I was manager of a Motor Parts shop when I bought it 35 years ago as a project.


I love that picture, was it originally old English white?

Its quite annoying as I wasn't expecting that, just did it to see what would happen. Then spent all of the next day on the lesser zx...

Next year! Get it's current paint job blown over with clear and I'll shine it up

It was white with red leather and I had it painted in 1986 red and trimmed it in tan.

1966 - 1986 white

I am not sure if I ever told the result of the Stag story.

Back in February my brother offered me his Stag that had been off the road for 10 years. (Page 43 post 1280) I bought it with my friend Derek and today we went to see what we had bought. We have got the front wheels to turn after taking the brake pad pins out. The rear wheels are jammed and we don’t know how to release them as we can’t get at the adjusters, we have tried a club hammer.

The engine turned with the plugs out using grips on the front pulley but locked at one point. You could back it off and it would also stick backwards. We removed the rocker covers but could not see anything wrong, then turning the crank with the grippes it just kept turning and all seemed well. My theory is there was a value stuck and it freed so the engine turned fine. We then used the starter and it spins over freely pumping up oil pressure. There may be a noise from the starter but it seems to work fine.

Next stage is to drain the stale fuel and get the SU fuel pump working.

The Stag and BX GTi sit side by side waiting to see which is first out of the starting block, but today the BX jumped ahead after the new metal heater pipe was fitted that Ruffgezzer got me and all seems well. I gave it a short test drive on a private unmade road and I feel confident enough to book it an MOT near home, 30 miles away and drive it there.

I even gave it a wash, so now I just need to sort out the logistics of getting it to the MOT station.

Fantastic :) well done

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

The Sovereign was the outcast than nobody wanted at a Citroen show, but at the end of the day a couple of guys who helped me get Citroens home wanted a ride in it, so it did make it to the show ground.
