  1. I think these prices are absolutely absurd. These are fabulous cars but they are not £80k machines when far more exotic cars in similar condition sell for less.
  2. Tax expired in 1997 and no MOT on record since records went digital in 2006. Not looking hopeful.
  3. It was the talk of the adult room amongst certain former members circa 2007.
  4. Vista

    Just plain wrong!

    Did I add these horrors previously?
  5. Not that I've ever seen. Don't worry about deleting stuff, you never know when someone might come back to it.
  6. Every new thread on here gets automatically posted on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. Sometimes people answer on there.
  7. Answer from the thread link on twitter
  8. Not me Jo, this is 90% down to Chris' efforts. People could achieve the same with club stands in their local areas if they wanted to manage them.
  9. £29,995 the link to the Ad is in my post. Dug out a few pics of my old one, D808RDV. I remember going out for a day out in Paignton many years ago and by random coincidence ended up parked next to a mark 2 XR2 in the same colour with the reg no D807RDV. Interesting on checking the DVLA's system that the Capri was recorded as Grey but the Fiesta as Silver. I bought this car in 1992 or 3 with about 30k on the clock. Sold about 4 years later with around 60k for not a lot less than I paid for it. Loved this car, standard but for the electric windows and walnut dash trim I fitted. The Door cards and dash had already been butchered for non standard audio by the time I bought it. I saw it up for sale 10 years or so ago (still with the same owner I sold it to) but it was on 120k plus by then and was in need of a full restoration. I considered buying it back (briefly). It's currently showing as MOT expired in 2013 so not sure whether it survives or not.
  10. Mercury Grey 2.8i Special, I had one in this colour for about 4 years in the early to mid 90's. It's currently for sale but is pretty expensive being very low mileage
  11. It's always a great show with a huge variety of tin on display.
  12. And sailed around the world in a number of different ships and not met any sea monsters (well, other than in Curacao! But that's another story and definitely not one for an open forum) nor fallen off the edge, I was already fairly confident that the world was not flat. Today however I feel I need to see more proof
  13. Now sold and on their way up to Poole to fit a car imported from Greece.
  14. Vista

    Just plain wrong!

    Prancing Hearse?
  15. They're pretty cute to be fair.....and the original request was for rats......a request I recoiled in horror at!
  16. Well Snowball is now Noballs so that shoul put an end to his hash!
  17. My kids are 10 and 8. If either of them starts to breed, someone is in big trouble!
  18. I don't have grandkids!
  19. Puts my job painting the fence to shame. Before shot of part of it, 55metres in total. On the upside, Mr Miyagi reckons I'll be a black belt by the time I am done!
  20. The info at the end of the program was that anyone who lived in Britain during the affected period (I can't remember the years they quoted) cannot give blood anywhere else in the world.
  21. If there's a Mad Cow in British politics right now, it's a toss up between Diane Abbott and Wee Jimmy Crankie North of the border as to who's worst affected!
  22. On Mad Cow disease and didn't realise that even now 30+ years later, they're still at risk of developing the disease? I am sat here with my hand in the air! I thought it was a disease that was a result of eating infected beef at the time and that any cases that there were going to be would have developed by now. Now I learn that they think in some people it's possible it could have an incubation period of 50 years before it develops! Jeez that's a scary thought.
