  1. We could clear a space for the galaxies at the unit, it's unlikely it would be fucked with here.
  2. Bad news on the mot, my Camry failed on Friday. A good few bits of welding, new cat, rear shock and some bushes required.
  3. Had a few messages from traders lately asking about selling their wares at the car meet. I've had various catering people contact me, a toy car trader and a bouncy castle hire company who said they could provide a 30ft inflatable slide, bouncy castle and rodeo machine. I would have thought traders would be put off by an event called Shite in the park but nobody seems particularly bothered. I'm not sure how well any of this shit would go down with the bus museum so probably best to give them a miss.
  4. It's cheap but I'm just trying to get back what it owes me to make way for a little jawa moped. I tried great fun on small bikes but got the usual "too far away" comments. If I had any sense I'd buy the bits to get it going and relist it for more as a runner but don't really have the space/time if this other moped arrives this week. £600 for this little jawa that's running and roadworthy doesn't quite make my Puch look as much of a bargain.
  5. You're either interested or you're not. Chances of buying it? No chance.
  6. The calendar generally consists of forum members cars rather than shite we've spotted.
  7. I was clearing out a bunch of tat from my spare room recently. I advertised everything for free and also delivered everything locally for free. Everyone I gave stuff to genuinely seemed thankful which was nice but delivering the items just made it so much easier instead of waiting at home for people not to turn up.
  8. I've not sold anything in a while so almost missing the daft messages from morons... I did raffle quite a few cars recently which sold out very quickly (hours) at £20 a go. The only one that didn't do very well was the Impreza, I made back what it owed me in ticket sales at £1k so I just gave the rest of the tickets away and Ged ended up winning it. I might end up buying it back from him soon. I made a £430 profit on the 309, the 306 I took in a swap for the unsellable A3 TDI Quattro so even getting £1180 for raffling it I was still losing on all the money I'd thrown at the Audi. The red 205 I made £300, raffled it on the same night I'd bought it. The green 205 I made £680. Not bad at all and most of the winners were happy with their new piles of shit.
  9. Just a reminder that this is happening on Sunday. Planning on having a bunch of shite in attendance including a 305, 309, 504 and 505. Might also bring a few bikes to play around on.
  10. I know I shouldn't have given the extra compensation but the guy was hassling me relentlessly and I just wanted to get him off my back. I know he was trying all of the tactics to get me to sell it but him having my address and being adamant that he was on his way with his dad and uncle and being reluctant to give me his details to return the deposit I thought a generous amount of compensation might shut him the fuck up.
  11. Today it was my turn to inconvenience someone. Someone saw a photo of the blue Simson I picked up on Tuesday and decided they had to have it. I really didn't want to sell it but the guy just kept chipping away at me until I gave in and agreed a price. He insisted on sending a deposit and sent £100. I took the bike out earlier and decided I'd made a mistake agreeing to sell it so messaged the buyer to apologise and say I'd changed my mind. He gave me a load of grief over the phone saying he was on his way (even though he wasn't due to leave until 1.5 hours later) He said he'd taken out a loan and had already insured it. He kept phoning me from his mobile and a landline and messaging saying he'd left a deposit and I couldn't go back on it, the bike was his etc. He wouldn't give me the details to return the deposit to so I offered £200 compensation for the inconvenience which he agreed to then hounded me to send it. I transferred it and instantly received a call from the RBS fraud department saying his account had been flagged for being involved in fraudulent activity and had to go through a bunch of bullshit in order to approve the transaction. It would have been less stressful just selling him the bloody thing. I know the disappointment of sending a deposit for something and the seller then selling it to someone else. In my case I just asked for my deposit to be returned without causing any drama but this guy has been harassing me over the last couple of days, hassling me to sell him the bike then becoming aggressive when I'd changed my mind. I thought it was best just to be honest but maybe it would have been easier to lie and make up some excuse like sorry mate it's been nicked or something along those lines.
  12. It would be fun to make a gta 1 style video with the drone.
  13. Not even selling anything when I get this message to my retroshite Facebook page. Aye mate, just come and take all my cars away for fuck all.
  14. Impressive work on the mini pickup, the owner is a welder at my work
  15. Certainly an eclectic mix of shite in attendance. I didn't get to stand around talking shite as much as I'd have liked to, between directing traffic and taking photos I didn't have a lot of time for anything else. People seemed to be enjoying the meet which is what's important.
  16. Ah cool, I'd been looking for wheels for my Corolla estate and with nothing suitable coming up for sale I was kicking myself for selling those gold numbers! Next meet is on tomorrow, I know it's a fair trek for you but you're always welcome to come down and play with whatever I have lying around.
  17. What happened to the gold wheels on the Mazda?
