Ah, the top of our hill.

grandma used to have to walk through the snowdrifts from Tow Law to Crook as she worked in the bank and held the keys - if she didn't go in, the bank didn't open.

Fantastic logic being applied there :)

I'll have three randooms if it helps you out?

 In a similar arrangement to Jim it would have to be on the understanding that if I'm *lucky* enough to win, the car will instantly be dispatched to the good people at CarTakeBack I'm afraid.

As much as I fancy an Almera, I'm going to be sensible and not buy any tickets because a) its a mk2 b) resale silver and c) I have absolutely no use for it. I'm also miles away down south and can't be arsed to make the journey.

I know some will disagree, but I don't like the idea of people buying roffle tickets with the express purpose of scrapping the car and pocketing the proceeds. Aren't we all about keeping old cars going? This ones relatively presentable, Motd and appears to have loads of life left in it.

The way I see it, if you don't really want the car just don't buy any tickets and save them for people who do want it.

I feel a flaming incoming, but IDGAF.

 

Good luck with the roffle :)

I would like to make a statement of intent here. If I win this I will be lovingly changing the engine for a trusty weber carbed GA16 lump. I will then kick all of the windows out and it will get ragged around Barford Raceway. If Mr gm has a problem with this he can cancel my tickets. If not I will have another 3

the problem I have here is that it's been advertised for weeks and no one seems to want to buy it - I would have thought anything running and driving with 6 months mot would have been a prospect for someone but found myself looking at the  cartakeback option too (they offered £150ish)

this way, the car has a chance of living on with one of us and we get to have a bit of fun on the way. I hope the winner gets to enjoy the thrill* of a collection mission and takes it home to enjoy but whatever happens, I'll not be upset.

the only issue I have is that I'd like to come and watch, as would my 12 year old nephew who would find it hilarious to see granny's old car being used for such craziness :)

three more tickets to be issued forthwith

If I win it I'll be taking it to Shitefest, which is 50 miles nearer to me than the car currently is. The last time I was in Chester le Street I was in my 1969 Maxi back in 1996 when the A30/A35 Owners Club held their national rally at Beamish.

Paid.

      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

      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 ?

      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!
