Wierd. Certainly not a Maxi II - I am certain they didn't come in those colours even if the trim has been swapped - anyone remember the blatant MAXI II purporting to be from 1973 a few months back? Maybe this is the ringer in the other direction....

Imported from elsewhere e.g. Eire and given the current year mark? This used to happen before 1983. DVLA probably didnt used to record the year of manufacture accurately when doing this :?

Yuejin Xinkai 2.5 Petrol Price: £4,495.00

That 'looks' identical to those Thai built Isuzu D-Max (or that's what they're called in Thailand). "Rodeo" here?

 

Googled the name, found the brochure here.

 

With a powerful licensed Toyota 2.4L petrol / LPG engine, ... the Yuejin XK

provides the tools to get the job done. Based on Japanese

technology and built to European quality standards in China,

the Yuejin XK surpasses its peers by setting a new low price

...

OK then... I guess this is a Chinese rip off (not a lisenced copy) the way they did with the Daihatsu Terios but didn't admit it. Then as a second kick in the balls to Isuzu (Toyota's biggest rival in the Asian truck market) they stuck a real Toyota lump in it! Oh those zany socialist entrepreneurs crack me up.

this seller is clearly too think to even spell his desired username correctly.

However there is something about a shitty horrible Capri that really appeals to me.

**IRONY ALERT** too think Pog? Really chap, standards are slipping! :lol::lol:

 

As for the Crapi, I agree, it calls to me too.

I wonder what the craic is with that then? Why it has to go for export - assuming it was a "personal import" for evaluation, and assuming they decided it was utter shit, still dont see why it has to go for export - the fact it has a UK plate means it must have passed a SVO or something....

Sounds like it was something agreed with the previous seller, but it seems doubtful that they'd be able to do anything about it.

Looks alright, like a Daewoolet Lacetti! Typical badging system in the corner, I love how most Chinese cars are named like industrial air conditioning units, it's all "BaoLu BA3150" and "Chongshen 533-PF" etc.

 

Still looking forward to all these Chinese imports to hit the market, for every toss-looking supermini there's a smart-looking Hirst Cabs 4-door. Come on China, pull your finger out!

That 520 badge looks like it's been nicked off a BMW

I concur, it sounds like its no longer straightforward to get an old style export certificate, so the lucky buyer *should* receive the V5C.I like the "520" boot badge that looks like surplus 1980s BMW stock.

red ford badges! Remember when that was all the rage (about 15 years ago)

I haven't seen one on a car for years... can you not sand the blue off modern ones then? I did mine black for some reason.
Yeah, I have memories of seeing red ones, never understood why though! What was it all about? I sometimes see Saabs with red badges too, saw a 9-5 with one on the way back from Bromley yesterday - what gives??

Hey, I had ORANGE ones, it was all about the colour-coding.

Just visible are the orange towing eye, half-orange wiper arms and orange "RS" stickers on the wings :oops: and you cant see the orange oil filter, HT leads and rocker cover. Never did apply the 6mm orange pinstripe I bought though :) I blame Fast Ford magazine :lol:

well it's not BX58BZT or is it ??

 

Vehicle Registration Mark BX58BZT

MakeRIYA

ModelRR G FORCE

Transmission & fuel type PETROL

Body Type MOPED

Referance the Maxi - i guess he's got an X reg one in probably better nick, buys a tax exempt and and puts the id from that onto his 1981 Maxi. Instead of scrapping the old one he's trying to recoup some money. ?????

certainly not an 'X' reg in that colour / spec...
