For sale....Somethings gotta give...... apparently

Recommended Posts

So - I am being bad again - and am eyeing up another option.

before I commence aforementioned option - I think it may be prudent to consider an antidivorce plan.

anyone want to buy either my S4 once it’s back together in a few weeks - or - and this is the much preferred option - buy my S3 NA ???

over to you guys for the usual abuse/pisstake/support......

Is the Evora's out the window too?

You could always get her an Audi TT or something. That'll keep here quiet for a while.

I reckon you're going to buy that £30K red V8. Looks lovely and what could possibly go wrong?

Yeah - no one wants an old S3 project - ho hum. She may well be going back whence she came.

otherwise - well - the worst case is I’ll finish this S4 in a few weeks - crack the s3 in the spring. All the while hiding a dirty secret in Nobbys barn ?

careful Barry or some unscrupulous chap on here might try blackmailing you into parting with an esprit very cheaply

She's probably cottened on to the fact that all you do is buy wrecks, spend £1000s sorting them, then when they're done you flog them.

I’ve surprisingly never lost a penny on any of my esprits...... I’ve got a real (not man maths) spreadsheet where I keep a very close eye on expenditure

I’m sure there’s this bloke on TLF who will buy any old Esprit, spend thousands on doing it up only to shift it on ten minutes later. If only I could think of his name.......

He’s busy doing a green one if I remember correctly. He should of left the oil seals alone first time round.....

No, that's not him. He's definitely spent thousands on it, but he's kept the car for more than three years, so it must be someone else.

@johnpwalsh there’s always something lurking - I get bored otherwise. My constant schemes do drive the missus nuts. 

Presently working on the buttering up process for mentioning a third motor - just in case. Best to lessen the shock I find ?

That's from a very long suffering partner mate

I still recon on an Evora. I think or Barry is getting tired of working outside in the cold and wet on old car's and wants to close up the tool box, bite the bullet, and have someone take care of he servicing for him now. It's an age thing. Or his wife has finally beaten him into submission with the fatal words. Get rid, clear that scrap out of my kitchen.

Evora / esprit combo in the garage is the ultimate long term aim. 

The next step ain’t that though and that’s all I’m saying......

No defo not - still looking for the invoice which says - dropped head and dented exhaust cam pulley - refitted cam belt one tooth off - used old shagged aux belts4C23B238-11DC-4E61-9097-6BA88D937922.thumb.jpeg.c67cdddc08105a53984564d3c5ab1b32.jpeg

That’s the closest last bill that involves that area of the engine
