    Well I could not be bothered to wait to win the lotto so I went ahead with my collection anyway:
    Here is the list

    1975 TR6
    1972 Alfa GT 1300 Junior
    1975 Daimler 4.2
    1977 Peugeot 504
    1983 Alfasud 1.5Ti

    Well thats enough for anyone to handle.

    Any pictures of the 'Sud? How does it run? Are they hard to find in good shape? Was there a QFV version of these, or was that only the Sprint?

    OK - here is my 504 - taken this this evening. There was lovely bright sunlight until a few seconds before I took these shots - typical luck :mad:
    Its a 1977 one owner L model with 41,000 miles on the clock since new. Starts first time even when left a few days.
    The 'L' has a solid rear axle at the back (the GL had independent suspension) and of course no power steering. It is not bad though as the sterering is very high geared (or is that low geared?) you just have great fun twisting the steering wheel to take a 90 degree corner.
    I always wanted one of these cars as they were my favourite during my school days :D

    :D:D:D

    She's a beauty alright! My family had the estate model in metallic green :) and I spent many happy years being driven around in the back when I was a nipper.

    Where did you pick this one up?

    Let me know if you ever want to sell her. Seriously. I spent about 25 mins drooling over one in spain much to her indoors' boredom.

    I saw it on Ebay and just agreed the price (used the 'buy it now' option) drove it back al the way from London. stg£1,700 - still a good deal IMO :D

    Well worth it. I had a look on ebay/google last night, the only 70s one I could find was some joker in Argentina looking for £10,000 sterling or a swap for a brand new Golf Gti. You've got to love his optimism.

    I know - just realised it when I had clicked the button - sometimes I can do things like that :o
