Ough! Ouch! Thats two jabs I have recieved so far this day! First one from Trident who says we cant mention the IC word in case Bob gets upset.Quit right too as this is a microcar forum. ;)  I think its worth mentioning though whilst on the subject of the villiers motor that it served the s### wagons very well for an extensive period, no problems with jumping out of gear or the clutch bearing breaking through the ali housing either like the sachs engine. Dont tell me this doesnt happen because I have two pairs of casings in my workshop with this damage. I thing Al is right in suggesting that Bond owners in the past were tight or else brasic and run there cars on a shoe string hence the failures. Second jab, from young Perry, thinks Bob doesnt like the fact that Scoot prices are rising, I never denied that only its funny how Perry only talks up the values of the cars he happens to own! :D :D Still I will see him on sunday , shame he wont be risking driving his extrememly usable and valuable scoot to the Battlesbridge show! ;) ;)

There was a nice Mk 1 Scootacar being advertised for sale by Dave Morgan at the National Microcar Rally in Malvern earlier this month.


yes, there was but it sold very quickly  ;), hardly surprising at the price though.  Almost too cheap not to buy

Ollie had to correct all the faults missed by the idiot who tried to restore it first time.  The P50 will be better I am sure  ;).
Any way, Ollie has plenty to do getting Perry's Tippen Delta roadworthy then there is his  MkG estate to do   :D

Ahh! That makes sense. I thought the P50 was the one that was badly restored? Didnt it blow up on the IOM? This is where I'm still at with my Isetta, going over all the previous owners bodge ups. Still, nearly done now mechanically at least. Its much better talking about Perry when he's not on line isnt it! I dare say the barrage will come later tonight!

The P50 is not that bad but does need a good going over to make it 100% correct.  The engine is a bit weak but it did not blow, Perry just needed to thrash it a bit more !.  Lord Cyphus is back on line and Perry will follow soon I am sure  ;)

Just noticed the earlier post that it was Dave Morgan advertising the Mk1. I can only guess that must have been my X car. Was it pale blue by any chance?

Yes, your old pale blue one , TSV923. 
Your maths is letting you down Lord Cyphus.  I was up to 5.5 three years ago when I got the silver Mk2 just as you were thinking about the same one ;D.
The only way to drive a Peel is thrash it very hard and make it like it.  The DKW lump will take a good beating and only the big end will fail eventually.  Perry has a NOS 804 160 4.2ps genuine Peel engine to assist the rebuild of is original and then it will be fit for a further thrashing but in a more original factory finish I hope  ;)

remember that blue p50 that was on ebay and was deemed to be a fake advertised as a genuine one?its in this weeks classic car weekly going up for auction at one of the auction houses,estimate £15,000-25,000

going to be some upset faces once the new owners find out what it really is
