It's actually a BT (long wheelbase), but your shite recognition skills are still impressive !

Worst thing is, I didn't notice the double entendre until I proofread my post... I blame the paint fumes !

It's all about the rakish glasshouse angles on those Panhards. Can't wait to hear more.

Panhard made some of the most beautiful cars ever, truly an automotive giant that doesnt get 1% of the recognition it deserves. I take my hat off to you and am truly jealous!

Not much has happened chez Fraud over the past two months, as I've been super-busy with that annoying thing called "real life".

 

The Ignis has now covered 4K miles in my hands and I'm really enjoying the 1990s Japanese car ownership experience : I put petrol in it, and it takes me where I want to go with no fanfare. Just the thing one needs, when they have far too many cars and far too little time !

 

The ScAAB remains in use as parts chaser and trans-continental express*. In mid-September, it became reluctant to turn over, which took a while to diagnose but was easily cured with a new battery. I also investigated a high-speed vibration, that annoyed the hell out of me during a recent trip to the low countries. I was hoping that the front wheels just needed to be balanced, but when my local tyre fitters put them on the balancing machine we discovered that both wheels were slightly bent. So a new set of wheels is on my shopping list... The SAAB will also be going for its MoT in the next couple of weeks, so watch this space !

 

The Doloshite is running well but isn't getting used a huge deal. I do occasionally drive it to work, where it attracts looks of puzzlement and pity from my prestige*-marque-driving colleagues. With no more mechanical work to be done, I got started on the bodywork by going around the car and poking any suspicious-looking areas. This revealed that both front wings and the nearside sill are in need of some patching - typical Triumph ! I'll hopefully be able to do all the welding and filling over the winter, with a view to giving the thing a lower-body respray once the weather warms up.

 

Last, but not least, the 66 Kombi is ready for an MoT but won't be going in for one. I realised that, with the Dolomite around, there's little chance I would be driving the 66 much over winter. So there's no point in rushing it to the MoT station ; I'll do some more (cosmetic) bodywork over the winter and take it for a test in spring !

I thought the Dolomite was on the for sale list?

What's the status on the Panhard?

Why sell the Doloshite now for £1000 when I can spend a few hundred hours working on it and then sell it for... erm... £1000 ?

 

The Panhard is slowly being taken apart, in preparation for a veritable weldfest. I'll take some pictures of the scariest areas for the next blog update.

Exactly the principle I used on it, I think that I had earned about -57p for every hour I put into it. That's a result in my book.

Funny enough I was thinking of messaging you to find out if you still had it. I resisted as I'm supposed to be saving to move house (but we've not sold as quickly as I hoped) and one BL money pit is enough at the moment! Also I'm only allowed to own what I can fit on the drive, which is already occupied by a driveway ornament.

However I may ask my FiL (who really wants a VP Allegro) if he wants to be a temporary custodian, I use his driveway and he gets to drive whatever it is for free... And I get another storage location.
