YELLOW PEUGEOT CABRIOLET RAFFLE - DRAWING TONIGHT (05/07)

Recommended Posts

AS mentioned in my 'memoirs', I think it's time for someone else to take on the little 306 cab. I've had some real fun over the last few months, but it now needs someone with time and patience (or disposable income) to take it on. My OCD prevents me from owning anything that's in any way slightly broken, and it's irritating to own something so handsome yet...err... broken.

GOOD

  • The previous owner literally threw money at it. New hood ECU, Full service and belts done by a specialist 120 miles from his house (he wanted a good job)
  • I have continued to throw cash at it (two new handbrake cables and one rear caliper last month along with new screen)
  • 12 months MOT
  • Wheels were refurbished in January and look fucking glorious. Shod in fantastic Toyo Proxes.
  • Desirable 'Sundance Yellow' (I'm now having doubts about selling it - it's amazing)
  • 2.0 engine is 135 bhp and brisk. Also will do 45mpg on a run.
  • Strut brace YO.
  • Interior is lovely - no leather so no burnt bottoms on a hot day. All original I.C.E.

BAD


  • The steering is a bit heavy. It's not got any worse in the 4,000 miles I've had it. Probably the pump getting tired. It doesn't bother me,
  • The clutch is heavy. This is a known idiosyncrasy of RHD cars. I think the cable runs too close to the exhaust and dries up. Able bodied drivers will be fine - others should consider different cars (probably an automatic or a Honda Jazz)
  • Paint is better in some places than others. It's the best one I could find at the time though
  • Fuel guage hasn't worked since it had a new in tank pump last year. (Previous owner flashing the cash again) 350 miles to a tank easily achievable.

UGLY

  • Just the one. The roof. Obviously. Last night it decided to make a few strange noises, and it seems that it has lost about 70% of its hydraulic oil. I would say one of the hoses has popped near to the motor in the boot, but that's just from watching it for 15 minutes last night. I think it's been slowly leaking for some time now, because it has become increasingly erratic for some weeks. You have three options really.
  • Fix it. Either yoursen or with help from one of the many companies who do this kind of thing day in, day out.
  • Ignore it. Disconnect two pins from the hydraulic rams and operate the roof manually. (It is possible to do this without disconnecting, but it's infinitely easier if you're not working against the system.
  • Remove it. Take the whole fucking thing out and have a beach buggy. My neighbour has a little MG with no roof, and it never bothers him. You could even buy a hard top for winter/outdoor storage.

£12 A TICKET. THE WINNING TICKET WILL BE REFUNDED, SO YOU'LL DRIVE OFF IN STYLE FOR FREE.

Thanks man.  Wasn't it you getting proper agro from your landlord about cars?  If so, get ready for lots of people gifting tickets to you for megalolz

 

Yeah, had a bollocking when I had the Colt, which then got sold and bought the Jag.

Then had a mega bollocking which partly influenced my sale of the Jag.

 

Since then, despite me having only a single car parked in the car park, relations have further soured. I'm back on the hunt for somewhere new to live, but a big yellow FUCK YOU parked in the car park would do nicely for a couple of weeks :D

I had one of these new, they handle brilliantly; one of the best four-seat cabriolets of the era.

 

Not doing roffles anymore, tired of losing, but this looks lovely.

 

Hey Richard.  Thanks man.  It's a cracker, the only person who loves it more than me is my 4 year old lad!  The replacement will a bit special to get his seal of approval.

 

Disappointed you're not taking part (what with it being bright fucking yellow) but understand. I've yet to win a Raffle either!

Just a tip, Mr Borne, but could you possibly just update the raffle numbers in the first post instead of quoting the whole list every time?

 

This thread is already wearing out the scroll wheel on my mouse...

 

Righto.  I don't even raffle previous to this, so it's all a bit new.  Apologies.

I sort of agree, but then thickos like me have to scroll back when using the phone too see how the numbers list is going, and what's left.

Maybe the trick for Roffles is to have a signature line like:

 

ROFFLE ACTIVE (this links to the Roffle thread) then: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 etc. REMAINING. And the first page of the roffle has the list.

 

You could just start with 1-59 available, then 1-10, 12, 15, 20-46, etc.

15 down already - which is a nice strong start.  Thanks for helping out a brother.

 

I have located a very strong candidate to replace this which is in south wales, so delivery may be a possibility if I can tie it in with collecting the new one and you'd be happy to chauffeur me to the vendor.

 

More if we can get all tickets sold.

      NOW EDITED:
      Proper funny-face Multipla
      My wife's car for last 8 years
      ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
      8v turbo diesel that plods on and on.  And on and on.  Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
      Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
      Clutch 2016
      Cambelt 2017
      180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
      Some war wounds well what do you expect, some interior sticky plastics but nothing broken


      Some noisy front clonking to deal with -  was told it's the inner ARB bushings despite MOT man being happy.  Just been turning up the stereo
       
      UPDATE
      Now has a Cat-C marker because of this.  Grrr.  The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k.  Stitched together with cable ties for now.   

      MOT all the way to October
      Roffling at £8.50 a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it.  Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
      We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before.  So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out

      Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
      You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
      This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
      I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago.  I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue.  A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car.  The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped.  That's it really.  Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me.  No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
      She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
      Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home. 
       
      If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.

      1998 Mercedes C200 Elegance
      126k miles, MOT August.
      I picked this up from AndyW201 about a fortnight ago as a daily to replace the Cavalier whilst I take it off the road, I've done about 1000 miles in it, drives absolutely spot on and Andy has definitely undersold it in his description.
      However, due to buying the A8 from sims and another potential purchase I'm in negotiations with on here, I really need to free up some space - my storage is absolutely maxed with stuff and I now have 4 cars at home annoying the neighbours, I need to make some movement.
      Scrubs up fairly well, it has had some odd touch ups around the body but nothing that overly stands out, decent tyres all round, all electric work, has cruise control so is ideal on A roads/Motorways etc.
      £350 or will roffle at £6 a ticket. Delivery possible.






    • By TheDoctor
      I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar. 
      £350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
      Good:
      159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
      Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
      Bad:
      Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
      Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
      Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
      Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
      Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that. 
      Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
       
      I don't actually have many pictures...
