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.

      So a couple of weeks ago I was up at Mathewsons for the auction. I’d bid on a couple of things that didn’t meet reserve. Getting towards the end and this came through. Still didn’t meet reserve but got the call a couple of days later to say my bid had been accepted. 
      Anyway, we have a caravan at Primrose Valley so had arranged collection for today. First stint is just from Thornton-le-Dale to Filey which is about 18miles. Then tomorrow will be Filey to Leicester either via Humber bridge and Lincoln or Driffield then M18 and M1. Choice of route will depend on how it behaves today and how confident I am that it will be happy on the motorway. 
      Car collected now and refreshments of Tea and Scones consumed, we are off for petrol with Mrs Foxache following in the modern.

      Hi all, i'm after some advice. I know there are at least a couple of us on here that reside over the channel and that the general wisdom level for collectioneering is pretty damn impressive. So what would your advice be in my situation?
      How do I go about getting a hydraulic Citroen in unknown condition (only that it is certainly not roadworthy atm) from France, near the swiss border in Héricort to me in Somerset? I REALLY REALLY WANT IT, and am quite happy to pay. In an ideal world i'd just hire/purchase a trailer and rock on into France - but I cannot drive a trailer on my licence (to young...). I've used shiply before but i've been fucked around once and had success once. Are there alternatives? 
      I need to call the seller, but won't be able to until after work this evening - the ad says no emails (fucking irritating)
