    SambaS got a reaction from 500tops in 1980s Dacia Duster / Aro 10   
    Hey everyone, who is up for a share in the Duster?
     
    I propose 4 ways at £100 each.
     
    If anyone is interested but not in keeping a share the rest will buy them out equally.
     
    Done this before with the 125P
     
    I think it's a safe bet with Autoshite people.
     
    I can store it.
     
    Just a suggestion who's in?
     
    Please no "I would if I have the money" or any of the usual, if you have £100 spare within the next 8 days (TODAY NOW IT HAS BEEN AMENDED< STRANGE....) and are up for it please speak up.

    I should probably introduce my 24012...
    Known as the Moskvitch Aleko.
    The 20142 was built here in Bulgaria and the additional 2 on the end donates an actual Moskvitch engine opposed to the usual Lada lump.
    Bought it from an old dear in Pleven, and the car buying process here is such a pain I dont actually own ten cars here yet. In fact it put me right off! You and the seller have to go to a Notary with all the correct documents, in the case of this sale the seller didn't and had to visit the town hall three times!
    After the Notary draws up the sale and you pay the taxes and (lie about the sale price) Notary fee you are . Tired. And free to spend another day registering your car at KAT... your local traffic police station. Here you get a Talon (V5) and if you want local number plates. Up until recently this was a must, but I kept the EH Pleven number plate cause ... well...  tight. Or I like the EH. Then insurance, then vignette, then village tax
    It behaved well until it stopped behaving well after 4 weeks. I took it to Romania with my parents which it didn't like. And the border officials were not impressed as they had to push start us into Romania. It made it back just but then died in Vidin.
    In some order new plugs, brand new carburettor and a coil side rewire and new alternator the thing has been okay since apart from a gypsy stole it one night when we were drinkng and burned the clutch out then pushed it back onto my drive and pretended nothing happened.

    One of the many times it was on the ramps last summer. Lucky for me the son of garage owner speaks perfect English. And despite everyone's warning I find them to be honest and reasonable. People are nervous when I try do things for myself here cause its usual to think English are rich and thus hike up prices.

    One UK market Duster has survived in .... Murmansk. Apparently imported in around 1990 by a local sailor. Seems to be in nice nick too.

    Toyying with the idea
    of buying this as it fairly local for £175

    As we know my old blue Duster was sold many moons ago and recently photographed outside of a commercial building so can't be doing it much good in the rain. Regret is a thing from which I suffer but have to keep moving forward!

    I'm gonna get my gypsy friend to call the bloke at the weekend and ask if it has documents. That's the first hurdle.
     
    If it does have documents then I've no excuse really not to then try find a bloke to trailer it home.
     
    If both those things come together I'll send some photos of it at my house. Or in the local river. Of Full of gypsies. Its a fun life here in BG
