Buick Park Avenue for sale - 7 tickets left

If someone sets up a go fund me page for the fuel for Sealtainn to drive it to Shetland I'm happy to chuck a tenner in (that should just about get it to the end of wuvvum's street)

Yeah I'll give him a tenner.

 

But for that I would like to have a sit in it in Newcastle!

Sealtainn has form, having collected the Granada from me in south London and driving it back to The Shetlands. So wouldn't be surprised if he does the whole trip himself...

I’m thinking I really need it with a new MoT as I haven’t got another week off from work till 15th April. Is anyone able to arrange MoT and hold on to it for me till then? I’ll happily send money for repairs.

Hopefully plans will fall into place and a collection will take place next week as a fellow lunatic (sorry, enthusiast) has very kindly offered to collect said bucket of magnificence and keep hold of it till I’m able to collect and in the meantime put it to Stevie Wonder Motors for an MoT. Updates to follow

I’m thinking that as their appears to be so many masochists on here who want a shot of this fine & noble steed that instead of collecting it myself we could do a 200 leg relay up country or something (if there were enough people willing to, of course).

Either that or I’ll collect from Rob or somewhere else if it’s made it’s way further up country.

What say you, fellow internet lunatics?

If insurance is sorted and I somehow have a way to get home, sign me up!

I've arranged to collect it from Wuv tomorrow, and will try to book an MoT for Wednesday/Thursday. The garage I use are old car friendly and do their best to get them through, so fingers crossed. I'll have a go trying to sort the insecure battery fail before the test.

 

I'm looking forward to wafting back to London in this!

It’s pronounced Shell-Tan and it means Shetland in Scottish Gaelic

Aha - I figured it was Gaelic. I speak Irish where "ea" is usually pronounced to sound like the "a" (flat A) in "bath"!

I'd be up for getting involved in that.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am
    • By Broadsword
      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
