  1. Wedges are ace👍 This is my old Ginetta, next to a Matra in the office carpark a few years ago
  2. I quite like that interior, although obviously it would be better if it was brown and cream. The sweet spot for V70s is actually the one you have. Euro3 engines before 2005 are more reliable and give better fuel economy. I’m no help at all for later ones, but discovering the Euro3 / Euro4 thing took about 200 hours of internet research and wading through the usual bluff of “My Volvo was crap, it had 2 punctures and there was only one spare wheel” Have you been through the wailing despair that is Honest John or the Volvo fora?
  3. Cheap M Sport coupe. Often these are driven hard but that perfect 50:50 weight distribution will see you through 👍 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133716972149 Boring silver, but interior looks nice Oh? After you with the deerstalker hat and magnifying glass, but I deduce the 50:50 weight distribution is no substitute for driver ability
  4. Seems a shame to keep cutting up Austin Sevens from almost 100 years ago just to make these speedster things. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274746361773 I’m sure with some ingenuity and a good eye for proportion, you could build one from scratch? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124667292583 Oh Christ🙄
  5. Low pressure turbo. But these do respond well to a bit of a tweak https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174717715131
  6. There’s definitely something odd about the proportions on these Mahindra Jeeps. Is the bonnet too high or are the front wings too low? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274738474518 Green Jeep for comparison
  7. Haven’t seen one of these for a while. When I was in Korea 20 years ago, my host drove me everywhere in one of these. We covered 300 miles in the worst of the Seoul traffic over the week and it used about a quarter of a tank of fuel https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333942869421
  8. Straight 6 diesel Volvo https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124655629197
  9. Do you want something entirely forgettable but relatively speedy? When Toyota ditched the Corolla and replaced it with the Auris, the speedy version was this 180bhp diesel https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224408237662
  10. Ex-rossers Volvo. Slightly fucked turbo https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133713570194
  11. I’m absolutely impressed with the work and utterly horrified with how rusty it was, I’ve looked at quite a few MX5s and plenty of them for £1000 were worse than this one
  12. Toyota kept the Corolla name when moving from RWD to FWD👍
  13. If petrol ever goes down to 40p a litre I’m so getting one of these fast S80 Volvos. Fuck that T5 nonsense, this is the 4WD V8, 4.4 litre 👍 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233932357151
  14. Here’s a Polo with a Golf engine in it https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/353264888441 Looks ok Woah, better than ok! 2.8 VR6
  15. Nissan Pathfinder, currently cheap. I went to look at one of these a couple of years ago, thinking it would be a modern alternative to my Defender, what a shame the key attribute they copied from the Land Rover was a chassis rusted to fuck. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124656812845
