    panhard65 got a reaction from Dyslexic Viking in Car museum pics - Dezerland   
    Michael Dezer went on a bit of a buying spree about 15 years ago. He bought up loads of mundane rare cars in the UK including my Simca Aronde. He bought it through ebay and I thought it was a wind up until the truck arrived. The transport company had been working for him full time just picking up crap he had bought. I did see a picture of my car out there some years ago as his collection wasn't a proper museum at the time and everything was for sale. First 2 pictures are of it in L.A the second two are from when I owned it after buying it from a Lady who used to race at the Le Mans classic

    panhard65 got a reaction from Low Horatio gearbox in Base Model Hearses   
    Here is my old hearse a nicholson with a little 2.3 v6 and manual transmission. It certainly was a low spec one when new


    That mk1 granada belongs to sandra who runs the classic hearse club and the ambassador is her partners. I collected the ambassador from London for them when it came out of service. They are a great fun club the hearse club we used to have a great laugh with my one which was named Geoff one year whilst at Le Mans. I have lost a lot of old photo's now but I did have him on the circuit when we were there some years ago

    panhard65 got a reaction from Steviemillar in eBay tat volume 3.   
    That is totally wrong importing from Europe is harder now but as it is over 30 years old it comes in as a historic vehicle with zero duty and 5 % vat. All you have to do once it gets here is ring HMRC they will ask you to email copies of the registration paperwork and a copy on the invoice. A couple of hours later they email back with a calculated figure for the vat and if you are happy with that just ring them up and pay over the phone. It took me about 3 hours to get the NOVA sorted on a Spanish import. Modern cars get hit with the 10% duty plus 20% vat. It really is simple the DVLA on the other had are a frigging nightmare at the moment randomly sending paperwork back once it has sat on their desk for too long.

    It really depends how deep you want to go with diagnostics. The cheap OBD readers will mainly do just engine same with a lot of the bluetooth aps so not worth bothering with if you want to do ABS and airbags. The Autell one doesn't look bad but you might be better off trying to find a good used Launch X431. Either a proper UK version or one that has been updated to UK spec. The hooky chinese copies don't work very well but a properly updated launch is far better than the Snap on and Sykes crap of the same era.

    panhard65 got a reaction from Coprolalia in Brownnova’s spots! A periodically updated thread of pictures of interesting motor cars. In the wild spots: A hoard of local honeys.   
    That 17 has been sitting outside in that yard for at least 10 years. It has been moved around a bit though as the last few times I have been past I didn't spot it. The lane it is on is easy enough to get a trailer down but I would be surprised if they would sell it at a sensible price and even more surprised if it was saveable.

    panhard65 got a reaction from Jerzy Woking in Oh You Lucky People....   
    The easy answer is I got lucky buying my first one as all the seller wanted was a copy of my passport. The second one wasn't as easy as the car had no ITV. I had a bit of grief from the Spanish police at the port and never received the original paperwork which made UK registration difficult. I have just bought a Dodge 3700GT in Ourense it wasn't easy but the transport company are sorting all the paperwork including the UK NOVA. They are charging 200 euro for sorting it though. It is cheaper and easier to import from pretty much anywhere else but if you want something Spanish market only then there isn't much choice. One thing I found is the Spanish will not haggle the price they advertise is the price they will accept no haggling.

    I don't bother posting here any more but what a load of bollocks. That will sell for a grand plus all day long no matter what is wrong with it. The brakes are not some amazing mystical thing just citroen inspired and really not hard. Just fix them properly and forget fitting other parts these fuckers weigh 2 and a half ton and have 4 calipers on the front alone.  The list on the rear is likely to be rear trailing arms rotting through which you can get repair parts for. They do have the ability to suck up large amounts of cash if you have to pay "specialists" Try the Aussie RR clubs as they have lists for alternative cheaper parts that just tends not to be available in the uk. They are lovely old things and well worth owning one just once. Ignore all the idiots grow some balls and get it bought
