  1. Yep, this is the 188bhp version, the ‘compressor’ was 213bhp! Also a very early one, December 2001 registered.
  2. Something in me wants to bring that to the UK and get it registered as B252 AHT, That would confuse the arse off the DVSA.
  3. That’s a saloon Vectra, too for added misery points!
  4. I’d say the indicator stalk is a BL item, maybe an old Marina or Ital will yield what you need?
  5. Thank goodness it’s been potentially saved from the hands of a complete knuckle dragger. I’ve seen this happen to a couple of cars that I had my eye on, sold within moments of getting funds or the time to go and view and then find out it’s been ragged to death within a month or two. Hope it all goes well on the collection.
  6. Small grin, but I was having a clear out in the shed just now and found an old time clock removed from a 1984 Mk2 Fiesta back when I used to work on it at college in 2002. It was removed from the car after apparently short circuiting and smoke began to come out of the back of it. I rescued it from the bin as I wanted to see if I could get it working again. Anyway, I forgot about it until this afternoon and thought I’d rig it up to my portable jump starter for shits and gigs. Well bugger me if the thing has magically cured itself and started working again. I think I will keep it for another 18 years and flog it on eBay.
  7. That truck looks the perfect* vehicle for picking up a knackered old Cavalier from a disused car lot in Derbyshire.
  8. Billeh is on a roll, some fine* motors currently passing through his hands at the moment!
  9. That looks FH04UKC’ed. Superb effort, Sir.
  10. I’d like to buy the Cav, get it roadworthy and show it at FOTU in 2020. Sadly dreams and reality are two very different stories.
  11. I’ve phoned the number and I’ve spoken to Grenville the owner of the garage. He is a lovely chap and was enthusiastic about the cars (well, he was 10 years ago). I’ve said it before but I’m happy to help with moving the Rover out of the garage, I can lend mechanical know how etc.
  12. That’s the not2grand bloke that DW met, IIRC.
  13. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163654479432 Strong money at £1200 but it looks absolutely bloody immaculate. Last owner for 9 years. Being the 1.6 it’s got the 17” wheels too. I’d be happily driving that for years.
