Re: Wobland Spottage

Fingers crossed the Passat hasn't Bern hacked too much. Apart from the front it looked to be in nice original condition. tmp-cam-1709531618.jpg I had to move this the other day, it's actually not in bad nick apart from the bumper, starts first touch every time too. A while back it was the source of ...

Re: How not to get a MGB back on the road

I'm assuming they'd have to do quite a bit of structural bracing before even attempting the sill repairs or the doors wouldn't close after they'd cut all the shit out and replaced it with new? 5K still sounds a bit strong to me too tbh.

Nah that's Scurvy Badger. I hate the poxy things, I'm going to rip the XUD and box out of it then weigh it in!
Mat might want the rad and expansion bottle if same as his? The engine and box if XUD is ideal for kit car projects ;-)

Re: Wobland Spottage

Travelling back now and managed a couple more. Very clean Mk1 Golf in Lhasa green iirc? A metro Ascot and a Mk1 Passat with an intercooler very stealthily* mounted in the front of it. A mate had one at college many moons ago, haven't seen one in forever! tmp-cam-596445664.jpg tmp-cam-1835400319.jpg

In Plymouth today. Travelled down in my mates scruffy old Golf which is still providing excellent transport and look what rolls up. It was a full grey leather interior auto, few rust bubbles but in surprisingly good nick otherwise.

Re: Scruffy's Scrappers

Not my car and not a scrapper just yet but my old man has treated himself to a sports car 20 years later intended because life got in the way. He didn't even know these existed but liked the look of them when I showed him a pic. It really sounds the part and has obviously been looked after, it's rea...

Re: What did you do today?

Not today, but yesterday's work was to deliver this family heirloom back to its dry garage. IMG_20200118_153921.jpg Some dodgy looking fella was staring at me so I said hello just to be polite in case he tried to rob me. This is Kidderminster after all. Turns out he had a Marina and a nice one too ...

Re: Scruffy's Scrappers

True, I did a bit to a Vito a few years back and it was really frilly. This things saving grace is the tranny engine tbh, those old banana engines just keep on chugging but it's a properly agricultural experience, especially with this being a twin wheel on the rear, 50's where it's happy at. It stil...

Re: Scruffy's Scrappers

The old bus is now even more of a patchwork quilt than it was before. Nothing too major tbh, a bit under tha battery, drivers footwell and the wheel inner arches on both sides. There's a bit more to do underneath too but I'll do that when the weather's a bit better and use the pit. Mat bought anothe...
