  2. Ah that takes me back! I remember when I was working as a Saturday boy at the local Ford garage in the ‘90s the MD showed me how he used to use this device to get the key numbers for customers. Seriously cool bit of kit.
  4. That’s a shame, excellent MOT history on that one. 2.0 Titanium Auto, originally registered as EK08 NDV.
  5. Happy 40th Birthday to the bASe! 🎂🎂🎂 Registered on this day in 1983.
  6. This is the best time, waiting in anticipation to pick up a new purchase. Nothing quite like it 😁
  7. Astonishingly good value, that. You seriously cannot lose a penny in that deal. Hope you get to the cause of the bobbling!
  8. Spotted on Flickr by the excellent user that is Alpus. A bloody SVE! 🥵🥵🥵🥵
  9. I didn’t realise that Kerridges had even closed down. That’s a shame.
  10. Nice purchase. Also nice to see it repatriated back to Scotland - ‘SP’ is a Dundee area code.
  11. Interesting watch - I was talking to a chap who works for the police as a civilian driver and he says that Norfolk Constabulary are phasing out the BMW’s and have taken delivery of a load of Volvos…
  12. That’s only vinyl stick on shit, that’ll come off easy enough, you can see it peeling around the mileage readout housing.
  13. High-mileage 1.3 CDTi and a list of MOT PHAILS means it doesn’t look too promising for this one.
  14. Holy thread resurrection Batman! Here’s a very early Mk7 Fiesta on an ‘08 plate. They were launched on a ‘58 plate so this one is a pre-launch model. I’ve only ever seen one more ‘08’. on eBay… https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/166083823234?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=z4E5EFEsTfu&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=2OenAfhOTCK&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  15. Not very shite but I bought my Hyundai Matrix recently and when it needed work doing, I was given a courtesy car by the garage. This one. It’s only a Fiesta 1.4 Dizzle but I fell in love with it and I had a plan hatched in my mind to buy it and give the Hyundai back to the garage. The dealer even said he wouldn’t say no to the deal. However SWMBO was mildly annoyed* at the prospect so I chickened out of the deal. I was absolutely gutted to hand it back. it’s rather silly and embarrassing to say it, but it really upset me that I couldn’t have it. One day (if they’ve still got it) then it could finally be mine for good and that would be the only car I’d ever need for the rest of my days. * raging.
  16. That looks brilliant! Dangly mirror FTW.
  17. A friend of a friend is selling this SOLID GOLD SHITE Rover 75 in 2.0 Dizzle & Mills flavour. I’ve no idea about it, just that’s it’s sex on wheels and stupidly cheap. Have some images.
  18. If @Crusty Sillscan’t collect or store it for any reason, then I can go and collect it. I’m about 30 minutes from Attleborough if that helps?
  19. Spotted on facearse marketplop. Drivers door in Cardinal Red at Attleborough in Norfolk. EDIT: I think it also comes with a DANGLY MIRROR TOO.
  20. This thread has made my heart very full. Just chucked a tenner across, hopefully that’ll buy a rattle can or the windscreen wiper arm nut covers that it needs.
  21. There’s a Mk1 being broken for spares just up the road from me if anything is needed? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/195282076305?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=-gB9UgnDRpu&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=2OenAfhOTCK&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  22. OMG ORIGINAL PL8S ARE ON THE CAR AGEN South Norfolk Classics on Facebook.
  23. It will be for sale at South Norfolk Classics at Diss in Norfolk in the next few days. I’m sure they’ve got a website and a faceache page 😁
