'just bloody scrap it' - the eBay 'fuck me, what were they thinking' thread

Recommended Posts

IIRC copart in some countries have to try auction insurance jobs.

 

this kind of crap is commonplace in the USA, seems to be a complete waste of time in the course of events to the inevitable boat trip to China and return as a Beko fridge freezer

£200 for a tea-towel full of assorted chopped-up wires?

If you say so, Vicar.

 

 

Looks like the sort of thing you'd hoke out of a shower waste trap, but then what do I know?

About a few quids worth of copper cable.

But on the few things (admittedly bikes) that I've rebuilt you'd put a new loom in anyway. Cos if the rest of it is fucked, why skimp on the one thing that's more than likely to set it a fire?

Is it wrong that on my recent road trip in France I saw this and instantly thought of this thread! :-)

At the St Saturnin Classic British Welcome (a huge 1000+ classic car show held near Lemans on the Friday before the 24 hour race) this fine* example of automotive excellence* caught my attention. At first glance it is a standard 1969 MGB roadster fitted with a hard top:

But look closely at the header rail above the windscreen - it is missing! It would appear to be buried in wob.

The wobfest continued all around the hard top, it would appear to have been fitted then sealed on with wob and a rattle can of the same shite silver paint as the rest of the car

Described as mechanically perfect, it had good chrome and nice wheels. How much for this automotive masterpiece? A grand? Maybe 1300 quid?

No.

Thirteen THOUSAND fucking euros!

I have left the phone number on should you be tempted!

Not just the top of the windscreen, the whole windscreen surround has been plastered in to place! If you ever needed to change the windscreen you'd have to go round the edge with a hammer and chisel first.

I want to jack that up on the jacking point and watch all the filla crack :D look at the amount of wob around the low edge of the front wing. I reckon chicken wire and Le monde is plentiful

This car has no MOT and had a broken transmission.

 

The car failed it’s MOT due to a drive shaft that needs replacing and a hand break cable.

Put it this way if your willing to spend the money on it this could be an amazing car for you

I suppose that blithely optimistic statement could apply just as easily to our friend with the Austin, freshly re-listed and still at £999.99...

(I hadn't realised until I viewed the listing that the rear 3/4 pic upthread actually flattered it a lot)
