  1. So it's been a very very expensive week, the Honda finally got booked in for a new clutch, DMF, rear pads, discs, Callipers and a Track rod. I also had a pipe welded in after the Cat was nicked. Next on the list is a set of new tyres - may go for a full set of 4 and keep the best of the 4 crap ones as a spare and tracking! Christ - I'm not even going to start to add up how much this lot has cost me, for a car that has no current MOT and 207k.
  2. A couple of months ago I nabbed the Chevy spark that was for sale here - today we have success! New brake lines will be done in the coming weeks / months. I'm really glad it's up and running, minus the missfire now!, as the Honda has been taken of the road while it waits it's turn in the garage for new clutch, flywheel, full cat back stainless steel exhaust, new rear callipers and anything else they find wrong with it.
  3. Ordered and shall pay from work pc tomorrow
  4. I'll take one as always. Thanks
  5. I'd say a lot of people on here have been in the same position, myself included. I've had my Herald for over 10 years now, I keep saying I'm going to spend time and money on it, but i can always find 'better' things to spend my time and money on. I've been told many times i should sell it, give it to a better home, but it costs me zero ££ per month to keep. Thankfully now it's in a *dry garage, but this is away from home and means I do sort of have to 'book in' to visit and work on it. I do have keys to the garage and 24 hour access if i want. Personally unless you need the money I'd keep - you could put a time line on it, say 6 months if it's still not on the road back up for sale. maybe the push you need to get it back into action. - also surely up and running with a bit of rattle can action it'd be worth a few more quid?
  6. I feel like we should invite this chap over here, sounds like he'd fill pages and pages of the Forum with his work keeping his old pug on the road. would 100% read. Brilliant advert also - sincerely hope this chap is not messed about selling his motor.
  7. Had two auto green sport chaser on the front of the CRV, done some very very wet trips to Scotland and pushed on with them and always found them to behave very well, they now need changing and last time I checked I couldn’t get my size, 215/65/16 from national
  8. But don’t have too much credit that you’re not using, a few years ago I had a crazy amount of availability on credit cards, not maxed out, I had a couple I’d not used for a while and was advised to close them by our bank when sorting our mortgage out a few years ago.
  9. I think, more than happy to be proven wrong, that the MOT tester is wrong, doesn't look like a Minibus or coach to me?
  10. But if it’s genuine, I’m coming home in a mini tomorrow 🤣
  11. Yes, by loads, phoned left a message, it’s either a scam listing or the seller doesn’t know what’s it’s worth,
  12. I’d just love to bring that back to its former glory.
  13. What a great read, only just come across this thread, brilliant.
  14. Found a box of old cars in our loft earlier, most are from my older brothers and from the 70’s & 80’s. They are well played with and have been passed onto my son, we put them away about 4 years ago when we moved.
