  1. Some good news on the Cortina, listed it on eBay as a classified ad at £5k and had someone send a deposit with aims to collect on Saturday...
  2. I'm pretty much ready for tomorrow, if anyone wants to razz around on the scooter let me know.
  3. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/403680166243?hash=item5dfd368163:g:pHwAAOSw25NiaWLX He's welcome to go and buy a left hand drive saloon for £4k. Or a "barn find" estate for £3350. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1983-Ford-Cortina-Crusader-1-6-Petrol-Manual-Estate-RARE-CLASSIC-BARN-FIND-/155010010847?hash=item2417510edf%3Ag%3AzmQAAOSwm3tiO4q7&nma=true&si=VMBCHgaAvKiHYIaT1psfywcsGtM%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  4. Some more messages from the guy who asked a million questions before hitting me with that best price pish.
  5. I'm not sure what this guy was expecting to prove by sending me a link to his website. As it turns out I'd dealt with them before selling my 244 to them which they flipped the next week for a tidy profit after writing a lengthy description full of lies and photographing it at a posh house that they don't actually own but use it for staging their adverts. Funnily enough once the guy figured out I knew who he was he lost all interest in the car.
  6. Some more progress made on the old LDV Pilot. The passenger side step was in much better shape than the other side with only a couple of patches required. It's a pity the rest of the sill on this side is full of holes.
  7. Picked this up yesterday, it's quite a nice looking car but not sure it's really me. I might see if my dad wants it for a bit then raffle it before the end of summer.
  8. I don't desperately need or want rid of it which is why I'm happy to tell most of the best price brigade to do one. It's currently in the garage having the gearbox changed so maybe after that I'll end up keeping it for a while longer and ruining it some more.
  9. From car and classic, cunt wanted photos of the service history so sent him that plus a link to photos of every single bit of rust on the car. Then he comes back with this. Best price??? Oh do fuck off. I'm not going to begin answering his fucking questions.
  10. 19th of June at 11am, vintage bus museum near Dunfermline.
  11. Had a missed call about the Cortina so called back on Saturday and spoke for a while, I busy Sunday morning but would be free in the afternoon. Guy goes in a huff when I try to make arrangements for him to see the car. I'm just glad I never rearranged my plans to suit him because no doubt he'd have wasted my time.
  12. But it's a 1 lady owner car (plus current owner) and on 76k so must be worth loads! I like how he also deliberately didn't send any photos with the reg clearly visible either.
  13. Would I swap my A3 TDI Quattro for a 1.6 petrol A3? Good one mate... Another one for the Audi... Then the cunt stops replying. Weirdo.
  14. I'm now braving gumtree with the Cortina...
  15. You've hit the nail on the head there. My friend messaged me after I posted the screenshots on FB and the guy is quite well known in Ford circles as a time waster who wants everything for nothing. I just wish he could have asked my best price from the start so I could end the conversation without having hours of my time wasted by his mate. His mate did comment on what a straight car it was and how surprised he was with how clean it is underneath. I've sold enough cars online to know when it's best to just stop contact with these twats.
