jalopys by r_welfare, on Flickr


All 31 issues of Jalopy.  Plus the only 2 printed issues of Original Tin by our very own Conrad D. Conelrad.  I'm asking £100 posted for these.  Steep, but try finding another set...

Pretty good value considering what they go for individually. The Jalopys, that is. Pogweasel once sold a copy of Original Tin for seven quid on eBay, which made me exclaim WTF out loud since I lost that much on every copy.

State of play:


CAR - first dibs to Skizzer with Chaseracer as reserve.


Jalopy - first dibs to Dugong with Mr Livered and Guest as first and second reserve respectively.


R&T and Autocars still available.


Still to come - about a dozen issues of Wheels (Australian version of CAR) from the 70s and 80s; plus pretty much every issue of Car Mechanics since 2007, if there is any interest in the latter!

By the way I believe that set of Jalopy is complete but have never been able to confirm. The niece of Rod Ker signed up to the Honest John forum some years back after someone started a Jalopy thread, but buggered off before I had the chance to ask if Issue 31 was the last!


It took me about three years to build that set up but I haven't read them since I don't know when.

Serious Joypal envy.


Still treasure my stash, ex-tontops - they've done the rounds among shite car loving friends and like a wanky lop-sided Allegro, bring joy wherever they go

I was just trying to remember who they went to. Glad they are being enjoyed and spread about.


I might even ask for a borrow back when I get some time to sit and read stuff. Keep an eye out for a PM around 2030 :-)

There's 15 in total - 14 Wheels, one Modern Motor. I will take a pic but probably won't be able to upload until Wednesday.


Issues as follows:


Wheels - March 1978, January 1982, September 1991, October 1988, December 1984, July 1983, June 1983, November 1982, July 1982, March 1975, November 1977, June 1979, June 1975 and May 1979.


The Modern Motor is September 1979.


I'd ask 30 quid delivered for these.

The CAR editions arrived at Skizzer Close yesterday as promised, in a very handsome packaging arrangement.  I'm working from home today and being VERY GOOD about not spending the entire day reading Setright, Barker, Bishop, Blain et al.


Cheers Mr Welfare, you are a scholar and a gentleman.
