    they're only classic when they have cheap tax or rusty foot wells

    Cheap tax is for vintage cars though...

    Collecting this on Saturday.. belongs to my father for his retirement, but I've already called dibs on some trips! Bought as a fresh import, It's had a total rebuild inside and out, pretty much a new van.

    The Defender is an original irish reg February 1985. It was completely rebuild from scratch 4 years ago. Chassis, rear tub, bulkhead etc. are all original, but the cab and some body parts have been replaced with later TD5 equivalents and it's running a Mazda SL35ti engine these days. It would have been "born" with a 200TDi.

    The Volvo TGB111AMT (or C303 in the civilian version) is apart from the body roll-cage and the camper interior completely original and build 1975.

    /M
    Was beside ye in Molloys gettin some powder coating done and spotted the Volvo when I was there. Very cool indeed!

    When you sit in it and it puts a smile on your face it's classic.classic status has absolutely nothing to do with age.

    Nice 2CV! where can I get spares for mine?


  • Registered Users Posts: 18 carcrazykieran


    Here's a photo of my childhood dream car. Spotted it on the back of a transporter years ago. Made a few enquiries paid silly money in hindsight and spent that amount again plus on getting her back to her current condition. 10yrs of ownership and I still can't believe she is mine.

    How do I post a photo?

    I'm afraid you can't post a photo or a link until you have made 25 posts.

    Looking forward to seeing what car is it, though!

    I don't have the image!

    carcrazykieran - if you get a URL for the image (e.g. photobucket) PM me and I'll add it to your post. You might need to remove the http or www from the link when sending it.
