  1. Whenever I think Montego estate, I think back to sitting in the front of my father's e plate Ford Orion on the morning school run. We regularly used to see a Monty estate of similar vintage with the optional extra boot seats fitted. The owner's two lads used to enjoy pulling faces at whatever car was behind them as they faced out of the rear window. I don't think I've ever seen another family motor with rear facing extra seats aside from the aforementioned Montego.
  2. @Tommyboy12 Did you buy it directly from the original owner? If not, is there any paperwork with their contact details on it? Would be worth asking them a few questions directly, including 'tell me the full story of the Montego from day one', assuming they're still with us.
  3. Someone has done almost 300k in a 1300 petrol Montego? I'm not sure who to congratulate - you or the previous owner! Intrigued to see the recommissioning on this one.
  4. I'm not sure how to embed facearse posts, but this is WELL worth a look. Good to see his mate put his hi-vis on eventually, just in case one of the parked cars wanted to surprise him. Honda Logo looks ok. https://www.facebook.com/www.metrosalvage.co.uk/videos/949289365643102/
  5. Still looks clean. No offence but I think you'll struggle to pull anywhere near 5k for an Li. I sold my Imola 186 kitted SX150 for £3600 around 18 months ago - mine had lots of trick parts to boot, such as front disk, long range fuel tank, electronic ignition etc. Good luck anyway and good time of the year to sell!
  6. That must be a photoshop. There's no rot around the fuel filler.
  7. That's worth every last penny of £1k I reckon. Long MOT and seemingly clean as a pin. Utter barg!
  8. This 100%. I bought one from Bristol a couple of years back purely as a donor setup for my MR2 - a project which didn't happen due to finances being required for new baby boy instead. The Corolla was brilliant at lower speeds and for sheer acceleration. The sound of lift kicking in was addictive. On a long run though, the gearing was bloody ridiculous. I still keep looking from the corner of my eye for another cheap* donor... I still wish I'd had the opportunity of sticking the 190 in my '2 though.
  9. If that's a factory job, there's someone working for Peugeot who is keen on the 'I'll only paint half of my car whatever paint I have sat on the shelf to cover the cheaply repaired accident damage as I'm a tightarse' look.
  10. Slight aside, but could you pm his details? Am also in Kernow and could do with mine sorting.
  11. I still marvel at the fact that this era of J interiors show virtually no wear (including the higher milers) yet <10 year old 1 series look like Big Daddy has been rubbing himself all over the edges whilst wearing a sandpaper jumpsuit.
  12. Welcome back, and sorry about the plague. I didn't know the back story on your SJ, but it makes perfect sense now that it's so clean looking. I'm assuming it's not seen salt before?
  13. That is absolutely FANTASTIC. I was impressed with you managing to find the unicorn status van back in 2016. The work done to this trooper is massively heartwarming too. I love the fact you drove it when it was a dealership car and that's it's now the oldest Pride left. What a special little car.
