Rank: Matra Rancho towing a Tagora

Rank: Matra Rancho towing a Tagora (12/12)



  1. Tamworth railway station has too many steps. Car looks fantastic. Are roffle prizes not meant to be terrible? I'm not sure you're playing the game correctly. But you're winning.
  2. Tell them to take all the spark plugs out, spray a load of wd40 in all the holes, then turn it over for 20 seconds. They can look for the nozzle thingy later after its shot out and bounced of three walls and the ceiling. You've nothing to lose but your inhibitions about potential engine damage.
  3. Fair travels brave collectioneer.
  4. Did they make them in any colour other than silver? I'm currently managing the Ex @Peter C and @Agila w210 saloon. I really like it. Check back in February after the MOT to see if my opinion suddenly changes. The well documented rust probabilities aside, they FEEL solid and well put together. Almost like a high end Toyota or Lexus.
  5. That's not gone far. Good buy man. You're cornering the market.
  6. This shouldn't be funny but the mental picture it evokes is very slap-stick.
  7. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/mercedes-c220-cdi-/313696248822?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m2548.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0 One photograph. £1500.
  8. Absolutely Van-tastic. Something that has all but disappeared from the UK roads. Well saved.
  9. It doesn't sound massively bad man. I still think you've done well, and done a great service to shite-hood taking it on.
  10. I think he has you know. But he probably hasn't. He seems like the sort but it's hard to say.
  11. Floors not really flat enough to warrant taking the seats out. There's a decent amount of room with them folded really. Unless you want to build a little plywood floor or something. When I picked it up from Stanky and drove it up from the south coast I was very impressed with how it felt as a long distance motorway car. Odd as that must be the exact opposite of what they were designed for. Great little cars anyway. And very well bought man.
  12. I always enjoyed driving that car. Even though it was french. Glad someone is finally fixing the fuel cap release cable. I certainly couldn't be arsed to.
