I have to agree with that.
The part which amuses me most is "ultimate showstopper". It will certainly turn heads as people take a second look in disbelief that someone has spent money to make their car look that terrible.

No surprise it has not sold yet.

What amused me was he called it "Classic" ... can't argue with that if he meant the informal use of the word - Cambridge Dictionary "Informal use: extremely or unusually funny, bad, or annoying". :lol:

It's got 14 bids though :shock: Which is probably 14 too many :twisted:

Even though half of the bids are by random bidders with zero or very little feedback !!

Personally, I think Clemo and Dapinky (very apt name :twisted: ) should buy it and take it on a one way trip to Uzbekistan, Tazekstan, Islamabad or wherever they are off to next

Please do the Knob-star a favour. I would contribute a tenner to the good cause

I think I've managed to find a picture of the driver. Just put chavvy twat into Google. Matching colour top as well.

My wife's just divorced me because I wouldn't open the car door for her!
To be fair I panicked and swam straight for the surface.

Maybe it's just my eyes, though!?

Your eyes are very good ! It was parked on a steep hill facing up so more weight on the rear than the front but took photo at bit of an angle. (Rotate to make the gate post vertical and you'll see the incline)
It's actually a couple of mm below the ideal ride height stated in the manual, even though it has 205/40/17 tyres so the effective tyre radius is a few more than OE tyres. Manual says Kerb Condition [full tank, no occupants] is 170mm to underside of front chassis crossmember & 160mm to rear chassis crossmember, + 2mm in each case. So many are running on 'tired springs' that we get used to seeing them much lower than spec'.

Several months ago at a pub meet John Mountain parked his alongside mine and said mine looked high compared to his, which it did ... but he's now rebuilding his.
One of his LEC Facebook photos comparing old and new springs says it all.. (handy reference for what the OE free length should be too)

Should that not be Fire Starter ? :) .

Looks like a fantastic machine to me.... for snow ploughing the back roads then dumping in a ditch.

The first line of Firestarter is, I'm the trouble starter and the last is Pay close attention.
