1998 SUBARU IMPREZA NON-TURBO AWD MANUAL ESTATE WITH ROOF BARS AND MASSIVE FOGLIGHTS FOR DOOM SCENARIOS

Bought this off Bramz last month, done a few hundred miles in it.  Perfectly reliable, school run kaos etc

But had some sudden and big household bills loom, so having a big sell-off

MOT is only to end of this month though. But everything works - all windows, no dash warnings; it's been a handy and hunky dory motor car.  Interior tidy.  Exterior pretty clean, bar the odd knock and scuff and arch bubble.  It's not a shed by any means.

History file though up to a point, recent bills for service items, but cambelt roulette.  132k.  Tyres are about 18 months old, but they are budget ditchfinders.  I intended to keep it, wanted this exact spec for years, but will have to let it go after all.

It will need that dicky front caliper replacing as the stickiness comes back after a few days after freeing it off.  Discs look to have little time left on them too.  Bonus is being the non-Turbo it has drums on the rear.  Synchromesh scratchy when cold, clutch feels a bit crunchy action but plenty of meat there

Bonuses are: it's green, it's the estate, excellent heater, it's AWD for snowzombievirus kaos, got insurance cover it on classic multicar policy (Hagerty) as now it's old enough 1998

I just need to get my money back.  It owes me 400 notes.  Can go today

Yes, the number plate is now fixed properly

I'm keeping the Alfa 156 Wagon for now

I'd like one of these, but I would not be able to help feeling like a proper knucklehead driving round in it. Is that still a thing or are these past that stage now?

Well past the stage.  It just looks like an mildly-warm Avensis, parked out there.  'Sport' is the Grandad version after all.

Not once in all these weeks have I had some knobber try and play the traffic light grand prix tease.  So no, well out of fashion, well off the radar.

Anyhow, Footman James didn't want to know due to age... but broker Hagerty are underwritten by Hiscox and their computer said yes.  I did have to speak with the broker though, but no fuss otherwise and sits on multicar classic policy alongside an early Alfa 33 and a Leyland Princess.

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.

      Ok I'm going to see if we've enough interest in the Autoshite Dealership stickers to run off another batch.
       
      I will need to pre-sell a minimum of 120 before I will place another order, and I have contacted the company that made them to recheck the run price.
       
      I am also considering a new design with the url in it, but done so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb (and I corrected the boobies for this run!):

      Alright then shite fans, time for me to clear some space in my parents' loft and get shot of my carefully-assembled model collection from a quarter of a century ago. These have all been "cherished" in the sense that 12 year-old me would take them out the boxes, display them, occasionally dismantle/reassemble them, take the racing stickers off some of them, respray a few of them, add number plates to them, but leave most of them alone and return them to the boxes.
       
      I'm not mad keen on simpy lobbing all of these on Ebay therefore am open to offers on any of the following. See something you like, speak up! As a guide, the going rate for the BBurago 1-24 scale that make up most of the collection seems to be in the region of a tenner each, the 1-18 scale a bit more, the 1-43 a bit less. Bulk discount will be available! Postage is from Jersey so not the same rates as Royal Mail, I need to check out the approx cost as a small parcel seems to be considerably more.
       
      A small portion of the 1-24 stuff first. Some of these are photos cribbed from the Internet on account of not having dug everything out yet. Will probably retrieve the rest at the weekend.

      Citroen 2CV

      Beetle convertible
      Beetle has two bits of interchangeable plastic representing the soft top in lowered and raised positions - nice touch. Mine is in a red box same as the 2CV however.
      EDIT May 2019 Beetle and 2CV sold

      Fiesta XR2i

      Granada Scorpio
      My Scorpio has different wheels to the above, otherwise identical. 3/10/17 SCORPIO SOLD

      That'll do for now. 1-18 stuff up next.

      After a fun* 30 mins phonecall to insure the latest purchase, I thought I'd cheer myself up by starting a collection thread a wee bitty early!
       
      First clue.
       
      I ain't had one of these before..
