eBay tat volume 3.


Recommended Posts

This beauty is local to me in Grimsby and is on Facebook marketplace. I don't know the owner or the car though -

Grimsby Peugeot on Facebook. 

1983 Peugeot 104 for £450.

I'm on my phone and struggling to post photos but it's silver and is best described as toothless.  I will endeavour to post pictures as soon as I am near a computer.

Honest and fairly tidy breadvan Polo in need of a new sill, £400 start.  All the horny posh girls at university drove these.

These are pretty useable in 1272cc form, as long as you don’t expect too much of the brakes. Would.

Check out the giant phallus glued to the bonnet, and the aileron from some entirely other car stuck in the low pressure area behind the vertical rear screen where it’s guaranteed to maximise lift.

Mk.2 Polo brakes were truly piss-poor - they were not much more than press the pedal and hope for the best. Brodie Britain Racing (and others) used to sell Mk.2 brake upgrade kits for this very reason.

My cousin was in the market for a Polo in 1990 - he tried a nearly-new Mk.2 and came out ashen-faced. The Mk.3s came out toward the end of the year, so he bought a base-model 1043cc "Fox" having convinced himself that the brakes on those were infinitely better.....

Found yourself watching “Chernobyl” and thinking that the Soviet Union post explosion seemed like a nice place to be?

Live that dream!

They couldn't be arsed fitting a brake servo to RHD versions of the Mk2 Polo, that's why.

True. 

But it’s a matter of expectations: I’ve done about 70,000 miles in mk2 polos over the years, many of them con brio because I was young and brave/foolish, and never had a notable braking problem or even considered the brakes a particular shortcoming. They’re just softer than we’re now used to.

What! Just shy of 7 grand for that pile of wank, the selling dealer has a reputation for overpriced stuff and has reached new heights with this..

ah, another day, and another selection of BL's finest products for your amusement..

first off, a base allegro 1100, in vermillion, with 2 doors. they didn't get much cheaper than this!

shame about the top of the top of the n/s wing, cos the rest of the car looks mint.

watchlisted this, with a view to replacing the Rover with it.

even though i generally despise VAGshite.

there is a local one for sale, in a lurid applejack green (which i really like) with silly low miles, and an even sillier £3k asking price. this one for a grand is for realistically priced, imo.

A 164 that has done over 200,000 miles. Has appeal.

The basic steel wheels do suit it, although I thought 164s all had 5-stud wheels....? Also I thought that early 164s had masses of anonymous-looking switchgear in the central console, but this one seems to have got away without any.

Hyperbolic ad makes me think this will end up 'auction ended' before it gets to finish.  I remain to be pleasantly surprised.
