What's wrong with the Xant? :shock:

Though I would very much like to have a close look at a 406 coupe 8-)

Nothing, although I need to get on and sort some bits on it but just can't get interested at the moment.

I've also got the Coupé back on the road now and it could do with a run. Its back in daily use and the Activa hasn't been touched since.

If you are interested there will be a very nice deep blue 2L coupé for sale imminently.
Unfortunately crash damaged so a fixer-upper.

Rear bumper has a hole in it where (allegedly) the girl's ex reversed into it in the middle of the night and his towball punched a small hole below the number plate.

Worse is the front where she almost wiped out a cyclist (his fault, shot out of a footpath onto the road right in front of her.
Front bumper badly cracked, bonnet crumpled at the front.
I'd have it if it had hydraulic suspension - an maybe a diesel engine.

Pics if anyone interested. It is a cat C so should be very cheap.

Pretty much. She used to be nice but has increased her dimensions rather too much for my liking.

Nice camper Franklin! Very modern compared to the Talbot!!

Thats a lot of camper for a 1.9TD to haul about.

Isn't it just - the nicest camper we'll probably take to a rally!

I think that one pictured is slightly bigger than ours, but it should be alright. :)

Shock horror though, the awning isn't a Fiamma F45+! :shock: :o It's an Omnistor! :)

Belongs to a neighbour. Cat C is due to the damage by the cycle + the rear bumper.

New front bumper is allegedly £850.

I think the rear would repair. That is equally expensive to replace.

She was going to sell it a year ago then changed her mind, couldn't part with it.

She is now finding it too expensive to run, the insurance has increased substantially and she can't afford the repairs.

Dad and I will hopefully be in this...

...as long as he doesn't sell it before the Rally! :roll: Not too sure what CX we'll have there yet though, although there will be one this year...

A friend will be coming up on Friday in his Talbot Campervan too, and Matt is coming up (I think) in a Campervan and Roger's Prestige too.
