  1. July sales 2017

    Not been busy with cars, had a couple of nice touches. I have been busy with the VW camper side of my life. I completed and sold a full conversion now on the look out for a clean base van to convert. I have a customer dropping a Caddy Maxi off for a load of work on Friday plus a Leisure battery and few USBpoints on a T5. And On Monday another T5 leisure battery job. I have a customers T5 Camper is a very poor condition that needs a whole pile of love to get to a saleable state. And a Motorhome that is having parking sensors fitted, TV relocating, 240v Inverter, Retro fitting traveling seats. Cant see me getting to BCA this week. But on a serious note I can see cars taking a back seat (pun intended) and more efforts put in to building my camper business.
  2. Something different

    Cadwell is a roller coaster, its one of my favorite tracks. If you ever get to do Portimao that is Cadwell on steriods, its very undulating with off camber unsighted rises and drops. Bloody menta
  3. £4700 today out of a VW T5 camper. Bought as a panel van, threw a load of time and money at it. Could have sold it twice I had to let a second buyer down.
  4. Phone call Thursday evening from a friend who lives in Warwick.Son desperately needs a car. Low miles no older than 2008. I have a 2008 3dr Astra sxi 43k miles, looks as fresh as the day it rolled out of Vauxhall. Pinged a few pics over and he said perfect we will Come on Saturday. MOT was only till Sept so I tried too get an mot booked for Friday. My usual guy can't get me in and neither can my second choice. So I have to take it to the last mot place I would ever want till use. Failum Fred.... You could take a 0 miles car to him and the shithouse will find some thing to fail it on. Sure enough he failed it on a track rod end and a drop link... Wierd as it drove perfectly. Anyway sure enough he pulled my pants down for the jobs.. But im on a time schedule here so I grimace and just pay. Sat morning i give the car a final polish for the wow factor as its a friends son whos having it..... No show, No call, No reply to texts, Wont answer the phone. Brilliant Thanks
  5. Thats just made me laugh, sad part is Im sat here agreeing with everything. That said they are not all arseholes, good percentage of genuine buyers are decent folk
  6. Whatif they offer "Cash tonight mate" ? Cause we all know that offering Cash tonight gets you a better deal!!
  7. Something different

    It does toast the testicles a bit. My bike is my escape, wouldn't be with out it.
  8. Something different

    I tend to do Euro track days. This year I have done Estoril and Portimao Previous years Brno, Jerez, Valencia Done most of the UK tracks Picture whoring alert
  9. Something different

    I do track days on it. Sothat takes away some on road temptation.
  10. Something different

    I dont have a car I call my own a such. I just use Mrs C's Merc I do have a Ducati 1199s for the rare occasion I get time to ride it
  11. Photographs

    I like the video you have done I have been meaning to do one for the VW camper I have for sale. Not sure about the choice of music though, its boarder line Porno Music. Lovely website
  12. Petrol Audis - hard sellers?

    I have never struggled with Mk1 TT's I still think they are a great looking car and will happily buy tidy ones. In fact I have my eye on a very clean 2002 225 at the moment. I sold a B5 S4 Avant (2.7 Bi Turbo model) Those things have a huge following. Could have sold it 100 times over As for the more modern stuff I'd rather have Chlamydia.
  13. Just lost £1200 on the nighmare Corsa I have had since January. Oh well at least the Sun is shining and I have loads of interest in my VW T5 camper I have for sale with a big profit in
  14. I bought a none runnerDucati 916 race bike ( I'm on to my Ducati's) The thing was a mess, it had been in the back of a garage for 8 years untouched.. Long story short it turned out to be a ex 1996 BSB race bike few parts missing but 80% complete. Got offered £8k.. I snatched the guys hand off, I only paid £3k! Nice £5k profit
