  1. That’s good to hear, I’ll have to look for a copy.
  2. Mine is no show car but despite needing some welding for the mot remains very roadworthy & slowly/regularly gets bits replaced. To get another would cost more than I have it insured for but it’s hard to justify an increase without an independent report. Things like this don’t help either
  3. Wished I could have bought if from him at the time... the more things change, the more they stay the same. 😌
  4. Was gutted for the previous owner but good to see you’ve taken it on and will be following with great interest. 👍
  5. Looking forward to reading about the swap.
  6. Great to hear that the ignition module has helped a lot, glad you're having a bit more fun now, there's something about driving them that just makes you smile 😁 looking forward to hearing of further progress 😎

  8. Low mileage, 1 owner, looks good but the description about the seats is a tad ambitious. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1263860
  9. Is it this engine? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_153_4-cylinder_engine
  10. I discovered that the ignition control module on the heat sink under the coil can work well enough to run but play up under strain. If you do replace it, please note that you need a thin layer of proper heat-sink compound too. If the module is original, the heat-sink compound is probably more like limescale by this time & the lack of cooling is cooking the module.
  11. I never really got the weird Cav vs SRB thing but hey ho. Had to smile recently when reading a translated Opel forum & somebody posted a MK1 Cavvy saloon, the response was something like “hey, that’s cool, a Manta Sedan” I haven’t seen this Sportshatch on FB but it could be. There was a nice fairly original blue one near Gloucester that sold a couple of weeks ago. There’s a white one in Kent that’s still up for sale would make a decent car too. Within the last month the 88 Black Manta GT hatch that was rebuilt as a GTE in Bridlington & is still on Car & Classics sold. Oh no, I’m becoming an anorak 😱
  12. Seems a bit optimistic with no mot https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/vauxhall-cavalier-gls-sh-1979-1979-cc/1382080770?
  13. I don’t remember exactly but he’s definitely come down quite a bit. It’s got decent recent history that can be seen in threads on here & seems to require very little serious work so C5k feels like a good deal 🤷‍♂️
  14. That’s a quick flip
