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.

      Didn't really want to be selling this without seeing it through fully, but as I've now 3 cars on my own fleet out of 4 needing attention, I feel I must make room and time to get on with those.
      Bought originally as a non-runner, I had it towed home, pulled the wiring apart and buzzed the loom, and taped it back up. I have been using it without fault for around 200 miles, save for some water getting in the abs unit plug. (I have treated it with elec. Cleaner and Wd40, it occasionally misbehaves in wet weather still)
      It now has a comprehensive service history, it has had a refurbished rear axle, alternator and a new clutch within the last few years, and the cambelt done in 2014 at 73k. 
      Currently the mileage is 114k and the mot is due June 2020, in my opinion the sills may require attention as they are a bit tatty, for the time being I have flatted them back and covered them in stone chip paint. The body is generally good, save for giffer touch ups all over in the wrong shade of green.
      It has remote central locking, both keys and does generally drive really well, HOWEVER, the EGR valve seems to be stuck as when vacuum tested, it holds but does not sound to be moving. This manifests itself as a slight hunting between 1800-2000rpm.
      EDIT- EGR NOW REPLACED, NOT MADE ANY DIFFERENCE.
      I will give it a minor service before collection, but the price is a firm £650, which reflects the work it has had in the past, but also the fact it needs a little more fettlement.

      Don't think I need any more than those smiles to sell it.

      Hallo chaps. Too much tat lying and I have a funeral to pay for...
      Mk2 Mondeo 2.0i Zetec, 44k miles, on ST170 alloys plus comes with a set of original spec 5-spoke alloys on duff tyres. MOT til 27/5/2020, some history and a recent battery.
      There are a few marks (pictured), the rear arches aren't too far gone and it has had welding done on the sills.
      The front windows open fine but need a little help closing, they come out the runners on the way up. C/L and heated screen work fine, as does the electric drivers seat adjustment. The clutch bites cleanly and the car pulls well through all the gears.
      It has been sitting a month or so due to the diesel Proton's arrival and I could really do with the cash (unless someone has a carb-fed Proton saloon kicking about in which case I'll sell my arse instead).
      Advertised elsewhere for £525, £400 on here with shiters discocunt applied.
      Car is in Paisley, Scotland, four minutes walk from Paisley Canal station.
