Just add yellow boiler suit for hilarious antics at a venue of your choice.

Also one for the Bus Spotters?

I love everything about this.  I had no idea that Plaxtons ever built anything like this, and it pleases me that they built it to the same profile as their coaches, as well as using that classic (yes...classic) brightwork down the side. I would quite happily live in this. Might change that sticker to say Chemsafe Cottage.

Don't know if anyone likes VW Bays, but if you are looking for a retirement challenge this might be up your street.

Mind you, looking at the pictures and reading the apt description you'll need to have retired really really early to stand a chance of finishing it.

Not sure what to make of "Smells of ghost farts" in the description:

friend of a friend is selling that on behalf of his deceased brother.  He also also had green SD1 V8 

I've just sent the seller an email. Would you be able to pass a message on to him? Might appear a little more genuine than an "anonymous" email.

I OWN a J-plate 820i that has neither climate nor aircon. Nor alloy wheels, electric rear windows or much wood. 😄

Those weren't seen as so necessary then? Especially with the cost of 'extras'

I can vouch that Mr Khan is an arrogant, tasteless little tosspot, and that his creations are laughable garbage. I used to work for another company that customised JLR vehicles  when the original Defender was still being made. We were given two brand new 110 Defender Station Wagons, fresh from the Kahn shitshops, to have automatic gearboxes fitted (one of our services). They had crap aftermarket (probably fake) bucket seats fitted in the front, and all the seats had been retrimmed in Burberry-style chav fabric; think the retro plaid seats you get in Golf GTIs now, but about 10x worse. Stitching quality was nowhere near as good as OEM. They'd also lined the dashboard in chav plaid, and fitted a metal steering wheel that was about as thick as it was wide (probably like the person who ordered it). The rear load area had had the useful seats removed, and a no-doubt eye-wateringly expensive audio system installed. Just what you want in a dedicated offroad vehicle. There were other crimes besides, which I can't quite remember. On the outside, the thing was covered in shitty little extra LED lights front and back, and had plastic stick-on arch extenders (yes, stick-on), the sort that cover the entire front wings and rear quarters, with fake plastic chrome cap screws to make them look like they were bolted on. They were also fitted with normal Defender Sawtooth alloys, but had Khan centre caps that probably trebled the cost (I have my suspicions that the alloys were actually sawtooth replicas). Any actual functional mods to the machinery? Nope, not a single one. Standard engine, suspension, tyres, axles, etc. All just superfluous shit.

We fitted the gearboxes, and then rang up Khan to come and collect them. For two weeks they ignored us; probably figured that we could just provide them free indoor storage until they could be bothered to take them back. My boss even rang up Mr Khan directly and he basically said, "Nothing to do with me, ring the workshop.". Eventually my boss just rang up the workshop again and said, "We're no longer putting them inside at night, we're just going to dump them at the curb. You've been told." Funnily enough, the next day a couple of bellends from Kahn turned up and took them away. Twats.

1979 so its Historic vehicle taxation class eligible,  its Both a Big V8 AND a Diesel, its the ultimate fuck you to the ULEZ zone :) 

and bonus points if you manage to get it registered with TFL  as a car used by a blue badge holder so it then this massive wagon becomes congestion charge exempt to take the piss out of all of the London charge zones :)

Can't be 1979 on a Y, surely that's 1982/3 but may still sneak in at some point after August.

Apologies I see what you mean now!!! 1979 built but 1983 reg. 

Sadly shows 2 charges applicable on ULEZ. 

Need to wait another year to get a freebie. 

Plenty of time to mint it up then 🤣🤣🤣Screenshot_20220118-082238_Chrome.thumb.jpg.df26a133b39e41189f9d643b4dbf58ba.jpg

I think the Top Gear lads did better than that!

I hate the PT Cruiser anyway but that definitely takes the prize for the worst one ever. Even the convertible is better than that. The way the windows don’t line up is so amateur looking, suggests it will just fold up in a crash.

Prior to the 1st of August 1983, most imports, Military and other such vehicles registered late (like breakdown tenders), did not get age related number plates, and where just given current number plates based on their date of first registration :) (after the 1st of August 1983, imports and the such like where given Age related number plates although the odd one does slip through the net every now and then)

which meant you got some rather amusing "late registration madnes" going on at times :) 

for example here is a 1954 Volvo on an R suffix!

as for the ULEZ charge, the main online checker is not very reliable and will show all historic vehicles as needing to pay, however if you go to the actual pay charges page, it will correctly show historic vehicles as ULEZ exempt :)

I love them, from a great distance 😬 They are comfy to sit in but I think that’s where the positives end.😁
