FOAD's ever changing fleet

Recommended Posts

After driving over 900 miles at the weekend I have to say the Alto is fucking great. I love it so much I sold the starlet and it can be my small fun Jap car instead. It's not as fast as the starlet but it's just so much nicer in every way.

 

Now I will try and buy no more cars, it's getting hard to resist but we all know there will be something new in my driveway within a month... I'm thinking about replacing the Tata with some kind of camper after seeing mat the cats at shitefest. I've been on the lookout for Bedford cf's, sherpas and shite like that. The only issue is nobody will buy the tata so i'll end up having to keep that too...

Too much probably. It loves veg. It really depends on if i can find a camper or suitable van at a reasonable price but I'd be looking in the region of £450 for it.

 

£450 seems fairly reasonable IMO

It was a lovely day today so I spent some time looking at old shite cars and pigs...

Ok so not all of them were old...

But it was all definitely shite.

Anyway the reason I visited this autoshite heaven was to get a bit further with getting a car down to the unit which is around 70 miles away.

 

The car in question is this!

We had to push it.

And now it's ready to go!

Got the ramp moved inside, still no sign of the lada though.

I had planned to use the tata to a-frame the lada yesterday but was talked out of it by Mrs foad and nisfan who argued that I'd get pulled because the lada was untaxed, mot'd and uninsured. I thought the chances of that were slim but we agreed that the owner of the field of shite could do it.

Of course it's now been put off until tomorrow meaning I have to waste another day at the unit.

I wanted to go see the penguin parade at the zoo...

Astonishing. I want that VW LT bus thing! Oh, and the little wee thing, whatever that is. Mrs DW wants it too. I love cars that are only just wider than the number plate.

That small car thing is for sale, the owner has a brain tumour and is selling all his stuff before travelling around Italy in a sprinter.

Any interest at £1000? No?

 

There's also a 940 estate going cheap. It's a 2.3 turbo manual.

That's a real shame about the owner having to sell for health reasons but kudos for him making the call and selling up to go have an adventure. If this is the same collosal field of dreams you've papped in the past, I'd love to register an interest in any usable bits off the white Visa GTi he has/had there. I know he wasn't willing to split for parts before (NZ's a little far to ship a whole parts car....) but if he'd be willing to swap bits for cash, I'd be a happy man. Most likely looking at trim bits etc as I'm guessing most of the rest of it is toast.

 

And a unit with a ramp is truly living the dream!

Just to clarify, the owner of that small car thing isn't the owner of the field of dreams but is a local guy who has left some of his stuff on their land. The main shite hoarder is difficult to deal with but his brothers are a bit easier going. Can you post a pic of the visa you're referring to?
