As Im in a lazy mood today, sat here waiting until its time to go to work, I decided to check if this car was still around.
I bought it with 90k miles on the clock and misdiagnosed head gasket failure by a garage.
Typed FT02 HLM into the Gov. Mot checker and lo and behold its still going strong. 166k miles on the clock and passed its MOT in March with no advisories.  :)

My current project (almost finished) is a bit more of a low tech job.  ;D

The little Chicken chaser (aka Honda Cub C90 - the biggest selling vehicle ever, by a long way  :P ) is now very tidy and original, as I spent approx. 100 hours restoring it over the winter.
I wouldnt be seen dead on it. Its even getting transported to the MOT station in the back of a van.  ::) ;D
However, I paid 200 for it, spent another 200 restoring it and wont be selling it for anything less than a grand, possibly more.  ;)
The Omega in the thread all those years ago was purchased for 300, spent another 300 (and many hours in the freezing cold) on it, and sold it on the bay of fleas for 1200.
Im a sad old fickir I know, but it warmed the cockles of my heart today when I saw that it has covered another 76000 miles and is still going strong.  :)

P.S. for anyone who has joined in recent year, the original thread might be worth a read. Its the kind of thing that used to appear on OOF from time to time when it was a busier forum with a lot of active members.  ;)

Saw this thread and began reading it,it took a while for the penny to drop that is was from 2012 :D Still an interesting read even now.The "90" looks very well and a testament to your work :y Most of the cars I've owned I'd be glad to know had gone to the crusher ;D others I don't really care whether they have or not,but yes there are the odd one or two which at the back of my mind I hope are still about.

I just went through all my old cars (well, the ones I can remember the registrations for), and not one of them is still alive ;D
