  • If you think that is bad check out co parts salvage auctions.

  • the wheels look a bit basic. I wonder if some kind of kit car. the profile is just a bit random.

    hope you can sort a reveal out for us in future.

  • A Mini Marcos. Or some other '60s British mistake.

  • I’m saying clan crusader

  • The wheels looked like minlites

  • Scimitar Sabre, ss thing

  • Definitely minilites or lookalikes

  • Indeed. But what size?

  • Clan Crusader :), blimey, not seen one of them since the 70's. Someone near me when I was growing up had a vile green coloured one lol.

  • A friend of mine once bought a clan body shell on eBay for £13. He never did anything with it either as far as I know

  • I had a Scimitar once , I think I owned it 4 days possibly only 3

  • Great engine

  • (It isn’t lovely, it was £500)

  • Any interest in a Volvo V90 Momentum D4 Auto, Diesel, 2017, with about 20k miles on the clock?

    It has a retractable towbar, and I could also chuck in a battered Thule rack. It is also euro6. quoting about £17.5k for it, but I expect that would get chipped back if I took it in. Would let it go on here for about £16k, but happy to be educated if people think that is the wrong price.

  • Haha wow! Why isn’t it lovely?

  • Lots of peeling paint, release bearing noise, ripped seats etc etc.
    Going to be raced around a field, lol. Updates to follow.

    Felt a bit sad leaving it at the farm with 11 days left on MOT but need to remember what it's for! And don't want to blow it up. It definitely drives like it's £500's worth

  • Banging gentrifier wagon.

  • Need to get my old mk4 VW Golf started to take to the garage to see if its worth fixing and selling or scrapping. Haven't got a battery atm, as its only needed temporary can I fit any old battery? Or do I need the correct battery to get it started. Its not been started for 4 years.

  • Yeah. But we are going car free so I can become really sanctimonious.
