this thread doesn't make much sense

Away man, he has used real words and everything;)

Essentially, the money he would have put into travel can now be spent on a car. Two likely victims have been identified. (He only ever talks about 5 things - travel, food,drink cars and bikes:)

Hairnet - do you have links or do we need to hunt?

Loads of old Vauxhall's that are very reasonably priced if you move the decimal point a bit.

so gonna be visiting land of squiggly again and cant rent a car - they dont take debit cards and didnt want to give them cash deposit

so looking at stuff there was the corolla (was looking at the 70s ones) but too far away or knackered - did see a ke16 1967 which made me ❤️ but wary of using that with no shakedown might result in a ruined holiday

had been looking at opel (!) astras - saw a nice saloon but it sold the day i saw it

peugeot 505 was on the list but wasnt cheap and would need ££ before use

405 considered the two i looked at one was nice but too far away (its not like getting a train from leeds to london :D )

the other was close but fucked

so its come down to these two after looking at coronas (yeah really) but they are what we call carinas here zzzzzz unless its an early 80s one but i found one and then couldnt find the link again - i was upset for a week :(

so as in the first post

what do i do :D

oh i was looking at bikes and scooters  - conan cant help as he cant ride and landing then going looking i wasnt sure how that would pan out - but ive seen BKK traffic and bikes arent allowed on motorways here (?)

This is like finding out the answer is 42!

You have distilled the essence of the man in to 5 things... Although he does a good line in t shirts

so

after looking at lots of coronas and ke70 was looking at 504 pick up but toyota engine and expensive and a lovely on the outside 305 but its been sat two years

lW9KGCl.jpg - again same as the ke16 didnt wanna chance it

then B310 and B11 sunnys

AdYCHJG.jpg (mega cheap - almost had the money in a packet from last time) but was too far away (chiang mai is 10 hour drive lol)

was seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on an 88ish accord

800px-Honda_Accord_rear_20080121.jpg

but it was rusty in weird places (fine for thai mot scarily so swerve)

then looked at nissan sentra

1992_nissan_sentra_4_dr_gxe_sedan-pic-46

but again sold before i could get it looked at cos it was cheap

so after serving at lots of 70s nissan and mitsubishis - i went looking at galants

found a nice one guy used it as his daily driver but looking at the pics conan found a big problem - for some reason it had a toyota engine in it :D *swerve

found another that was as nice and slightly cheaper but got the big FRO when the guy asked for money first without being asked

ke70 came up on the list cos i like the shape and the ke30 corolla were either again knackered or too much money

but conan said his friend was selling a 4age converted one and i was 85% on it)

untill conan showed me a mazda 626 in ALL TEH BEIGE!!!!!!........................

you know you said it ran shit when warm

see the engine bay pic with the old leads

see the inner two?

thats why - 0.05mm from exhaust no wonder = theyll be fucked

That's exactly what everyone says when they see the pic. 100% great Japanese design.
