  1. Aware that D1 prices are rising rapidly I've been on the lookout for a cheap one for a while.Spotted this on the'Bay,committed the cardinal sin of purchasing unseen(@£900 it was worth a gamble).Cheap because it only had 1st/3rd/5th but i pre booked an MOT,got insurance and i intended to drive it back.WCPGW?.So come yesterday we loaded my oppo's D1 with everything I could think we would need and set sail for N Cornwall.Found the place easy enough,car looked ok,chucked in the new battery I'd bought(it had been laid up for 2yrs) and turned the key.Nothing.Immobiliser stuck on,tried a new battery in the key fob but it was dead.Ok so far so good*.Decided to tow it the 30 odd miles home which we duly did.No pics of the journey back due to a strap a little* shorter than I would have liked and not much brakes hence left hand was permanently holding the transmission brake.🤣.Anyway,Jim knows what's what and the miles steadily clicked off until we arrived back at the DTV Ranch.Further update dreckly.🙂.
  2. This is kicking off first thing tomorrow... First Class train ticket booked, don’t cha know
  3. You can never have too many project cars, right? Good job, then - this turned up this afternoon! I absolutely love it. It’s battered and bruised but that’s the whole point of a Panda is it not? Used and abused. More to follow 👀
  4. Had this little honey delivered today from the Autoshite legend that is RobT who saved it from the crusher. Has a few issues - biggest of all is rough running / misfire at idle. Top suspect is the inlet manifold gasket which was kindly supplied. Needs a proper service since the previous giffer owner seems to have been ripped off by his local garage - the air filter is black as fuck and the spark plugs fitted are probably not the correct ones. OSF sidelight is inop - broken wire. Upon investigating I found some top class wiring repairs to the lighting harness: Yes, twisted together wires covered in masking tape. Lovely. All in all it’s very clean and tidy though - 33k on the clock!
  5. There are many, many reasons why I shouldn't buy any more cars, space, time, money to start with.... In my defence I expected to be outbid on ebay, so it was relatively cheap. This is why I should not read the ebay tat thread, I buy things I don't need. I did consider not doing a collection thread for this, but the last time I collected a vehicle without doing a thread/post I ended up getting home at gone midnight in a loan car (an Astra) and the vehicle I purchased arriving 36 hours later on a flatbed after multiple FTP on the drive home. So here begineth the collection, breakfast: Bacon sandwich with a latte. To be followed by a drive to the train station, multiple trains, ending up with me in the deep South of England. it's almost France, but not quite. Estimated (according to trains) time to destination is after 13:00 this afternoon … so there's lots of time before I get there.
  6. As per title, anyone over this way able to cast their eyes over an unexpected eBay win?
  7. I told myself I don't need any more cars, I've got enough and I'll get some fixed and have loads to choose from. Then you end up working too many hours, one cars breaks the week after getting it through an MOT, then another breaks and you're back to one working/legal car. Instead of getting them fixed you end up browsing ebay and bidding on yet another car. Today in pictures: … good night folks.
