Re: breakdown truck

Lovely thing, but way too big for a van without a shower. Bound to attract buyers though, I'm thinking young ones with long, dense beards. ;) A forward control Toyota Hiace like the one I owned makes for a far better solution to the non-existent problem of how to get up an icy mountain and make your...

Re: breakdown truck

:?: That's the same link that brought up the rather lovely, 2 door American Volvo 242 in the earlier post. Maybe "someone" :P hadn't saved any links since posting the ad for the Volvo, so ended up pasting that link twice? Maybe. :lol: Is the car in question a recently imported S1 Discovery 300tdi au...

Re: flipping bangers..

New series soon , they are selling cars on eBay if you're interested chaps.. Already available on the Blaze channel or My5, which shows Blaze content as well as other C5 products. I'm liking the cars so far in the new (17th) series of WD. Especially the Bedford CA campervan with the Pinto engine. S...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Jag, Citroens, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

That exhaust manifold looks pretty straightforward... for someone who's used to swapping them on Triumph Dolomites, where they're not only the work of a Krypton Factor winner to reach with any implement known to humankind, but are also - almost always - prone to leaking after they've been on & off t...

Re: I'm back! Ford Anglia 106e (Estate)

Good luck with the V5c. I've only just yesterday received a V5c that was sent in for a keeper name change during May and even then, the document has come back with the wrong VED class on it, which was one of the changes the DVLA had been meant to apply. Apparently, [DVLA] has been a bit busier than ...

Re: breakdown truck

Nah, you're alright Rich, I'll pass on that thanks. :) I'm probably going to get rid of both of my currently usable cars, I've had enough of owning vehicles and am just as happy to enjoy the exploits of youtubers such as Ian "Hubnut" Seabrook and Steph "I drive a classic" Holloway as worry about my ...

Re: What would you buy & why?

:idea: Buy an old Mercedes pre-Sprinter van, the sort of tough old thing that Zel's motorhome is based on, and shove loads of beanbags and other soft furnishings in the back so that your children don't get too badly hurt if you have a crash. Or buy a Maserati Quattroporte which must be one of the mo...

Re: breakdown truck

Hmm, my modern daily driver has a column shift and bench seats front and rear, but I'm not a teenager. :( I do believe that Toyota probably fitted these things for a reason, but that reason isn't practicality as its virtually impossible to move the front seat back & forth without a passenger being p...

Re: breakdown truck

Mmm. Maruti-Suzuki in bright red. :drool:

And for a bonus point, what make and model names did that car wear in its UK market guise?

Re: How the hell do you tow this?

Hmm, we have our share of human oddities hereabouts but parking isn't a problem for my plot as I share my closest neighbour's drive when I find myself having accidentally bought another vehicle without having disposed of one beforehand. She's probably the best neighbour ever and not because she's ha...
