  1. Still got this. Needed a tyre for the MOT. Boring but economical. I really should go out and buy a V8 to restore balance.
  2. Yes. I can definitely see you in that. Well bought....... You mad bugger!
  3. Jubilee street party. We clubbed together with friends and booked a table at our local event. I suppose it was inevitable that our table should have been where a Renault Kangoo had been abandoned!

    I just had to look twice, I thought the orange coat tosspot was me. ( not this time).
  5. The Fiesta 1.4 D I bought from here in January has achieved an average of just over 60 mpg for the first 3000 miles of mostly A road commuting.
  6. Interesting thread. Especially where the world is with A series engines these days. I last had an 'A' powered car at the end of the 80s, when anything other than genuine Cooper S parts, were both cheap and plentiful!
  7. Your glowing endorsement might have put one of these on my radar.
  8. Touché. I will pull the radio if it comes to it. Actually I am going to have a fiddle with it to see if I can coax in to further service, but the spectre of hgf is lurking in the background.
  9. Expired in Waitrose car park with (I think) an ignition fault, however it has developed such a voracious appetite for coolant, I decided it was borrowing time.
  10. Remember this? I won this lovely saab in a roffle a few months ago. Since then it's been my daily drive. And it's been great. Until today. Sad times. Anyone got a car for sale? Oh, and happy new year.
  11. I'm glad I had the opportunity to own an Escort 1300e at the £500 price point. With the greatest of respect to the Ford pervs, I enjoyed it but wouldn't even now spend much more on one.
  12. Hello. Honiton is just down the road from me. Glad to help if I can, although I don't claim to be an expert. Feel free to pm me.
  13. Leyland Road Runner. Maestro headlamps and indicators. Also the cab rear pressing was shared with the Sherpa 400 series pick up cab (designed from the outset for use on both).
  14. I've been rummaging in the attic. Spotted 20 years ago on holiday in France.
  15. Nice purchase. I owned a B3 Audi 80 for a couple of years that I really enjoyed. I'd love one like yours.
  16. Yes Please. Nice Audi you've got there!
  17. Mrs h used to work in a small business that always sent post with loads of vintage stamps. ISTR the owner used to buy them in bulk. The downside was she was always rummaging to get as near as possible to the correct stamp value.
  18. I think it was @simon8201 who noticed! I was too busy snatching the keys! Tossa-Del-Mar sticker is intact, if I ever feel the need to peel it off, you have first refusal.
  19. Remember this? My roffle win Saab 900. Courtesy of @Minimad5 It's not perfect, but I bloomin' love it. In the last month I've done about a thousand miles with no real issues. I've reinstated the rear wiper as the motor and wiper itself were MIA. @simon8201 has helped me out sourcing a leather steering wheel from a 9-3 to replace the rather worn original. Fingers crossed that'll be swapped tomorrow!
  20. Said goodbye to this today, a friend is having it for his 18 year old daughter to learn to drive in.
  21. When I had mine I found the same. My research found plenty of German web forums moaning about the same too. I managed to find a middle section on Ebay. The rear section is as near as dammit the same as the 2.0 exhaust which is (or was) available.

    That is nice. I quite fancy pottering around in a lupo for a bit. It'd be perfect if it had a webasto.
  23. @Minimad5 N/S front looks fine. All good. Thanks once again for the full tank of fuel.
