The Heirloom Laguna Deux

Post by SiC » Fri Jul 05, 2019 10:05 pm

Not sure if there is going to be much interest on this one as it's not a classic car, but I'll start the thread for now anyway.

Tomorrow I'm off to sort out and get running a free car. As we all know a free car is not actually free. This has been sat for nearly two years and I have no idea if it will actually run.

If I do get it running and moving, then I'll be arranging a collection to have it transported home or to my local friendly garage to be MOT'd.

I've never got a free car in my life. The closest I came was an ex Bundespost Beetle I got for a bottle of wine, because its owner thought it'll never pass another TÜV. Imagine his surprise when it passed after fitting a set of uncracked part worns and changing the king pin bushes.

Tool list. First item is very important for this car. Especially as the battery has been flat for at least a year.

The car also speaks, so it'll be interesting to see what it has to tell me when it's powered up again.

I got a free car once, it was an eight year old Skoda Estelle.
Got 6 months out of it before it completely crapped out.

About 15 years ago when scrap was on it's arse I got a few free cars. the highlights were a 2 cylinder citroen visa. a mazda rx7. a 5 year old rover 214 and a 3500s rover P6. Sold them all on after getting them running for a nice profit.

You could leave 99% of that behind and add the 2 vital elements you missed out - the set of plates that are taxed and your AA card once you have dragged it onto the road.
