me right now...

    morris_ital_lover reacted to 320touring in Behold! My God, my Chod, look at that shyte ( Renault and BMW content)   
    Now I've been around these parts for some time I thought I better let you see some of the scrap I call the fleet..
     
    I'll start with the best and work backwards.
     
     
    The Burd's Motor..(Babette is the name she goes by)
     
    A 2001 Clio 172 Exclusive, bought sight unseen off ebay for peanuts- because I offered to buy her "a sensible, reliable, new car" to get her safely to/from work.
     
    Its been excellent over the last 10k miles, needing just consumables and a rear caliper to get by, I'm a convert. Goes like stink, handles well and is safe for transporting the lady.
     

     

     

     

     
     
     
    The Kiev Express
     
    An e30 320i touring that has been my constant companion since I bought it on valentines day in 2005. I've slept in it, hammered across continents in it and had it at mildly inappropriate speeds on the Queen's highway.
     
    The burd is under no illusions- If it comes down to a choice between the House or the Kiev Express, the Express wins.
     
    Nurburgring and Knockhill have quivered at the might of its M20b20.
     
    She's lowered slightly, and wears a 3.73 LSD and bilstien B8's- a great drive and needs momentum kept up with her weedy 129bhp.
     
    Also does 400+ miles to a tank if tootling.
     
    Here it is bringing some class to the Applecross Inn
     

     
     
    The 5
     
    A 265k miles e34 535i Sport with LSD as standard. Bout for £300 at auction, then tracked like a bitch, happy to slurp £107 quid of unleaded in 200 miles, and go sideways at the drop of a hat. superb, and dog rough.
     
    Did 201bhp and 211ft/lb of torque from 2500rpm when we rolling roaded it. A hooligan of a car- can't really drive it without hooning.
     

     
     
    The 320d
     
    Another Euro trek car- we schlepped this to Riga (via Stockholm) from Glasgow for a mate's stag do, so I had to rescue it for posterity. cost peanuts, and needs brakes and dampers plus tyres if its ever to see the road again.
     
    I'm trying to figure out what to do with it
     

     
     
     
     
     
    If you doubt my shyte credentials, My first car was one of these
     

     
    and I learned to drive (aged 3 on a private road) in one of these
     

     
    it used to die when warm cos the exhaust manifold was leaking and causing fuel evap in the carb..

    I started browsing autoshite about 7-8 years ago... Back then we were lusting and the 70s motors and looking at the 80s cars as potential classics etc. Fast forward nearly a decade and we've essentially handed over the 70s cars to the 'classics crowd', the 80s cars are well established and are becoming 'classics' and the 90s cars are next on our radar.
     
    90s motors are about a decade away from being truly regarded as being classics but the high profile cars such as the GTIs, Cosworths Vauxhall Lotus Carltons etc will start to attract a lot of interest in the next couple of years. Everything has its time and it is inevitable that us lot will be at the vanguard shepherding the shit cars into safety and onto classicdom, that is what Autoshite does best!

    I can haz Welly shite, too!
     

     
    Generally not bad at all, but has one of my pet hates - headlight lenses attached by means of a stalk in the centre:
     

     
    So I did one of Junkman's phamous Phrench headlight modifications with this.
     
    Step 1 - dismantle the model.
     

     
    The headlight reflectors and lenses are heat riveted to the bodyshell:
     

     
    So step 2 is to carefully scrape away the excess plastic, and the headlights fall right out:
     

     
    Step 3 is to cut off the stalks from the lenses, and polish them:
     

     
    There will always be a mark left, but it is hardly visible once everything is back together.
     
    Step 4 is to simulate yellow headlamps with small beads and clothes pins, like so:
     

     
    The glue used is Tamiya Clear, and it will be invisible once dried, so no worries about the excessive amount used and the bubbling.
    Tamiya Clear is also used to glue the lenses to the reflectors, and the reflectors back to the car in step 5:
     

     
    Voila!
     

     

     

     

     

     

     
    I'm going to pimp the interior a bit in the distant future.
    I have a second one stacked away for a more involved modification - a Pick Up.

    'Inspiral Carpets'
     
    Inspiral refers to the path of binary stars which are losing energy and approaching each other. Several things can cause the loss of energy including tidal forces, mass transfer, and gravitational radiation
     
    Carpets A carpet is a textile floor covering consisting of an upper layer of "pile" attached to a backing
     
    I had a mass transfer followed by tidal force and a loss of energy on my carpet once. Luckily I managed to clear it up before the wife came home.

    It's usually shoes and jackets at the side of the dual carriageway, but I quite often see wheel bolts and disintegrated brake pads laying on the road. I often wonder how they get home like that.
     
     
    Ha! The funniest one I saw like that was long skidmarks going off the side of the A40, followed by turfed up grass and a big hole in the fence smashed into the field behind. Then about maybe 100-150 metres further along was another hole in the fence smashed out towards the road, more turfed up grass and a Porsche down a ditch. I always chuckle when I think about that and would love to have known what happened
