I don't think anything will ever top the Lada Samara 'Wheel of misfortune' ROFFLE live at Shitefest 2016.

This is one I missed out on, but was exactly what I was thinking of

Not actually a roffle, sorry.  What have been our best roffles? I quite liked winning a Lexus LS400..

But dome won that. Well, he won it when I roffled it for £3 per ticket!

Or was there another LS400 roffled through AS too?

 

The 2016 ShiteFest wheel of misfortune was amazingly done, though. Another vote for that from me.

A perfect mix of a fab prize, magnificent danger and alcohol!

I liked winning the Jag back after I'd sold it :D

MFV?

That's had quite a few owners and a lot of miles covered in collections alone. It's gone back and forth from Scotland to South of England at least four times!

Yeah that one, I don't know why I sold it and still miss it but didn't want it back when I won it, go figure as they say..

I believe @Eddie Honda owns it now. 

It was a decent car but made me realise that Jags just aren't me. At least at my current age.

I quite liked the idea behind the Cannock one, I paid a few quid to someone & failed to win an unknown car.

I didn't even go to Cannock that weekend & can't remember what sort of car they bought & raffled.

I'm obviously biased so my vote is the visa. 850miles in a day but it was special because it was a community save.

Also, what is the tale of the Lada Samara. I'm intrigued?

I forgot about the Visa! A bit crazy being as it was my idea at the start! What became of it?

The clutch cooked itself at Scotoshite in January and there's some other part of the clutch mechanism which has bent. I've saved some $$$ and am getting her fixed after lockdown. 

She made an excellent show car and still fires up first time/rolls freely.

I think my Xantia win deserves mention for including a family swim on the way back! Top man @SierraMikeHotel picked it up for me and met me at the Hertz drop off outside Heathrow. 
 

The Bini that’s become an AS bike was a good one too, especially as @Tickman bought me the ticket and I didn’t know until it was drawn! Brilliant wee car that’s ready for a new owner again I’m sure?

Surely this is a contender, won at the end of January 2019 from @320touring

1) 3 tickets were £12

2) It was less than 10 miles away from me.

3) Had no MOT but needed only a wheel bearing to pass which was supplied.

4) Having just completed 6 months/6000 miles of trouble free service for Ms_Touring, I knew it was reliable

5) Brutha_Touring subsequently found all the service history, confirming that @Lacquer Peel’s friends mum had spent over £1k on it in the last year having all the brake and fuel pipes replaced.

6) It has gone on to provide a lot of fun for me and my family, including a trip to Arran last year, the roof works.(manual) and doesn't leak (much!). Everyone seems to love it including my postman and neighbours.

7) It's in overall decent nick after just a polish and valet.

The only negative is that it won't become a forum bike because despite some indecision last summer, I'll never part with it now. My wife and I wrote our wills recently and if I predecease her, it's to be parked up in the garage for my son.

The story behind that is one of my favourites.

You buy it for £sillylowprice because owner is literally emigrating the next day.
You pootle about in it.
You take it on a track day and its brakes and electrics get utterly gubbed (or, in fairness, more utterly gubbed than they were before)
You understandably think 'fuck this' and roffle it, selling out in about 5 hours flat.
Dome wins, comes to collect, and fixes* the electrics by booting the dashboard.

Yes, I won the ex @Spottedlaurel ex @JohnK ex @Jim Bell Ls400 ("tales of £13 car") and Mrs L1 spun it into some road furniture.  Subsequently swapped for a mandolin, it's sitting on @scaryoldcortina's drive for his son, who's bought a Mercedes Benz instead.

      It seems to be a fairly common question on here as to how to run a roffle, so I thought a quick how to with some tips and tricks would be useful.
      Basics:
      Numbers 1 to 59 - this allows the use of the lotto bonus ball.  This avoids any chance of accusations of a fix.
      Tip: put this in the first post in the roffle thread. You don't want to have to be going back to the 6th post on page three of a sale thread just to add in a random.
      Participants can pick numbers, or just ask for a random selection.  Tip: once chosen, tag each user against their number using the @ symbol.  Don't use Tapatalk mentions, they don't work.  In fact, why are you still using Tapatalk?
      You don't have to give someone a ticket just because they ask - feel free to ignore requests from fascists, socialists, time wasters, new users or people who use waxoyl.
      Tip: put roffle as a tag and an item prefix.
      Ticket price should be roughly 1/59th of what you want for the car.  Tip: ensnare gambling addicts by offering a multibuy offer.  
      Make sure location and ticket price are in the thread title.
      Make it clear if the car is drivable, MOTd, and for how long it can stay where it is should a winner not be able to collect immediately.
      Once all tickets are allocated, send a message to all victims with payment details.
      Tip: use a modern bank like Monzo or Starling so you know immediately when payments come in.  Sending bank details is relatively low risk, especially with modern banks where a newly set up direct debit would be easy to spot and deal with.
      If you choose to allow PayPal, BEWARE!
      Many intelligent and sensible people are unable to send payments by Friends and Family (which will cost you) or will include "here's your raffle ticket money" in the message (which could lead to your PayPal account being shut down, losing all funds).  Some people then pull the "I didn't receive my item" trick to get their money back, or even claim that their credit card payment was not approved.  In short, taking PayPal payments leaves you liable to lose the money even after you think it's yours.
       
      As the money starts coming in, check off the users in the number list.  When most have paid it's tempting to announce that the next draw will decide the winner - but observe caution here too.  Some people don't pay even after promising to; you don't need to gamble on them.   Wait until you have all the money, then announce that the next lotto draw will be the decider.
      Tip: don't worry about following the draw, someone will want it enough to watch it live.

      Six-Cylinder Entertains – Virtual Roffle of my Maserati BiTurbo
      As I can’t sing or dance I had to think up an alternative entertainment. I have noticed how much people enjoy a Roffle and obviously collection is difficult at the moment so I am holding a Roffle for one of my cars, the difference is it is virtual and no collection needed!
       
      You can dream for a short while of having a Maserati BiTurbo. I value the car at £5,000 so tickets are £84.00, usual format after all numbers are “sold” the bonus number of the next National Lottery draw is the winner
       
      To make it clear you will not get my Maserati at the end of it, neither will you have to pay £84 for a ticket.
      I do have a little treat for the winner as I have a 1:43 scale model of a Biturbo saloon to send them as a gift. If you are the winner and want to be taken out in the real one or maybe even have a short drive after lockdown I will be pleased to accommodate you.
       
      Up for Virtual Roffle is my :
      1987 Maserati 425 biturbo saloon, 2.5 carburettor twin turbo V6 190 bhp and feels more because of a great wedge of torque in the mid range. 5 speed gearbox with dogleg 1st.
      Owned for 7 years.
      MOT 13th November 2020, but I believe it will benefit from having 6 months added to mean it will not need a fresh MOT until May 2021.
      Excellent running condition. Just 60, 000 miles, original leather book pack with service history to 48,000 miles then lots of invoices. Cambelt 2 years ago, brake callipers, recent pair of new tyres. Several rubber fuel lines replaced including the dangerous one that lives in the turbo pressure box.
      The Bodywork is always a bugbear with these and we have chased rust a couple of time, windscreen surround, front wings and boot floor. Now a very sound and tidy car if not prize winning.
      Of course there are some negatives:
      Radio/cassette is not working
      Wheels need refurbishing
      Some wear to the interior
      Idle a little high
      Electric boot release can be a bit problematical
      Bonnet 2nd catch release needs a clip.

      Remember you only win a 1:43 model, but there is nothing to pay to enter.
       
      No I don’t want to sell the BiTurbo this is just for fun.

      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...

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

      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 ?
