I’ll have a random for my old Cav owning times sake.

It’s a long time since I felt the tactile knurled wheel that controls a whole four fan speeds.

Been a long time since i had to replace one of the fuckers as well! If theres a ticket left by friday im having it!

Yes, I've changed that one and it's no picnic is it! Pretty sure I've brought another switch complete with the whole assembly used as a spare somewhere too. The fan resistor is usually the more common fail thankfully as it's easier to change.

A cracking looking cavalier. If I didn’t already have one and I wasn't overstocked with cars here I think I would. Whoever wins it will get a good car. 

Thank's, if I could afford to keep two cars I honestly wouldn't sell it myself. Hopefully it goes to a good home on AS and maybe I can even buy it back at some point?

Which part of the west kids are you residing too? Cheers

Hi bub will add your roffle numbers along with Ohdearme and Matty later. 

I'm in Aldridge, closer to the Lichfield A5 side of it mate.  Or could possible see it etc at my Dads house in Measham, DE12 if that easier? I've renewed the insurance on Monday for now too as our Scudo van has suffered a fail. So I'm still using the Cav at the minute till it hopefully sorted.

I'll take a look at your PM shortly too, Cheers.

Im living on me nerves here. Is it sold, is the raffle still on? People need to know!!

Sorry people been distracted by my Van having a ftp! 

The Roffle / Sale is still active, I've just not pushed it as;

( 1) I've insured the Cav again for now to potter around in.

(2) Van is broken as above so this is my only wheels at the moment.

(3) I still love this car and I questioning my sanity in selling it! 

It clicked over to 205,000 yesterday too. So treated it to a wash and gave it a quick once over with some wax and blacked up the plastic trim.

Have you still got this @Burnside? Might have someone buying my P100 this week, if they do, I'll definitely be interested in your cavalier...

Hi lamgroot, yes I still have the Cavalier available but hadn't pushed it's sale with the Van playing up etc as above. But I've just brought another car, so I had been thinking of bumping this thread back up so good timing ! 

Just drop me a message or pm when your ready. 

Cheers.

Sorry to say the "mate of a mate" never turned up and has disappeared off the radar, so I haven't sold my pickup.

No problem lamgroot, and appreciate the quick reply back.

I'm sure your have no trouble selling it, as finding a decent 2wd pickup of any kind is no easy task. Which my Dad found out a few years back when he tried to buy one. Ended up with a Ford Connect Van instead.

I’ll have a random anyway, just in case I figure out what’s going on.

Numbers 52 and 53 please. 

The Cavalier still For Sale at £425. So if everyone still up for restarting a Roffle then it's on! 

Also if the previous people who have asked for a Roffle number still want there's just message up on here. 

I'll get on the laptop tonight and draw up the list. Cheers all.

I genuinely cannot understand why this hasn’t sold. It’s a working tidy car with a nearly full test for the price of a weekend in a ghastly caravan in Skegness. 

Thank's I guess me not pushing it with the Van fiasco hasn't helped in fairness, but part of me glad though as I still enjoy having it around. 

It even came to the rescue (again) after my Brothers Ford Focus broke down last weekend. Towing him home after a thankfully minor ftp as it turned out.

A little later than planned tonight, but I've added a updated roffle list below. Which for now includes everyone who previously asked for a roffle ticket.

If anyone want's to drop out, I'll amend the list so people can see if any numbers become available again as we go.

Though the Cavalier is still available for a straight Sale at £425.

I'll refit the original grill and amber side indicators prior to collection too.

No problem aldo135, I'll add you to the Roffle list!

Apologies, I'd forgotten about this and circumstances have changed somewhat.

Not got any spare time for additional cars, so going to have to withdraw from roffle.

Apologies again

Thank's for letting us know and no need to apologize. Hope your ok though.

Have had some interest by a AS member last week, but for the meantime the Roffle will still contuine unless a outright Sale is agreed before it's sold out.

An to get the Roffle going again, Tickets are now only £7.50.

      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.
