Those of you who havent heard from me - sorry!  I'll try and get in touch before much longer.

 

 

with ref to 4C as labelled by junkmeister- i never knew the sooper cooper came in any other colour than yellow!

 

Here's a better shot.  Don't know if it's perhaps a North American market colour?

Ah bollocks! Thread being bumped has reminded me that there's quite a few of you I haven't replied to yet. Will attempt to do so tomorrow (and might add pics of some Corgi Juniors I found in another carry case)

Righty - I've finally pulled my finger out of my arse and got back to MOST of you who patiently enquired.  There are private messages in the inboxes of Blakey79, Sierraman, Ultrawomble, Pandamonium, Rainagain, Pillock, and probably others too.  Sorry about the wait.

 

Having thoroughly washed my finger I then proceeded to rake through what I believe is the last of the small ones - all except for a white Majorette Sierra and a red Corgi Nova that I know will be lurking in a box that I haven't dug out yet.

Corgi Juniors first.  Highlights are AMC Pacer, Volvo 200 estate, X1/9, couple of Sierras and mk3 Escorts, SD1, XJ40, Merc 190 and a pair of Leyland Terriers.  Capri is already spoken for.

is a selection of late 1980s stuff that I generally took better care of than the older ones:

Private messages now with those who enquired, thanks.  Sealtainn, the 1/24 scale XR2i is still here, plus some small Corgi mk3 Escorts and one or two Matchbox mk1 Capris, also various mk1 Sierras including my dismantled red Corgi example shown earlier in the thread.  I'll have a look back through everything and let you know if there's anything else Ford-shaped.

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.
      £750

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New black kidney grilles. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
       
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
       
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
       
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
       
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
       
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
       
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
       
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!
       

       
      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
       
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
       
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
       
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
