Ramrod's Disorganised Diecast Sale

Recommended Posts

And another box wrapped and ready to go.  If you're getting a box from me, it'll have a return-address sticker on, or possibly more than one, with MrsR's name on.  She keeps getting them in various charity mailings so we might as well use them!

Received a box of random Husky delights today, thanks Eddy.

I'd completely forgotten about the Commer Walk-Thru and Milk tanker that I had as a kid, those and the other lorries are brilliant.

I hope it wasn't you that restored that Matchbox 109 Safari with plasticine wheel trims and magnolia emulsion!

Bit of hot water and a nail brush worked wonders.

Glad you're pleased!  Plasticine wheel trims?  I was a big fan of the stuff, certainly, but not that big!  No, it's one I picked up somewhere or other, no idea when.  I've been collecting all my life, so it's anybody's guess.

I've been to the lockup again today and brought back three big boxes.  Unfortunately they have yielded very few diecasts, but a whole load of plastic kits.  I didn't realise I had so many!  This of course means that one day next week I need to go again and dig some more.

I have some in a box for you.  If you prefer not to wait for the next batch I'll message you tomorrow about the details.

 

Same goes for everyone who put in an order and hasn't seen anything arrive yet.  I'm probably waiting until I have the next batch to show you in case there's something you like, and then you're not paying more postage than you have to.  I have several small batches of cars labelled-up for various Shiters,  In my lockup there is definitely at least one more box loaded with diecasts, I just haven't dug it out yet.  Catsinthewelder has seen my lockup, he can vouch for the volume of "stuff" that's in there!

I found some plastic cars.  Tomte something?  They've all suffered at my Humbrolled hands, but if you want to clean them off they're a quid each, being more like 1/43 scale.

      I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical.
      Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November.  Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age.

      More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run.
      Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference.
      Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.

      Hi all,
       
      As you know I've got a new car! 
       
      I like it.
       
      By no means is it perfect but then I didn't expect it to be. I'll dedicate this thread to the Ins & Outs of the 06 plate Saab. 
       
      Looking through the car there is no Service history - So I'll start my own, first job will be Oil & Filters change. Will get it in for reluctor ring change to at some point. There's also an error with the fuel filter, the sensors cover is smashed ergo, its letting water in putting the EML on.
       
      I shall sort those.
       
      Bodywork is fine, Very little in the way of rust/rot. Front bumper has clips missing so a corner below the headlight pops off, no great shakes - but I'll sort it. Alloys have a few scuffs & dings but will clean up nicely. Tyres are all nearly brand new- winter ones too. I need a new passenger side door mirror glass - there's a stick on lens at the moment over the top of the original glass as the original glass is somewhat damaged - I'll get that done soon (ebay).
       
      There's a knack to getting the key in & out of the ignition, put into reverse and then some more whilst lifting key is the trick. Maybe an adjustment can be made to fix that - in time!
       
      Everything electrical seems to work fine!
       
      Freebies: Dashcam (works perfect), Bluetooth system (again working perfectly), tyre compressor machine thing (in the spare wheel well)
       
      It runs & drives fine, no knocks bangs or clunks - and more than powerful enough - second gear it can pin you to your seat! 133k on the clock so its due belts, which will be done ASAP.
       
      It's also very very comfy!
       
      Going to get a full valet at the weekend and a good clean (pics to follow, Before & after).
       
       
      Keep your eyes open for updates!!!!
       

       
       
      PS - Interior shots to come soon!

      Ok, so I've discussed this with mods and they have said it's ok to go ahead.
      There was a book where a writer who was living off his girlfriend's income, decided he was going to start trading his way up with swaps, writing about his experiences along the way, the thing he saw right in front of him was one red paperclip, so that's what he started with. It's a great story and a great book and I thought I would try it.
      This thread is where I will attempt my "red paperclip" challenge and record anything interesting that happens along the way, meeting up to swap wherever possible, though me living in mid Wales does mean I'm a million miles from anyone, so this might not always be possible.
      Not going to use a red paperclip as that's been done, so I'm going to start it off with.....
      A timing tool kit for V8 BMW engines, originally bought to use on a 2003 range rover....
      Same as this:

      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??

      The scrappers offered me £150 for this, but so far I haven't had the heart to see it crushed. It's a great little car, fairly low mileage and drives brilliant. I got it from a family member, ran it for a year and had great fun with it.
       
      It's a runner. MOT expired. Last time it had an advisory for a rusty sill. Doesn't look that bad to me but I haven't poked it too hard. Starter motor doesn't always engage but the last time it was tried it started first turn of the key. Starter motor aside, everything works apart from one wheel has a slow puncture.
       
      In my ownership it had new front tyres, and new speakers in the doors. I even fitted some Eibach sport springs and a new set of KYB shock absorbers. It handles brilliant and at the time I was toying with the idea of entering some Autosolo events in it. That never happened, but it's still a fun cheap little thing to thrash around.
