Now....this will probably divide opinion....


Moar photos would have been a good idea; there's only three, the others are of the dash and the seats. :roll:

If it's been done properly...it could be worth the £7995...oh, it's



It does say in the advert:

Turbo B says....



I'm as serious as diphtheria when I say that I hate this interior.









This guy is not quite at Purple Helmet standard but seems to be using a similar pricing guide:





£4,475 or have blue oval tax got to these already? they were not that special were they?

Re the Old Spice Capri, I saw it at some event (can't even remember what it was, some fun day perhaps) and I seem to remember it was auctioned off by Old Spice, or given away in a competition. I'd have thought it was finished to a "that'll do" standard under the vinyl wrap rather than being a full-scale resto.

Flat tyre and that "just stolen" look of a missing radio and lots of wires hanging underneath the steering column. Nice, diesel and a long MOT... but a bit much at a bag of sand. Maybe I'll make an offer...


WTF is the "hydrogen cell" he's going on about?

Look at this POS.





1959 VW Beetle - Golde ragtop - Semaphores For Sale


£15,000. It looks like someone has smeared shit over it.


So now the car can be used as a daily driver or sit in a Garage or Museum. It has the fake rust Paint that has apparently 5 differen't colours to get the Rust effect all over with L87 Pearl White Paint as the base colour-(custom Paint Job), Rusty-Adged Dull look used on body with Yellowish tint to bring the car to Film standard and decal/stickers by Gregg Carr (official Herbie correct decals from Tampa-Florida). The interior is painted in Matt-Grey just like the film cars-I have seen x4 original Herbies in my time here in the U.k and USA and can only say that it's so near the original cars and a fraction of the price!





The only film that car would be used in is 2 girls 1 cup.

WTF is the "hydrogen cell" he's going on about?


Hydrogen is made by electrolysis of water (using electric energy from the car's battery) with an enthalpy of separation of 285KJ/mol. Electrolysis of water is roughly a 60% efficient process, probably a lot lower in a home made system.


This hydrogen is then burnt in the engine to make water, with an enthalpy of formation of -285KJ/mol (creating energy to charge the car's battery). Thermal efficiency in an diesel engine is roughly 35%.

Seeing all those nothing motors with massive mark-ups reminds me of an white Opel Manta GTE Hatch back in ~1999 that was on a forecourt in Glossop @ £2.5k for several years. Probably still is. They barely made £500 back then.

I quite like it and if you want a show car then you might well pay that for it.

I wouldnt pay that for a Mk 2 Golf, but hey if someone wants to its their money.

Meh, if I was well rich like I'd offer him £20,000. But I'm not.

I'd be interested to hear the story behind it though.


EDIT: Just found it, interesting stuff.



Fair play, that's superbly well done.
