Re: Crash! Bang! Wallop!

This thread was the best thread in the entire interwebz last year.

Re: Crash! Bang! Wallop!

Ex-prison van? I'm surprised that found its way into public hands, I would have thought they'd be carefully disposed of. They sell them off all the time. One of my pals has an armoured one converted to living van, another mate had a 7.5 ton ex prison van converted as well. Haven't seen the chap wit...

Re: What did you do today?

Some of the YouTube stuff from overseas is excellent. There's one of truck repairs in Pakistan that was outstanding (I was expecting a horror show) making a virtually complete rear chassis from scratch and hot rivetting it all together. They would be welcome to restore my van for me I watch the Pak...

Granvia dilemma solved. Gearbox playing up again today, it's a breaker.
That's what I bought it for, so, no worries.

Re: What did you do today?

Took delivery of Bournites old Granvia yesterday at around half four. Wuvvum dropped it off and I ran him back to Norfolk, turned around and drove home. Got in around 10:40 PM, had a beer and went to sleep. The good news is, Dave (Wuvvum) said the gearbox behaved perfectly all the way down and the t...

Re: What did you do today?

I am glad it's gone. Had positive response from the other buyer, so, hopefully, he turns up with the money. I still have a Peugeot 205 STDT to sell. I'm not sure I can be arsed, it's worth saving but is it worth enough money to be worth the hassle of selling a project car? Not sure, hence, it can si...

Re: What did you do today?

Caravan finally went today after a very convoluted process. eBay were no fucking use, sold twice on there. One Eastern European winner didn't turn up the first day due to "vehicles issues" and sounded so inept I cancelled the sale and made plans to go see a mate on Sunday. Sunday, about half way to ...

Re: Two wheels good.

My mate had his 900 Hornet nicked last night. Not being a Facebook type, he rang a local mate who is, to be told it was stuck up to its nuts, in a field, about 5 minutes walk away. Last night was particularly cold here, below freezing, so, the bike was stuck there, frozen into the field and immobile...

Re: EBay Finds

How about this to outdo Mr bollox https://m.facebook.com/marketplace/item/387332805720491/ Being registered as an ambulance still gives either cheaper tax or MOT and tax exemptions.

Re: What did you do today?

They did bus and minibus versions, yeah.
Nice to know mine isn't the only "bulletproof" engine that has destroyed itself!
