  1. I don’t know, but that’s a very good question. I definitely haven’t* been driving around in MOT exempt cars without it occurring to me to check the smallprint of my insurance — no sirree Bob, not me. Just as well since I work in insurance and am personally regulated by the FCA and PRA, so getting done for no insurance would instantly kill my career.
  2. Fine spots. That VW T25 is an early CI Kamper conversion, I imagine on an X- or Y-reg; they only came in that yellow/orange colour or white at first. We had a white one from new — NUH 414X — which is still around somewhere.
  3. Early-ish, certainly - later ones had flatter door handles and more vent holes in the wheels. The mudflaps look 60s rather than 70s too, but may not be original. Lack of a chrome rubbing strip denotes poverty rather than age, I believe.
  4. No, it really doesn't. I am shamelessly quoting the picture on purpose just so we can see it again. Outstanding.
  5. De-yellowed for the sake of everyone’s eyes.
  6. That Rover 827 is a complete babe. It lacks an MOT though — expired a couple of weeks ago, with advisories last year for rust and an exhaust blow: Monitor and repair if necessary (advisories): Oil leak, but not excessive Engine (8.4.1 (a) (i)) Exhaust has a minor leak of exhaust gases (6.1.2 (a)) Underside has general corrosion Sill lips have general corrosion Still would though. Hard.
  7. A quick update after a long silence: The Aerodeck is now freshly MOTd after a wee tickle at the rear of the sills. My friendly local tester/garage pronounced it a very good car, and he’s right - everything still works in spite of a lack of recent use. It’s tucked up warm in the shed now — I think I might take it to London next week, a run will do it good.
  8. Thanks — thing is, I don’t really as nothing has gone wrong on mine. Rust around the rear arches and sills is the only thing that stops these being immortal, I think.
  9. This is not an immaculate car https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223860958007 MOT until May, £650 start (including £400 of Ford tax). I drove the car from Epping to Luton Bedfordshire faultlessly That must be all of, what, 30-odd miles? What do you want, a fucking medal?
  10. That Ibiza is a total honey. To be utterly perfect it just needs those 72-spoke alloys the early ones had.
  11. Personally I think these Sunny ZX Coupés are fairly rubbish, but I know some on here like them. This one is cheap so far. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F324040684797 I’ll give the seller a point for not mentioning barns until well into the listing though.
  12. Well hello. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283744532628 That Mazda 323 is epic though. Think I prefer it.
  13. There’s some great 17th century spelling in that VW LT camper ad, or maybe it’s just a Lincolnshire thing. does start run and drive for loading pourpuses ???
