  2. Yep. I'm in as usual. Will probably be in a dull car, though.
  3. Every time I come back to this thread, I regret selling my 172. I hope it's being looked after, @DialATune Let me know if you want to sell!
  4. *throws toys out of pram* Seriously, though, I'd be keeping that Mini. Especially for £800.
  5. Finally got round to a brief update. As you may know, I bought the forum bike A3 from Leanycan, for Mrs S to drive. She liked it, but wasn't really feeling it, when conveniently* he messaged me to see if I wanted a deal in the roffle win Alfa. We all love an Alfa at Sporty Towers, so a deal was done.
  6. S, the Scene Whore has gone. Wasn't really getting any use from it, and seeing as I'd got the Audi, I didn't need it. Posted on Caddy and Inca group on Facebook, and it sold same night for full asking. Result. Last picture from fb advert. Looks like my shite activity may slow even further soon. Insurance is due, and my trade renewal is now prohibitively expensive. Still awaiting a couple of quotes, but I can't see it coming down enough to be worthwhile.
  7. So something popped up, and I thought it would be nice to own. We now have the VAG trio of one VW (Bora), one Seat (Inca) and one Audi. The van will be up for sale soon, but I think I'll try it on Facebook Caddy page for maximum scene exposure! Stress free delivery this morning, and now on the drive at SPORTY TOWERS whilst we decide who will have it. Me or Mrs. S.
  8. Right, time to post a few more. First off, a snap of the house I stayed in on a German exchange trip in 1984. Bonus VAG street furniture. Next up, a trip to Southport in FATHA SPORTYS Oldsmobile Starfire, when the exchange student came to us. And finally, for now, late 70s caravan holiday with FATHA SPORTYS Celeste.
  9. Nothing you want to get rid of? I could make a generous * offer on something to facilitate a deal 😃😃
  10. Can assist with collection and/or storage. Wigan is just round the corner from SPORTY_TOWERS GIB, Bob.
  11. Have you bought it yet?
  12. Finally got some photos from mums. Not going to do them all at once, but I'll make a start. First off, Ma Sportys first car. Mini Clubman auto. For some reason, my grandad had fitted a loud exhaust when my grandma owned it. Next up, me with my first bike, RD80 LC. This was my 17th birthday. Next, not one of our cars, but a picture taken of the hovercraft we were about to board in September 1976. And finally for tonight, a picture of the car we boarded in. Fatha Sporty had the genius idea of making a roof rack to mount the trailer tent on, so we wouldn't have to pay extra on the hovercraft!
  13. Looked at the Astra again today. The injectors are out, and I'd planned on refitting them today, However, when I've taken them out to clean, I've noticed tney have rubber seals on the shaft, that have obviously perished. My question id, can I use normal rubber O rings to replace these, or do I need to use "proper" parts. Obviously, I'm replacing the copper washers to seal the combustion chamber, but don't want to have to re-do the job if I get it wrong. I know this might be a stupid question, but I'm pretty naïve when it comes to diesels.
  14. I'll bid £525 😃 I could see myself out and about on nurse call in this. Like a 21st Century Nurse Gladys!
