Free magazines! Free Car! Everything must go!

I've been rooting through old boat and car magazines that I really don't want to transport back to the States. Must have at least 1000 left ( I have actually gotton rid of another 500 or so already.)

Seems a shame to me to just throw them in the recyling bin. If anyone wants a few/some/all, let me know. They are here for the taking.

Also have a 77 Dolomite 1500HL automatic in the garage looking for a new home. We are the second owners. Quite literally, first owner was a little old lady in Hove who kept the car in a garage the first 2/3rds of its life. We have kept in our garage the remaining 3rd.

Bodywork, interior and engine are excellent and it's done less than 65,000 miles. Brakes need to be looked at and it needs new rear shock absorber. If you want it, just bring a trailer to tow it home. The price is right - £0.00

If that was 2000 shape, in that condition, i'd be round first thing in the morning!

My mum had a 2000, like a fkkn tank! sad I know, but i'd quite like a 2.5 PI, but to find one in that condition would be a challenge, and it'd probably be worth a mint.

He won't be writing any more, that's for sure!

Blue velour.

Far away? Kidderminster is only 3 - 3 1/2 hours from here (unless they have moved the Sealine factory).

I'll be in the States till the 14th Jan. Give me a call on 0898 50 50 50 after that to arrange a time for you to pick then up.

Good thing youv'e got that big Nissan.

It beggars belief the difficulty in "selling" a free car!

What an excellent and absolutely thoughtful and compassionate idea.

Lets go for it.
