eBay tat volume 3.


Recommended Posts

I think the jist of this is:

 

He owns a shitty camper and wants a top quality repair for £700

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Restoring-Vw- ... 2a259e01a1

 

Thats awesome, he wants his Camper van primed, painted and lacquered inside and out, plus the bumpers repaired and painted, PLUS sort out the wiring that he's buggered up, for 700 quid! I can just imagine what that would be like, he'll be ringing up every fucking day and coming round your unit checking up and picking holes in every bloody thing.

 

and you can guarantee he wouldn't pay on that basis!

When I used to be in the trade 10 years ago that Glamper Wagoon would have eaten £200 of materials easy peasy.

Production paper, panel wipes, thinners, filler, knifing putty, hardener, masking tape, masking paper, compound, mops, oh and paint and clear which is crazy money these days and you'll need a lot!

Think it'll be a get what you pay for job. ie he'll get complete shit.

Did send him a missive mind, asking if he could give me the number of whoever can do that lot for £700 as I got a couple of grands worth of work for them ha ha

One of my mates had a Scoupe Turbo, years ago. For about 3 hours. He ended up in someone's garden, having gone clean through the wall. He bought another one, an N/A, and stuffed it under the arse end of a Range Rover. His father then bought him an Orion 1.6D....

Buy this and be a WINNAR

$(KGrHqRHJDoFCCL6G3JeBQnRj8jb,Q~~60_35.JPG

It's orange, ugly, and fucked. What more do you want? Currently £454.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1967-goggomob ... 27cccd79b4

And a large bill with uwe staufenburg gets you all the bits needed. I'd ride in it. But then again buying one would make it my third goggomobil.

 

The 400cc one is the one to go for if you're a speed freak.

'This truck starred in my new film 'Ferrous Bailer's Gay Moth' about a scrap man who took a day off from stealing cars and lying about MOT exemption to take his pet moth to the vet. Derek had spotted another male moth showing off flitting round and got so excited he burnt his knob on the lightbulb, resulting in him fainting and Arthur having to give him the kiss of life. They both went to the HIAB (High Intensity Animal Burns) unit at the local vets and have been inseperable ever since. The film highlights their life together, how they sleep in a high vis jacket at race meetings and the sad demise of Derek as he ate what he thought was a mint imperial. It's a stirring, emotional film about young love, lying bastards and stolen Granadas. Available at all good Betamax stores and quite a few shit ones too.

Hmm, I'll admit I've not seen either Quantum Of Solace or Skyfall; in which one is there a Barried up Hi-Lux?

For the same money you could have this, which looks/sounds boss although it's not the best advert ever

..Alternatively for less than a 3rd of either asking prices you could have this beauty. I am not sure if I was oblivious to their existance or if I have blocked it from my mind:

Pretty good workhorse

 

Fair enough,

Be like Bollox for £495:

 

$(KGrHqJHJE8FBzeRNziUBQmPrkd2n!~~_12.JPG

 

220s are frikkin' ace!

£495 dealer asking price reflects just how deeply unfashionable these things are, I reckon this one's VALU with full test and only 83k.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190751026137

 

 

Any 220 lovers out there are invited to get in touch, mine is going to be redundant come 1st dec. Its got a cracked windscreen and a bit of rust along the top edge will need dealt with before the screen can be replaced, so its effectively unsellable and therefore fit only for the bridge. If anyone can offer it a better home than that its theirs. nearly a years ticket and new cambelt. PM me

Cheapish looking Lotus, ok not the most popular model, but cheap non the less.

Make Great V8 Conversion Project

 

Personally I'd put something light and high revving, Honda VTEC for example, in it.
