  1. The Karaboat is amazing. Took me a moment to figure out 'River De Chester' though. Have watched the Youtube of it going at a hell of a lick down the river but think on balance I'll pass.
  2. I’ll be hanging on to our V70 as long as possible.T5 Jap import with (ahem) powershift. Already replaced that of course. Shame but folks want SUVs right now so here we are.
  3. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/6770178456360534/ Looking for something else and this appeared. £16k mind you.
  4. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/134641904745?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=fasbjdpnsr2&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Currently at £380. Bit crispy but I’m excited and it’s local. Ah “Bought to clean up and put an engine in it but don’t have the time” I believe you m8 thousands wouldn’t.
  5. That’s amazingly good. Many thanks for posting the pic.
  6. Not one pic with the hatch shut which (had it looked decent) I’d be keen to share and the final nail in the coffin for me in any description; ‘I have been totally honest’ which is just what a bullshitter would say. Can’t stop looking at it though….
  7. Without a doubt. ‘Lounge Leather’ no less. Suit the car quite well I think.
  8. Funny you should start this thread as the same thing has been on my mind. I need a more practical car so am thinking of selling my Saab floppy top and this is a short walk from me (sorry for the distant pic). Out of MOT for 8 months and sat on 4 flat tyres. As mentioned here, with no MOT I consider it to be scrap value plus small goodwill payment if pressed. Don’t really want to knock the chap’s door so likely will stick a note through.
  9. ‘Be warned I am not selling this car to just anyone, you will have to put a good case’ Great Volvo in its own way but he seems like a bit of a fruitcake. I always sold to whoever turned up with the right amount of money.
  10. https://www.johnpye.co.uk/auctions/on-behalf-of-our-clients-tender-auction-of-a-boat-bespoke-trailer-iveco-truck/?ct=t(EFLBusinessAssets060521BAContacts_COPY_01) "Goblin Girl" Insert joke here... For sale by tender from the Nottingham site. What manchild wouldn't want this? I can't stop staring at it. Unfortunately, it’s sans keys, V5, MOT, boat engine and ancillaries. I can see VOSA getting well interested in GVW too on your first trip to Skeggy.
  11. By coincidence, about the same time Dirk Diggler posted the the Volvo 340 above, a friend in Exeter sent me this; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/265139992430?hash=item3dbb93376e:g:kDMAAOSw81ZgiEGY It's in Cornwall so for him is actually viable. My friends dad had a few of these when we were yoofs and my lasting memory is that his dad was a damn sight better driver than either of us.
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-240-Pick-Up-V8-Rover-engine-Chopped-roof-Hot-Rod-Professional-Build/274753403911?hash=item3ff8943c07:g:MFIAAOSwVu1gSn76 Must be loads of BMW V8s that could be used but people won't leave that old Rover lump alone.
  13. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-480-Turbo-Nothing-more-needs-to-be-said/284258585965?hash=item422f21cd6d:g:HncAAOSwy6Zf-sBz My folks got through 2 ESs and a turbo back in the day and I always had a soft spot for them. Lot of hyperbole in this ad but looks tidy.
  14. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Audi-rs4-b7-avant/114611263196?hash=item1aaf5d16dc:g:8-oAAOSw-4Bfje4O I'm pretty sure that there's a thread all of it's own on this subject but a mate and I were chewing over what you could spend £15k on, stick in storage with light maintenance every few months and double your money in 10 years. Could this be it? I'd want to rag it around too much so no good for me.
  15. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lamborghini-Espada-Series-2/163802343260?hash=item262361675c:g:scsAAOSw~ZpdRLWy Best part of £200k, let's get that out of the way. A friend's dad had one of these in the late 80's / early nineties, I think he traded an Interceptor for it but I reckon it was a £30k car max back then. I recall exposed alan bolts holding the dash together but it was a truly special car and the rows of Dellorto carbs were a wonder to behold. Regretfully, it was destroyed in a garage fire and it appears that my chances of ever getting one are becoming more and more remote.
  16. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/STUNNING-1978-VOLVO-244DL-JUST-38000-MILES-FABULOUS-CONDITION/203232007843?hash=item2f519256a3:g:meoAAOSw31Jf6JtX Optimistically priced at a fiver under £11k but this is pretty special.
  17. And the very next day I see on Twitter, WM motorway police pull someone with a dodgy Italian licence bought online. Probably more of this going on than you’d think.
  18. Parked up with a load of chod near a football club in Fazeley near Tamworth. No idea what’s going on here though.
  19. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402366261588 Link above. I missed out on one of these years ago when my insurance company thought I was speaking in tongues. On the watch list and may well throw a bid in.
  20. And most shocking of all. Alan in that picture is just 24 years old.
  21. I like that Paseo and if it were closer to home I’d throw a bid in and admit it to Mrs DF later. Don’t think it’s JDM though as it fits regular UK plates okay. I really want a Sera in my life but I could be happy with this.
  22. Only 2 pics as well. Left me wanting more! The write up is a bit odd, it has new callipers but needs new ‘breaks’. And what’s a ‘New port hole for the sunroof over flow’ all about? Seller won’t shut about the bonnet either. Obvs.
  23. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LHD-1993-CHEVROLET-GMC-SAFARI-AUTO-4X4-DAY-VAN-CAMPER-7-SEATER-SALVAGE-DAMAGED/274364707302?hash=item3fe16931e6:g:ZokAAOSwtZFeu88H Cat S day van on the piss Interior makes up for things though. Digital dash too.
  24. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-ASTRA-GTE-GUN-METAL-GREY-1-START-NO-RESERVE/154006572134?hash=item23db81cc66:g:84kAAOSwJrpfDKwu No reserve but...
