  1. 1934 AUSTIN 7 ALLOY BODIED 750 SPEEDEX SPORTS SPECIAL. This looks like a pile of bits made into a fairly tidy looking car but I do like the idea of a fairly old special. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1934-AUSTIN-7-ALLOY-BODIED-750-SPEEDEX-SPORTS-SPECIAL/313391202594?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  2. 1969 Vauxhall Victor. These look better with the 4 headlights IMHO. It makes me cringe seeing a crusty old car picked up on fork blades tho. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1969-Vauxhall-Victor/174605402162?hash=item28a74b0032:g:nIcAAOSwmOpgCZsO
  3. As an ex Volvo 144 244 245 164 owner I like the older Volvos and spotted this at the 'ring at the 2010 N24 along with some other Overlanders.

  5. Some years ago I had a Scimitar SE6a and I changed the carb on it, keeping it idling while I faffed about adjusting it. I gave it a test drive and noticed it smelt of petrol, then pulled in when I noticed it REALLY smelt of petrol. I opened the bonnet to see quite deep boiling petrol in top of the still running V6 engine with distributor in the middle...... 😵. I switched it off, walked home and went back later with the original carb and refitted it at the roadside to drive home. My lucky day I reckon!
  6. Yea, the E mirror wiring regularly fails but not heard of fires. I've not done mine because faff getting mirror off, door card, air bags etc.
  7. Sad to see this and a bit near home for me. My 2007 E320 passenger side mirror wiring is gradually failing,, it's lost tint, heat and up and down tilt. The E's are known to fail though I've not seen a fire before but I should use this as a wake up call.

  9. Snap On Eurotools not to be confused with Snap On proper. The chrome doesn't stay on leaving razor sharp bits sticking up. Mine were replaced free because of this but the 2nd time they just refunded me because they were all the same. I have quite a lot of Snap On branded stuff and these are the worst.
