Nice to see you back SL :) 

 

I'm sure that Picnic also had Celica GT4 running gear?  or did they do another one?

On-and-off, I think I 'celebrate' 15 years on AS next month!

More on the Picnic Sport here: https://mag.toyota.co.uk/toyota-heritage-fleet-the-story-of-the-picnic-sport-turbo/

Apparently they kept it as FWD but added an MR2 Turbo engine.

4wd versions were available elsewhere, that's what the kit I built represented.

That's a great read - and pretty much what my friend from Japex and I have agreed we will do to the Avensis when time is eventually called on this engine.

Like good manners and chequebooks, you see fewer and fewer of these with every year that passes.

Plenty to make it worthwhile.  There's the odd random quote like

Quote

Old Girl with the heart of a Teen

(strangely arousing)

Quote

Revered by Aston Martin test engineers (I kid you not) for her perfect performance envelope, whatever one of those is. Don't be fooled by those plush seats and retro walnut dash; pop the little button on the side of the auto shift and she transforms from middle-aged aunt into a snarling tigress

(weirdest boner ever)

And it's a proper auction.  You know - where the highest bidder wins the car pisses the owner about and then you can sweep in with a nice offer.

this is i think going to be much more that just a "simple recommissioning" which is a shame,

Ambro's don't exist in any numbers any more, and this one does look like a really good one, 

sad....

these are my favourite mini variants, the Riley and the Wolesley, and this been the Riley one  is super lovely inside.

tail fins and leather trim, what more could  you want in a classic car.

i wonder just what my metro is worth, if this is £1200? i know that this one has a test, and mine currently does not, but that will be put right after we get the hydragas cans replaced next month.

Cheap M Sport coupe.  Often these are driven hard but that perfect 50:50 weight distribution will see you through 👍

Boring silver, but interior looks nice

Oh?

After you with the deerstalker hat and magnifying glass, but I deduce the 50:50 weight distribution is no substitute for driver ability

No idea on Metro values, but until two weeks ago my cars lived at that very farm. Septic schoolbus a dead giveaway.

Re the M Sport, it looks like some of the pics were taken at the scene of the damage. How many points do you score for hitting an AA van?

He's taken that 'Left turn only' sign a bit too literally by the look of it
