  1. Matey had one last year, he said parts were hard to get. Headlamps were virtually unobtainable and he considered buying a whole parts car just for them.
  2. This. One of the early owners of that Porsche lived in Headingley just outside Leeds and had it for six months. Definitely a ‘try it and then sell’ car.
  3. Been waiting for a topic like this. Many moons ago, me and my dad owned this lovely* 1983 Porsche 944. Nice and tidy, low owner car you say? RONG. Yes, 23 other people owned it before us. It had been up and down the UK. Started off in London, then moved north for a few years before coming back to Cambridgeshire and then Norfolk in 1992. It was also featured on the front cover of Porsche Post magazine when nearly new in 1984 with its original registration. It had been subject to a rolling restoration. It looked passable on the surface but the underneath was coated in 10 layers of underseal ‘to stop it rotting m8’. The interior looked like a pitbull had been let loose inside it. I sold it on to a guy who drove it all the way back to Staffordshire 😳 never heard of it again.
  4. I’m thinking it was maybe a shuttle vehicle for Eastern Europeans? Not stereotyping, serious question.
  5. Well I had to see this one to believe it. 2010 Ford Galaxy 2.0 TDCi Ghia just came into scrap. Opened the door and checked the mileage…. Yes, that’s 458,633 miles on the clock. Astonishingly it did an incredible 140,000 miles in one year!
  6. I was watching tv on my break at work. It was Britain’s Notorious Prisons (on ITV). This episode was about Strangeways in Manchester and it featured interviews with ex-prisoners and who was involved with the 1990 riot there. Rioter Alan Lord then popped up and my blood immediately boiled. He was the guy that murdered my dad’s best mate and the reason why he was in there in the first place. Stop giving this c@nt airtime, he doesn’t deserve it. He deserves to rot in hell.
  7. Loving this thread. Have my attempt I did back in 2004, I had the Astra on the left. And a couple of consecutively numbered Transits. West Yorkshire, 1999.
  8. Goodness me I am so sorry to hear this. I hope you can find comfort in the good times you shared together. Thinking of you.
  9. I’ve had this in my watch list for a little while now. It’s been kicking around at the dealers for a while so not sure if it’s just a bag of shit. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/373747408256?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=hi7as8h2q5o&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=2OenAfhOTCK&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY I love its originality, right down to the Whitefield Mercedes number plates (which was round the corner from Grandma Gartside) - scabby door is unfortunate but those 2.0i engines are bulletproof.
  10. Shitehawk - one of the best insults I’ve ever heard. Loving this project by the way, Wheeler Dealers did one the same colour with an unfortunate supremacist-themed number plate. And an unfortunate fat wanker behind the wheel. Interestingly, it has been re-registered as KGY 523V.
  11. I’d love to have a Spitty, it would have to be in the Vermillion colour they did. Class in a glass. Good luck with the collection, your plans for it sound exactly like what I’d do with it too.
  12. K612 PHS - SFAAXXBBAAPU05456 - Build date 10.2.93 K621 PHS - SFAFXXBBAFPM27719 - Build date 26.3.93 Yes my Ford tool uses the original registration number at dealer sale, so very useful to trace imports from Jersey/Guernsey etc.
  13. K616 PHS - WF0AXXGBBAPJ51301. Build date 2.2.93
  14. Thank you for your continued efforts @Stanky .
  15. Bloody hell Tim, what a find that is! Remarkably straight as well. I can almost hear @dollywobblercursing under his breath.
