Re: What would you buy & why?

how difficult is it to source & fit a new engine?? Sourcing one is easy enough and they don't usually break so find yourself a dead Avensis with the same unit and buy that to use as a donor. I've never done an engine out job on one of these, but it's pretty much a conventional, front wheel drive sh...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

This is outstanding work and you certainly don't hang around. Well done, here's wishing you well with the rest of the AC project. That's a tidy looking C5 and a gorgeous dog. :)

Re: What would you buy & why?

I'm liking the camouflage on the VW van. It was difficult to see that there was a vehicle in the picture at first because the effect is so convincing. :mrgreen: You're never getting the hots for a broken Escort van are you?

Re: What would you buy & why?

I do have a fondness for Kei class commercials, as the better of my current pair of 4x4s suggests, but what a shame that someone ruined the clean lines of the Mazda truck by clagging a VW themed front panel and badges to the poor wee thing. :( TO FIND A PICKUP WITH A VW GRAFTED FIBREGLASS FRONT IS E...

OK, so does anyone want an early Discovery TDi with a perfectly solid chassis that's still attached to the shell at all of the appropriate places? I can't help thinking that an Allegro is the...

Holy thread revival, Batman! :shock: Holy lost admin guy revival, Bnicho! Don't suppose you know what became of Terry do you? Is there a pasture somewhere, on which admins graze in the sun as they recover from the stress of viewing so many images of fine BL vehicles from days gone by? :scared: GHT-...

Especially for anyone who kept a set of (Hydrolastic) Maxi "bottles" some years ago after the car for which they'd been earmarked was sold and the buyer didn't feel the ...
