  1. I seem to remember in The Pilot episode Makepeace had a red Mini that got flipped onto its roof by ruffians, The next episode She had a black Mini that ended up in a scrapyard crusher with both heroes inside. Their Governor (Spikings) had a Mk 2 Granada.
  2. The same obviously applies to Rear engine Skodas; I looked at an immaculate one owner from new Estelle in 1993 for peanuts and got a bank loan on a truly horrible Orion instead. I could have bought the Skoda outright but borrowed money for the "Superior" Ford instead. ps The Estelle would probably be running today with basic TLC, The Ford rotted away before I was half way through paying it off. pps Buy the best example of an unpopular car, look after it and You'll never lose in the long term.
  3. An instant response to sensible questions from August this year. Congratulations on winning Autoshite.
  4. You always remember you're first, vehicle or sexual experience Try to guide him to less dangerous memories Safer options exist in the form of a C1/07/G0 Panda/Picanto flavour but then I never listened to sensible advice when I started driving and my £200 Cortina is a treasured memory of30 years ago..... Find a decent solid example and fix any mechanical issues as they arise, It will build character.
  5. Rumour is it belongs to a local chap whose owned it for years but it is just a rumour, can't understand why you'd just leave it when Cartakeback would give you something for it
  6. Been sat outside my Mates front door for seven months now. Untaxed since June 2016 apparently MOT expired last April
  7. Good God The pineapple roof rack and Iron cross might be an improvement for once!
  8. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201910113201405?price-to=2500&postcode=la97et&advertising-location=at_cars&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&sort=distance&minimum-badge-engine-size=2.4&radius=1500&page=1 Not sure if this has been posted already But £495 for a Renault 25 "Limousine" with a knackered transmission
  9. Never imagined a system more difficult to negotiate than the UK model. Best of luck buying something you want with money you have and staying out of Prison; all at the same time
  10. Thanks all for your good wishes Much appreciated and genuinely helpful I wasn't going to post on here about what happened but last night just started typing and am glad I Did. I am crap at communicating and am trying to be better at it The Tell me Show me Describe idea has really helped, Deep down I'm a bit Who What Why When etc and it doesn't help with anything non mechanical, I will look at things differently from now on. Whilst I never really got on with My Brother I am going to miss him but just wish He was easier to like I mean He could have tried to help Himself, Family tried Work tried Social Services all did their best but He wouldn't accept help unless it was in the form of money to drink and gamble We reckon a conservative estimate of his losses over 25 years is around £200k Guilt and anger are a big part of our lives at the moment I see that now Thanks again to everyone who helped I'm in a much better place than I was 24 hours ago and will try to pass that on to the rest of the Family. This place etc
  11. 8 Days ago My Brother took his own life after many years of threatening to do so. He left a Wife, Two Children and our Dad to deal with the aftermath of his lies drinking and gambling. I'm glad to see the back of the Useless Twat but by God trying to make sense of things is beyond Me; not so much for me but for those He chose to leave behind is difficult. I haven't got Children and never wanted them so have literally no idea what to say to my Niece (14) and Nephew (12) As for My Dad, who will be burying His Eldest Son next week; I can be of no practical help at all' .God knows I've tried but how can I possibly know how everyone else is feeling?
  12. If both cars were brand new I'd probably say the Starlet had more going for it. In 2019 I'd say a good Micra 1.0 was a much better prospect than a totally shagg**d/neglected Starlet but maybe I'm missing the point entirely.
  13. I'm pretty sure the wiring in the boot is from a Taxi roof sign or "bubble" as they were known as when I tried to earn a living as a Cab Driver in the late 90's when 218's were the unobtainable dream of very inexperienced Owner Drivers of Montego 2.0's such as myself. If Sky one make a second series of Curfew I reckon your car will take centre stage in every scene. Hope it lives for many years to come, it deserves to be immortal.
  14. Britisher Architect.............................................. Sorry you have to be a certain age and have had a very boring childhood to have the faintest idea what I'm on about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ-DEi1LP50
  15. To a man used to "Taxing" a 7.5 litre V8 for free any kind of monetary payment is bound to sting initially Seriously though Eddy, glad to see you behind the wheel again; Will you be bringing the C3 to Grange in summer??
