  1. Scrap has been worthless for weeks now - it's starting to creep back up I believe. If scrap value of a crusty Mazda is more than £50 at the moment I'd be surprised.
  2. Just seen this shared from the Practical Classics Facebook page... Not sure where they mean by 'central' Scotland - but if anyone is desperately keen and I can help with my trailer, I will!

    Morris 1300

    I bought it for £60 in 2007, when I was 16, and used it as my daily from 18 til I was 21. It keeps getting bumped back in the queue for time and money sorting it, as I've had a steady procession of bigger and more expensive chod since then. It's in a friend's garage and I really ought to recover it. https://www.irishvintagescene.ie/introducing-the-fleet/

    Morris 1300

    I love that! I still have my first car squirreled away, a 1964 Austin 1100. The trumpets and rear arches are pretty sketchy, but I went through all the heartache with sills and subframe mounts a few years ago. They're tremendous fun!
  5. Saw an original Range Rover home brew pickup driving out of Barrow during the week. I'll endeavour to snap it if I see it again. Mr. Ramrod may know it?
  6. Maurice Roddy was my guess! Hes around Dundalk, one half of Roddy and Rice Renault there. Not sure if it's still going but he had quite a collection of old Renners, and that parts haul looks like one assembled by someone who owns a parts desk! My uncle with the R16 (who sold his R20TX to someone on here last year) knows him.
  7. I think this might be my most obscure one...
  8. Selector rings and sensors are known to go bad too, it's well worth finding what the fault is before playing parts darts with these. The rings can crack, and can be checked carefully with the abs sensors pulled and slowly turn the hubs peeping through the holes for any cracks.
  9. Well bought! Hope you're making progress with the Stonefield. It was gearbox problems wasn't it?
  10. That'll just be snow causing the worrying noise, my xc70 has been doing exactly the same!
  11. That's a Shelvoke & Drewry! Did a magazine feature on a chap in Northern Ireland whose business is hiring out municipal vehicles, and he has a small collection of S&Ds across the years.
  12. I've been considering throwing the Amazon or what's currently left of the Laplander on the trailer and pulling it behind the XC70...
  13. I got my fill last night, I've been to no.3 on here too!
  14. When I used to go out to Carrick in the 1100 of a night it was only ever for a Chinese or a McDonalds, I feel like I missed out! Having said that, I don't think I've been in Carrick for at least 5 years, and I don't think a kebab will be enough to lure me back... So who else is up for a dorty sphincter?
