Some idiot who works at the garage next door to my work has one just like this. It's slammed 2 da weeds on pink banded steelz and the wheels even have stupid camber on them. The bonnet is matt black and the rear side windows are stickerbombed. It looks absolutely ridiculous. He drives it like a knob too, tailgating and trying (and usually failing) to hang the back end out on every corner.

I don't know his name, but he fits your 'owner demographic' perfectly  :lol:



All I can say is...

I see a lot of these with the number plate nestled on the dashboard, with the old excuse of ‘oh officer it fell off earlier...’


Just seen one earlier outside work, some absolute cock was mouthing off to the police when they pulled him up about it. I think a quick smack of the headlamp lenses might have changed his tone followed by a fine for driving an unroadworthy vehicle.


How do some of these fine automobiles pass the test anyway when they’ve had the camber fucked about with or had the pump timing messed with to cause all that dense black smoke?

What a fucking nail. Sometimes I wish I’d been an MOT tester and had the opportunity to write the death certificate on something like that.



Or a traffic copper. Pull 'em over, get them on the back of a recovery truck to a compound. I'd have the surrounding areas clear of that sort of rubbish in weeks.

And, of course, my buyer has sent me a message.


An hour before he's supposed to turn up.


"Hi, I'm not coming up today as I've found a car closer to home. Good luck with the sale".


He did give a thumbs up emoji though so that's alright then.

This is what happens when sentimentality rules over the wallet. Strip it and get some coin for the good bits. Whoever buys it probably won’t be cherishing it, it will either be shuttling between the tip or it will get ‘improved’ by some idiot. I’d just put the poor fucker out of its misery and break it if you could see £600 out of it. You are trying to do an idiot a favour, Alex or whatever they call him won’t be thanking you for saving it.

      Yesterday I was in hospital having surgery on my ankle so rather than rest like the surgeon said I have arranged to go and collect my new car.
      I have been awake all night in pain so what could possibly go wrong! Luckily it's only a couple of hours round trip so I reckon I can do it, if I get really tired on the way back the accommodation in my new car is positively palatial and I can rest up on the heated rear seats.
      Can't wait!

      A strange day yesterday where both me and Mrs Cheeze both bought cars. She is getting a 65 plate Civic which she says she will keep for 10 years - hopefully.
      I got a Jaguar XJ6 4.0 Sovereign for significantly less than the cost of her Civic. I'd been keeping an eye on it on Gumtree the last month and the price had been creeping down and I managed to get it a bit cheaper still. With a bit of googling it appears it went through the Morris Leslie classic auction in August. I paid a bit less than it went through there at.
      Surprisingly Mrs Cheeze likes it and my Dad loves it. There is some rust on the roof and a giffer repair on one of the arches but it seems solid. Scabby bits here and there but nothing terminal. It has done 59,000 miles and only seems to have done a couple of thousand in the last few years.
      It drives nicely but doesn't change up as soon as it should I feel. It isn't going into third until 30mph and fourth isn't until about 75mph. You can induce it to change up by booting it and backing off but thats not ideal. I need to check the fluid level. If it is still doing it after that I'll get a gearbox service done on it.
      It is surprisingly small inside. I went to pick up my big mate last night in it and even with the passenger seat right back he was struggling. He managed once I had reclined it a bit.
      Some pictures. The pictures flatter it.

      So at least a bunch of you will recognise my much hacked about Invacar (AC Model 70 actually to be technically correct), KPL139P from my blog thread.
      With the arrival of Dollywobbler's former spares car the decision was made to return that to the road rather than KPL as it was in far better overall condition.
      So since then she has donated her engine, brakes and gearbox to TPA.
      It seems a shame to just throw away the leftovers though. Given the repeated comments we've both had from people saying we should stick a silly bike engine or something in it, there seems to be interest in some madcap projects.
      I reckon with a roof chop, custom front end built and a suitably mad engine you could make a truly epic 2/3rd scale replica hot rod with it. I however have neither the time nor resources.
      The chassis will need a couple of repairs due to water having got trapped beneath the floor, but is overall sound. Sound and utterly over-engineered for what it is.
      She already has a V5C present and in my name, so just needs a (Class III) MOT to allow you to change the vehicle type to motor tricycle and tax class to historic.
      I need the garage space back, so if anyone wants to take this on as a crazy project, it's all yours.
      It has tyres that are holding air sufficiently that it can roll for loading purposes just fine.


      A pair of somewhat dodgy doors can be had if required, I just need to swap some bits over before I'm done with them. Rear windscreen is missing, windscreen is present and serviceable, and I have good door glass available if you want it.
      If you're thinking ditching the body, sticking a roll cage on and making a crazy off-road buggy that might be immaterial...plenty of suspension travel and compliant springs...that could work actually...
      If you're interested, let me know.
      Really not looking for anything for it, but if you'd like to contribute towards the camper and Invacar restoration fund anything will be appreciated.
      I'd rather have it out the way sooner than later to be honest, but if you're interested but cannot get it picked up until a given date I'm sure we can arrange something.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone
