Trailer Trash

Post by CLINT » Tue Mar 03, 2020 8:41 am

I did do a similar thread on the other place forum but I thought I would log some of my exploits on here...
This old C5 was a good towcar. I used to hire trailers before I bought my own. Oh and some good looking old Lancia, made ugly by an Italian coachbuilder, ruined by British weather then wobbed up by a bloke in a shed on the side of a hill

An old Peugeot being removed from its resting place of fifteen years or so. Bonus Autoshiter content (Puddlethumper. A decent chap but doesn't like change so fears this place. Probably.)

Mk1 Cortina with a Fiat Twin Cam and a mangled grill. It didn't have a mangled grill until we drove up the road and it flew off and the car behind ran over it. The owner who was with me had to retrieve it from the middle of the road. He had temporarily stuck it on with Blu-Tac then forgot...

Sad end to a ZX. Picked up off SixCylinder as a tidy car but snapped cambelt. Fixed it, then it laid around for a while then when it came time for an MoT I found it was too rotten to bother with so I totally stripped it. PS A stuff is good at hiding rot until it's too late. Shame

But at least I have plenty of spares for this ZX I bought off BEep (formally Beige 1100) we still own this, it's Mrs Clints everyday car

Another shiter, Rave who I had not previously met viewed and paid for this Almera for me in London. What a decent chap! My mother drives this about

She had her previous Almera for 18 years and it never went wrong until it's day of retirement when the fanbelt broke. Amazing timing and great cars, so reliable. I thoroughly respect these old things.

Old Clio faced in uncertain future but BEep saved it then AngryDicky bought it and ran it as his everyday car. Apparently it is the newest car he has owned!
