    Home and fed, what a great day!
    I'm glad you took loads of pictures, Will, coz I didn't. I took a couple of shit videos but I can't get them to play on the laptop, so bollox to 'em.
    Snagglepuss: Offering his car to internet randomers for a day's  racing? - What a legend! Thank you so much Will. I'd love to do it again given the chance, and repaying the favour by using a car of mine next time.
    And everyone there were helpful and welcoming, the organisers, the competitors, and all the other helpers, so I highly recommend any other newbies to come along too next time. I can't think of a cheaper way to have so much fun!

    question! has anyone ever taken a black cab round one of these courses/this course?
    I figured with the 25ft turning circle and all that malarkey it would be quite fun to see how one would do LOL
    or a Bond Mini car LOL!

    Final score... 
    What have we... it’s a 96 Saab 900 Finnish Floppytop Finesse.  it’s covered a mere 73,000 from new! Barely run in. It features the 2.3 petrol engine for extra thirst points, but it has to be said It has a nice turn of speed!

     The collection was largely uneventful despite the weather warnings. The weather was ok for the journey there. On arrival at an MoT station the owner met me and explained that he had bought the car a few years back and then given it to a mate. It was now back with him to sell as it has been replaced with an estate. His mate had the V5... But was on his way with it! He said to have a test s drive to check I was happy, which surprised me. 
    Once the V5/monies etc were sorted we set off to find a petrol station (which on Anglesey on a Sunday is easier said than done) so we could pez up and inflate the very low tyres. Then it started raining ruining my hopes of roof down fun!

     
    It drives well on the whole. The exhaust is blowing (was stated on the ad) and there’s somewhat of a clunky knock when turning right (which wasn’t). There is also a hideous droning sound between about 50 and 65 mph... Some things to investigate tomorrow! 

    Back home it was time to investigate... but it has gone dark so... 

    Interior is lovely leather. drivers seat has seen better days... 

    And it is utterly utterly filthy in there. Grim!! 

    Bonus finds... a best of Queen CD! 

    And so far 22p... 

     
    Conclusions: it’s far from a dog. The bodywork is in really good condition. And the engine pulls really well. The suspension knock is the only real worry, probably won’t drive it too far until I’ve looked at that. But for £302.96... you can’t go far wrong!

    Another days autotesting with Krujoe.

    Steed of choice


    Hairnet was seen in the vicinity.

    Drivers briefing


    Most of the entries were Micra shaped


    Waiting for Joe to set his times

    Cars


    We had a really interesting day including trying to solve the fuel starvation when enthusiastically cornering.

    Best if all Joe brought cake and gave me some to take home. Missus snagglepuss says I can have more friends like Joe!

    The Micra acquired itself perfectly - it perhaps would have benefitted from PAS.


    Can't wait till next time.

    Hi Guys ,
    After about 6 years absence I am back . Big thanks to Beko1987 and Chaseracer for managing to sort my forgotten email address and password .
    Anyway a lot has happened in 6 years and the cars we (my other half and I ) have seemed to accumulate is a total of 43 vehicles .
    I am completely out of control and off the rails . I just can't say no ! 
    Anyway to start off with this was a car I rescued last year . A 1979 Datsun 160j sss.
    She is incredibly rotten but I am slowly finding the panels I need but these things take time with obscure cars and of course a lot of money .  
    These cars are very rare and I believe in single possibly just in to double figures. 
    The colour is fantastic . I can't think of a nicer colour than turquoise .
    When the weather gets better we are going to get her running . 
    Next car to mention will be ....
    Cheers

    Look at the friggin state of this. Would just about look tolerable in a seaside family photo with 2 beaming 5 yr-olds sat in waving their arms about and parping the horn. But an actual responsible adult travelling about in it? GTF.

    KruJoe reacted to wuvvum in Knock knock...Whos there?...Oh hi, I was just wondering if the Toyota Corolla was for sale?   
    I used to know a lad who was brilliant at picking up free cars by knocking on people's doors.  On one occasion he'd come with me to drop off a Saab 99 at a localish Saab specialist.  After dropping it off we realised that we'd missed the last bus back to Norwich.  I was grumbling somewhat about the 6 mile walk back to Norwich, but his response was "don't worry, we'll probably find a car on the way back".
    In the next village we stopped at the Spar shop, and he spotted a MK1 Panda parked down the side of the shop looking a bit sorry for itself.  Matey went into the shop and came out 10 minutes later with the keys and logbook for the Panda.  We jumped in and he drove it back to Norwich.  Clutch was slipping like a twat and it had no T&T, but it saved us a walk...

    Will, I really fancy having a crack at this, could you please put my name down for one of your drivers' places? I don't expect to be competitive, but it looks like a laugh, just what I need to boost my mojo. 
    I'm just back from winter in Thailand, so it'll be great to have a catch-up too.
    Cheers!
