  1. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1978-CHRYSLER-AVENGER-1600-GL-ESTATE-WITH-64-000-MILES-IN-GREAT-CONDITION/124928881818?ul_ref=https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1&_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1&ul_noapp=true&fbclid=IwAR0tbUO0vRcgkvtIcl6ps4McyqOqCjOojf_i5k8KoDuk5zV62rrQlZ0h0qY&pageci=68f38c7b-f100-4fce-be74-1a9d27eb395e This Avenger has popped up again. It's now gained some horrible wheels, horrible number plates and horrible seats, as well as a hefty price tag!
  2. Regrettably I’m otherwise engaged on the 30th.
  3. Nice. Love the prefacelift beige interior with the nicer early wood too. I remember reading the thread now you mention it, although I thought it was long gone. Great to see your dad is still getting use out of it
  4. Any pictures of the Rover? It looks like a 600 and I like these.
  5. On the Maxus, the odos fail and show an incorrect, much higher mileage. A very common fault with them.
  6. I'd have the tailgate struts and glovebox lid off that Mondeo for fatha_ad's one if it was local.
  7. Wow, a TA14 woody! Looks great. Moar pics required plz.
  8. Yeah that’s the place. Never tried the other one, i think anything would be a disappointment after the AM. Interesting to read about the history of the place.
  9. Any passerby staring at an arc while the Doc is welding is a moron anyway.
  10. Best thing to use is a squirty bottle of the type used for watering plants, with a trigger. Mine is a “trigger sprayer” from Wilko. A must I’m afraid, I’ve had a few fires over the years when not bothering and nearly lost a car, managed to save it by running to a fish pond, throwing a bucket in then running back and chucking it on the engine. Fortunately managed to put the 18” high flames out, but there were various bits of the engine bay scorched and melted including lots of the wiring loom. I still have the car, but my mojo went through the floor with it after that happened and I’ve barely worked on it since 😢
  11. The repairs to that cut exhaust would be a nice easy job for someone with a welder.
  12. I think the reviews for this place are very unfair. Yes, the girl serving behind the counter was quite surly. She was fit, though, so I wasn’t too fussed. The owner is an old bloke who is really into his military history. Lovely bloke and very friendly. There’s a little jumble sale by the door with all proceeds going to charity. My food has been good and reasonably priced, all the times I’ve been there. A lot of negative reviews come from the fact that they don’t people other than actual customers use their toilets. I think that’s fair enough really and to be fair there’s a massive sign by the door stating the same. The decor is something else. I think there’s three different types of artex in there for a start! There is an equally dated looking bar/function room adjoining the cafe, but I don’t get the impression that gets much use!
  13. Definitely up for this, providing the dates work.
  14. Being heavily into 40s/50s family cars the news of a potential price drop doesn't bother me. In fact quite the opposite, my only concern being I'll soon realise how much I overpaid for my A40 Somerset in 2014. Younger people are being priced out of these cars at the moment and lower prices will help encourage them in.
