Can’t believe this hasn’t sold yet. 

I have had a AS member ask about it via PM last night funny enough and I'm just now awaiting a reply,  though I guess maybe some are waiting till the end of the month for payday? 

Thank's for everyone interest so far regarding starting a Roffle, not sure how to go about dividing £425 into 59 tickets as my math's makes £7 a ticket only £413  total or £8 is £472?

Do it at £8 a ticket.  Nobody here is going to resent you making an extra few quid because A) The winner gets an entire car for the price of a McDonalds 2) It's your car to sell for what you like and D) In 5 years time when threads like this reappear, we'll all laugh at someone getting an entire Cavalier so cheap.

£8.  I'll write up the list if you like.

Thank's my phone not so hot on the new AS, So if you didn't mind writing up the list to get things started for us that would be greatly appreciated.  

Knowing my luck if I sell the Cavalier values will shoot up over night. I've spent far more on this Car than I'll ever get back over the years but with 11 years happy motoring who can put a price on that?  

If everybody happy with £8 a ticket. The added bonus for me is it will also help cover the extra bill for the New Manifold Studs that are being fitted! 

The Cav will still be available For Sale till the Roffle is sold out for £425 as well. Insurance expires Monday. Tax is till Sept. So I'll leave the Tax on and I won't renew my Insurance for a week or so to save me getting mugged on cancellation fee's etc. 

I know I've been promising more pictures but work is clashing with getting the Cav collected before Sat at the minute.  So bare with me. Anything anybody wants to know about the Cav or if you would like to take a look,  just fire me a PM.

Got the Cav back tonight so managed to grab some quick pics. I'll draw up a Roffle list tomorrow for the people who asked for a ticket so far on a borrowed laptop. Unless Borniteldentity hasn't for me by then as kindly offered earlier

The Cavalier as you can see is in fair condition for it's almost 26 years.  Body has had arches and sills in the past and in my ownership some paintwork too. Interior is from a late model SRI but is tired / sun worn. Carpets are fine and I replaced the rear parcel shelf and stays last year.  Dashtop cracked but have a used top section to go with it.  Annoyingly the corner of the headlining has started to peel again I've noticed today. But will do my best to sort it this weekend. 

As mentioned there will be some free spares included and the new owner can also have first dibs on buying a spare 74k engine. Plus I have some other parts available for sale.

Hope that ^^ is okay. And accurate.

I haven't put Bramz on the list as he said 'AT LEAST two numbers'. 

No that's really appreciated!

If anybody needs me to alter the Roffle list just let me know. 

Sure Bramz will have brought 3 more cars by now and sold 3 more since his post anyway.

As i have some mk3 cavalier wheels and a bonnet on top of my garage,  i feel number 52 is mine. 

 

20190526_065954.jpg

 Funny enough I also have a bonnet in the garage here for the Cavalier that can be included and a steel rim somewhere too.

The other spares are stashed in the loft and under my bed.

Thank's for the pic it's cheered up a otherwise wet and dull morning, number 52 is yours.

The wheels have been there since about 2005 and the bonnet since 2011. 

 

I've also just remembered there a Cav rear bumper in my Dad's back garden that's been there almost 3 years. Whoops.

      If you saw the News 24 in the early hours you’ll have seen my next car is due since it’s back up north, so now the collection!
      So all I know of this car is the make and model, colour and year. And that it had an MOT. What have I gotten myself into? 
      Alexia, play Mr Blue Sky...

      This roffle DOES NOT include two new genuine wings. They would be available to purchase by the winner, or I'll sell them separately.

    • By gm
      this is mother gm with her little "redster" on the day I handed over the keys

      many adventures have been had over the past year but it is now time to find a new home for the plucky pug
      basic infos : 126350 miles, mot until October 2020, in the last year it has been serviced, had a new exhaust, battery and a set of winter tyres, it's a fun little thing to chuck about the back roads and, as you can see, is a breeze to park


      (she will kill me for using those photos)
      the waving elf has sadly been removed, it was deemed to be inappropriate for a funeral convoy last week
      the bodywork looks better in the pics than in the flesh, there are a number of scrapes and dings, at some point it's had an accident repair





      but the steelies are painted "Peugeot Rallye White" which more than makes up for it 
      inside is pretty clean, everything works as it should - not that there are many toys, the CD player has an aux in and the windows are electric, the gearnob is a genuine JakeBullet poolball, the parcel shelf is a gm original with one sony and one jbl speaker
      that speedo optimistic, it will not top a ton but will do 70 in second if you push it, 90 can be achieved in third, fourth or fifth - it doesn't seem to matter which 




      there is a spare tyre and toolz and a tottie wee engine in there somewhere


      so who's up for a random or two ? 
      tickets are £12 each or 2 for £20, PayPal preferred, it is taxed (only £20 a year) but not currently insured, location is Chester-le-street, the lucky winner can be collected from Durham or Newcastle station
      who wouldn't want to be this happy ?


       

    • By Schaefft
      With the month of January nearing its end, the time has come to let go of the Galant. Its been an absolutely brilliant car while I had it, but with my move to Edinburgh approaching quickly, and the lack of space to actually store most of my cars anywhere (I'm sure theres nothing to worry about), this one needs to go. I've written plenty about the car before, if you want an extensive amount of photos you can check my general fleet thread here or check my cross European collection thread from December here.
      If you can't be bothered, here are the details.
      1995 Mitsubishi Galant GLSi Hatchback
      1.8 4G93 petrol and a manual
      Just 61k miles, I've put around 2000 of those on it myself over the last 3 months, with a trip to Germany and back again resulting in no real complications.
      MOT until June
      In general, its in incredibly nice condition. As far as I know, it was granny owned and always garaged, with it not doing many miles at all over the last couple of years. It was then used by a family member since around May of last year, until I bought it in October. Its clear that its been well cared for, without any bodges or stupid modifications to be found at all, excluding the painted wheel trims and radio.
      MOT history looks great, too. Its generally rust free but apparently did get a patch underneath a few years ago, which still looks solid. The bodywork looks great, with no damage or corrosion visible anywhere. There is however a giffer scrape on one of the corners of the rear bumper, and unfortunately, an H from the Mitsubishi lettering is missing. I've therefore deducted 500 quid of the actual market value from the asking price.
      Mechanically it is very solid, too. The front tires show their age and the idle isn't where it should be (members of the Autoshite team have concluded after some collaborative fiddling that it might need a new coolant temp sensor, idle control motor (the one that opens the throttlebody) or something else. Fortunately everything is cheap and all components extremely easy to access so that should hopefully be a quick fix.
      All of this is getting way too long so just have some pictures.





      I might have to add that this happened on the Autobahn. Probably the fastest it ever went in its life.





      And look how practical it is to boot!

      I've set the ticket price to 7 quid which should be fair. I've got a strangely high number of people showing interest in this car so I'll just give everyone the chance to acquire it right here. 
      Lets go!

      This Citroen Visa was purchased at the weekend by five members of the forum, and is now up for a roffle.
      £10 a ticket
      £18 for two
      £27 for three
      Car will be roffled on the bonus ball as normal. The current owner of the car is Wuvvum, who doesn't have an financial interest in it. No profit will be made, and surplus over the initial investment* (£500) will be passed on to the roffle winner to help with collection costs. Part owners may also buy tickets in the draw. The car has an MOT until 15th September.
      More info here in the collection thread:

      Two other notes:
      - Roffle date will not be set until Wuv has the V5 back in his name
      - Car currently has a water leak which Wuv will be fixing before the new owner can collect.
      Off you go!
