FOAD's fleet - unexpected 190E arrival

That looks smart, I'd forgotten they did the saloon in 340 flavour. Is that the 1.7 Renault engine?

It is the 1.7 Renault engine. I think it's pretty much poverty spec, has a grim looking grey interior, no rev counter etc. Mileage is around 30k but I think the speedometer and odometer has been out of action for a year so will actually be a bit higher.

It's been for sale for a while with a salty asking price of £1500 but looking for swaps/PX. I've not had anything to swap for it until now.

Any luck?

I didn't have a lot of time but there was plenty of minis to choose from, I got a couple of interior trim bits including a gear knob gaiter, mirror switch, door tweeter surround, A-pillar trims and a boot carpet.

I'm going to go back for the headlining and carpet next week, the scrapyard think it'll be around £20 plus vat for it so it's worthwhile getting and fitting it. I've decided to hold onto the car for now and get it into a bit more of a usable condition before deciding what to do with it. It drives really well but I feel like a bit of a fanny when out in it.

I felt a bit like that in @Jim BellBell's last one.  In fact it was so quick and unpleasant that I didn't like it until my ma had a feint / fall and I needed to do 7 miles quickly to help.  Good job it was too early for the coppers to be awake, I got there a full 10 minutes before the paramedic who was closer..

I could see the point then, but they're still licence losing fast and very silly looking.

If it doesn't sell or swap on retro roads paint it camo green then nobody will see you driving it.

I didn't recognise you in time or I would have waved as you drove past on Friday,  could have pitted for a brew too.

I think I'll have a better chance of selling it in its original colour with a full interior.

Slightly disappointed the gti alloys were removed but I imagine it'll be nicer to drive on 14" wheels with balloon tyres.

 

Some more pics of the Subaru...

That 190 behind the Subaru looks familiar...

I've not seen one of those Subarus in years...yet you keep finding them.

These had the same engine in as the 1.6/1.8 estate they did around the same time didn't they?  So pre-dated the addition of balancer shafts or nonsense like that, and sound absolutely gorgeous as a result.

Remember feeling really let down the first time I took an Impreza out...was expecting the same raw mechanical growl to be transmitted through the car as in the 1.8DL estate a friend had...yet it sounded just like any other car aside from a bit of a burbly exhaust.

I'd find it really hard to turn down one of any of the applicable vehicles purely on aural terms if they turned up locally...

Left at 7 this morning, got up to Wick after lunch then took a leisurely drive back home.

It's a 205 D turbo with 12 months mot and on 66k miles. It drives really well and is a much nicer place to be than the auto 205.

you drove to Wick ? that's commitment to the cause :) 

 

Yeah, initially we had planned to do the swap in Inverness which would have saved me a bit of time ( 3 hours away)  but he was unable to do it this weekend so I suggested I just drive all the way to him which was around 5 hours one way.

      With the month of January nearing its end, the time has come to let go of the Galant. Its been an absolutely brilliant car while I had it, but with my move to Edinburgh approaching quickly, and the lack of space to actually store most of my cars anywhere (I'm sure theres nothing to worry about), this one needs to go. I've written plenty about the car before, if you want an extensive amount of photos you can check my general fleet thread here or check my cross European collection thread from December here.
      If you can't be bothered, here are the details.
      1995 Mitsubishi Galant GLSi Hatchback
      1.8 4G93 petrol and a manual
      Just 61k miles, I've put around 2000 of those on it myself over the last 3 months, with a trip to Germany and back again resulting in no real complications.
      MOT until June
      In general, its in incredibly nice condition. As far as I know, it was granny owned and always garaged, with it not doing many miles at all over the last couple of years. It was then used by a family member since around May of last year, until I bought it in October. Its clear that its been well cared for, without any bodges or stupid modifications to be found at all, excluding the painted wheel trims and radio.
      MOT history looks great, too. Its generally rust free but apparently did get a patch underneath a few years ago, which still looks solid. The bodywork looks great, with no damage or corrosion visible anywhere. There is however a giffer scrape on one of the corners of the rear bumper, and unfortunately, an H from the Mitsubishi lettering is missing. I've therefore deducted 500 quid of the actual market value from the asking price.
      Mechanically it is very solid, too. The front tires show their age and the idle isn't where it should be (members of the Autoshite team have concluded after some collaborative fiddling that it might need a new coolant temp sensor, idle control motor (the one that opens the throttlebody) or something else. Fortunately everything is cheap and all components extremely easy to access so that should hopefully be a quick fix.
      All of this is getting way too long so just have some pictures.





      I might have to add that this happened on the Autobahn. Probably the fastest it ever went in its life.





      And look how practical it is to boot!

      I've set the ticket price to 7 quid which should be fair. I've got a strangely high number of people showing interest in this car so I'll just give everyone the chance to acquire it right here. 
      Lets go!
    • By egg
      This Citroen Visa was purchased at the weekend by five members of the forum, and is now up for a roffle.
      £10 a ticket
      £18 for two
      £27 for three
      Car will be roffled on the bonus ball as normal. The current owner of the car is Wuvvum, who doesn't have an financial interest in it. No profit will be made, and surplus over the initial investment* (£500) will be passed on to the roffle winner to help with collection costs. Part owners may also buy tickets in the draw. The car has an MOT until 15th September.
      More info here in the collection thread:

      Two other notes:
      - Roffle date will not be set until Wuv has the V5 back in his name
      - Car currently has a water leak which Wuv will be fixing before the new owner can collect.
      Off you go!

      Hallo chaps. Too much tat lying and I have a funeral to pay for...
      Mk2 Mondeo 2.0i Zetec, 44k miles, on ST170 alloys plus comes with a set of original spec 5-spoke alloys on duff tyres. MOT til 27/5/2020, some history and a recent battery.
      There are a few marks (pictured), the rear arches aren't too far gone and it has had welding done on the sills.
      The front windows open fine but need a little help closing, they come out the runners on the way up. C/L and heated screen work fine, as does the electric drivers seat adjustment. The clutch bites cleanly and the car pulls well through all the gears.
      It has been sitting a month or so due to the diesel Proton's arrival and I could really do with the cash (unless someone has a carb-fed Proton saloon kicking about in which case I'll sell my arse instead).
      Advertised elsewhere for £525, £400 on here with shiters discocunt applied.
      Car is in Paisley, Scotland, four minutes walk from Paisley Canal station.
