AX of significant autoshitical interest

Recommended Posts

The V5 turned up this morning so as alluded to elsewhere on the forum, it’s roffle time, guys and gals.

 

I was the lucky* winner of this fine steed a short while back and having enjoyed its Gallic charm (and lowered the average local house prices by several percent due to the unique* paint job), it’s time to move it on to someone more deserving.

 

Not a lot to say about it that hasn’t been said elsewhere tbh...it looks as rough as a badgers arse from anything closer than about 25 foot due to impressive amounts of lacquer peel but it drives well...very well indeed.

 

Mileage is in the region of 63k miles, a figure unlikely to increase daily as the speedo doesn’t work.

 

I’ve had it up on the ramp at work and it’s remarkably clean and original underneath...it needs a nearside front CV boot which I’ll attend to this week and the radio reception is pants due to a broken aerial plug behind the dash...once again, that’ll be sorted so the next lucky winner can enjoy bangin’ choons.

 

Other than that, it’s as it arrived...there are four nearly new tyres, half a tank of unleaded and an A-frame in the boot so it can be attached to your luxury 1980s damp transit based motor home for cross country capers.

Currently located in Fence, BB12, the price of tickets for this fine automobile is a ridiculously low £6 each or a once in a lifetime, never to be repeated, multi-buy offer of two for a tenner.

 

Any questions, suggestions or offers of ridiculous swaps for non-runners etc, fire away!

List updated.

 

2 complementaries for Snagglepuss as it’s his fault I was landed with.....err, was lucky enough to win it in the first place.

 

Also, a couple for ohdearme in recognition of collectioneering over and above the call of duty. It’d look nice on the back of his Sharan.

It's now two years since I bought it off eBay for £185(!), It was listed as towing equipment!

 

Brill little car that my other half still hates me for selling. I drove it to from Reading to Colchester and back and it was fine. A little bit slight for modern traffic but who cares.

 

That velour interior is ace.

Fuck it, 1 and 59 please. You do realise if I win it it will cost me another 500 drinking vouchers to fit a tow bar to the motorhome don't you ?...

But just think what a winner you’d be with this tied to your rear end.

All updated...

 

Over a third sold already in a little over 4 hours so at this rate, we could be on for a midweek draw, folks.

 

Just think how much better* your life could be waking up to this vision of maroon beauty as you throw back your bedroom curtains each morning.

 

Single? Simply stick this on your POF profile and I can guarantee* you’ll be knee deep in potential suitors by the weekend. In fact, the first thing Claire said to me when she saw it was, and I quote, ‘if you bring that home, you can go and get f***ed’.

And I drove it from Reading to (near enough) Colchester. Used it a few times for my commute down the M11 and A13 during  bad weather, and survived. Comfy car with a fantastic heater. 

 

No need for such a heater in this bit of Spain, so I'm out. GLWTR.

Ridiculous swap offer? Rover with nearly a quarter of a million miles? :D

      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?
