Something a little different 'bloggy' & not quite classic!

#1 Post by Paul240480 » Wed Nov 14, 2018 5:56 pm

As some of you know I sold the old 240 & 850, & got a V70T5. So that leaves us one each with SWMBO's Ph2V70 ! Previously we had 3 vehicles, & intended to go back to 3 again once we'd found something that suits.....
It must be an 'age thing' as we were going down the motorhome route. :lol:
Budget certainly not being high, the hunt was on, mainly on the french LeBonCoin website.
Eventually I found one not too far away & within budget. Sounds good.....erm' well it had sat in a barn for the best part of three years..... so was probably in need of some TLC.
Went for a look, had a spin after the owner said he'd got it running & later made a cheeky offer insisting that he put a cambelt kit on & get a full Controle Technique (MOT) done in that price. He only went & accepted!
So about 10 days later ,MOT went straight through. Cambelt kit done saw me driving home in this old (ish) beast! And ownership has been fun & 'entertaining'.

(Pics after a clean up, it was rather 'green' in places!)
If theres any interest I'll continue as a blog' as I enjoy making these types of threads. If not, no worries 8-)

That's a stylish looking van, and not too massive either. My taste in vehicles is diverse to say the least so the van gets a big "more please!" from this member.

Late Ford Sierra?
Some people are like Slinkies - they serve no useful purpose, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them downstairs.

I couldn't decide whether they were Sierra or late FWD Escort, maybe both Fords used the same units?

Maybe Escort then? But the Pistonheads :thumbs: image is interesting to me as I've never met a Sierra as new as that one. Old stock at the time of registration perhaps?
