FOAD's fleet - unexpected 190E arrival

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?

      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!

      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.
