eBay tat volume 3.


Recommended Posts

I've added that Thema 8.32 to my watch list, so help me God.  Cort16, it's ALL YOUR FAULT.

 

Meanwhile in Sensibleland, here's a lovely early Micra with the 'swallowtail' boot.

Do people go crazy for these like they do for swallowtail mk1 Golfs?  No, didn't think so.

You're messing with my head, man.

 

I'm also liking this, which would fit right in on here.  No bids so far at £100.

A total heap with a toxic interior and rusty exterior

 

Feels like it will go on forever, if anyone can bear to drive it

 

Want.

"Swallowtail" Micra, Golf?  Wot?        Still don't understand "flat front" SaaBs either.

Swallowtail Micra is a term I just made up, but the early K10s are like the yellow one I posted and the later ones look like this (except they're usually on chopped springs with stretched tyres over ATS Cups to be different*):

Note the shallower number plate recess and a straight crease across the tailgate, analogous to the Golf and hence the wittiness* of my reference.  Oh, never mind.

I applaud your pedantry with the capital B in SaaB, by the way, but don't want to push my luck by doing the same.

I really love this.

1.5D, 65K, long test. £325.

Basic, tidy and apparently well cared-for. Small dent in the tailgate - looks like it will push out.

It's in Chelmsford. Someone please buy it and drive it up here for me. I'll make you a nice cup of tea.

This has changed hands and is now being moved on again, for £170 more (so I love it a bit less now). In Norfolk.

I'd like to say something nice about this, but I can't because they're utter dog turd.

I'm glad thats a long way away. Looks lovely

 

 

I should have bought the one I saw at £40,000!

 

My uncle used to have one. It was never cheap, but I bet he wished he still had it now.
