Man as i read your story i got very sad, have a rosso red 145 as well, don't know how i would feel if i crashed it (except if it happened on a track day whistle.gif , normal)

Very happy to know there's a light at the end of tunnel for your 145! Hope it as goes well!



Thankyou all so much for your support and all offers of parts and help are very heartening. This is what a forum should be about coolio.gif . I will let you know how we get on. hopfully getting a donor vehicle at the weekend. Hey I might even get a spare engine out of this to play with too smile.gif

Speaking of which:

Heres proof that god did infact make the 145. Its in the bible.

psalm 145 verses 1 & 2. Inded fitting for both phase 1 and 2 models.

Verse 1. I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. worshippy.gif

Verse 2. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. worshippy.gif

I wonder what spalm 146 says whistle.gif

sorry about the shocking image quality. I need a new phone. but here goes.

heres my bella on life support.

and heres the donor car.

The one I crashed has the better paintwork and is mechanically sound so gonna use the other one for panels.

but looking at the donor i'll still need an offside wing and a grill as their not in great shape.

Once i'm done i'm gonna open it up to offers for parts. Then i'm weighing the donor car in.

Robin has already bagged the steering wheel, and handbrake and gear stick gaiters.

Full set of phase one wheels will be on offer though not sure of timescale yet.

gonna keep engine to have a as a rebuild project when i'm not so busy. its an ally top too.

so to give it a run down.

168,000 miles, every panel is a different colour red laugh.gif , 2 owners from new.

What it would need if i wasn't breaking it:

clutch, exhaust, tyres, resparay, belts, variator, battery.

weirdly six months ago it failed an mot on tyres only and thats it, then got rectified and sorted with an mot.

Good news is didn't pay much more than what i'll get at the scrap man. so i could well come out of this quits as far as parts go thumbsup.gif

Oh man, 1st pic is shocking, sad to look at... Didn't think the crash was that intense, how where you after it all happened?

The donor car looks in very good shape, so this means yours is going to look great too wink.gif After all it's an phase-1 QV whistle.gif

Well I can finally put the blue badge thing to rest. This car has extreme sunfade on one side. The boot QV badge is Green. the left QV badge is green, but the right QV badge is............you guessed it Blue their not special their just sun faded.


Re. me and the crash. That was 20 mph into a stationary ford transit connect. I now know why NewZealand banned them on safety grounds.

Me? I've been on pain killers since and forgot to take them today and only noticed thiis afternoon I had a sore head. I've got an interior light shaped bump on it and I have no recollection of about 24hrs after the crash. I think i may have had concousion. But i'm over that now.

I think the posts where i said i was scrapping my bella confirms the bump to the head. I have now seen sense and she's gonna come back stronger than ever.

Cheers fellas. coolio.gif

And heres what it says about 146's:

psalm 146 verse 1 and 2
I will praise the LORD all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

I interpret that to mean that 146's should bow down to 145's whistle.gif

I also recon that means 146 should bow down, it is different to 145s psalm.

I kinder already guessed the second one.
