  1. I was at Manchester Airport in 2003 for Concorde coming in on it's last flight. Was an amazing atmosphere but rather sad.. I'd been a fan of Concorde for years and used to watch it leaving Yeadon with my Grandparents. Got some pictures but was still early days for digital cameras.
  2. Interesting one (IMO...) Parent's car - MOT due 14th June. Was extended to 14th December. Dad took it for an MOT on 11th June so was within the original test period, not actually reached the extended period yet but expiry showed 14th December online so extension was in place. New expiry date shows 10th June so he's actually "lost" 4 days of test.
  3. Brother's car - MOT was due 11th May. Was extended to 11th November just before the expiry. He had it tested on 15th June (during the extension period), test expiry date shows 14th June 2021.
  4. Pleased you got it after the uncertainty over the plate! What a beauty, looks very well specced. Looking forward to seeing the updates
  5. Had to quote this pic - just love it. Absolutely bloody brilliant work - really amazing stuff! I was chuffed to bits on your behalf when I read it was working
  6. Hope you don't mind me tinkering with the pic @SiC
  7. Here we go. I was actually going to do a joke edit where I scribbled across the camera in a contrasting colour but doing it properly was actually quicker and easier
  8. That is crying out for a large car port/covered area to be added to the front of the garage.
  9. What a brilliant save! Very much looking forward to following progress.
  10. Thats bloody brilliant! A friend had a late 75 until recently which was fitted with the very same wheels. I thought they really made the car, filled the arches very nicely and just generally suited it down to the ground.
  11. What a lovely idea Reb, and the "fake" screws are genious.

    Nice car! Not sure I've seen an S plate estate before, that's a very early example! I really rate these mk1 Focuseses. As long as they've had some sort of care and maintenance over the years then they still drive very well and are a decent steer, as you've found. A knackered one will quickly show it's colours. I haven't done it but you can add an aux lead to the CD head unit, have a look at this vid - might be cheaper/easier than replacing the HU: Speedo fail - is it just the speedo or all the dials? If just the speedo then it may be the sensor on the top of the gearbo
  13. My 2p worth, if you're on the fence then I'd get it fixed. I'm sure the garage will appreciate the business at this difficult time.
