  1. That is outstanding, you've done it again. Fancy a week's swap with a slightly dog-eared Puma?
  2. Nice to see one still about - ironically, the layers of terrible paint have probably saved it from rotting away.
  3. What a superb find, that must be a super late one too.
  4. Also a candidate for the cars you've never heard of thread, a Toyota Veranti. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/419959186952582
  5. Great to see the Carlton now running - was it just that leaky pipe that needed sorting in the end? I reckon it would have gone last time but I stopped when I could smell stale petrol! Hopefully the smoke will clear once it's been run for a bit, unless it has other issues. It's a smart old thing, dents aside, and deserves to go again.
  6. Impressively clean Felicia that's turned up near me. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/365631179055202/ Bonus possible Ital in the background.
  7. Excellent news on the Rover, well done! Thanks again to @Six-cylinder for hosting an excellent weekend, great to catch up with old and new faces. Can't say for sure if it was better than before, but it was fairly honking inside. Slightly better after being aired out for an hour or so.
  8. @andyberg spotted another one, a fancy 2200, off the road for 22 years. WHT 860T.
  9. Good spot, I'm sad enough I Googled the Princess reg to see if it'd come up in Vulgalour's wedgister, which it doesn't appear to have. Did find this though...https://www.flickr.com/photos/67147237@N03/38765784481/ Land Rover's plate has lost one of its digits.
  10. I'd tentatively suggest that the car looks better in L trim without the vinyl and brightwork cluttering it up.
  11. Good to see it out and about, I see it acquired an MOT in November last year so it's obviously being well cared for. I believe it lives in Kent now, the guy I sold it to drove it home from Devon and as far as I know it got there OK, he was very excited about it.
  12. Back in about 2005, a local used car dealer, now long gone, who'd taken my Fiesta back in for repair loaned me the only thing they had spare, a very shabby Peugeot 309 GTi which I guess had been taken as a trade-in and at that time, a worthless old nail. It was very saggy, had a blown exhaust, didn't want to start or idle when cold, the passenger door dropped when opened and it was a bastard to drive smoothly in traffic. Hilarious fun though, still fast and I was a little sad to hand it back - looking back, knowing now that garage's reputation, entirely possible it didn't have an MOT.
  13. The 25 Commerce van that started this thread is still around, it seems, although hasn't actually been anywhere in quite some time. Last spotted in 2017. Currently SORN and MOT has run out but not gone yet.
  14. Yes - I had to do this with my Transit when I discovered it was rated at 4500kg. I highly recommend SV Tech - http://www.svtech.co.uk/our-services/downplating/ - they will, for £120 +VAT, handle the process, provide you with help, info and relevant paperwork and provide you with a new VIN plate to put alongside the old one. There is a way to do it yourself I believe but for the amount of confusion and hassle involved, I thought it was money very well spent and I was able to be confident it was 100% correctly done as well. Excellent work on this as always!
