More stupidity - a collection

Recommended Posts

I told myself I don't need any more cars, I've got enough and I'll get some fixed and have loads to choose from.
Then you end up working too many hours, one cars breaks the week after getting it through an MOT, then another breaks and you're back to one working/legal car. Instead of getting them fixed you end up browsing ebay and bidding on yet another car.

Today in pictures:

The flight plus hotel only cost slightly more than the train would have and it meant I can collect the car in the morning instead of late afternoon.
This also means I can hopefully* get home tomorrow without driving many hours in to the night.

Far too sensible and clever. You'll be telling us you have break down cover next.

@ruffgeezer if you/Pete want some amg alloys the ones currently on this car should be available cheapish. 

Yep, let me know when the time is right!

Pete's E300 is a 6cyl turbo diesel auto, it has had a lot spent on new brake pipes and welding for its latest mot, full black moo and dark green paintwork. Running AMG monoblock 17"s

Penrith 300 miles or so done, car running gr9, a few niggles but nothing major, fingers crossed.

I had a pit stop earlier around Central Scotland to say hello to 320touring, brother and fatha touring.

Now its KFC in Penrith then time to cross the country to the east coast and A1.

      In nine hours (ish) I am collecting a new car. Some of you know what it is. Others don't.
      What is important at this time is that I am awake, and that means that poo count equals... one.

      As I am determined to reduce* my fleet, and it is over a week since my last collection, I am off again tomorrow. This should* mean there is only one outstanding collection that I hope to complete before the end of the year. Does give me an excuse not to do the end of year stats though...
      I have just loaded the straps into the Disco, hooked on the trailer and tested the lights ready for the off. Trailer required as despite being MOTed and running, it has a fault that prevents driving. It is likely to be dark when I leave, have a photo as it was getting dark tonight.

      As for the collectee, I have owned one many years ago, but at the opposite end of the trim/performance level, though did not drive it much. The last one I swapped for a 1987 V12 XJS, the latest one was purchased for scrap money.....

      Had this little honey delivered today from the Autoshite legend that is RobT who saved it from the crusher. 

      Has a few issues - biggest of all is rough running / misfire at idle. Top suspect is the inlet manifold gasket which was kindly supplied. 
      Needs a proper service since the previous giffer owner seems to have been ripped off by his local garage - the air filter is black as fuck and the spark plugs fitted are probably not the correct ones. 
      OSF sidelight is inop - broken wire. Upon investigating I found some top class wiring repairs to the lighting harness:

      Yes, twisted together wires covered in masking tape. Lovely. 
      All in all it’s very clean and tidy though - 33k on the clock!

      An international kolleckshun in reverse, the car is located in the UK but I am not! My friends arrived from the Bahamas to stay in France for a couple of months so the first thing they did was to ask me to source transport. The only sensible* thing to do was to buy shite from here, so as I am heading home today, they are coming along to kollect. They will probably spend a week or so in the UK before returning to France.
      For added bonus shite points, the transport is of course the bargainous AS Saab of many warning lamps! Will update when I can, which may not be often!
