Manchester. Home of the Happy Monday's, the Ruby Tuesdays and Sunday, Bloody Sunday.





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


The local dialect is Manx, and cats are born without tails within its county boundary.





Mad ferret.

Late Updates!


Sorry for the delay. Been a long shift.



Spotted a couple of lurkers on a roof:







Turned out they were very nice gentlemen and were equipped with a car of impeccable taste.










Back at home base we came across the NOT A ROFFLE prize Colt.



Not before I knocked a bit on P6 trim off.  Sorry JM

So, after a few hours with the Colt do you love it or hate it?



Its really great.  When I first got in it I thought is was super comfy.  Its perky enough, nippy, quiet and holds pretty well too.


After driving it for a couple of hours, I started to get pins and needles in my legs though.  The seat just doesnt go back far enough to be perfect.  Hopefully it wont make any difference as a short hop town car, which I intend to use it as.


Cant fault it though.


Best £5 I ever spent.

Spotted a couple of interesting things on the drive back.  The 50mph stretches of the M60, M62 and A1 are fucking awefull.


Non - pineappled, not Gti mk2.  Driven by an older couple.











American car.










Because Conrad is such a gent, I didnt have to fill the tank before I left,  but a stopping in for a money shot nearer home:






And finally home.











172 miles door to door.






Great thanks to Junkman and Conrad for being such pleasant and helpful gentlemen, and for steering me right.  The cars been warded by them both and its obviously been well looked after.



Its in for MOT this week, so wish it luck!

LEEDS achieved.



We arrive out of season, to find only one crane, which still displays in vien, though all potential suitors are migrated to Benidorm for the warmer, summer months.




Watch out for the ghostly iphone, it might get you. If it was purchased with carphone warehouse your screwed anyway as all you data is now owned by some scammer.

Best of luck to anyone that steals all of my personal information. That's like shoplifting from a charity shop.

I forced Mrs WW to drive Ron (burgundy) home from work this evening. She flat out refused initially, as she hates autos with a passion (having only ever driven a XJ40 round a car park before she'd passed her test, and an SLK once when I drank too much beer) and was absolutely convinced that a £5 car MUST be a deathtrap.

After initial attempts to drive it with two feet were trained out, she settled into it. Being left handed, and used to turning signal pole on the left of the wheel, she kept lifting her hand to reach for an indicator that wasn't there. At least two people thought she was waving, and waved back.

After we'd done a bit of THE ASDA car park manoeuvres and she'd drove the ten or so miles home she broke out in a smile.

"I guess it take it all back. It's nice. Will you put a radio in it?"

MOT first pet.

Live update.


She's in for MOT.


Tester said it's one of the best examples he's ever seen/you don't see many of these any more/ very solid underneath etc etc.

I wonder if the vosa computer fires that line out to the tester when any Colt reg number gets pumped in, its the same I've got the last few mots of my colt

      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!

      Don't think I need any more than those smiles to sell it.

      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.
