51 plate C180 estate - petrol, manual, 107k. Stanky is full of WIN!

This has been dragging with the end tantalisingly in sight, so inspired by the worthy @SRi05 I'll pop it in here and see if anyone who doesn't visit 'Shite For Sale' is interested...

 

Quoting now...

 

After having recently gone through the fun* of selling a car on eBay, I thought I'd try my luck on here. I only bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim, thinking it would be ideal for shooting down to France with the wife and the dog to visit the in-laws, but the wife has taken against it HARD due to the lack of air-con (she's not worried about us - it's the dog!). So it has to go.

Bad bits first, as is AS tradition. The A/C really is gone. No amount of re-gassing will fix this! A few patches of rust here and there - none look bad enough for welding. A bit of rust converter and bondo and job jobbed was my plan. Laquer is starting to peel in a few places. The remote central locking doesn't always unlock the passenger side door (although it does always seem to lock it, which is odd). Tailgate has a decent dent in it. Nothing to do with me, it came free with the car. Tailgate still works fine, though.

Good bits. Maybe it has been too long since I was last in a rear-wheel drive, but it feels to me like it pulls away from the line very nicely. The six-speed box feels nice and precise, and lets you trundle along at 70mph with the engine only doing about two and a half thousand revs (not had it long enough to really measure fuel efficiency). MOT until Feb and taxed to get you home.

Located in Ipswich. I was thinking £9 per ticket, or two for £16, three for £21. Any takers?

 

PRICE DROP !!!!

£8 for one, £14 for two, £19 for three. Buy Buy Buy!!!!

      Well I've been meaning to sign up here in forever, but kept forgetting. Thanks to someone over on another forum I frequent poking me about it recently the subject was forced back into my very brief attention span for long enough to get me to act on the instruction.

      I figure that my little varied fleet might bring you lot some amusement...

      So...we've got:

      1993 Lada Riva 1.5E Estate (now fuel injected, as I reckon the later cars should have been from the factory...).
      1989 Saab 900i Automatic.
      1987 Skoda 120LX 21st Anniversary Special Edition.
      1985 Sinclair C5.
      2009 Peugeot 107 Verve.

      Now getting the photos together has taken me far longer than I'd expected...so you're gonna get a couple of photos of each car for now, and I'll come back with some more information tomorrow when I've got a bit more time...

      Firstly...The Lada. Before anyone asks - in response to the single question I get asked about this car: No, it is not for sale. Took me 13 years and my father's inheritance to find the thing.


      Yes, it's got the usual rusty wings...Hoping that will be resolved in the next couple of months.

       






      Next, a proper old Saab. One of the very last 8 valve cars apparently, and all the better for it. I've driven two 16v autos and they were horrible - the auto box works sooooo much better with the torque curve of the 8 valve engine. Just wish it had an overdrive for motorway cruising...









      Next up a *real* Skoda...back when they put the engine where it belongs, right out the back. In the best possible colour of course...eye-searingly bright orange.







      Seat covers have been added since that photo was taken as it suffers from the usual rotting seat cloth problem that affects virtually all Estelles.

      Then we have possibly the world's scruffiest Sinclair C5...



      Realised when looking for this that I really need to get some more photos of the thing...I use it often enough after all! We have a dog who's half husky, so this is a really good way of getting him some exercise.

      Finally - again, I really need to take more photos of - we have the little Pug 107.



      Included for the sake of variety even if it's a bit mainstream! First (and probably to be the only) new car I've bought, and has been a cracking little motor and has asked for very little in return for putting up with nearly three years of Oxford-Milton Keynes commuter traffic, before finally escaping that fate when my housemate moved to a new job. Now it doesn't do many miles and is my default car for "when I've managed to break everything else."

      I'll fill in some more details tomorrow - I warn you though that I do tend to ramble...
    • By loserone
      I reckon I fancy a change.  This is nice.  Really, quite nice indeed.
       
      But regular readers will know I am growing keener on having a comfortable ride quality these days, and this has 17" wheels on.  Wheels bigger than 15" are suitable only for bicycles.  Hence, here's a roffle.
      WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
      GOOD:
      Black
      Tan leather in good nice
      Dual zone climate control which works
      Heated leather front and rear
      It's the top spec 250BHP HOT one so it's not entirely slow
      Two good keys
      Memory seats
      Stack of history rivalling a CISSP textbook
      MOT until 03/08/2021
      I'm getting 33 MPG from it.
      Everything works.
      BAD:
      Lacquer peel.  The roof and bonnet have been resprayed at some point, and nearly all the lacquer has come off.  I reckon 5 minutes with a jetwash would make it look matt and less noticeable. 
      The exhaust has started blowing recently.  I've not even looked at it, it's fine from the inside but throaty from the outside.
      It will need a small patch on the bottom of the wheel arch on one side, but looks nothing like as bad as the maroon one which was recently for sale on here.
      @davehedgehog31 reckons it sometimes uses a bit of oil.  The owner previous to him had the turbo changed 50k ago (!) in an attempt to resolve this.  However, I've found that generally it's not using oil any more than I might reasonably expect - say, half a pint every 1000 miles?
      The OSF wheelbearing drones at 50-55MPH.  I don't do 50-55MPH anywhere, I'm either doing 30 or 80, so this hasn't affected me.  However, there's a new wheelbearing for it in the boot.  I'm THAT lazy.

      Given the SMOLL HOLES in the exhaust and wheelarch, I'm sure it's not worth as much as the marvellous looking one for sale on here elsewhere with the lower spec and smaller engine and wrong gearbag.  So I reckon £12 a ticket, or three for £30.  Sound alright?

      Not actually a roffle, sorry.  What have been our best roffles? I quite liked winning a Lexus LS400..

      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.
