FOAD's fleet - unexpected 190E arrival

Recommended Posts

11061273_10206630131581223_8898059520208

 

I've done around 120 miles so far and only overheated once! for some reason the fan didn't come on and it boiled coolant everywhere. I topped it up and took it for a drive then stopped with the engine still running, the temp crept up to 90 then the fan came on so it's apparently fixed itself. Maybe the coolant had been low to begin with, I didn't really check when I got the car a couple of weeks ago.

 

It needs some chunky tyres to really pull off the alloys but I'm happy with how it sits on the new wheels. Not bad for £30...

Looks smart on its Cinq sporting alloys.

This was taken at a small meet at our old unit last night, It's my old 340 now owned by Derskine and the Jap poluce car in the corner was owned by Nisfan.

 

Here's some more pics from the meet.

Nice motors, loving the MK1 Reliant Robin. Sure i saw it on Ebay for sale in Aberdeen, has it just been bought or was it a journey down?

It was for sale in Aberdeen as an unfinished project last year, was then bought by the PO of my Dolly 1850 and he got it back on the road as something a bit more economical than his daily driver Reliant Scimitar.

 

He's moving down to Leeds though so had to downsize to one car, he misses it so much he's on the hunt for another!

this looks soooo right.

 

Now sold, the fleet is reducing...

 

I fitted the original wheels to the panda, those alloys seemed to be too wide or the offset was too low causing the rears to rub slightly going over big bumps, Also the lower profile tyres didn't do much for comfort.

I'm not quite sure why I sold the 309, it was economical and reliable but I just didn't like it enough to want to drive it that much. I loved the look of it but just thought it would be best going to someone who would appreciate it as it had been relegated to the back of the drive. 

That's me and mrs foad down to 2 cars each. I have the Panda and the Proton and she has the Tata and the Volvo...

Panda looks cool, I'd love a 4x4 after seeing loads of them in Italy when I was there on holiday. What ever happened to the Alfa?

The alfa is enjoying the fine Scottish weather outside our new unit, can't really count it as a fleet car because I can't drive it. It really has started to rust in front of my eyes. I want it away but the guy who part owns it thinks it will be worth tons when the paperwork is sorted out. I can't really see it.

I've been offered £500 for it as it is.

It's funny, every time I look into buying big diesel Peugeot estates I end up with something small and Japanese. Last year I went to look at a 405 and ended up with a proton. Yesterday I provisionally put my name down for the Shitpeas 305 only to be swayed at the last minute by something small and Japanese. Collection thread imminent...

      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.
