Peugeot 305 must be steel, it's being attracted north.. Garbaldy wins!

Recommended Posts

This roffle DOES NOT include two new genuine wings. They would be available to purchase by the winner, or I'll sell them separately.

aka number 44 52 and 59 please :) (although the list seemingly only goes up to number 50?)

Ah the 305 I should have had, resplendent in beige.

The advisories on the MOT for this are great! 

Number plate "looks a bit like it melted" and the engine "has an epic oil leak". Awesome. 

Good luck with the roffle :)

The advisories on the MOT for this are probably an example of why the MOT system is not always the best guarantee of buying a fine safe car 


There's little doubting this car is grim in many ways, but every time I drive it I find myself more in love with it.  It's incredibly charming.

Edited to emphasise: this MOT is straight.  The MOT handbook did not allow for it to be failed on its condition.  That clearly does not mean it's without issue.

Two videos from today.

First start in a month.  It started like this last month too, and that was its first start since September.  And the kids had left the lights on for a day.

This is cruising at 55 on a twisty country road in the rain with the window down.  You can maintain a surprising pace with a bit of clever use of the throttle.

Hell yeah. 20 quids worth please! 

Mate, you remember that 306? That was utterly perfect compared to this.  I'm not sure I can quite bare the idea of you winning this.   Still can have them if you really want though! 😂

      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...

    • By gm
      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!
