  1. I don’t know what magazine that’s from but it’s shockingly poorly written and sub-edited. Great to see some Panda progress though, can’t wait until it’s MOT’d and trotting about.
  2. Sad but the right move. That had the look of an end of life car. What’s taking up daily* lugging duties? More hot Seat Toledo action?
  3. Check out this boggo 440 in Pogweasel, with bonus confidence-inspiring pictures of a BFO jump pack and more skips than Jonathan Edwards. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1994-Volvo-440-Li-1-6-Petrol-Manual-Low-mileage-/114625416529?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 9 bids has shilled it all the way up to £102. Prime AS material. Get on it, people.
  4. Only slightly shonky BX Diesel wagon, £400 start. Nice. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Citroen-BX-RD-Estate-/303843857503?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  5. I see your old Rover and raise you. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-100-Woody-Estate-One-Off-1960-/333840472173?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  6. I am a Metro fan, and a launch spec 1.3S in metallic brown is about perfect. It needs quite a lot of love though. I’ll chip in money and remote encouragement if someone steps up, but that’s about it as I have no more space and too many projects already. I wish it were not so, but it is.
  7. They might count as business shoes in the celebrity world of radio entertainment, mister, but scuffed brown Chelsea boots are deffo weekend country wear on the mean streets of EC3. (Or were before batflu.)
  8. I’m starting to think you’re actually me. Probably nicer though. I still have a saved eBay search in place for cheap Elites, even though I already have one. I promise* never** to post anything that comes up and tag you in it.
  9. True, provided your fingers are eight inches long with four joints in them. [Has flashbacks. Shudders.]
  10. I’ve owned various configurations: Single: Honda CLR125 CityFly V-twin: Honda XL125V Varadero Triple: Triumph Street Triple 675 Inline four: Audi 80 B3, Renault 16 Transverse four: lots Slant four: Vauxhall 2300S, Lotus Elite Flat four: Lancia Gamma Flat six: Porsche Cayman Straight six: Vauxhall Royale, BMW 320i, Jaguar XJ6 V6: Ford Granada (inline), Rover 75 (transverse) V8: Rover 3500, Discovery 1 V12: XJ-S Missing: I’ve driven a flat twin Fiat Nuova 500, a V5 VW Bora and couple of Audi inline fives (a Coupe Quattro
  11. Didn’t spot a Lagonda but there’s another Mulsanne/Spirit across the road. Still, I’m sure* none of the parts have been swapped off this one to make that one better. Nobody would do that, would they? Listing’s ended now anyway.
  12. Conventional dehumidifiers are pretty useless but these dessicant ones are excellent: https://www.meaco.com/products/meaco-dd8l-junior-dehumidifier As recommended by someone (me) who used to run a Discovery 1 with no less than four windows in the roof, all of which leaked.
  13. Blimey that’s cheap for a tidy E30 six, even if it’s only a 320i with the wrong gearbox. It’ll get flipped quickly.
  14. Excellent move sir. That looks pretty solid actually. Very much looking forward to more info and updates. I need to give mine a service and a run. I believe the rules are that professional delivery services (like our own Wingz and Worldofceri) can collect it for you as they are allowed to work. Going to get it yourself, not so much (assuming you’re in Tier Staythefuckathome like most of us).
  15. LOL, I drew that! I did make a good start on doing the @chaseracer fleet for you, but then the whole web application and its database got taken down due to an admin fuckup by the hosting business. I’ve still got the code for the site but all the vector drawings are lost, sadly, including a number of variants of the AS logo. Sigh.
  16. I’m guessing Dolomite rather than Toledo - the boot looks longer and I reckon Chris is more of a Dolomite sort of chap.
  17. I don’t have any issue with traders selling cars for more than they paid for them, that’s what trade is. My issue is this fucking chancer is deliberately lying about the car to boost its value. That’s not trade, that’s fraud, and I don’t care whose ‘good lad’ mate he is.
  18. Aw Wuv, it’s like I never went away. That sucks. Why are so many sellers such lying bastards these days? (I guess I’m assuming they didn’t mention the alternator was fucked.) Although at least it had some fuel in it I suppose. And the decency to drag its sorry French arse to a service station, if you’re generous and count Clacket Lane as service.
  19. Good choice — hopefully this link works better: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1279958 What you really want is my Victor though, and forget Easyjet.
  20. Friend of mine had exactly the same idea and bought himself this Zetec-powered Consul Capri for Christmas: This... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1966-Ford-Country-Sedan-390-Cubic-Inch-Big-Block-6-4-Nine-Passenger-Model-/114562762943 ...leaves enough change to scratch the 190E 2.6 itch as well, complete with beige interior and trimz. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1989-Mercedes-Benz-190-190E-2-6-4-DOOR-AUTO-SALOON-Petrol-Automatic-/224170269642
  21. Oh wow, that Granada. Those Cortinas. All of it in fact. Just...wow.
  22. Thanks Vantman, you too! PS your old Aerodeck is now my main daily and still hasn’t missed a beat. I love it.
