Cheers for the startoff. I pay £80/yr with Lancaster, coupla years older than yerself though, and might be in a slightly better postcode (plus it's garaged)? Either way, it's still cheap motoring...apart from the RFL and fuel consumption, of course :roll: Just punted it on to see interest, set the reserve @ £600 which is about a ton less than it stands me in. If it doesn't go I'll MOT it, can't see any reason why it shouldn't fly through.

Hmm, not very far beyond my 'shiting' budget then. I'll broach the subject (gently) with 'the management' later... the RFL is probably gonna be the deal-breaker. I'm kicking myself for turning down a tax-free Mk1 granny for cheapness a couple of months ago....The insurance quote was to include breakdown cover & zero excess, which both bump it a bit, afaik, we live in one of the best postcode categories there is. :roll:

Ah, I do max excess (£500 IIRC) and no breakdown as I have AA cover. Have managed to wing repairs on 'old' cars with the 'very nice man' in the past, including twice in the same day on one of the Rekords :lol: You could always sell it as having plenty of room for Poglets, rear belt fitment should be straightforward I think. 'Tis a lovely motor (if I do say so myself)...Tax free Mk1 must have been a very early one. I prefer the 'sharp suited style' of the Mk2 though, always have.

Well, looks like you may be OK - the buyer has pretty good feedback. Looking at that 240 has reminded me that I have a 245 sitting around that I really must get MoT'd and hack on the road. I also have a Saab, a Viva, a Daimler and a Mazda 323 which all need MoTing, but from what I can see the 245 should be about the easiest one to get through - I might have to "borrow" the wheels off the 164 as the fromt tyres are a bit worn on their inside edges, but apart from that the only potential failure I can see is that the brakes are a bit spongy. So hopefully I'll soon be tanking around in a tonne and three quarters of slow but invincible Swedish shite. And putting white van men firmly in their place. :D

Heh - as soon as they see the headlamp wipers, they back off in a game of chicken. Used to happen all the time when I had my 340...

I take it you're not talking about tailgating, as then they wouldn't see the headlamp wipers?

Is that your 'one & only' I thought the one that you keep out the front on the axle stand was a greeny colour? Shame to lose it from our local 'scene'.

Aye, that's exactly what I was thinking Fred_Bo11ox.Plus it's that ACE babypoop colour. Just like the one my dad had when I was a wee lad. Sadly he lashed it into a ditch on the way home from the boozer, circa 1980, good work dad!

Aye Reg -tis blue, and my one/only. Marital pressure and the fact that I cant bloody move means a swop around and consolidation -so there will be a few up for grabs. Upside is that there will be a few diffrent cars outside soon- as space is sorted. Swop arouns starts shortly.......

I particularly like the uPVC double-glazed window on the nearside...sorta camper/kebab van look.

Yes its kinda trick, in a shite way of course, wonder if the everest guarantee applies, and should you need to replace them would their 'buy one get one free' offer work?can just imagine the conversation.."erm i'd like a quote please for some windows""Ah yes, what address is it, i'll send a salesman round this evening""erm... well..""oh, and we're doing a 'showhome' offer, where you get them for free if we can show people round after""That sounds Great, sign me up, in fact I can take the home round to the people if you want....."
