  1. What came in the Post Today?

    You were doing all that but didn't upgrade to Avensis at the same time? Curious why not G? Not exactly in post, more in van, but man with van popping a fresh pair of Eagle F1s on the front right now. Lovely jubbly.
  2. happy birthday Johnyboy

  3. Selling repo'd cars? Advice required

    As above. Take proper advice. First of all check with DVLA who the registered keeper is. That is however not necessarily the legal owner. You need to be sure the legal owner is the same "Person" as the debtor. Then you will need to HPI them to make sure they are not owned by a finance company. Nemo dat quod non habet is a basic rule that you can't sell what you don't own. A repossessing Landlord may have some right to sell the tenants fixtures and fittings but with regards to possible assets like these I would recommend you obtain a ccj for the money and put the bailiffs in to enforce it. You can upgrade enforcement by transferring it to High court as they have more enforcement powers. You could try applying to DVLA on a V62 to obtain a V5 but that only says who the registered keeper is. It is not a document of title, but I wouldn't buy a car without one personally. I deal with conveyancing work rather than litigation so these are suggestions not formal advice! Contact a specialist before doing anything but wandering in. lifting and flogging them willy nilly is errrm a bit high risk! If you sell them without checking you may end up having your collar felt for theft or Taking without consent! This is not a good thing.
  4. Dean 68 In Memoriam

    If you are not familiar with Dean's story please look in the Club Chat forum "Back in hospital" thread. As a parting gesture and typical of the man he has left the club a legacy of £1000 towards equipment, events or possibly otherwise. The money has of course come via the lovely Helen to whom I am sure The Management will defer before using it but that is the question. How can we make the very best use of this money? Suggestions please. Get creative!
  5. What came in the Post Today?

    Car is disgustingly dirty and jet washing not leaving it gleaming. Time for annual clay bar and Fusso sealant, KOG & Sonax. Except sealant has vanished. Gutted. One tub is enough for a lifetime you need so little. Replacement has arrived. Now how about a dry weekend?
  6. Celica photo challenge.

    On the baisis nothing is happening I propose Gaz sets a more feasible challenge without delay!
  7. Dean 68 In Memoriam

    The idea is good enough but all the meets are quiet at the moment. I think the management are best just ring fencing it for when the Jenny blows up or similar.
  8. A camera cannot lie.................but it may deceive. I was going to learn the dark art of hdr on my canon in the summer. Would have taken hours............. Check phone. Has a button for that. Cool! Sorted 2 seconds. Almost worth cleaning the car to try it out..................Almost.
  9. Dean 68 In Memoriam

    Well as I can be tempted that far by a bag of chips and some mushy peas I guess I am in, like I could say no. I can certainly bring an official BTR collecting bucket if someone else wants to carry it but you do have to ask for money or you just stand about like a lemon. B'stard lawyers do not suffer this affliction, but 4 hours over 2 days at JAE is about enough ta. I will do training if required tho. Cars that have travelled less then 200 miles are of course excluded from show and shine for laziness. Question. Apart from the S&S trophy this doesn't spend the money as such. We also need to think of something that will last the club for years. We have just got new pogoda marquee things , we have a Jenny hmmmmmmmmmmmmm still thinking.
  10. Night breaker ultimate blew after about 2 years Decided to go for a change to Osram Blues. I'll ;let you know how they compare............
  11. rear wheel bearing

    If you do try changing tyres avoid Pirelli for the same reason Kumhos or Falkens for mid range Eagle F1 asymmetric3s or Rainsports for premium are the most popular choices.
  12. happy birthday Mondo!

  13. Club Calendar 2018 - CANCELLED

    MINE WILL BE A BIT LATER than usual. Meant to get some proper ones done but never really happened. Can I send a preliminary one to dawn.b-pyne@hotmail.co.uk as it will be over 2 MB and I will try and do a good one whilst I am on hols during early November? Wheels and tyres not up to snuff and bods in background distracting. Must do better!!!
  14. Celica return?

    Ooooh he does indeed have insider knowledge! For those of you that enjoy his posts you will be aware of his pussy. It's a stealth computer cat from which much Mr T info can be downloaded. I'm not sure if pussy's name has been posted but I christen it with the acronym.......... Cat At Toyota For Us Celica Knowledge.
  15. Selling a car... Test drives?

    Technically I can't argue that with a valuable car but most of my sales have been little better than Dublet's IE shed like. Now if I was selling BB I would be as fussy as a Dad on daughters Prom night!
  16. Selling a car... Test drives?

    I agree. I have sold dozens over the years and never had a problem. If I thought they were serious I drove first to let them listen for noises, look for smoke etc Then I would go through haggle phase. If we weren't agreed on price then no drive. If they got to drive I just said three rules, Please observe speed limits, please check mirror before testing brakes, bend it and you buy it (having checked they had a decent deposit)
  17. No MoT for 40 Year Old Cars

    Cars should be subject to MOT test Drives should be subject to IQ test
  18. 'Riced' Celicas

    Chavs..............
  19. Celica return?

    Maybe yes, maybe rose tinted spectacles. I remember the early ones as a bit angular, the later ones as fat auto's. Known as great white whales in the trade. Sports cars should be light and manual. Each generation should show advancement, which is why the Celica ended with the 190 Otherwise you end up completely f.king up a classic like the MGB, leather interior to vinyl to deckchair material, chrome bumpers to WTF were those USA regulation monstrosities stuck on the front? Recycled dustbins ffs???
  20. Celica return?

    With apologies to the religiously sensitive the Celica has had more reported 2nd comings than Jesus.................
  21. Celica return?

    Just a refile. The demise of the Celi was down to the fact they couldn't make enough money out of 2.0 ltr coupe sales and as the GT86 exists and is generally well regarded I don't see they will think there is a market for it. For once I would be happy to be completely wrong...........................
  22. If it wasn't for Google I would spend much (more) time on here with NFI of what was going on. Even with it and when the smoke clears I am not entirely sure. Want some Lewis?
  23. Hmmmmm Lower, darker, meaner, sleeka. Where have I seen that before??? Lookin good Baz.
  24. GA61 investment?

    ensure your income will exceed your expenditure or your upkeep will be your downfall. Irritatingly like gravity . Argue with it all you like. You will lose, & usually painfully.
