The story goes ... someone bought a Calibra 4x4 Turbo for 250 quid on ebay (!!!). The guy decided to tell everyone on said car forum. The two guys drive down there, only to find someone from the forum had read the messages and been extremely sly and got there before them and bought the car pretending to be them.
Then on the way back, his head gasket decided to give up and launch about a gallon of mayonaise out of the expansion tank!!
So harsh!

your talking about ben (chavtasitc) then went down to essex in an astra mk3 not a rover. so dunno where you got the story from cos i got chance to read it on migweb and on clubcalibra. ben traveled down with AL who drives an astra.

Plus they made it back. or is the car of the person who bought the cali from under ben's nose if so they got what they deserve.

^ He went down in the Astra. I found out this was the day after, and not Calibra related. wink
It's Ben's Metro, his Calibra has been getting rebuilt for a while.

So ben hasnt got a car at all then, his calibra is still in the rebuild stages if im not mistake, as dazza bought a set of pistons from him, so i assume he must still be doing the work on it.
