Yes, of course. Strangely enough, you would of thought that being a rural idle, Devon and Cornwall would be awash with decent Landrovers for sale. Not so. The majority of decent clean ones seem to be oop North. Especially the 4.0 litre V8.

Ah well, I'll just bide my time. One will turn up.

Anyway. Thanks for help guys but I have found one. Driving up to have a look before parting with cash.

Cheers, Tiger. That's exactly the sort of thing I'm after. However. I saw this particular one on Autotrader. Drove up and had a look but it's scratched to fook. I wish they would be fooking honest in their description to save people like me wasting my time.

Double the value???? S'not a Skoda y'know! It was in the garage 3 weeks back for the MoT and my man in Havana (Carharrack) said 2 customers were asking about it.Tis 18 years old with 100K. MoT ? Straight through with 2 advisories including tyres. Agh .. the tyres ... no theres a story.

Anyway just for POI this may help bringing it back from up North

I'm selling my 206. It's in dreadful condition inside and out - there are numerous dents and scratches on the exterior, and the interior smells of rotting food, crumbs, and despair (the other day I finally located the source of an unpleasant smell - there was a bottle of milk under the passenger seat that expired in June 2014). It is uneconomical, and handles like a shopping trolley towing a yacht. It also has a mysterious tendency to blow its headlights, and has gone through four clutch cables in the past year.

£7,995 ono.

Buy a bottle of milk with the same sort of top etc - swap the tops over - go back for a refund if you can remember where you bought the milk from in 2014 and say ''you've just sold me this milk etc etc''. Rant In case you feel nervous I'll get my 2 x sons to go with you wearing dark specs, black coat and carrying a baseball bat each. That'll get you your 50p back for sure.

top quality cars 206s are we had them as company cars over 3000 a year nationaly. Mine use to cut the engine when the fuel gauge hit the last quarter. A really good fault when your going down the a38 at 70 cough ish and your engine cuts out and you have no breaks or steering.

dont even get me started on electrical faults. blowing bulbs was a common fault.

Our shitroen keeps blowing lamps. Front and back. Replaced both front in the last year and both rear ones twice in the same period. The radio/ cd has now developed a beeping noise and the garage won't touch it for fear of 'feckin the whole electric system up' (their words not mine! Shocked )

I think I know your sons Tony. Blond twins, rugby forwards (up the Boro etc?) - yeah, I wouldn't muck around with either of them! Book them into accompany me to Penryn Asda.

French cars = disasters waiting to happen. Generally, you won't have to wait too long.

Ssssshhhh ..... they often deny I'm their Dad!!!! Can't think why? I'm in Asdeers 5 out of 7 days so I've probably walked right past you. Saw a young lady in Asdeers last week by the mens clothes and I said to her ''there's a baby clothes sale by the escalator'' She said ''I havn't got a baby'' I replied ''well we could fix that on the way'' - she replied Rant
