Hello all! Forgot to keep checking back to see if I'd been approved for membership so was a pleasant surprise to try logging in today and find I've got in! 

I joined mainly because I found a thread on Daihatsu YRVs with someone who appeared to be very knowledgeable, but from a cursory look around it seems like I'll quite enjoy it here - I've owned a fair amount of tat, shite, awful classics, dismal retros etc. in my time, but at the moment I'm down to just a couple of Mk1 Twingos, the aforementioned Daihatsu YRV, and a Eunos Roadster (among other more modern things that don't belong here). I imagine the Twingo is the only one people would want to see so you can have a photo of it, count yourselves very lucky!

I'm a motor trader/Japanese importer by day as well, so more than happy to help out with anything related to that side of things! 

Ha!  I've seen this car - and you - but couldn't quite collar you to say hello.  I tend to park in that car park when I'm at the Co-op!  What is that Blue Nissan you have?  Don't think I've seen one around before!

Evening all,

Here is my entry in Autoshite territory at last, my Renault 11 TL. 181k miles, spent the last 20 years kerbside in East London being used as a daily workhorse.

Drove it up to South Staffs last weekend and didn't miss a beat.

I did catch Covid picking the F@%$er up though so currently isolating and scouring the web for R9 / 11 info, of which there does not appear to be a lot, so any help would be much appreciated.

I will start a dedicated thread once I'm out of newbie prison.

I owe you one. If that's the ULEZ refugee I think it is, I came perilously close to winning it a few weeks ago. I was the winning bidder with less than an hour to go!

I got the impression from the ad that it's a well-used but very well-maintained car. Glad to see it's gone to a good home and looking forward to reading all about it!

Hello Everyone! I like cars and have been talking shite for years so this seems like the ideal place for me. Auto-wise I have a Tesla which is the best thing since sliced bread and a 106 Rallye – which is sliced bread. I also have a load of other shite which will no doubt come out in the wash. The Wife has a 03 plate XC90 T6, a van, a Bedford TL horse box (weirdly she has no horses?) and a grey Ferguson Tractor. Our neighbours don’t talk to us.

You can't just say "a van" and hope it passes unnoticed!  Some of us here are van pervs, having grown up with them and driven a huge variety in our working lives.  There's a heck of a difference between a 1963 Thames 400E and a 2013 Transit!

 

Oh and, welcome aboard!

Very well used is how I'd describe it, but it's solid and honest.

Lovely stuff.  We had an automatic one in the fold for a while, mostly owned by @RobTwho is a shiter of most excellent repute.  Please start a thread on it, and hope you're now over the 'Rona.

Thanks, well over the 'rona now fortunately. Will get a thread going shortly.

Ahh, the sales overflow car park! That blue thing is a Nissan Tiida, you won't find many over here as they only seemed to be dealer imported by Arnold Clark (I believe?) in Scotland, and in very small numbers. Not a bad little motor but I've just been struggling to find the enthusiasm to get round to it, I've moved it to work now so no more taking up spaces in the car park! Do feel free to collar me if you catch me again!

Will do - I think I saw you at Barrington too on Jan 1st 2019?  A few of us from my village (just past Caxton) are going in Jan - maybe see you there!

Welcome to the forum. Tea urn is in the corner and there were some cookies and hobnobs in the tin but @Dan302and  @dollywobblerwere  seen nearby and they scoffed a load of them 🤣
