DVee8 reacted to bunglebus in Lemon Lupo - wiped out
She passed. Really proud of her, despite there being a huge amount of stress on her at the moment due to a family situation, her car going wrong the morning of her test, driving a car she doesn't like that she hasn't been in since September, pouring rain, heavy traffic and that she only has good sight in one eye, she passed with only a few minors. And the instructors car decided that was a good time to have the heated rear window fail!

DVee8 reacted to matara in Aussie Peugeot 205 Si base spec --> 205 Rallyeshite replica - Father & Son project
My 12 year old son Zacky is keen on learning to drive and doesn't want to wait another 4 years until he can do on the road (here in Sydney, Aus). So we have decided to get involved in doing Motorkhana events in the Junior class which he can start doing from 12 years old. A motorkhana is a tarmac event that is a timed drive around a coned course on private land. So we looked for the cheapest way of doing this and have bought an Aussie/Japan only market spec base Peugeot 205 Si. This is a 1.6i model but pretty similar to a 205XS.
We intend to transform it from a base spec 205 to an imposter spec 205 Rallye with the aid of some steel wheels, a sticker kit and a cherry bomb exhaust.
The car we bought has had some competition use in Khanacross ( the next stage on from Motorkhana, but on gravel/off road and high speeds), so it's already 0.5 Colin McRae spec already
being 30 years old this year means we can put it on Historic Registration which means for $50 / 20 quid we can have it insured/taxed and drive it on the road to/from events and up to 60 days personal per year, so we are doing it cheap.
Will post up some event photos here as there is a lot of other shite spec cars in the field.
Here is our Aussie base spec!
And here is the goal:-
And here is our Si doing some Khanacross in Melbourne Victora by the prior owner:-
Car is currently in transit between Melbourne and Sydney (1000kms) and should be here later this week. We already have our order in on these:-

DVee8 reacted to Mrs Spart in Mrs Sparts MG diary.
So the guy doing the service and front brakes called up... "Bring it over" he says!😀
It started again, first time @Mally🥲!!!
So happy, yet saddening to know that @spartacusisn't here to witness this.
10 (very cautious!) miles later I drove it to the garage... For a Service and new front brakes.
Thank you @Mally! I am so so SO over the f#cking moon with this... To know that C@#t (aka "Tim") is home AND working is unbelievable, I only wish that @spartacuswas here to witness this.
(BTW Doug was dead impressed it was all down to the motor arm... Well spotted @Mally👌🏽👍🏽)
DVee8 got a reaction from ProgRocker in Top Gear tonight - dad's cars :)
My dad died when I was 4, but I remember/was told about a MK1 Ford Escort estate and a Austin Maxi.
My mother met someone else a few years later, he had a 1973 Opel Kaddet,
followed by a 1977 Opel Kaddet
followed by a 1980 Opel Kadett
Then a 1982 Nissan Bluebird
His last car that he had, he gave to me was a Austin Maestro VP
All bought from the same garage

I get to bring this back today.
Ram CLASSIC BASE.
It has an options list that's very short.
Vinyl seats, steel wheels, unpainted plastic bumpers, rubber mats, switch blanks, the lot. It's even last year's model (hence Classic).
It does have a bed protector and side steps. I think those are the only options.
