Yeah, but you me and the rest of our merry band of shiters really have to exist in the real world (much as we try to escape it). I don't doubt for one second that it's very lovely to chug round in an old horsebox weaving medievel tapestries out of flax or somesuch, but it's really not all that feasable a life if your not on course to inherit a fortune at some stage, that's all.

No it ain't. That's entirely my point. You meet these poncey right on artists and the like who fartarse about pretending not to have a bean when really they are set up for life, it's the rest of us scrabbling about in the dirt [there's some lovely filth over here, Dennis] just to scrape by and not finish up like some kind of 3rd world scrat-end.

Not shite - especially not with an £1800 reserve - but I love these...

Hmm, summat doesn't look quite right here IMO. The plate is the one from the car that was in the Bubblecar Museum but despite the BL door mirror, I'm not convinced it's the same car. Unless I'm too cynical and it HAS had a makeover from someone who's knows their stuff. :?

Actually, perhaps I was a bit hasty..... Looking at the rest of my pics and especially the alignment of the front valance I think it is kosher after all. Certainly a new bonnet and new black bits but I stand corrected. :oops:

I reckon it's the same car but when i had a good look over it at the auction it really wasn't all that nice. It's chock full of filler. the rear arches are extensively filled and it was generally very wobbly all over. It looks like it's bee resprayed but I wouldn't want to pay anywhere near that much for it.

How on earth does that Mazda count as a 'lowrider'? What a load of old arse. In fact I could probably still fit my arse into the gaps betwixt arch and tyre there. I can't even slide two fingers into the same aperture on my car, and I would never ever claim that to be some kind of lowrider. Toss!!!As for that Ozztin Free Leeter, I'd go batshit for that as it is clearly devine. If I actually had two pence to rub together / a pot to piss into. Bloody recession.

My jacked up Galant is more of a lowrider than that sodding 626. Still, nice car if you undo its faults, if they've changed the suspension on that I'll eat my hat. I reckon if you put the standard wheels and tyres on it'll look totally standard again.

Shame that President is a later one. I don't mind the square lights but they have a pretty naff interior and dash for a top if the range car. Looks like something you'd expect in a Bluebird. The pre-facelift ones are pretty classy looking inside. Still... a cracking motor and I'd have it gladly!

I love it when these barries 'detail' their engine bay. It usually involves picking out the word 'injection' or 'turbo' or whatever with a tin of humbrol enamel, then closing the bonnet and going back up to their bedroom with a copy of Nuts magazine and an old sock.

some service history incl. a receipt that confirms the car is MOT ready

Great! When it fails the test you can just present that, and the tester will no doubt see the error of his ways immediately. I suppose you can use it every year can you? :roll:

I wonder what percentage of people actually do something they say will "do if they find the time". Probably 0.

Awesome. Anyone ever actually seen a DeVile [sic] for real? It was one of the few cars in my 'st michael' car spotters book that never got ticked off.

YES!! There used to be one cruising around Liverpool when I was visiting my then girlfriend at Uni there!!

Ultimate LOLLLZ.

Clearly THE CATS BALLSAC, though I am 112% sure that it will get bought up for some large sum and have a 'redtop' or similar performance crassness shoehorned in.
