88 Colt. LOL ROFFLE (NOW WITH FREE MONEY)

Recommended Posts

The Colt Single Action Army which is also known as the Single Action Army, SAA, Model P, Peacemaker, M1873, and Colt .45 is a single-action revolver with a revolving cylinder holding six metallic cartridges. It was designed for the U.S. government service revolver trials of 1872 by Colt's Patent Firearms Manufacturing Company – today's Colt's Manufacturing Company – and was adopted as the standard military service revolver until 1892.

The Colt SAA has been offered in over 30 different calibers and various barrel lengths. Its overall appearance has remained consistent since 1873. Colt has discontinued its production twice, but brought it back due to popular demand. The revolver was popular with ranchers, lawmen, and outlaws alike, but as of the early 21st century, models are mostly bought by collectors and re-enactors. Its design has influenced the production of numerous other models from other companies.

The Colt SAA revolver is a famous piece of Americana, known as "The Gun That Won the West".

Tatahashi Mitsubishi, was born in 1934 in a small town in probably Japan. From an very early age, he showed a great interest in two things: car design and the old west.
By the age of 9, he was Sherriff of his junior school and could draw a Ford Focus freehand, using a compass for only the wheels.
He rode a horse everywhere he went and was often seen drinking saspirilla while devising ways to make rear arches rust at rates in excess of expectation.

Little is known about the rest of his life, other than the moment when his two great loves converged in 1988.

In 1988 he took all the properties that made THE GUN THAT WON THE WEST such a success, and applied then to autamotive design.

See the metal bodied construction. The "six shooter" six cylinder, three lite engine. The wooden grips, the manual action gear change and the unmistakable Colt lines throughout.

ROAD TEST:

Long thin snake car is carpeted plushly throughout its length and across most of its width, making treading to and from the disabled toilet a pleasure.

 

Seating is both supportive and bi-directional though can not be described as comfortable to any degree.

 

Acceleration is best described as sluggish though power delivery is smooth and seemingly endless. I would not be surprised if this old girl would too 125 miles per hour if we found a long thin metal road long enough.

 

Handling is great. Though the kerbweight is in excess of six hundred tonnes, she still handles like she is on rails even at speed and under breaking. Slowing down for tight bends is essential.

 

Braking is noisy but effective, producing some judder and squealing but great confidence is instilled by the solid feel and the sharp bite of the anchors.

 

In vehicle entertainment is very much "use what you brung" so it's possible to listen to whatever you like, or to pick your nose, if desired.

 

All in all, I would rate it 5 out of 10.

Manchester is Brittains forth smallest town and boasts two proffesional football teams. Staybridge Celtic and Bury.

      It seems to be a fairly common question on here as to how to run a roffle, so I thought a quick how to with some tips and tricks would be useful.
      Basics:
      Numbers 1 to 59 - this allows the use of the lotto bonus ball.  This avoids any chance of accusations of a fix.
      Tip: put this in the first post in the roffle thread. You don't want to have to be going back to the 6th post on page three of a sale thread just to add in a random.
      Participants can pick numbers, or just ask for a random selection.  Tip: once chosen, tag each user against their number using the @ symbol.  Don't use Tapatalk mentions, they don't work.  In fact, why are you still using Tapatalk?
      You don't have to give someone a ticket just because they ask - feel free to ignore requests from fascists, socialists, time wasters, new users or people who use waxoyl.
      Tip: put roffle as a tag and an item prefix.
      Ticket price should be roughly 1/59th of what you want for the car.  Tip: ensnare gambling addicts by offering a multibuy offer.  
      Make sure location and ticket price are in the thread title.
      Make it clear if the car is drivable, MOTd, and for how long it can stay where it is should a winner not be able to collect immediately.
      Once all tickets are allocated, send a message to all victims with payment details.
      Tip: use a modern bank like Monzo or Starling so you know immediately when payments come in.  Sending bank details is relatively low risk, especially with modern banks where a newly set up direct debit would be easy to spot and deal with.
      If you choose to allow PayPal, BEWARE!
      Many intelligent and sensible people are unable to send payments by Friends and Family (which will cost you) or will include "here's your raffle ticket money" in the message (which could lead to your PayPal account being shut down, losing all funds).  Some people then pull the "I didn't receive my item" trick to get their money back, or even claim that their credit card payment was not approved.  In short, taking PayPal payments leaves you liable to lose the money even after you think it's yours.
       
      As the money starts coming in, check off the users in the number list.  When most have paid it's tempting to announce that the next draw will decide the winner - but observe caution here too.  Some people don't pay even after promising to; you don't need to gamble on them.   Wait until you have all the money, then announce that the next lotto draw will be the decider.
      Tip: don't worry about following the draw, someone will want it enough to watch it live.

      Not actually a roffle, sorry.  What have been our best roffles? I quite liked winning a Lexus LS400..

      Six-Cylinder Entertains – Virtual Roffle of my Maserati BiTurbo
      As I can’t sing or dance I had to think up an alternative entertainment. I have noticed how much people enjoy a Roffle and obviously collection is difficult at the moment so I am holding a Roffle for one of my cars, the difference is it is virtual and no collection needed!
       
      You can dream for a short while of having a Maserati BiTurbo. I value the car at £5,000 so tickets are £84.00, usual format after all numbers are “sold” the bonus number of the next National Lottery draw is the winner
       
      To make it clear you will not get my Maserati at the end of it, neither will you have to pay £84 for a ticket.
      I do have a little treat for the winner as I have a 1:43 scale model of a Biturbo saloon to send them as a gift. If you are the winner and want to be taken out in the real one or maybe even have a short drive after lockdown I will be pleased to accommodate you.
       
      Up for Virtual Roffle is my :
      1987 Maserati 425 biturbo saloon, 2.5 carburettor twin turbo V6 190 bhp and feels more because of a great wedge of torque in the mid range. 5 speed gearbox with dogleg 1st.
      Owned for 7 years.
      MOT 13th November 2020, but I believe it will benefit from having 6 months added to mean it will not need a fresh MOT until May 2021.
      Excellent running condition. Just 60, 000 miles, original leather book pack with service history to 48,000 miles then lots of invoices. Cambelt 2 years ago, brake callipers, recent pair of new tyres. Several rubber fuel lines replaced including the dangerous one that lives in the turbo pressure box.
      The Bodywork is always a bugbear with these and we have chased rust a couple of time, windscreen surround, front wings and boot floor. Now a very sound and tidy car if not prize winning.
      Of course there are some negatives:
      Radio/cassette is not working
      Wheels need refurbishing
      Some wear to the interior
      Idle a little high
      Electric boot release can be a bit problematical
      Bonnet 2nd catch release needs a clip.

      Remember you only win a 1:43 model, but there is nothing to pay to enter.
       
      No I don’t want to sell the BiTurbo this is just for fun.

      If you saw the News 24 in the early hours you’ll have seen my next car is due since it’s back up north, so now the collection!
      So all I know of this car is the make and model, colour and year. And that it had an MOT. What have I gotten myself into? 
      Alexia, play Mr Blue Sky...

      This roffle DOES NOT include two new genuine wings. They would be available to purchase by the winner, or I'll sell them separately.
      12 months MOT
