breakdown truck

Got something to say, but it's not classic related? Here's the place to discuss. Also includes the once ever-so-popular word association thread... (although we've had to start from scratch with it - sorry!)

Chrysler 300C for me please! Oops, did I say Chrysler 300C? I ought to have said Lancia Thesis; Lancia's answer to the Mitsuoka (pistasa) Viewt.

I must try the idea of taking a photo of the next car that I sell from the window of the room where a local serial killer keeps his victims, bound & gagged, before he eats them alive. Will it work for the Alfa? I think that's a fake listing, try asking the seller a question and see what happens! :evil:
That Jag-based kit car looks very much like the real thing from a distance, or is that a publicity photo for a different type of XK homage car? The last Aristocat that I saw had more ripples than a Sharpei after she'd just given birth to ten large puppies and was about the same overall size as the donor XJ6.

Even I can see the potential in that, what a solid looking old lump! So when are you moving in? :mrgreen:

My view as well, a theory that's reinforced by the seller's address, not a valid London postcode.

There must be an opportunity for some local builder to renovate it and sell it to some Brit as a second home at an inflated price. ;)
