Just like buses, none for ages, then two turn up at once!!


Having a clear out, and also have a drive away awning! It's a bluebird campers one, Deluxe, I think, but they no longer list it on their website. I bought it about three years ago, used it once on the side of our T3, then got properly pissed off with camping and sold the bus.


It's only a small one, which we used for storage, and sitting out in. Doesn't have a groundsheet or any internals. Quite easy to put up, and also comes in it's own holdall. I can't find any pictures at the moment, and quite frankly, can't be arsed putting it up to take some, although I will if anyone is seriously interested.


As I said, it's been used once, then put back up to be aired out and dried before packing up. Cost me about £200 new, I think. Would like £50 from shiters. Can post at cost.

Wanted: Volvo V40 roof bars please. Apparently FATHA_Sterling doesnt have these on his newly-aquired Volvo V40, he has been asking me about them everytime I talk to him, I just don't have the time with all the stuff I need to sort out so anyone has a set they don't need, please let me know. Cash waiting.

That does look inviting, is it the colours that make it look so bright and airy? When I get around to it I'll convert an old Vanette for my brothers family, well I say I'll convert, more likely I'll stick the windows in, then dump all the gear in the back and chuck it at them with a bag of self tappers and a tube of no more nails.

Seems fair enough to me des. Its no more difficult than an ikea flat pack if its all cut to size ready to go. I stripped this one out, insulated the van and put it all back in last friday afternoon - 6 hours start to finish.. Yeah definitely the colour scheme that helps make it feel nice and bright in there as it is a small van. Having 4 side windows fitted is probably the key to it ultimately though. Thanks for your interest & good luck with yours if you havent got one there are only 95* left and most are already converted so dont leave it too late!

WTD - some nice 15" wheels for a Lancia Beta.


Ideally I'd like some Delta HF wheels like the ones below, not the hideously expensive integrale wheels.




Anything that fits and looks good will be considered though.

I'm after a Hillman Hunter dashboard, in good condition without cracks.


Let me ask my mate Steve and I'll get back to you.


Steve is a mutual friend of mine, Sam (Captain Slow) and Volksys. As I am local to Steve, he has asked me to try and sell his METRIC TONNE of parts that he has accumulated over the years, he has far too much stuff and not enough space, he wants to try and sell off as much as he can to make space and move his business forward.


He had asked me this a couple of months ago but since then I have done literally nothing due to difficult and changing circumstances, and some laziness.


Anyhow, Steve is centrally located in the Midlands, more specifically in Cradley Heath and mainly deals with British cars, he has much in stock mainly for Metros and other British cars, but he also has other stuff, i.e bootlid for a Peugeot 205 Cabrio and a BMW 6-series, at the moment he is on the verge of packing it all in so I want to help where I can. I am not much of a seller but will help if anything is needed.


What I shall do from now on, is where people have put up wanted ads, I shall ask Steve if he has the item in stock and the price if hehas and will get back to you via PM. Its about time I did something :?

I know that good quality second-hand will be preferable and more cost-effective, but I had some excellent Hunter panels made by these chaps at what seemed like a not unreasonable price.

I dont like the way the parts list state POA for early wings, but thanks for the link.......

      If you saw the News 24 in the early hours you’ll have seen my next car is due since it’s back up north, so now the collection!
      So all I know of this car is the make and model, colour and year. And that it had an MOT. What have I gotten myself into? 
      Alexia, play Mr Blue Sky...

      So The reason the 316 is up for sale/Roffle is because I bought a new car! Bought last night and just away to leave for it!
      Its not far away but I want to join in on collection thread fun! 
      All you need to know for now is its a convertible! 
      First stop was getting in a 08 reg Vectra...the start of many a good journey?

      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.

      After a fun* 30 mins phonecall to insure the latest purchase, I thought I'd cheer myself up by starting a collection thread a wee bitty early!
      First clue.
      I ain't had one of these before..

      Lads, lads, lads. Its been ages since I bought a thing, and I LOVE BUYING THINGS. I couldn’t sleep last night, for instance. 
      I feel great because buying vehicles SOLVES ALL OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS (apart from parking permits). 
      Anyway, I just agreed to buy a thing, with collection commencing today or tomorrow. 
      In the meantime, let’s spy on the vendors house on street view shall we? My little bundle of joy is tucked in behind that rather tasty 164.
