Re: 1995 2.0 Celebration for sale - Newcastle Upon Tyne

Davey, hope you are well!! You know the car better than anybody..... The rust is in all the places that it was when I bought it, just worse after 2 years of use... The dent on the wing is a shame (happened in a car park, no idea what hit it), but is fixable, or wings do pop up on ebay now and then ...

Re: 1995 2.0 Celebration for sale - Newcastle Upon Tyne

Bugger, bugger, bugger!

Yes, I loved this car and very much regretted selling it. :wall:

I need to put some proper thought into this, truly tempted as this was a lovely car.

Damn

Cupholder Armrest!

Right, pretty much my first post on here since selling ol' Poppy last July, hello again :hopping: Here is my Armrest I bought about 2 years ago. Sold my beloved 480 a year ago now and although I have every intention of getting another someday I thought I might as well let this go. When I got it all ...

Re: Dash switches and rare extras...

Having sold them wheels I had on the 480 the other day I thought I should share this lot with you before they end on Sunday.

Re: Poppy the Celebration - AcidicDavey's Turn!!

So the only time I accidentally double post on this forum is when I say it'll be the last post in the thread? D'oh!

It said it wasn't possible to post so coming on here today I wasn't expecting to see my post once, nevermind twice!!

Re: Poppy the Celebration - AcidicDavey's Turn!!

The car sold to a newly registered member. I hope he makes a thread here of his own ;) He was only able to come down on one specific day, which was Thursday of course as his Father was going to the south west so was able to give him a lift. He contacted me through eBay, we agreed a price over the ph...

Re: was power steering standard ...

All 480s had power steering I believe.

It's not the lightest system in the world be easy enough, it would probably be heavier than a Micra in any circumstances!

Re: My 95 480 Celebration For Sale - Poppy!

It comes with great sadness but Poppy is now on her way to her new home with her new partner all the way up in Newcastle.

We were satisfied on the price we agreed on and I'm very satisfied with who she's gone to.

Enjoy her Michael, and look after her! ;)

So I washed the car for what might possibly be the last time today :( For anyone wondering why my old photos aren't showing it's because of a limit on my PhotoBucket account. As so many people have been viewing my images recently I've reached my free bandwidth limit! It will reset on the 25th. For n...

Re: My 95 480 Celebration For Sale - Poppy!

As I said yesterday in the eBay listing, the spoiler got damaged yesterday when turning the car around on a friend's drive, just caught the bank! D'oh! 2 and a half years with me and I only scrape it or whatever but then I put it for sale and crack! It snapped on the Driver's corner and was hanging ...
