  1. I used to love seeing capris about, these Lasers plus the “s” models ; I nearly bought one for £500 off (the recently deceased) bob of bobs affordable classics in knowle, in about 2004 Sadly they are just too expensive and a theft target for me to have some fun with them but it’s lovely to read about you resurrecting this one, what a great find!
  2. My bmw 3 convertible is so low (too low for my taste) as to make cat theft less easy. M-sport FTW. Maybe we all need to lower our cars? Uncomfortable ride, but more of a pisser for cat thieving fraternity?
  3. So having been saved from a Bentley disaster by @panhard65 as related above, i ve realised I’ve not introduced my “other” bmw. An e46 330ci convertible. This and the 730d are my only cars. The e46 with the 3 litre 6 was something I’ve wanted to try for a while. This one was cheap as it was previously a cat D. It was also silver with grey interior, a pretty dull boring combo which to be honest isn’t really what I’d go for, but my arm was twisted by the price. Ditto the auto gearbox. To be honest it sort of suits it as a laid back cruiser. Presumably most “sport” ones had a manual box and were more appealing to owners who like to cane it a bit? As acquired it had been attacked with m badges. It actually is an “m - sport” but I’m pretty sure it left the factory without fake carbon wrap on the kidneys and a crooked M……. Anyway that was swiftly binned, and sure enough under the peeling black stuff on the grille is the normal chrome. I also slapped a cheap cheap number I’d squirrelled away on it (1963 derby reg IIRC) to try and add some more class*. These things need all the help they can as to my eyes they do have a bit of an iffy vibe- although as they get older people have tended to move into the newer shape ones.
  4. Wow. LOVE IT. the colour is just epic. Sort of Far Eastern glam. I’ll have to live my Bentley dream through you from now on 😆
  5. 1980s Highway Codes used to have a triumph 2000 on that page IIRC
  6. Toyota theft +100000
  7. Very perceptive re the landcrab thing. Wierdly I can’t Un-see that so when I climb aboard I’m at the wheel of a wolseley six.
  8. Well this sold the day after the ad was listed for close to the asking. I’ve got to give a massive thanks to @panhard65 for saving my bacon with that old Bentley. He sussed out the things needing attention, advised against putting much money into it, did the ad and handled the sale. What a brilliant guy.
  9. Looks like it’s with rostyles and without original reg.
  10. ^ love it, looks to be inspired by the mid 60s triumph entries at Le Mans. Looking at its semi dilapidated state, and the lack of fuel, wonder if this is around 1973?
  11. @Dan_ZTT A Glyn johns biography also comes with it
  12. Sad news for the Bentley. It’s a bit of a heap. An opportunity if you feel brave. Panhard65 is kindly handling the sale if you fancy it https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/225175407681?hash=item346d800c41:g:hTAAAOSw7s5jLZsU&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoHzdLllDKbs3jHYsfgaR2puvBxebMbI2r04cRCZ515Px4C9jR9JubjdvkIDDI%2BR3Jfs0CjzMXuWGK%2FWgIHppRYWQUA6aBHUsaJbCB3URV9f3dmkkmis%2B2l5%2FnJ9xP7izG1w3ciruNe0wFKH9eGbsc8jISbO%2FB1uOSx0QN%2BbNLiBlR5m4vTnLJE0PU4G7QOvtPurPavPnvpSQgPJxSFA7orc%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR8aw7bDtYA
  13. I have to hold my hand up - I was the twat. I had some business in Bristol and offered to make a detour by si’s house to let him look at the tt. On the way up I stopped off at a dealer and did a deal with the dealer for the bmw. As I explained to Si, I had some reservations about the functioning of the DSG- which I shared with the him and the dealer. At the end of the day my comfort level for offering a car here is at a higher bar than when selling to the trade. I guess I don’t like to hear when cars I’ve sold in good faith go wrong for forum members. Apologies again to Si .
