 Sold my transit truck this morning, Was a hard decision to make as it was really a little minter & 110% reliable.

The reason for selling it was because it will become part of my living now so I replaced it with this

That's also a smart looking vehicle. A good few less years on it than the other, and do I see a TDCI badge on there too?


Did you manage to make any profit selling the old 'un?

 Well spotted with the tdci badge [au]


This one drives so much better (Old one drove mint though!) feels more car like & you dont need to rev it as hard to move.


Made £600 profit on the old one [:D]

A turbo diesel is a much easier drive than a NA diesel isn't it. And fuel economy will be better as well.


Smart move.

Dont know if I will be leaving the "Scrap Cars Wanted" Part on it or not yet, Took the previous owners company name & phone number off as soon as I got it home,

All the rest of the stickers that I left on it will be used the same but my name & number

 Its a very tidy one, 1995 2.0 GT, No rust at all, engine is mint, its on 117k with full Toyota history, 10 Months MOT & 2 Months Tax,


Used It for the last 2 days & it drives mint! Very responsive, Its in need of a good machine polish to get it back to its full Glory.


Also picked up a nice mint Golf 1.6 S, 5 Door in Cayman Red, Good spec with Electric windows & Sunroof, Remote central locking, 86k with full VW history & only 1 owner,


Golf has just gone on sale (Just got to put new MOT on it) Waiting for V% for Celica (Has just had cherished transfer)
