I think the only problem I'd have looking round there is that most of those cars will probably be better than Timex!

I think it is- good spot! With the bonnet and front end missing it was hard to tell what it was. :shock:

Ah - I see it now, didn't spot it was a 4 door before, and thought it was something else. I suspect the bonnet may be on the extreme left of shot. That'd be a really brave restoration for someone!

You're right - there's the bonnet. Fancy a PL17 in need of a little TLC and a bit of welding Mike!? #-o

Now that's either brave or reckless! I reckon there's absolutely nothing salvageable there - even the rear subframe/chassis appears to have been smashed and bent when it was hurled against that wall! :(

Probably a bit of both, but those who have seen some of my current (and past)projects know what I'm like. TBH, I need to get some of the current projects out the way before I even consider anything else, no matter how foolish! (although I said that before Timex, the Faclcon and the CZ250!)

Evening rust lovers - there's a bit of interest then despite the bad jokes! The Panhard has been there for donkeys and I believe it was well-crunched when he got it. The majority of the useful bits have been sold over the years but I think the subframe (the only bit that is isn't almost back to the elements) and a few bits of glass are okay!

You would be very surprised how well the cars clean up. A good wash will turn the better ones from scrappers to viable projects. Have a look at my estate and compare it to the GTi. Admittedly the Gti is a bit greener but my estate wasn't so far off it when I started. Funny how some of them attract the gunge where others don't! the pair of Xantias were driven to that spot a week ago.

With reference to the prices, I don't know what costs of things would likely be but I would say economy of scale would apply in that the more that's wanted the cheaper it's likely to be. Buying a whole car for bits would be a good bet if you can transport. If there is a complete and straight car though (despite the green-ness and algae) he will not break it. This goes for the tailgate on the red 1400. I'm not sure quite what it's like now but was certainly well do-able. The problem of course comes when deciding how far to go with a relatively low value car. I would imagine a lot are technically restorable (apart from the Panhard) but how far would you want to go is something else...

Which model Pashley? I have a 1930's Pashley trade bike which I cleaned up and got going last year. On the trike side I have a '53 Dayton Flyer with a Stevens Trike conversion, a '56 Hardings ex health authority loop fame model, a '58 Higgins, an '82 home built recumbent and a '91 Pier Gynt LWB delta recombent.

Ah yes, I know the one you mean - my brother is an agent for Pashley, although to be honest he doesn't sell many of their machines. I like their Guv'nor old school path racer, but at something like £800 for the single speed version I decided I could restore my 1903 Raleigh racer for a lot less!

Pashley are meant to be sending me out two new rear wheels as the origionsl ones were untreared and have crumbled where the spokes go into the hub, evidently its a known issue
