The Volvo 740 is on Ebay, probably the best one of a bad bunch. Looks okay if you're into hunting! wobble

Give him respect, he dared to have his X6 painted green rather than white.

I don't mind that... A nod to the 80's modifying trends that were cool at the time.

When I bought it , it was on standard and frankly quite weedy looking Volvo alloys , with dodgy alloy wheel spacers which would come loose after 5 miles or so

I had a set of steel spacers /adapters made up , and fitted wide Porsche split rims , and the Grabber tyre that are on it now.
We also sorted out a few TV bodges , gave it a full service and fitted a decent exhaust system .
The red Bently with extra headlights is used to advertise a Bentley breakers in France. frown Poor car.

Team Dredd(less) - a quick search back through past LM threads will find a few likely candidates!

That Rover was for sale in Barnsley? Can't help thinking of Rita, Sue and Bob Too laugh

Agreed re losing the "Cosworth spoiler"; paint it black, add straight thru exhaust and sports jacket rolled up to the elbows & maybe a pair of aviator shades. Better still, volunteer for "Movember" to really complete the picture. hehe

Was browsing MX5s on ebay and came across this bizzare mk1 headlight conversion.

www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MAZDA-MX5-EUNOS-CONVERTIBLE-1-8...

How strange looking. There wasn't a single thing wrong with the mk1's pop-up lights!

It just occured that 80s cars seem to have wide wheels with huge tyres and try to get the arches to fit over them. Now folk get huge wheels with small tyres and stretch them to fit under the standard arches. Just an odd observation!
That hyundai coupe seems to have an appropriate plate, 'Yerg!' sounds like a reaction to seeing it!

Do you know what will set that car off nicely? a completely white steering wheel.
