Amazing reverse collection thread

Recommended Posts

Here’s how this thread is going to work. Attached pic is what I have sold. You don’t have to guess what the vehicle is, you have to guess which two well known Shiters are coming to pick it up, what pile of crap they’re coming in and where the mugs they are coming from. They’re arriving at 2pm on Saturday. Go!

I have hints to drop including detailed personal descriptions and I’m funny so this thread will be funny.

Does it involve the artist formally known as Junkman ?

Doesn’t he already have something old, French and estate shaped?

I wish!

Alas, I am resigned to nursing along a needlessly complicated small car that fails to do any task with the charm that Ami has:(


Thanks fuck for my GSA

eddys bought a REAL car :P


You would be giving me a lift if so!  Anyway I not only have one real car but also a Citroen.  Oh and there's also the small matter of not having anything like enough money for an Ami....

It's Barrett and Gary Cox and they will be arriving in an almost identical Ami, or a 1927 Slowmobile from Barrett's extensive collection.

I mean, they’re the obvious answer aren’t they? Barrett and irresistible obscure French heaps are a thing. Is it them?

It's not Strangeangel is it? He said he and djimbob were off to get something recently.

Interesting. Is it them? Got a personal description to see if it matches mine?

First actual hint: a personal description. "I dunno, we're just your standard issue white male middle aged shite fanciers"

Well I fit that description, so I'm going to guess that they're both skinny, about 40 years old and balding. Like me.

They might not look like this.

I think that describes about half of the AS membership.
Is it Bucketeer plus someone else..?

Bucketeer is at least 60...

I don't think I'm involved. Although after yesterday's unsuccessful collection of a rocket car with Skattrd he has bundles of cash burning a hole in his purse, so maybe he's bought this and hasn't told me to pick him up yet. Also we were admiring BFGs Ami yesterday. It's all starting to fit.

Is it me and Skattrd?


Also Will I may feel 60 but I look 16.

      Our collection story begins 21 years ago, the lovely Mrs Spart had just passed her test at the tender age of 17 and bought her first car, like most first cars it left a lasting impression. Unfortunately, as is often the way, life and finances took over and it had to go.
      Fast forward to a couple of months ago and while idly browsing one evening Mrs Spart entered the reg number of the car in question. Unbelievably, not only is it still on the road but it's for sale! 
      After a bit of a false start from myself, making contact with the seller, then him inexplicably not answering calls, texts or emails, Mrs Spart takes matters into her own hands. The seller is much more forthcoming and we make a date to view and potentially collect. That date is tomorrow!
      I've hired a flatbed trailer from a local company in Worksop and we're currently bedded down for the night in Alnwick, en-route to the land of the SVM, specifically, Perth. 
      For those in the mood for a guessing game I'll not reveal the model of car until tomorrow but suffice to say, it shares one particular part, at least very closely in design, with my LDV Convoy camper tow vehicle.
      Here we are just leaving Halfords in Worksop, as I forgot to take a rear plate to the trailer hire place. The man in Halfords was very helpful, bearing in mind the regulations regarding having a plate made. I was able to locate my insurance details on my phone and he used that info and my driving licence to whip up a rear plate.
      I note that according to davidfowler2000 that this collection is classed as 'close', it'll total 600+miles, so it's going to be enough for one weekend!

      It is car shopping eve.
      I've done the important research, namely look at past live collection capers.
      And found a suitable car (here's hoping I do/don't win the Gallant steed roffle)
      I have a lift in a shittier car than one to be viewed sorted, a rendezvous with the seller (not autoshite member I don't think)
      Buy criteria: If it's not a total shitbox and if I think it will get me to where I need to be for the next week or so while my BMW is being fettled with then it will be a buy.
      Live collection caper criteria as laid out by @Jim Bell on a previous collection caper:
      "Collection thread tick list.
      Breakfast pic
      Car pic
      Petrol station pic
      Woolard pic
      (And for bonus points)
      Pic of a dog
      A pic of a car worse than the one you're collecting. "
      I also believe a poo count is normally required. Does that requirement also include photo of results?
      I will be travelling with a dog more than likely in a shit car. Not sure what a woolard is to take a pic though.
      This thread will have the added live excitement that if when I get there and the guy is trying to sell me a nail I have to reject it and start again!
      This is my first buy since being on this forum so if I go off piste feel free to shit-post. Anyway it's nearly 11 at night car-shopping-eve so I am going to get some shut-eye (as much as one can with a 10-month-old who hates sleeping) so if my cunning plan to sleep is interloped upon by said plentyn (thats wain in Scotts, bairn in North Eastern and child-faced daemon in Englandshire-ish) I'll here reading posts no doubt. See you all in a minute then.

      Taxi to the station (no buses).
      Now on the train to London, on which I have a carriage all to mysellf

      Heading south on an empty stomach because honestly I just forgot to eat again. Making use of the stupid economic power of the Xantia and the extra hands of Father Tickman.
      Off we go...

      @TheMokritehas not eaten. I have had one Pringle. He may have bought shite. Heading South... About 2 minutes in car.
      May have to jump it of Fleur but remains to be seen...
