    Unverified Ownership 1989 Mini - Andeh's notactuallyaCooper

    Nice looking "cooper". I don't see it would need a much change. Maybe old school race seats. At 2005'ish I had Mini 1000, it was 1989 too. Offered 2/3 of asking price as I thought I'd could walk away and buy AW11 but ended with Mini. It was in nice condition, except the Lord of darkness, Lucas...

    Ownership Verified: Anesthesia's 4G Civic

    You know, I think that killed the engine ;) But like you said, it died doing what it was build to do and after 15 years and 350k, it did well.

    Ownership Verified: Berlingo is dead, long live Berlingo!

    First MOT for White Knight, did not pass. Left front lower track arm and track rod joint were properly dead, which had been waiting for motivation. Handbrake didn't work on leftside. Got front suspension done today, will re new whole rear brakes tomorrow and change engine oil. Drives great...

    Congratulatios. You are connoisseur of weird, ugly and boring. Even tho I don't understand it, it does give greyness to full rainbow and in a way helps to understand certain things existing. Even if it is missing all the EVOness car possibly can, I think it would do great on the cool wall...

    Yesterday I changed the valve cover gaskets, cambelt and waterpump, also found that right hand side engine mount was in two pieces, so that banging sound found cure. I think I found what's wrong with rear axle, too short shocks. So it it needs new shocks and alternator belt.

    Washed and serviced the car today, partly. I have never had as dirty car, ever. First round I flushed dust and gravel from every possible place, it took multiple times until CITROËN and BERLINGO signs in trunk were clean, door plastic bumb covers took 5 minutes, sand and dust just kept coming...

    Since last update I washed the interior, black shitty water and almost an inch of sludge in bottom of wet vacumcleaners bucket. Serviced the engine and installed new multi rib belt and bearings, but... Berlingo had started the final leg. Engine had started to have hickups, clutch started to...

    Check'd from service book, I did last year service 27.10 and this year 28.10. Now I have to say I feel shame, our yard and whole neighbourhood is under massive renevation so I could not use our yard, so I drove to nearby cold station to swap winter tyres and changed oils in same time with...

    Ownership Verified: Numero 26, Vespa!

    Hi I have a Vespa! So happy! Friend of mine bought smallframe Vespa 90 last summer for next to nothing. After devilish test drive (yes one of those scary ones where you give your soul to xxx and see if you come back with it or having lost it) I fell in love and have not wanted others own like...

    Shame there isn't 8 wheels, MXM could have set of them too, just for fun. I see that happening at the same day as 205 get's 1.9 16V.

    Where we are going, there might not be roads... '99 Fiat Panda 4x4

    Damn, that is expensive to service. Love the car! About the double handbrakes, good news! they are legal here ;) As long as the original hand brake works. But I suspect this Panda will not see much hard core off road use. I know that if you want small off road capable car, you would be looking...

    After installing the clutch I had forgotten to buy new clutch cable. Well I wasn't in a hurry, wire itself was in ok condition and still work'd, but barely. Thanks to worn clutch the biting point was on last 6th of pedal movement with the new one and it really had to be pressed to the floor to...

    Ownership Verified: We can rebuild it... we have the technology (7 - take two)

    Having driven that friends car quite a bit with that bike rack setup, it doesn't bother at all. Amazingly handy, secure and weather proof system that takes about two seconds to remove. Box sits in such angle that you do have a quite good left rear-quarter, view is better than most modern hachbacks.

    So the summer is gone and summer car's first tour of duty is over. It did it well, even suprised us with great highway mileage (6.8l to 100km or 42 mpg, had to double check it as I did not believe it) and by having an working AC. Sadly we didn't have that many hot days but at least it helped...
