Well this fine piece of motoring excellence is up for sale. Only 3 owners . 75,000 miles. Sticker for last service at 72,000 miles. Anyway I got it to save it being broke.It drives fine although brakes need a firm press. Rear roof lining a bit saggy but unmarked.only one key but unchipped I think so cheap. Its the 1.6 auto with the honda engine and gearbox. I think its had the fuel injector thingy replaced see photo. Apparently common.leccy sunroof and window's, radio cassette, rear wiper, towbar. Has s few scrapes on bumper corners. Seats a bit saggy but bloody comfy. Drives very well. Fan cuts in and works. Bodywork very nice. Tyres ok but rears have a few cracks, spare is fine. Allmin all a nice little daily. I have insured it for a month so you can drive it home. No tax. Log book isn't back yet but hss been applied for. No bills or paperwork but it does have a national trust sticker so doesnt need any. I would like £240.00 please which would give me my pennies back.

Brakes sound similar to mine, they must be just a bit inefficient (Old Man is convinced there's something wrong with mine, but likes pulling ideas out of his arse). And yes the key isn't chipped so it's super easy to get another, supermarket Timpsons huts will do one for you in a couple of minutes.

Bargain that.

Get the drums off and check out the cylinders - my cab had a shitty brake pedal and failed MoT on rear brake efficiency - it's much better now.

Good shout. No-one ever bothers looking at rear brakes. My 2CV was improved MASSIVELY once I replaced the wheel cylinders and actually freed off the pivots. Must do likewise on the Perodua. And Proton. And Bluebird. And Honda...

This is difficult because it's a much better car than mine cosmetically (paint, rust blebs, hasn't been driven into something), albeit with 15000 more miles. Longer MOT too... Sort of tempted to get it and put the good bits off mine on to it, then try and sell mine on eBay.

Speak for your self . My customers cars get a full brake strip / inspect and adjust every other service !

There is no rush to move this on. I picked it up on mon day so it's insured for another 25 days. I only bid on it because I had seen it at the scrapyard where he had just got it in. I thought it may do someone on here so went for it. I neither need it or wish to keep it so don't panic over having to buy it now. I may waft about in it a bit more and make sure it doesn't go wobbly. To be honest though it flew down the m62 home.

negotiations are progressing well.

However, we need help with Autoshite delivery service from Merseyside to Swansea.

Anyone able to help? Food and Tea/Coffee or Alcohol, should the journey be that bad supplied and money towards train/bus ticket home etc etc

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.

      Edit Nov 2020: Still available. Will order more if I have enough interest...
      A bunch of Autoshite 'GB' style stickers have now landed!
       
      The vinyl seems good quality and they stick well.  Design isn't amazing (because I did it) but satisfied customers are satisfied (see more photos further down this thread).
       
      Still plenty left and I'll order more when they run out.
       
      Price:  £1 each.
       
      P&P: 50p per order.  Free p&p if you order four or more.
       
      Send me a message if you'd like some, or comment below.  If you've commented in this thread, I'll pm you in due course.

      Alright gang,
       
      I've noticed a few times the idea of a Autoshite GB - style sticker being mooted.  Not sure if it's ever come to anything or anyone else has owt in the pipeline, but I downloaded a logo-maker app a little while back and have been messing around with it:
       

       
      If there's enough interest I can look into getting an online sticker-printing outfit to run me a bundle off. 
       
      I can delete the autoshite.com url from the bottom if people want it to be even more discreet.
      The vinyl seems good quality and they stick well.  Design isn't amazing (because I did it) but they look pretty good, I reckon.

      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?

      So The reason the 316 is up for sale/Roffle is because I bought a new car! Bought last night and just away to leave for it!
      Its not far away but I want to join in on collection thread fun! 
       
      All you need to know for now is its a convertible! 
       
      First stop was getting in a 08 reg Vectra...the start of many a good journey?

      After a fun* 30 mins phonecall to insure the latest purchase, I thought I'd cheer myself up by starting a collection thread a wee bitty early!
       
      First clue.
       
      I ain't had one of these before..
