Ramrod's Disorganised Diecast Sale

Recommended Posts

Noel: no, sorry, someone 's already grabbed that.


To those who have sent me messages or posted on here when they've paid or their models have arrived: THANK YOU!  I really appreciate knowing these things, mostly because I have so little trust in "the system."


Two more boxes for tomorrow's post...

A fine box of Asda Frosted Flakes from Mr Ramrod's diecast emporium was waiting on the doorstep when I got home. Inside were many delights that will grace the Shite in Miniature thread soon. A++ cellar, wood bye from agane.

I thought he was providing breakfast when my parcel arrived!

I've dug out some bigger ones...


The fire truck is £1 because it seems to be complete, the others are 50p each because they're all parts cars for various reasons.


Here's what's left of the ones you've seen so far...








There WILL be more.  May not be many more of the small stuff, but I think there are some left, somewhere; but the bigger models, 1/43 or thereabouts, include quite a few that I would consider parts cars.  You might as well have those if you can use them, because I don't think I'm going to.


Watch this space, as they say.

Ed, I have decided I might after all find room for those Tomte Lardahl rubber Mercs!   Can you put them down to me at whatever the original price was please mate and I would also like the Husky Ferrari LM (it is next to a bright green GT40 in your pic...)


Thank you sir.

Batman figure would be handy

I've just packed him, sorry!


1:32 car kits?


Or even builts and diecasts 1:28 to 1:36


Also Scalextroshites

I've just packed a bunch of these kits too, but there may very well be more to come.  I'm sure there will be the odd 1/36 Corgi, in fact I know there's a Mercedes taxi; builts, you say?  I might be able to help you there!  I'll shoot some pics tomorrow for you...

re: builts and diecasts


I've been motorising shite for Scalextric use. Hence keeping the scaling quite tight.

The Corgi Acclaim is running ok, having a Polistil chassis bolted home, but pinion slippage is part of the shakedown issues. Maybe it's the twin Mikuni carbs; too powerful for it :-P


The Jada Batmobile will look daft without a driver figure. No need with Saico Herbie Beetle, because Herbie drove himself - well, he did in those films.


I'll go now.

      I've had various threads on the go for different collections this year, but thought I'd condense my threads into one manageable thread to document my ham-fisted tinkering.

      At the turn of the year I was driving a nice, dependable, modern 2011 Peugeot 407 and no other vehicle. It was nice enough, but boring as feck. I'd bought it after a series of disastrous heaps in the awkward age bracket of being new and valuable enough to worry about but old enough to be fucked. The 407 was just too new, too bloated and dull. I had a hankering for old metal, my Mineral Oil withdrawal pangs were strong.

      From January I started looking, there were eBay bids, missed reserves, wasted trips from Gumtree and other such nonsense. I happened on an automatic Rover 216 GSI with one giffer owner from a year old. The chap was giving up driving at 93 years old and his grandson was moving it on. I bid, and failed. It was in London though, about 420 miles away so I wasn't all that bothered. Of course when he offered it to me for my losing bid after the winning buyer was a no show I said yes. I was on the Megabus down to that London overnight for about £15. I hung about in Liverpool Street station like a mad shivering jakey until my train out to the suburb for my first sight of the new steed. It was battered outside but had been well looked after. A frankly insulting amount of cash changed hands and I was away up the road.

      We had many adventures together, it was dependable and it whet my appetite for interesting old motors again and proved that the very bottom end of the market was navigable if I had the patience to wade through the sea of shit to find the odd pearl.

      The 407 was still on the fleet at this point but I was covering a lot of miles in the Rover, with a long commute though the fuel economy wasn't ideal. When a friend's mother was looking for a new diesel saloon to replace the faithful old Xsara she had a scheme was concocted. I sold the 407 to her and was on the hunt for an interesting replacement.

      When I was growing up my dad had a succession of hopeless shitters, indeed I was brought home from the hospital as a newborn in a brush painted Skoda Super Estelle. The best car he had was a red XUD Peugeot 405 with air conditioning and electric windows. So when I found a 1994 GTXD advertised by someone who could actually compose a car advert in the fashion you would expect of a human being educated to a Primary School level, I pounced.

      Of course I couldn't buy a car just down the road so it was on the train to Birmingham. First class no less. I stayed in an absolute flea pit of a hotel and drove up the road the next day. This was a proper bit of nostalgia and a really practical borderline classic car. It had been fastidiously maintained by the previous owner. Apart from there being a hole where there was once a stereo and the lack of working air con it was a pleasant drive home.

      Given their relative scarcity and how dependable this one has proven so far, it's a keeper, I'd struggle to part with it.

      Two cars just wasn't enough to worry about, so this Citroen C1 was acquired. Pure Aleppo spec. A camel can go for weeks, or months without stopping at a watering hole, the C1 has a similar thirst for Motor Spirit. Man maths were employed and worked out that it would easily* pay for itself.

      There have been further movements, I'll recap them shortly. I should probably do some work.

      Lads, lads, lads. Its been ages since I bought a thing, and I LOVE BUYING THINGS. I couldn’t sleep last night, for instance. 
      I feel great because buying vehicles SOLVES ALL OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS (apart from parking permits). 
      Anyway, I just agreed to buy a thing, with collection commencing today or tomorrow. 
      In the meantime, let’s spy on the vendors house on street view shall we? My little bundle of joy is tucked in behind that rather tasty 164.

      Bought this off Bramz last month, done a few hundred miles in it.  Perfectly reliable, school run kaos etc
      But had some sudden and big household bills loom, so having a big sell-off

      MOT is only to end of this month though. But everything works - all windows, no dash warnings; it's been a handy and hunky dory motor car.  Interior tidy.  Exterior pretty clean, bar the odd knock and scuff and arch bubble.  It's not a shed by any means.
      History file though up to a point, recent bills for service items, but cambelt roulette.  132k.  Tyres are about 18 months old, but they are budget ditchfinders.  I intended to keep it, wanted this exact spec for years, but will have to let it go after all.
      It will need that dicky front caliper replacing as the stickiness comes back after a few days after freeing it off.  Discs look to have little time left on them too.  Bonus is being the non-Turbo it has drums on the rear.  Synchromesh scratchy when cold, clutch feels a bit crunchy action but plenty of meat there
      Bonuses are: it's green, it's the estate, excellent heater, it's AWD for snowzombievirus kaos, got insurance cover it on classic multicar policy (Hagerty) as now it's old enough 1998
      I just need to get my money back.  It owes me 400 notes.  Can go today
      Yes, the number plate is now fixed properly

      Located M1 corridor Watford <> Luton
      £7 a ticket or 3 for £20
      I'm keeping the Alfa 156 Wagon for now

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.
