Hang about a hen pecked minute. You're a stoodent. How the bloomin eck are you running a Discovery, plus a nova and still have cash left over to squirrel away a chevette?! I'm working 60 hours a week and can barely keep the astra going! Nice looking disco though, hope you take it off road lots.

right - squirreling away at the chevette - lack of cash means that no squirreling has been done in a long time :cry:

the nova - she's mine, but rather poorly an di cant be arsed to change the clutch and rear brakes on a car i am going to scrap as soon as i can afford ot replace it (shell is fooked!)

the disco - technically it's my dads spare. it has 240K on the clock - and even though it had a new engine put in 50K ago it's book value is only about 2-3K. when he got a new one it was more useful to him as a spare than that kind of money - it's never going to be worth any less than 2 grand anyway! So whilst the nova is ill i have an 'agreement' with the old man meaning i get to use it. It's quite good fun and a bit different from the norm. I off road it whenever possible but have to keep it quiet else my dad will go tits! Took her out around nant y'moch yesterday and gave her some abuse over the side roads of the backroads of the backroads of the mountains, was a cracking days fun.

incidentally - if anyone's interested it's theirs for 3 and a half grand

at about 80 quid to fill the tank up though it makes me whimper!

when i was at uni i had a mk2 escort road rally car, and mitsi lancer stage car and a 205 GTi. not paying tax made quite a differance, and of course in those days i got a full grant and a loan (took ages to get shot of that) i was also driving lorries in the holidays.

only started seeing some cash together when i became a 'jobber' last October (i would have more but for a bad debt and a couple of months out of work)

:lol: i'd normally opt for a jubilee clip, a beer can and a bit of gungum, but i'm not sure it's going to work for a backbox! :shock: (it fell off at the weld)

it's a git on the disco as the pipe bends awkwardly around the axle assembly. I'm not sure if it's going to be easier to fumble around trying to force it through or whether just to drop the back axle down. there goes my sunday afternoon anyway! :lol:

my Dad's went in the same place on his cavalier. it failed the MOT and it wasn't worth fitting a new rear section so he found a piece of pipe of the right OD and shoved it in so it wedged in the bend. the backbox stopped it going forward somehow, i think there's a step in there, and it passed the MOT without any problems.
