Haha TR7 is a proper TR... a proper bad one lol, we had one, white with a tartan/leather interior. could get the back end out a treat on roundabouts but car cancer took over... parked it up in the garden to do later and 1 winter later it had turned to dust :( it was off road 11 months and when the scrap guy came to pick it up onto his truck it had to be scraped up. it was that moment i decided any work needed doing was to be done there and then!!

Hello all, longtime lurker first time poster.

Driving a 5 series at the moment and just moved to Europe for work.

Joined to get a take on what European car you would buy with an extra €3000 laying around.

I'll start a new thread :)

It will depend where in Europe you are, local tax regimes number of vehicles sold etc etc make significant differences from country to country.

^^^ True that, but 3000 yoyos would buy a very nice, late '80s Nissan Bluebird with history and in very tidy order. :drool:
Washington is in Europe so it qualifies, IMHO.

Hi Mike, welcome to the forum - I also have a Moggie (1965 4 door saloon in Trafalgar blue) and a few others on here do too.

Look forward to seeing more pics of your restoration on that - how bad is the woodwork?

Cheers! :D

Noooooo, that car haunts my dreams, its been spotted lurking in the background of one or two of my threads over the last couple of years, and I admit I have never had a kind word for it lol.

Mikeys a nice lad though and its good to see him here. His woodwork is fair to middling Luxo, the rest of the car has affectionately been known as the "Teabag" for a few years now though it is much solider than it once was. I've offered to kill it with fire on more than one occasion but he has repeatedly turned down my kind offer and insisted I fix it (rather slowly I admit) instead.

Still, it should see the road this year. :thumbs:

Thanks Luxor, I will do a back ground write up over Xmas,
And yes arceye it sure is a TEABAG but with your excellent welding and panel making skills it is soon to back on the road, and for that I can not help you enough, mum would be happy to see her wee traveller driving around again,
Also had her out the garage today... First light in about 2 years.... And my god what a long 2 years it's been eh mick... :lol:
