  1. I am.pretty certain they stopped painting black sections of the wheels in 1981
  2. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/831739820649781/
  3. This was nearby and looks like it hadn't moved in a while so I took a mental note to leave an actual note upon return. Upon said return, lo and behold, it had gone!
  4. Jon - hope you don't mind me doing a bit of fly tipping on here from time to time. Spotted this in my missus hood a few weeks ago
  5. First car when I moved to NZ was a 1986 626GT which even had adjustable suspension button - sport setting made it roll slightly less! Great car - drove it all round the South Island with two bikes, a set of golf clubs and a tent!
  6. Funnily enough, I spotted a Croma on the road here in NZ just the other week. Had a drive of its Italian cousin the other week
  7. There are quite a few of those Blades knocking about. Would have thought they would be a wee bit nose heavy
  8. I have had the same issue with my 3.0S Capri for the last few years. Leave it for any longer than a couple of days and it takes heaps of cranking to fire up. Restarts immediately thereafter
  9. Bad for breaking cam chains I believe
  10. I seem to recall those Marina LE's were available only as a 1.3 - why didn't they do a 1.8 so it at least gave it a chance to match its good looks - classic BL shooting itself in the foot
  11. Loving the red 2.8i (as used to own one identical), the MG Maestro looks fit and also the 205 GTi 1.6
  12. Spotted at an American hot rod show today here in NZ. The chap standing nearby (the owner?) was clearly taken aback that someone would photograph it!
  13. As long as you don't mind having a RHD bike in Spain
