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.

I have been selfishly hoping this beauty would go to roffle. I'll take one random now and I may be back for more once I've checked my pockets, searched down the back of the sofa, and tipped the neighbourhood kids upside down and shaken them.

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.

      I’ve been meaning to start a thread about my cars since I started posting on here, but never quite got round to it. Until now.  Although a number have appeared in odd posts across other threads I’ll try to collate updates, comings and goings in here from now on.  Even if no-one else is interested it will serve as a record of what I’ve been wasting my time on.
       
      My cars, with one exception, fall into two camps.  There are five BL/Rover products, all of which come March I will have owned for 10 years or more.  In order of acquisition:
       
      1964 Austin 1100.  Bought in 2005 for £950, which remains the most I’ve spent on a car!  Fitted with MG1100 engine and uprated cam,  Continuously MOT’d and in light use during my ownership.
       

       
      1972 Austin 1800 automatic, bought in 2006.  A Bristol car all its life (I lived there from 96-09), it was originally Wild Moss but resprayed (I believe by the original dealer) Mallard green, as it was seriously old stock at the time.  Had hand controls from new as the first owner was paralysed, it retains all the under-bonnet gubbins for this, with the battery moved to the boot.  Off road since 2010 awaiting an engine rebuild.
       

       
      1973 Austin 1100 2 door deluxe (just like SiC’s).  Rescued in 2006 from long term storage in a hanger at Bristol airport.  Limeflower with matching interior.  My everyday car from 2007 to 2010, and at various times since.  Needs bodywork, and the suspension celebrated obtaining its last MOT in 2017 by popping a pipe over the rear subframe a day later!
       

       
      1990 Maestro diesel van.  Ex South Western Electricity Board (hence the orange colour).  Bought in 2009 to help with move from Bristol to Norfolk, it was my main transport for most of the time from 2010-16, when it finally produced a MOT failure list which needed proper attention.  New sills, wheelarches and floor sections later it’s now solid underneath, and waiting for similar attention on top.  MOTd but rarely used.
       

       
      1975 Austin Allegro 1300 estate (series 1).  Bought in March 2009 from its sole previous owner and used until the MOT ran out that August.  Slumbered until 2015 when much bodywork was done and has been back on the road since early 2016, averaging  a couple of thousand miles per year.
       

       
      Now for the past few years I’ve rotated my everyday car fairly frequently (by which I mean every couple of months or so); however last April I stumbled across my 1996 Punto 55SX.  It’s got under my skin and is going nowhere, although it might have the odd month off whilst I try something else
       

       
      So that’s my basic fleet, but since deciding that 20 years working in the defence industry, with 4 hours per day commuting for the last seven of those was quite enough I’ve bought and sold the odd car to make a bit of money.  My criteria are that they must be something which interests me, or cheap and local!  Some have been seen or even sold on here (V70 T5 last year for example) but at the end of 2018 my sales stock was precisely zero.  Something had to be done.  Last Wednesday this arrived (as seen in News24 thread):
       

       
      1997 Punto 60S.  Needs a wheel cylinder for MOT but really needs the clutch release bearing replacing (and possibly the operating arm) before it’s sellable.  A friend has offered to help with this as I’ve never split an end-on gearbox before (I refer you to my collection of gearbox in sump cars above, which I am quite happy to take apart).
       
      Then on Friday this appeared:
       

       
      Vovlo 850 2.5 20v automatic in top of the range CD spec.  Cheap as the electric front seat was supposed not to work (the movement part, not the heater).  As the battery was flat on arrival I charged that before playing with it, and the seat works perfectly! There was a problem as someone's had the switch pack off before, so maybe disconnecting the battery resets the memory box through which it all works.  I'm sure one of our more learned Volvo brethren will be along shortly with an explanation.   Once I’d cleaned copious amounts of seagull poo off it I found a very nice car with an incredibly sweet sounding engine.  MOTd to November, I’d planned to have a bit of fun with this but a family member’s phase 2 V70 died spectacularly last week so she will be taking ownership next Monday
       
      And to bring us up to date this morning I brought this home:
       

       
      Very local and very cheap, owned by a 95 year old lady who gave up driving last year.  It’s a 1.2 SXi semi-auto thing; I can’t see it needing much for a MOT which will occur the week after next.  Just need to find a battery that will fit in the stupid under-scuttle location as I’m not buying a new one before the MOT result is known!
       
      Have a final pic of the three shades of blue together
       

       
      Apologies for such a lengthy post; I will try to update as cars come, go or are put up for sale, and if I get time I’ll add photos of some of the many BL vehicles I’ve owned (although being a luddite means I don’t have digital photos of the majority).

      I’m not sure if there’d be much interest in a roffle for a topless mills o’matic swede at this time of year but before I stick it down at the barn for winter, I thought I’d mention it on here...
      Its a 2006 9-3 1.8t with just under 90k miles and a good service history. It has been Mrs NMs summer chariot of choice but has now been stood down by a Berlingo diesel...the backup plan is to park it up over winter before prepping it up for sale in the spring where it would get advertised for its market value but due to the impending arrival of another toy, if someone on here wants to win it for the frankly ludicrous sum of £12.00, then step right up!!
      Good bits...
      All electrics, roof etc in good order, decent tires all round, plenty of MOT, working air con, polishes up nicely, will come with new discs and pads on the front.
      Not so good bits...
      Silly tax bracket so £48 a month to tax, occasional lambda fault which pops on EML....will reset and stay off for a month or two, slight bit of pogweasleing on the n/s front bumper where it’s had a smart repair in the past.
      Only got a few pictures to hand at the minute but if there’s any interest, I’ll stick some more up in the next day or so.
      Roffle tickets as it is are £12 each or two for £20 and the car is located near Burnley, Lancashire.
      Form an orderly queue.... 🙂

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good.
