I'd love to get one of these ratlook cars very cheap and turn it back into a standard car, then post it back up on the place it came from looking all mint and tidy.

What a sad old POS that is, you just know that those tyres are completely bald.
That reminds me of the OMG GT TURBO alike 1.1tl I sold on ebay a few years back.. I got it for free out some blokes garden, it was a right crock, bald tyres, didnt run properly, leaked, and had the worlds noisiest drivers side wheel bearing. I sold it for £95 BIN, and spent a fair while stipulating the mong from Notts tht bought it to trailer it home, unfortunately he ignored me warning and tried driving it anyway, then had the cheek to email me when the drivers wheel parted company with the car on his way home!!!!

Probablt to some POWAAARGH enhancing cold air intakes!

 

Saying that, those N/A 300ZX are one of my favourite cars ever, comfy, lovely driving positioned, pretty quick and glorious sounding. GR8!

This old Volvo has only done 98k! These have a nice spec on these SE models, and the 2.0 manual should be moar acceptable than the 2.3 auto one I had.

I also particularly like the "MPV" registration and 7 seats combo, much more classy than some flimsy Scenic or somesuch. I sneaked it onto Er Indoors watch list and upon discovery was met with the "don't you dare" stare, which is mildly disappointing.

Some excellent work carried out by this guy, which will no doubt lead to this granny going round the oval:

The car was in full working order but i have now removed and sold the recon v6 engine+gearbox,so the car is now a rolling shell...... I bought the car with the intention of fitting my much larger supercharged v engine in it,but it wont fit in the engine bay so im looking for another car.The front slam panel has been cut with a grinder

NICE WORK :roll:

Wow that is such a bad story!How much experiance has that guy even had? Surely a quick measure of the engine bay would have told him that it wouldnt work.SRSLY.Also, would it not be cheaper to just buy another engine and fit it?

This is nice, however the price is somewhat LOL-inducing at 2 grand! To be fair it has only got 7 previous owners and is the more desirable 1.8 carb engine. Also it has a super-low mileage of 109k which is backed up by no notable service history.

WOW, now heres a good project for the serious spanner twirler:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1996-DAIMLER-DOUBLE-SIX-LWB-AUTO-GREY_W0QQitemZ320469558578

 

I bought this car 8 months ago on the understanding the starter motor had packed in. The previous owner had left it stood for 2 years. When I put the vehicle on the ramp I found to my horror that it had a brand new starter motor on it. After a bit of further investigation I found that the engine was seized up. (conrod snapped)

 

I then bought myself a second hand engine from a double six that had had a rear end bump. (80,000miles) I removed the propshaft,gearbox and exhaust ready to remove the old engine and that is basicly where I got upto with the car.

To be fair, i'd have cut my losses when i realised the engine was seized!!! 10/10 for optimism!
