Hey that Granada is a dying breed..... string-vest-tastic! A few years ago every council binman with a thing for bling was rocking a ride like this. 8)8) Theres a clone of it in Crewe, either me or retrogeezer will spot it sooner or later.

At £600 is that GR8 4 BANGARZ?

How much do the banger lads pay for something a bit rare these days out of interest?

Anybody on a military vehicle forum would be great to mae sure it made its way over to one of them not the banger boys!

Already on the list, I wouldn't mind, but the seller did that, it's had a plate transfer.

Hey that would be great as a sort of blast from the past rubbish collector, just write 'BILLYS BINS, Poggleswade 348' on the doors and drive round with a load of stinking bags of shite in the back.

Yowser!

 

If I owned that I would have to fit some ladders on the roof, various buckets and squeegees in the boot and develop a chippy demeanour (which no doubt derives from the knocking off of bored housewives under the pretence of window cleaning).

 

Superb.

There's a MK2 Astra hatchback which goes around Dewsbury which seems to be doing the whole window-cleaning routine. Unless ladders are some kind of RATLOOK SCENE thing.Our window cleaners have a knackered MK5 Escort Van with a dozen half-hearted "England" stickers on it. Sometimes I see them sat in it on a morning, smoking rollups and looking miserable.

Our windows were cleaned by a man with a really grotty old Mazda wagon. Though we don't have him come round any more, cos half the time he couldn't be arsed to do the back ones. He's got a grey-import Pajero now, which is very disappointing.

^^^^LOL, too true, that Escort is the ultimate weapon for hunting local Milfs!

 

This Fiesta benefits from having had the inner wing 'modified' to take a 5-speed gearbox - this mod basically involves chopping away 90% of the chassis leg. I seem to recall the famous yellow fiesta 'supersport convertible' having the same mod, except in that car it had been skilfully removed with a garden spade. See if you can see the mod:

I love these 'Nash' devices, very cool styling. It's the enclosed front wheels that do it for me.

Hmm, I looked at an old 1959 copy of Motor and in the new car price list the Borgwards were actually not that expensive for an import. Somewhat more than an Austin or Ford obviously but similar to a Volvo, Fiat 1800 or a Humber. Interesting that that one's reckoned to be a SA import but has the same old London area reg. as mine.

 

Bathtub Nash is HUGE!

I`m glad my ebay account has been shot down, I`d be having a bid on that Zephyr and getting myself into a whole heap of trouble. I haven`t seen a "think it`s got a grille ooh no look it hasn`t" square tank for ages, and I think that weird concave not-grille is one of the finest design features of any car, ever.

GR8 4 DODGI ID CHNGES, with supposedly good condition cars being "scrapped" sure this is an open goal for those that want to just shift vins plates and numberplates onto better condition cars?

This 1-owner Rover 820 on the other hand, would mark one out as one of the more sophisticated and well-read movers & shakers in the plastic toliet seat industry (or similar).
