Ones you should never have sold?

#1 Post by Paul240480 » Sun Mar 10, 2019 1:00 pm

As title, pics if poss please, I'll start:

^^^that was my 2nd car & it never put a foot wrong, Opel! Chopped it for a Vaux Cav 1.6GL the build quality between the German & Luton (?) built ones was miles apart.

Image
^^^^My first Ovlov, a Torslanda, chopped it for a lovely 855T5 but always , after had a hankering to go back to a '240' shape. I did with 'The Tank', bit the B200e was never as refined as the B200f (even if the 'e' was more reliable).

Next..... :thumbs:

I don't have any pics, and most of what I regret selling are bikes, but I do miss my plymouth volare wagon on the 4 wheel list, and as for the 2 wheelers, RD400 cafe racer, RD250LC (the actual press bike that was tested and featured in MCN), fast road tuned RD350LC, Suzuki Katana 1100, and a Rickman Kawasaki Z1000 turbo. All those bikes are making big bucks now.
The mk2 Escort van I put a 1600GT engine and diff in would be nice to have as well, and the Jag 420 M/OD, the list goes on......
Currently over 35 years worth of fixing 35 boxes.
Hoping to reach 65 years worth of fixing 65 boxes.
