ROOTES SPOTS - New year crap pics.

Got to be a retired fire truck (yes, I still have my Matchbox one...) but wow, thanks for posting, I love it! Re the Ford D: it took the manufacturers an awful long time to wake up to the fact that drivers spend vast tracts of time in the cab, and therefore need something decent. 8 hours? Bloody amateur...

Fiesta is to be cleaned so I can put it on Ebay for him. If that 1300 Cavalier was at the right price when / if it comes up for sale I will have it myself.

Chevette looks far too good to be binned. What's the script with these cars please Mr 1725?

 

A friend of mine had amassed a quantity of cars over a period of time he thought were too good to be scrapped or saved from banger racing. Some are to be done up when time allows - some are broken up for these cars and some end up on Ebay when I put them on for him. HE is a Ford fan of the 60s-70s-80s cars/vans and his son buys xr3 / xr2 / convertibles hence a few there. Allthough clearing space they are still buying what comes up at the right prices.

At the VBOA parts day earlier in the year I was speaking to a 1300 Mk1 Cavalier owner - who told me there were only two known survivors. That one definitely looks restorable, and would increase the global population by 50%

 

Must post some pix from that day - some lovely old stuff in the car park

So it sould - reading the side it was a record breaking car (when new I assume as I cant find info on the net). 118.16 mph over 12 hours (Diesel) And 18 other national records broken. Interesting but I cant find the info :?
