  1. That also sounds ambitious to me. I seem to remember the Maestro & Montego could do the best part of 60 mpg but they had DI engines and were flyweights. I also suspect 'real world' mpg figures were surprisingly good back then was that as vehicles were underpowered back then compared to 'moderns' they couldn't be driven so wastefully and inefficiently as everybody seems to now where the right foot is either 'on' or 'off'.
  2. I want that just to reg-match my old one...
  3. Anyone know what the 'Iveco Acco' is?
  4. I know where I've seen that before
  5. Nobody will be buying at this price point but I do love the decals on this. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/353686935120?hash=item5259625650:g:7FkAAOSwGi9hM2u1
  6. In Bulgaria not even Google can escape the police... https://www.google.com/maps/@41.5252096,26.1154807,3a,22.3y,100.32h,81.42t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1si6zpXL59p5OeXgfofbhKXw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
  7. Never seen one looking like this before, thought us Europeans were getting forward control variants by 2004. Speedo though is in the telltale import kms https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/334161388817?hash=item4dcd922511:g:Dp0AAOSwRtxhUG-k
  8. Ambitious pricing but father_WSE still says his 21 was the best car he ever owned. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154619133381?hash=item240004bdc5:g:yikAAOSwxJBhSN2i
  9. Where's the door handle on a Renault Magnum?
  10. Cheap low miles SAAB awaiting rescue. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/185067653044?hash=item2b16e447b4:g:6d0AAOSwsYFhTKj8
  11. It's got cop tyres, cop suspension, cop shocks but sadly just a stock gearbox.
  12. You can now buy a BAZ truck and S400 missile system in bouncy castle form.
  13. Plenty of these probably coming up on eBay's Afghanistan site right now: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/165073011623?hash=item266f1e43a7:g:RTAAAOSwicthJDas
  14. Interestingly it looks like the old LDV/Daewoo design has finally been withdrawn from UK sale. 'Maxus' is now offering the latest result of industrial espionage, this week's victim being the Ford Transit:
  15. The cars that may appear to be deprecating are probably those that are better placed to ride out the current bubble. The van craze may well die out when everybody goes back to work and realises life on the road is generally pretty shit outside of Instagram. The 80s hot stuff market has gone crazy, but these are generally badly made and often ugly cars with fairly crap performance. An E-Type is an eternal, a lowered Ford with some stickers on it is not. In terms of the AS cars bubble there are cars I fancy which have been up for sale for literally years now - one day the sellers will have to realise their losses. Things like the MGB will have a steady market - probably not appreciating much but also most likely not depreciating, there will always be men in their 50s with some spare cash and spare weekends wanting one.
  16. My local charity shop appears to be expanding into the motor trade.
  17. Is there any reason why some Wrights of that era had the centre pair of lights missing? I remember traveling on Travel West Midlands's B10L Wrights - another oddity in what at the time was the strangest fleet in the country. O405s anyone?
  18. Book your winter holiday to Morocco. Cheap flights and COVID-easy local rules. Definitely the most Autoshitey country I've ever been to, mainly French stuff but Merc taxis are popular.
  19. Were they longitudinal FWD like Passat / Saab 900? Just Googled the Renault 21, looked like you could get engines in both L/T configurations?!
  20. Give it a polish and flip it for at least double what it's up for.
  21. Didn't sell when recently up for £5k, starting bid is now 2.5 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/284448010968?hash=item423a6c32d8:g:4K4AAOSwsR9hJPKF
  22. There is! Click top left ish to view historical imagery, providing there is some. Here is my Grandad back in 2016.
