Re: My Morris minor v8

Re: valuation prices

I have always preferred the style of the SII, the 2 door is the best looking Minor IMHO. Wouldn't have the 803 though, the 948 is a much sweeter and tunable engine. Still looking for the right car. On the wider issue of valuations, there are a lot of later cars at speculative prices, especially Trav...

When the kids were small we found soiled disposable nappies would burn, any niff went up the chimney.

Re: Yet another dodgy ID on eBay

Beats me why ebay doesn't ban their IP address or get the fraud squad involved. Reeks of organised crime.

Re: Yet another dodgy ID on eBay

I see the usual eBay scammer has had a blue fit and listed pages of dodgy listings this morning. Does anyone fall for this nonsense?

Re: Carboot Bargain

I have a Kamasa 1/2" drive socket set from the 1970s. Only one socket ever failed and that was because the socket handle had a 4 foot pipe on it (stupid tyre fitter had used a windy gun). It was the best tenner I ever spent. Old Kamasa are very underrated, newer ones are rubbish.

Re: Fancy being a TV star?

Would have done far better with a simple quality respray in one of the 'correct' colours and adding sensible mods. Wheeler Dealers did a Minor better and sold cheaper at£7k. It was a much better car IMHO. Methinks Drew believes too much of his own hype.

Re: eBay Scammers

A lot link back to organised crime and E.European crime gangs. They're also diversifying into GumTree and other similar sites. This is why I'm most likely to buy via club or private ads.

Re: Not what they used to be!

In the late 70s the big yard near Croft circuit was excellent.Loads of 50s and 60s. Inside the big shed was the pre war stuff. All lost in a massive blaze in 1979. Also was a good yard near Leyburn but the owner was hard to deal with. In my own town I got a load of splittie bits off a car the owner ...
