There's a few familiar cars there in that lot!

 

I thought you might know most of them being down that part of the coastline. Surprised you weren't there mate.

1/3 of the fleet in shot.

Going to find somewhere new for the Sierra because the garage it's in leaks. Badly. "Instant Barn Find" facility could prove lucrative long term though.afdfb2311a6144a66d58f1572cd67281.jpg

I was at a show at Otley College, I'll put up some photos shortly.

The log book has now arrived for the 620, yesterday i had to replace the water pump again as the shitty one from ECP decide to piss water out again which was a right pain and the alternator which is straight under the thermostats got soaking wet and now has a red battery light on all the time when switched off. We think a diode may be faulty now so I'll have to get that repaired. Then it's for sale, if i still have it by shitefest then I'll use it for that. The P6 is still here too even with all the "Thats too cheap etc" comments.

So as mentioned above,I was asked to display a few cars from my car club at the Otley college by my mate who's the lecturer at the motor engineering department for their big day out event, it was a nice day actually, lots of horses and sheep for the misses and kid to look as well as other animals and stuff, a bit of brick laying and tree felling and playing with tractors.

 

We got around 15 cars or so which wasn't too bad considering there was a few bigger car shows on today and people didn't know what to expect at this one. A few of us even got a VIP tour of the departments workshops, they get a lot of cars donated by public to work on, namely a lot of MGF's and Rover 25's, a few Focus's and a Fiat Stilo, i guess ther was about 20's in storage all to be stripped and rebuilt.

 

AS for cars, we had these, this Escort is a Cararet with 36000 miles.

Apparently this is a Nissan Silvia S15.

This RS Turbo came down from Norfolk, the car in front on the way hit and killed a deer, they ran over it and took off the exhaust and spent a while removing bits of deer from under it.

If was offered this Cavalier 1.6 Base once for £5000! Then my mate bought it and offered it to me for £1000 last year, now he's looking for around £1500, it's only done 44000 miles.

Old transit embarrasses modern Hyundai.

I drive to and from my house build project every night after work. On the way home, there is a stretch of road that I can free wheel down. It's 2.1 miles of roll that contains two notable uphill sections and two sharp corners. And a junction.

Obviously, I coast down this section every night, trying to beat my maximum distance up the final hill.

Tonight I was in the transit. I thought the wind resistance would count against it and that I would probably not make it passed one of the uphill sections. I would also have to slow down more then the Hyundai for the first sharp corner. Speed carried round this corner is crucial but braking is required as it's at the bottom of quite a steep section and death would befall me if I didn't slow down.

The old tranny gubbed the Hi'n'Dry. It made it passed the road sign. I've never been near the road sign before.

Now, I've been doing a lot of physics lately, as daughter had a physics exam last week and I have been helping* her. At first I thought it must be the extra mass increasing the potential energy to be converted to kinetic, but surely the mass after equals the mass before? The m cancels!! Plus, more resistive forces due to slab frontedness.

Think I'll check the Hyundai doesn't have a sticking brake.

Less rolling resistance on narrow commercial tyres rather than low profiles? More commanding view of the road allowing more speed to be carried round first bend?

I think the Omega is still such a good looking car ...

72EC3227-3A78-48AE-9A4F-BF4E766DF331_zps

Dragged the MV6 out of its 18 month slumber today. It hasn't even been started in that time, took a spare battery with me but before changing it I tentatively stuck the negative lead back on the current battery and she fired into life!

All 4 tyres blown up and a gentle move up the road to bring it home took place.

Looks cleaner in the picture, it's become absolutely manky in the short time it's been off the road. I will jet wash it tomorrow then make a decision on what I'm doing. I will need to throw a few quid at it for MOT I think.

So as mentioned above,I was asked to display a few cars from my car club at the Otley college............

 

Looks like it was a good day out, I'd love to have a good look at the DAF/Volvo pair. Shame I couldn't make it, especially with the weather being somewhat better than it was when we last met! It was a rather intense weekend of work on the house for me.

 

Did at least find time to drive a couple of my old things. Camry was used to get materials on Saturday morning, then the Laurel for dad's taxi duty yesterday. With the excitement of getting the 1200 and Camry back on the road I seem to have not used it as much recently, but it was as good as ever. Will use it for work today. After driving the 1200 it feels positively fast and sophisticated....

I've just had odd phone call from someone on ebay about my P6, a guy from Bolton who's came down to buy a P6 in Surrey but found it's a heap when he's got there so was ringing about mine whilst he's down south, he's offered me what the last buyer was going to pay without looking at the car in cash and is currently driving to Sittingborune first and then heading to mine to buy my car?. I'm at work and even though Mrs Triggers about she has the little girl so i feel a bit awkward about that and i haven't got the spares in the car yet or got it really do be collect after using it yesterday.

Maybe I'm worrying needlessly but it all feels a bit quick for my liking.

I'm knackered and filthy, just finished rustroofing the Landcruiser with Bilt Hamber;s finest, well i've done the cavities and the whole of the underside and chassis inside and out, still got to remove each wheel and coat the wheel arches and whatever small bits i might have missed, got a week off in two weeks so i'll do those then.

Got to change all the transmission oils so the underbody protection plates can stay off for a couple weeks and i'll do those oils at the same time.

 

Satisfying job if horrible, cost me around £230 in product this time between Zinc paint and the two different waxes, but still £250/300 cheaper than the pros would charge.

Drove the 305 to Heathrow. It was probably the least valuable car in its short stay car park. I captured its best side.

The autotest was great fun. It was also nice to see that more than one Mk1 Cavalier had survived beyond the show car owned by the Cavalier and Chevette Owners' Club.
I got a bollocking for standing too close to the action. My blagged 'one size fits none' hi-vis didn't offer me enough immunity.

Agreed. I took full advantage of this with the Xantia last year by having it MOT'd a full month before, where it failed on a few things! Was still legal to get it fixed and it passed with 3 days to go.

 

It's something I'm doing with the gooner as close to the 29th of June as I can, just in case! (test expires July 25th).

 

There have been threads about it as I asked it at the time, and all the MOT chaps said that unless it was a mega-fail (think subframe rotted out, axle snapped etc) it's fine. Indeed the guys at the test centre I used first time knew what I was doing as they gave me tips on how to fix it up (and confirmed all bar the emissions when I went back for the re-test that it failed on).

 

I then looked mega-dodgy by taking it for a test 33 miles away where it passed... (after being fixed!)

There hasn't been any rule change; your car has to be roadworthy (cue can of worms) regardless of whether it fails an early MoT or not and that's always been the case.
I confirmed this with the DVSA because a few people flagged it up at work.

A few media outlets including Garage Wire and Motoring Research picked up on a scrapcarcomparison.co.uk. article that got its knickers in a twist and that's where we think the misinformation came from.

Less rolling resistance on narrow commercial tyres rather than low profiles? More commanding view of the road allowing more speed to be carried round first bend?


I took the sharp corner slower in the T and yet the minimum speed which is on the first uphill section after the sharp corner was faster in the T than the H - 20mph versus 10mph.

I'll check tyre pressure first. Must be a momentum thing.

There hasn't been any rule change; your car has to be roadworthy (cue can of worms) regardless of whether it fails an early MoT or not and that's always been the case.
I confirmed this with the DVSA because a few people flagged it up at work.

A few media outlets including Garage Wire and Motoring Research picked up on a scrapcarcomparison.co.uk. article that got its knickers in a twist and that's where we think the misinformation came from.

Thanks, this looks like the offending piece. No matter, the Fusion is going to fly through m9

I generally get a trusted* chap to take it for me, then they can keep it and sort for the inevitable remedial Fix Or Repair Daily faults.

In other news, I saw my first STOMIL at the Grampian Transport Museum's 'How Many Left' show yesterday.


Was that on the UAZ?





Also, I clocked that Maestro in the car park! Thought it was just a local old giffer who owned it.

Yes, it was.

The Maestro belongs to one of the PC crew.
