Trying to reduce the fleet so have put this on carandclassic tonight.Only reason for sale is I just don't use it enough, having covered less than 900km since its test in February. Large (very!) comfortable 7/8 seater. Hi/Lo ratio plus selectable 4wd. Two tyres new, two nearly. 5.7 litre V8 Petrol, 4 speed auto. Radio/cassette plus 6 CD player. 3 rows of seats, cloth trim. Tow bar and electrics. Big and black, was big and red until a few years ago. Ask for any info, happy to drive anywhere in it, will deliver for fuel plus a train ticket home. Or I will collect from train station etc etc. Asking 3k on C&C but shiters reduction/deal on offer.

£50 a ticket (for £3k) would be the priciest roffle ever but also potentially secure one lucky* sod what is basically the floor space of a block of flats, so arguably the best value for money.

 

I'm much too much of a chicken to enter myself, of course, and simply want to see the Autoshite version of Fear Factor... :-D

Is this the one Kinkersaab almost offered on here a year or two ago, seem to remember a mate locally having it.

Or are the Highlands swarming with RHD Suburbans, that only get fired up in the second week in August every year?

 

No, that was a conversion to a US Chevrolet, and this one is in much better condition

I'm sitting drooling - but apparently the old car rule is coming in for Brussels as of 1st Jan and we'll be banned using them!!!

I live last road onto ring, forest everywhere - but it'll cover me too……. fuckers!

Will do some research...…….

Black and silver french plate obvs :)

Sold?

 

I see it’s marked as such on C&C. Hope you got a good solid buyer. I’ve read this ad far too many times!

 

No! Thanks for the heads upon C&C. I tried to list it under Chevrolet as well as I thought not many people would look under Holden. That advert did not appear, so assumed they did not approve it as it was a duplicate, never thought they would cancel the Holden advert! It is nearly midnight so will sort it tomorrow.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
       
      MEH.
