Where did my number 58 disappear to?

Apologies, I'm not sure either other than a clear mistake on my part.

Amended the existing list and sorry to fatharris for moving one of his ramdom's to correct it. Hope that's ok with both parties.

SURELY one of the best cars made in the past 40 years or whatever!

pistonheads/top gear fans all will agree with me

 

ANY job on these is DIY, they’re so easy to work on and you can drive to work and back without oil or coolant (source my dad, cavalier 1.6GLS, 2006)

 Back when I was a kid. A friend at School Dad had the misfortune to roll his mk3 Cavalier 2.0 GL Auto on his way to work, due to avoiding a Dog. Sadly it was totalled but it still managed to drive him the remaining 3 miles to work! Bloody shame as it was a nice car but proved how tough they are.

I put a mk3 2.0 SEH 8V in a mk2 Cav CalibrE but it threw a rod on the Runcorn Bridge. I am led to believe that 1992 was not a good year for big end bolt quality.  Apparently there was a recall??? Mine must have missed it.

Must admit I've never heard of that myself about the 2.0 8v failures, has anyone else heard of it? 

MK2 Cav Calibre though, NICE!  They were a rare motor even when new. I never saw a real one till about 10 years ago. Prior to that I can remember seeing a couple of Hatches with I assume a replica kit fitted.

Right last push on the Cav Roffle. The Road Tax is due next week and I can't really justify paying out for another 6 months Tax at present.

So Roffle tickets are now only £7 each. If it's not sold out by this weekend though. I may have to consider either selling the Cav elsewhere, or prehaps keeping on to it a while longer instead. Which means the Fiat Stilo needs shifting asap.

      Six-Cylinder Entertains – Virtual Roffle of my Maserati BiTurbo
      As I can’t sing or dance I had to think up an alternative entertainment. I have noticed how much people enjoy a Roffle and obviously collection is difficult at the moment so I am holding a Roffle for one of my cars, the difference is it is virtual and no collection needed!
       
      You can dream for a short while of having a Maserati BiTurbo. I value the car at £5,000 so tickets are £84.00, usual format after all numbers are “sold” the bonus number of the next National Lottery draw is the winner
       
      To make it clear you will not get my Maserati at the end of it, neither will you have to pay £84 for a ticket.
      I do have a little treat for the winner as I have a 1:43 scale model of a Biturbo saloon to send them as a gift. If you are the winner and want to be taken out in the real one or maybe even have a short drive after lockdown I will be pleased to accommodate you.
       
      Up for Virtual Roffle is my :
      1987 Maserati 425 biturbo saloon, 2.5 carburettor twin turbo V6 190 bhp and feels more because of a great wedge of torque in the mid range. 5 speed gearbox with dogleg 1st.
      Owned for 7 years.
      MOT 13th November 2020, but I believe it will benefit from having 6 months added to mean it will not need a fresh MOT until May 2021.
      Excellent running condition. Just 60, 000 miles, original leather book pack with service history to 48,000 miles then lots of invoices. Cambelt 2 years ago, brake callipers, recent pair of new tyres. Several rubber fuel lines replaced including the dangerous one that lives in the turbo pressure box.
      The Bodywork is always a bugbear with these and we have chased rust a couple of time, windscreen surround, front wings and boot floor. Now a very sound and tidy car if not prize winning.
      Of course there are some negatives:
      Radio/cassette is not working
      Wheels need refurbishing
      Some wear to the interior
      Idle a little high
      Electric boot release can be a bit problematical
      Bonnet 2nd catch release needs a clip.

      Remember you only win a 1:43 model, but there is nothing to pay to enter.
       
      No I don’t want to sell the BiTurbo this is just for fun.
    • By 17-Coffees
      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.
      12 months MOT

      VID-20200215-WA0072.mp4
    • 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!
