100% agree mate. While my own tastes in shite has changed over the years, I’ve always been slightly outside of the vanilla choices. 

My daily at the minute is a one series and I can’t begin to tell you how much I hate it but it was only €400 and just needed an alternator so it’s fine as a daily shitter but I can’t wait to start using something closer to my shite tastes. 

Carry on!

Why give two brass fucks for what anyone else thinks of how you spend YOUR money on YOUR cars?

Keep on doing what you do, there's plenty who want to read about it.

Here's my attitude to modifications.in order of importance. 

Does it add reliability and economy?

Does it add better handling and better brakes.

Does it add to the comfort.

Does it make the car faster, or quicker accelerating.

Does it look better (subjective)

Buy what you want.. 

I took a gamble and bought my dream barge at 17, life is too short and the men in my family seldom get past 40 so i wanted something to enjoy early on.. 

 

It has cost me everything, but I still love it... ;) :)

 

Can't wait to see what you pick up.. :)

Agreed. Do what the fuck you want and sod what anyone thinks. I stopped giving a fuck about 5 years ago and I've never been happier. Fuck the Jonses' and the rat race to the bottom.

Clue number 2.

When I said i hadn't owned one before, I meant this particular type/variation/shape etc. But many parts will be familiar. (e.g an Escort when you've owned an Orion)

The plot thickens...

My guess is a Lada Niva.

Funnily enough, very few of my cars have met their end by my hand, most have gone on to live happy lives or have ended up in the hands of idiots who destroy them. 

The Chevrolet Celebrity ended up being banger raced, but that was a hateful heap anyway. 

Even the Rover 218 Apocalypse car is still around, albeit off the road. 😂

If there ever any doubt as to @TheDoctor's autoshite hero status, I suggest that list should put some wingebags in their boxes.

Hero?  Minor deity at least!  And that’s just for the wheels on that 929....

Another clue, being as the big reveal is tomorrow at around 1pm.

People will usually ask 'Does it have a ***** **** ****? Answer is no. I think. 

Cosworth engine in?

Sierra with smokey 1.8 cvh, taped up nearside rear lense and some ironic fluffy dice hanging from the recently re-glued rear view mirror?

The blue ones? 

Wellers from a Rickman Ranger, redrilled and painted in Lada Adriatic blue with a silver lip.

Hundreds* of years ago a friend of mine briefly had a 929 as his first company car. Someone senior had left the firm (and the 929) and the 1.3 Escort they’d ordered for him didn’t show up on time. He coped manfully with the disappointment.
